5/5 (17 reviews)
  • Description

 Excursion available in a small group or on private basis

With this trip down memory lane, we are offering you the chance to discover the most important sites of the Somme battlefields.

The scars of the Great War are still visible: trenches, mine craters, obliterated vegetation and villages razed to the ground. 

Follow your driver-guide and discover the area which was home to one of the most terrible battles of the Great War. Plunge into the history of the 1916 Battle of the Somme by visiting the John Monash Center
You will discover the villages of Villers-Bretonneux, Péronne as well as La Boisselle. Places where the Australian, British and Canadian troops earned renown. All of these places bear witness to our unwillingness to forget the past.
You will have lunch at Péronne in a tasty, typical restaurant.

Our tour guide Danielle was awesome. We only had 6 in our group. Danielle was very knowledgeable and welcomed our questions. The meal was first class too. We had plenty of time at the John Monash memorial. I would recommend this tour especially to Australians. This was the only tour which picked us up at our accommodation so no stress.

I have nothing but praise for the Somme tour I participated in on May 25. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic as she gave us details about the battle and the area of France where the fighting took place. Can't wait to schedule another tour with Paris City Vision when I make a return trip to Paris--hopefully next summer!
