Packed meals are also provided unless indicated on the itinerary. For Silver Tours there are no meals provided except breakfast in the hotel.

 

How many do you require for the tour to go ahead?
We require 25 for the tour to go ahead. We however never go over 40 on a tour except when it is a private tour. We believe that this will ensure that you will have a more enjoyable and comfortable tour. It also enables us to treat all passengers as individuals and so make your tour a more memorable one making it selective to the needs of that particular tour group. Our walking tours however require 15 people for the tour to go ahead

Yes.  You must take out Travel insurance and we recommend you obtain a European Health Insurance Card. We will require this information before you travel

Will it be possible to request a visit to a particular grave or memorial?
If the memorial or grave is on or near our planned itinerary and if we have time we will endeavour to make a visit. However a number of memorials and graveyards are not always possible to visit due to their locations. To accomodate this seperate transport will be provided one day during the tour. Please request any special visits at your time of booking and we will endeavour to accomodate your wishes

 

Will it be possible to lay a wreath on a grave or memorial?
Each passenger receives a poppy cross to lay where they wish and 2 passengers get drawn from the hat to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate. If you wish we can order wreaths for you through the Poppy Fund. Please inform us at your time booking and we will advise you of the additional cost for this request

Yes, a donation goes to the Poppy Fund and we hold a raffle on the tour where the proceeds go to Service Charities
