Stand To Tours organise tailor made trips to the battlefields of the Western Front. We can tell you how an individual soldier fought & all too often was killed. We can bring you to his grave or memorial. Our trips are geared for groups of 5 to 7 people & can be spread over 2 to 4 days. Typically we will meet you and return you to Brussels airport. All our tours are based in Ieper (Ypres) in the heart of the Flanders battlefields, just a short drive from the Somme & Arras sectors. We can organise accomodation for you or recommend hotels & B&Bs in Ieper.

We can research an individuals service history in WWI to help tell their story. However the amount of information available varies and is dependant on many factors. Some soldiers unfortunately only have the minimum of data on record.
We charge an initial fee of €25 to undertake the search & will then give you a quote on the final figure depending on the amount of data we find before we proceed.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or for more information.
