Please note that our personal guiding service is only available to clients booking a Self-Drive tour (please see our Self-Drive tours page) including hotel accommodation.

In addition to all the self-guide material which we will provide, we can also easily arrange for a local 'real' guide to pick you up at your hotel to take you (in their vehicle) on a tour of just about any battlefield on the Western Front. You will not be expected to join a group as our experienced, independent guides specialise in providing a personal service, and focusing on areas of specific interest to you and just you (such as where a relative served or where soldiers from a particular regiment or country saw action).  

A personal guide for a day costs a lot more when compared with joining a fixed-itinerary ‘public’ tour, but is by far and away the best way to see the battlefield, especially bearing in mind this may be your one occasion to make the visit you are have in mind.  A personal tour is also better suited for the quiet exploration and reflection of past events, without the possible distraction of others making up your group - and the need for the tour leader to stick to a fixed time schedule!

This service will be included in the total cost you will pay, thus making your battlefield visit a seamless experience with everything arranged by us in advance.
