The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance Why we are different: We are NOT a travel or a coach company operating budget priced volume tours to battlefield sites with 'on and off the bus' 'set departure - set itinerary' battlefield tours, instead we tailor make ALL our Remembrance and Battlefield tours specifically to suit your needs. Our ability to create your own tailor made tour - ranging from 1 to 500+ persons makes us unique. And who knows, maybe you have a war hero in your family too!

The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance We can create your own 'one off'  travel experience by price, by itinerary requirements, by specific grave and memorial visits for your relatives, by accommodation, by transport and any other special 'out of the way' museum or other visits you require. We use  wherever possible central upmarket hotels and modern transport options - with a dedicated expert historian/guide and separate driver.

The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance Our tours are structured for all: individuals, small groups, family groups and larger groups. Both our Battlefield and Remembrance tours 'walk the ground' where your ancestors fought, often pinpointing the area where they fell and visiting their graves or memorial inscriptions (Tyne Cot, Menin Gate, Thiepval etc). Our expert battlefield historian guides can also do extensive family history research for your ancestors with a variety of *top level resources (*some actually closed to the public) such as the National Archives, Regimental HQ's, Army/Air Force records etc.
The Flanders Poppy - The Spirit of Remembrance We also have pretty impressive connections (see our Advisory Board) and a real depth and range of experience. It's also our management team and our tour guides - that we think makes us one of the best in the business in the field of battlefield tours and travel along with family history armed forces research.

We also have IMPECCABLE financial backing with full ATOL, ABTA and IATA travel licencing providing absolute financial security for you - our clients. Your money is SAFE with us. And - our online presence and website utilises the latest social media applications - offering a truly remarkable and rich interactive user experience  - where you can share your stories, dreams and questions with us and others - and become part of our amazing online community.

Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  Spirit of Remembrance as the name suggests - is a company that does more than run battlefield tours, it tailor makes ALL its Remembrance and Battlefield tours specifically to suit the clients needs and wishes, with an extensive menu of tours and options that a traveller can select from.

Poppy - Spirit of Remembrance  In broad terms these are individual, themed or group tours – however there is scope to mix and match by price, accommodation, and tour to suit the requirements and budget of the traveller. READ MORE about what we can do for you.
