" I have never thanked you Robert for all you did to make me feel at home on my first trip.
I don’t have to tell you that it was all totally overwhelming.
I really wish I was able to go on this year’s tour. I have seldom met someone with so much passion for his subject; never stop and follow it wherever it leads you!
Thank you once again and maybe we will meet on another battlefield somewhere. "
“ Sheila and I wanted to thank you for the great time we had touring the Waterloo battlefield with you. The two days were extremely well organised, we found you very knowledgeable in relation to your subject and we really enjoyed your company.
You handled our different knowledge of the event very well and we appreciated your engaging commentaries and the way you interacted with us rather than just lecturing.
My understanding of the whole campaign was greatly increased by the initial visits to Quatre-Bras, Ligny and Genappe and walking the battlefield brought everything vividly to life. ”
" The seven-day Waterloo Mercer Trail was superbly organised and led.
Robert's depth of knowledge and spirit of adventure led us into an deep understanding of the campaign, and brought to life the battlefield in really fascinating detail! We were able to relive the extraordinary events on the ground in 1815, from living quarters to gun positions; I was thrilled!
I recommend Robert to anyone who wishes to combine historical accuracy, fun, local knowledge and good meals! "
"Gareth has an engaging presentational style and ensures everyone receives a warm welcome within the group. He brings the battle to life with his excellent knowledge of the events leading up to, during and after the 18th June.
He uses plenty of interesting, mainly allied, anecdotes and personal accounts to ‘paint pictures’ of the action. His familiarity with the topography enables him to explain passages of the battle in detail which will delight novices, intermediate and experts alike. Highly recommended. "
Gareth took a group of 20 of us on a guided tour of the battlefield site of Waterloo in June 2015. We had already been to the museum and watched the huge re-enactment of the battle, but to actually walk the battlefield site with Gareth was something very special.
Gareth’s enthusiasm for his subject is both compelling and infectious. His knowledge of the complete battle and how it unfolded was most impressive. We learned about the armies and regiments that took part, where they were positioned, who attacked who etc., but what was really interesting was all the many little stories that Gareth related to us. The ‘Waterloo teeth’, Henry Percy’s dramatic mission after the battle in order to tell the King of the great victory, what happened to the many bodies littered across the battlefield, what happened to their bones, the medical methods used at the time, and so on.
Gareth had a real knack of not just telling the story of the battle but illuminating it in such a way that it became alive!
Gareth and Mary entertained us with a fantastic educational and sociable experience with this guided tour of the Waterloo battlefield.
We found Gareth’s passion for, and authoritative knowledge of, the subject truly inspirational and he delivered it in a way which brought the history of such a pivotal period to life.
A unique and fascinating experience!
