Hiking to bunkers & trenches from WWI
Robert_K
, Jun 2019
This was not the type of tour we expected with paved paths to the bunkers; monuments, museums, & cemeteries to visit. We hiked in tall grass, up and down hills and walked in the rain. We had mosquito bites and had to check for ticks when we got back to our hotel. Also there was no restuarant nearby to eat afterwards. Our tour guide did read from diaries from soldiers fighting at the time which we enjoyed.

tour of battle of Argonne Forest --sept. oct- 1918

Isabelle, our guide, was exceptionally well informed and knowledgeable about the geographic area.. she showed us numerous sites including trenches, bunkers, bomb craters, monuments, and similar. this tour was vigorous and one should be reasonably fit because it requires hiking and climbing, though nothing technical. Isabelle prepared carefully for our tour and ably guided us to the areas about which we were interested. We were very pleased with it. it exceeded expectations greatly.

Beware! this is NOT a easy walking...

Beware! this is NOT a easy walking tour. This tour should be sold with a caveat that there is extensive walking, climbing, etc. and meant for those with hearty stamina and energy. The meeting spot was difficult for a US traveller to find - even our hotel in Reims did not know where it was. If you are interested, make sure you phone the guide direct before the tour to learn about the meeting place and the clothes you should wear. Our guide was GREAT, and re-arranged the tour for us when we met, knowing we would not be able to complete the scheduled tour.
