Western Front Explorer

This 4-day small-group tour provides the perfect opportunity to explore the Australian battlefields of the Western Front in comfort and convenience. We will walk in the footsteps of the Anzacs on all the main battlefield sites in the Somme, Flanders and the Ypres Salient. The itinerary has been personally designed by Mat McLachlan, and the expert historians who escort this tour have been hand-picked by Mat. The Western Front Explorer Tour is the next best thing to being there with Mat himself! Either begin your tour in Paris or Lille, a great option if you are catching the Eurostar from London or travelling from elsewhere in Europe! With weekly departures between April and November, you are sure to find a tour date that fits perfectly with your plans.
