From Paris: Battle of Arras & Vimy Ridge Day Tour by Minibus
- Pickup available
- Duration: 11 hours
An excellent tour with Nicola, a born teacher with a deep understanding and an obvious love of history. While she highlighted the Canadian experience, she was able to put it in the larger context of the whole WW1 story, for both combatants and the local life in the area. She was masterful at judging appropriate pace, and was most solicitous of my needs throughout the day. Best of all, she helped me reach a very personal goal. I owe her many thanks, and you should hope she will be your guide too.
Was a great day trip. Nicola was an excellent guide who provided an ongoing commentary on the deep history of the events that lead up to, and the detailed activities on the day of the Canadians' taking of Vimy Ridge.
The tour guide was so incredibly helpful and accommodating (I believe his name was Julien; I hope I am spelling that correctly). He really went above and beyond to make sure that our tour experience was phenomenal!
Julian was excellent, very informative, able to bring both WW 1 and WW 2 to life so that you could understand what the French, Allies and Germans went through.
It was an amazing, emotional visit. Every Canadian should visit this site. Our guide was very knowledgable and polite. Had very good English.
