Fabulous day with Phil retracing family footsteps. He had personalised the visit to cover all that involved our grandfather and included Adelaide where we are from and battle of Dernancourt. Really worthwhile and Phil is knowledgable, funny and an Aussie.

Phil and his team excelled themselves again. With hospitality, knowledge, friendship and appropriate humour they bring the experience to life. A special mention to Jeffery for his dedication to the Aussie contribution to the defence of his home land, Belgium.
