Our driver Olivier was exceptional - safe driver, amazing knowledge of history and able to make it interesting ALL day. Definitely worth doing this trip if you have limited time and want to see as much as you can in one day. Plenty of time to experience each place even though you are on tight schedule. Lunch was at amazing pub "Tommy" - incredible amount of memorabilia.

Met Olivier in Amiens, there was only another couple with us in the really nice airconditioned Mercedes van. (The A/C was appreciated as it was a really hot day) I just loved the tour, Olivier amazed me with his knowledge of the battles, times and dates. The countryside was absolutely beautiful but the visits to the cemeteries were moving. (One lad was just 17 when he died)
Fantastic. Highly recommend it.
