Our tour starts from the historical town of Peronne, an area in which most visitors travel around the battlefields by car or bus; however, on our tours we rarely see other vehicles on the lanes we use to traverse the area. Over three days we will give you an insight from a different perspective of this famous battlefield, traveling in a small convoy of 5-6 vehicles, on tracks once trod by infantry. You’ll receive CB commentary as we drive along our route so you can really get a sense of where troops came from and what their objectives were. To book, click on the link for your chosen date. We only require a £100 deposit per vehicle or full payment if the tour is less than six weeks away. Eight weeks before the tour we will send you a balance request and invoice. Once the balance is paid we will send you an information pack including meeting places, times, booking references etc.If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
