Welcome to Salient Tours
We are dedicated to helping people understand better the monumental events of the First World War, whether through our guided tours, our specialist bookshops at Ypres and on the Somme, or simply through offering advice and information.
Today the battlefields of the Great War hide their terrible
secrets well, over ninety years of farming and quiet industry by
the local people means that on the surface there can often be
very little to show for the carnage and destruction of the Great
What was a desolate wasteland of shell holes and trenches is now innocent farmland and without a guide it is quite literally impossible to even guess at the importance of such places. Our dedicated guides will peel back the pages of history to show you those now tranquil sites where eight decades ago a generation fell and the world changed forever.
