It was a great experience. Our guide was very enthusiastic asking lots of questions and keeping the kids engaged throughout. She speaks in French but made the extra effort to say a few things in English to our son who doesn’t understand French. We also learned a few things and got to see all the attractions.

As the granddaughter and the daughter of men who died in World War 1 and World War 11, Quentin, my guide, provided me with the most personal, and informative tour ever.
