Guided Visit of The Somme Battlefields from Paris in a Small Group

5/5 (9 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 Historial Museum in Péronne
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.

This tour was excellent. The tour guide communicated very well once microphone was sorted. Guide, Vincent, engaged in open and responsive dialogue with the tour party and provided information at the appropriate time and his communication was with the whole party. Lunch was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour with this guide.
