Our Western Front Day Tours have been specially designed to make you feel welcome while delivering a unique experience that will stay with you forever.
Travel in comfort as you visit the Australian battlefields of the Somme with one of our specialist tours which have been designed to suite any occasion or travel requirement. Our day tours are flexible and can slot into any existing travel itinerary, plus we easily accommodate visits to graves, battle sites or other special areas of particular interest to you.
We have three premium Western Front battlefield day tours to choose from:
Your day trip has been organised at a relaxed pace, where you can enjoy places of beauty, of history, and the ever present reminders of how our countrymen, who fought with courage and determination, have left their scars of battle in the revered landmarks.
All of these tours are operated and run by a lovely English couple, Rod and Jackie Bedford, who are now local battlefield experts with an excellent knowledge of all battles and sites on the Western Front. The significance of each battlefield location is fully revealed and brought back to life for you, through the eyes of a soldier. You’ll also learn key insights into French culture and experience the very welcoming nature of the locals, especially to Australian visitors.
All battlefield trips commence from a respectable 9am in the beautiful city of Arras, which is a comfortable 50 minute journey from the Paris Nord railway station via the TGV (fast train) network. Most tours return in the late afternoon to give you time to rest before going out to explore the many chic restaurants and cafes available.
