The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance Our client testimonials simply say it all..
"My mother and I travelled with Spirit of Remembrance on their 2018 'Anzacs Remembered' tour. The culmination of this tour was attending the 100th anniversary Dawn Service at the Australian War Memorial at Villiers-Bretonneaux. The tour was absolutely wonderful and so professionally organized. This trip was quite significant for us, especially my 76 year old mother, so we could visit the many sites and places of battle where her grandfather had fought in 1917/1918. For me, it was being able to set foot in the places I had read so much about in history books and taught to students for so many years. Our transport, accommodation and meals on this tour were all A++. I would definitely recommend Spirit of Remembrance for anyone thinking of touring the Western Front Battlefields.. More testimonials
