Bespoke Geneology Guided Tours


Self-Drive Guided Genealogy / Bespoke Tours

These are tailor-made self-drive tours, we will create an itinerary from your specifications.  Tours can be built around a relative who served on the Western Front, a particular Regiment, Battalion or battle action, British, Australian or Canadian, provide us with a specific subject and we will compile an itinerary.

Bespoke tours can be arranged for individuals, couples, families or groups, vehicle bound, walking or a combination of the two.  Our British battlefield guides/researchers have an intimate knowledge of the western front they will research your specifications and put together a comprehensive itinerary.

Your researcher will compile a tour information pack, including simple to understand route directions/maps, GPS/satnav coordinates, suggested lunch stops and other points of interest.   A second bounded dossier will include all historical information and were available trench maps, aerial and panoramic photography old and modern, battalion and brigade war diaries, regimental and unit histories, soldiers service papers, medal entitlement cards, gallantry citations and more, all bound in a folder for you to keep.

As with our other tours the least expensive way to experience a bespoke self-drive tour is to stay at our accommodation  as your touring base. Alternatively our researcher can recommend accommodation, travel and transport to suit your specifications.  For an additional charge we can arrange accommodation and some travel/hire car options.

We like to think that we are very competitive with our prices. For Great War Tours to give you the best possible price we need to know just a few bits of information.  Each tour is priced on your requirements. We feel by answering a few questions on our enquiry form we can give you the most competitive and exact price. Our tours are very flexible any variations or size of group is possible.
