Join us as we explore the tremendous achievements of our Canadian soldiers on the battlefields of Ypres, the Somme, Passchendaele and Vimy during the Great War.
We have been blessed with our local guide, Andre de Bruin. Andre has a superb way of telling the story of what the Canadians did, experienced and delivered in a way that is not as heavy and dark as what may be expected. After telling the story of what happened Andre is on hand to go deeper into the history on a personal level with guests. Please note that this is not a typical battlefield tour that is heavy on names, dates, facts and figures.
This is the last year we will be running this program.
