21 April - 1 May 2018
11 Day / 10 Night tour to Paris - Amiens and Ypres
Every year, Australians make the journey to the Somme to attend the ANZAC DAY Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux.
As for France at Leisure's 2015 successful Centenary Tour, we are currently designing a similar package for a small group of Australians and covering the significant battlefield sites of the Somme and Flanders.
In WW1, Australian troops entered the trenches of France and Belgium. Three years later over 46,000 were dead.
In April 1918, the Germans threatened the vital rail hub in Amiens, in northern France, and capture the village of Villers-Bretonneux.
On the 24/25th April 1918 Australian and British troops halted the advance, and forced a German withdrawal. Amiens was saved!.
-"This boutique escorted tour is all about retracing this crucial part of European history and the ANZAC contribution and sacrifices".
