We have a passion for military history – both Rod and Jackie have served in the British Army. Rod is one of the few battlefield tour guides operating today who can combine an encyclopedic knowledge of Historic Military events, with the skills attained through eighteen years in the Grenadier Guards and Instructor at Sandhurst. This means that the significance of each battlefield location is fully revealed and brought alive for you through the eyes of a soldier.
We can take you on a set itinerary tour during your stay, and you can experience the locations where the momentous events took place – if it's the Somme, a standard tour will comprise the main locations of the campaign – from the famous diversionary attack at Gommecourt on the first day, down the line through Serre, Beaumont Hamel, Thiepval, the Lochnagar Crater, and the famous "Horseshoe of Woods”, where much of the attritional fighting took place in the high summer of 1916.
Alternatively we can construct a completely bespoke itinerary just for you, whether you're a party of one, two or a group. If you are looking to retrace the steps of an ancestor, our bespoke service is for you – and it may not cost you more than our standard rates. It’s an integral part of our service to ensure your stay with us fulfills all your expectations – and more besides. With us, the emphasis is always on you – our number one priority. We always aim to surpass your expectations.
