OUR TOUR GUESTS' QUOTES

"An outstanding, detailed study of the events leading up to and the ultimate Battle of Waterloo. Robert & Gareth are delightful, extremely knowledgeable guides. I had read much on the Battle of Waterloo. I was one of the reenactors on the field for the 2015 bicentenary. But I did not really feel that I could look at the terrain and know Waterloo. This amazing trip settled that! I enjoyed every minute of unique access to incredible history and the delightful company of these gentlemen! "

TF, Canada

"I have seldom met someone with so much passion for their subject; never stop!"

DG South Africa

"Our tour was superbly organised and led. The depth of knowledge and spirit of adventure led us to a deep understanding of the campaign, bringing to life the battlefields in really fascinating detail! I was thrilled! Recommended to anyone who wishes to combine historical accuracy, fun, local knowledge and good meals!"

RH, United Kingdom

"The engaging presentational style ensures everyone receives a warm welcome. It brings the battle to life with excellent knowledge of events, plenty of anecdotes and personal accounts to ‘paint pictures’ of the action. The familiarity with the topography will delight novices, intermediate and experts alike. Highly recommended."

DM, United Kingdom

"To actually walk the battlefield site with a genuine expert was something very special. The enthusiasm is compelling and infectious. But what was really interesting were all the many little stories ... a real knack of not just telling the story of the battle but illuminating it in such a way that it became alive!"

RN, United Kingdom

"We were entertained with a fantastic educational and sociable experience. The passion for and authoritative knowledge of the subject was truly inspirational and delivered in a way which brought the history of such a pivotal period to life. A unique and fascinating experience!"

RH, United Kingdom

"My wife will happily do more holidays with a military theme as long as it is with you."

JH, United Kingdom

"Thank you for the great time we had touring with you. Our days were extremely well organised 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 and walking the battlefield brought everything vividly to life."

AP, United Kingdom

"A thoroughly enjoyable tour to view the battlefields, including remoter areas, and talk about them in great detail with people who’ve made a special study of them with new surprises."

JH, United Kingdom

"Although I have studied the British Foot Guards in the Waterloo Campaign quite extensively, the three days I spent walking the battlefields has given me a greater appreciation for what they accomplished. It used to be said that a picture is worth a thousand words. A corollary of this might be, no description of a battlefield can ever substitute for walking the terrain. I cannot say enough about my Campaigns & Culture tour of Waterloo. It was everything that they promised and more! They have set the standard for Waterloo Tours!"
