On our Battlefields Tours, you can visit restored and recreated World War I trenches; trenches which marked the front line of fighting for some of the fiercest battles the world has ever witnessed. Our battlefields tours include Ypres, a city devastated by conflicts in the first half of the 20th century. No battlefields tour to Ypres would be complete without a visit to the Menin Gate to witness the Last Post Ceremony.
