Some of the testimonials from our happy customers on our battlefield tours:
“Together with a couple of friends I wanted to take a tour of First World War trenches and battle sites. After contacting several companies from the internet, some of which seemed rather remote and impersonal, we decided to go with Battleground Tours. The reason being, the person who I spoke to (Nigel Dunkerley) seemed genuinely enthusiastic and knowledgable about the subject.
As it turns out this was an excellent choice for what we wanted. Battleground Tours take smaller groups than the big operators, the benefit being a much more personal and friendly feel to the trip. Nigel knows his subject well, his itinerary took us to the heart of the important events of the war, to stand in the very positions the men were in, and to imagine what they endured.
The whole trip went like clockwork, the coach and hotel just the job.
I would have no hesitation in going with them again or recommending them to others.” Mr G M, Northhants
“A well planned trip. Everybody was pleased. Each individual, with Nigel’s help, found what they were looking for. Great Knowledge, well done.” Mr M K, Hertfordshire
“The four days from 10/13 July spent on the Battleground Tour of the Somme were some of the most fascinating, interesting and memorable days we have enjoyed for some time. Nigel’s knowledge of the battleground is immense and he was able to pass this onto us in such a way that events that took place nearly 100 years ago came alive. He took the time to research some of the group’s relatives and was able to take us to their graves and, in our case, the village where my father in law was wounded. Throughout, from start to finish the arrangements and organisation was excellent and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nigel and Battleground Tours to anyone wanting a World War One experience.” Mr and Mrs T C, Derbyshire
“The tour was / is well organised with good and comfortable travel by luxury coach and the tour took in many of the sites of the old battlegrounds. The commentary on each was very instructive and being a comparatively small party you received more personal attention. A very enjoyable tour.” Mr R B, Cheshire
“Had a great trip with Battleground Tours last July. Great Coach Good Hotel but the trip was made for me by our tour leader Nigel who was not only knowledgeable but clearly had a passion for his subject” Mr M G, Hertfordshire
