Our tour was 01/03/2014 the weather was cold & damp, Nathan’s knowledge was outstanding, we found the whole experience very heart wrenching, If you are visiting Bruges this tour is a must , if you start with a small knowledge of WW1 you come away with a lot more.

Nathan has just dropped us back at our hotel after what can only be described as the most thorough ww1 tour imaginable.

His knowledge and description of the individual events around flanders fields, gives you a real sense of how they unfolded between 1918 & 1914

He took us to places and showed us excavated artefacts that really shows you the sacrifices made my the soldiers of the great war

I would highly recommend this more personal tour, and will be advising my friends and family to enjoy it also

Thanks Nathan

Nathan was an excellent guide, with a far-reaching knowledge of both the local battlefields, and the wider historical context of the First World War.

Having researched my Great-Grandfather’s service in the Gloucestershire Regiment (which, unlike so many others, he survived), it was a unique and sobering experience to tread the earth he was stationed on in 1917.

It was a very busy day, with many miles travelled, and much information to digest, and being in a small tour group made it all the better. At one point we stopped off and entered a garage where we were able to see and safely handle some of the ’iron harvest’ which the ground still gives up nearly a century later - shells, Mills bombs, twisted rifles, and shrapnel.

If you know you will be in Bruges with a day to spare, or are trying to decide which battlefield tourguide to use, I wholeheartedly recommend Nathan. I have read many books upon the First World War, from overarching histories to individual accounts, but nothing compares to walking the land, visiting the cemeteries and memorials, and seeing how the landscape is still scarred by the ravages of war.

A memorable visit to Flanders. Nathan led us through the three major battles of the Ypres Salient and his choice of sites meant you could imagine the scene as it was in 1915-17. Well worth the effort to do this day tour.

How could you go to Brugge and not go on this tour? I felt drawn not only to see and understand more about the events of WW1, but to pay my respects to the men who fought for our freedom and this tour allowed me to do all of this. It was very personal as we were transported by a people carrier driven by Nathan, allowing us to have interaction with him.
Nathan was courteous and amenable; he was an Oracle of knowledge in all matters, not just WW1 events.
I know there were a few negative reviews last year, but I just couldnít relate to them on our trip.
Nathan provided all that his web site indicated and more.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him and the tour and thatís a lot from someone who is not easily pleased!
Thank you for a great day Nathan.
