Incredible Experience

Claude was an outstanding tour guide. The staff at the Vimy Ridge Center are all Canadian University students from across the country. They were proud to be working at such a historic place. The Newfoundland Memorial Park was also incredible to visit.

Vimy with Claude

Claude was very responsive to our communications and our personal interests. He was on time to pick us up and pleasant and personable. We were looking for a complete and unvarnished depiction of what happened at Vimy ridge and Claude showed that he was very knowledgeable, not just about the dates and facts, but also about the whys and context. He made what happened at Vimy come alive and this is what we were looking for. He answered all of our many questions with knowledgable insight.
