 Ypres Salient Tour

This popular battlefield tour takes you to the frontline around Ieper (“Wipers”  to the soldiers), where the Allies withstood the Germans for 4 years denying them the passage to the Channel ports in France.

The famous Menin Gate Memorial with its Last Post Ceremony, Tyne Cot Cemetery and Memorial at Passchendaele, Essex Farm (John McCrae -In Flanders Fields”) and the preserved battlefield at Hill 60 with the Caterpillar Crater nearby are some of the highlights of the day which are a “must -see” for first-time visitors.

 

Whether your interests are general, specific requests, or you want to visit your ancestor’s grave, we always adapt the tour to your interests and needs.
