Battlefield-Guides.com is a family run business operating from the Somme region in the heart of the Western Front Battlefields. We are one of the only tour companies located on the battlefields offering a full range of touring options including accommodation.
Having our base on the battlefields allows us to offer competitive pricing for a full range of tours and accommodation. Our British battlefield guides have an intimate knowledge of the Western Front from the Belgian coast to Verdun in the south and beyond.
Our business is built on excellent knowledge, flexibility and value for money.
We offer Battlefield Tours for individuals, couples or groups. Tours offered include:
These can be conducted on any day of the year. Each tour follows a planned itinerary, although they can be flexible to fit around your requests or interests. A good example is our Somme Orientation vehicle tour. The cheapest way to experience a Guided Battlefield Vehicle Tour is by staying at our accommodation (Chavasse Farm) and allowing our guide to be a passenger in your vehicle. Alternatively, our guide can pick you up and drop you off at your arranged accommodation or transit point (i.e. Amiens, Lille, Albert, Arras or TGV Haute Picardie stations).
As per the guided vehicle tours above except that all of the areas are walked. A good example of this special way to see the battlefields can be found on our Success at Montauban walking tour. This walk covers the success of the 30th and the 18th Divisions on the First Day of the 1916 Somme battle and provides a great opportunity to study the difference in tactics between success and failure.
Tailor-made tours created to suit your specifications. Tours can be built around a relative who served on the Western Front, a particular regiment, battalion or battle action. If you provide us with a specific subject we will compile an itinerary to suit. These tours can be vehicle bound, walking or a combination of the two. Again, the cheapest way to experience this type of tour is to stay at our accommodation and allow our guide to be a passenger in your vehicle. Alternatively, our guide can pick you up and drop you off at your arranged accommodation or transit point (i.e. Amiens, Lille, Albert, Arras or TGV Haute Picardie stations).
