Bespoke Tours

Our Bespoke Battlefield tour packages are suitable for groups from 2 to 6 people. They offer clients the chance to experience the battlefields on a much more personal level. The tour packages are personalised to the requirements of each travelling party. Itineraries can be designed to provide clients with a general overview of their chosen battlefield, or can be designed to follow in more detail a specific area of interest.

These tour packages are a great option for clients who are interested in following the experiences of a relative. Included in all our bespoke packages is a ‘military family history research’ biography of a chosen relative. This information can then be used, where possible, to form part of the clients itinerary, and adds another dynamic to their experience.

"From the onset, it was a very humbling and unique experience. It involved a diverse group of people young and old– from visually impaired students, sighted children, blind veterans, a poet and a missionary, all of whom were from different walks of life, who all shared this fascinating experience together."

Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service Fire Cadets

"The tour was an incredibly well organised trip, which was headed by our tour guide Brian [Esprit Tour Services], who was incredibly knowledgeable and shared many fascinating stories. He was instrumental in making the tour such an emotional journey for many of us.

The fire cadets and myself were very overwhelmed by the experience we had and it will be something that we will cherish forever."

"He (the guide) did Esprit proud and we would have no hesitation in recommending your tours to anyone interested."

Mr and Mrs Davies

"Ken (WW1 battlefield guide) was the most interesting person we have met in a long time. He was very knowledgeable about everything to do with WW1 and really brought it all to life for us, his explanations of each site we visited was amazing and it was our great pleasure to visit even though we have no known relatives who took part, it was very surreal to learn the facts and figures of the enormous amount of lost lives."

Mr and Mrs Davies

"Thanks so much for the whole WW1 experience last week. Your company was professional from start to finish and it was helpful and engaging that you asked what we were studying to tailor the workshop to exactly what the pupils needed before reading the books. Your company was punctual, efficient and the relationship you built with the kids was lovely to see. It was an exciting hands-on experience that the pupils learnt a lot from. They particularly loved the artefacts and loved being able to touch ‘something real’."

Miss Fallows
Head of Department

"I am just emailing to say thank you very much for today's sessions. The pupils really enjoyed the presentation and were talking about it for the rest of the day."

Miss Seddon
Head of History

"Esprit provided a wonderful World War 1 presentation for St. Michael's on Wyre Primary School. The room was transformed into a WW1 trench, where the children could experience what life was like for the soldiers. There was a wide variety of authentic artefacts for the children to explore, and the knowledge and professional of staff was second to none.

All of the children learned more about life during the conflict and they were keen to ask questions, which were answered expertly. This kind of presentation brings history to life, being engaging and inspiring"

Mrs Brough


We have had an amazing day at school. The children really enjoyed the presentations and have learned so much."

Mrs Brough

"Esprit tours provided an outstanding service for our recent trip to Ypres . The trip planning and consultation pre-tour was meticulous and delivered with military precision …this was much appreciated given our tour was for blind and partially sighted young people and service veterans"

Dr Patterson

"The tour guide, Brian provided wonderful reflections on the Great War, peppered with intriguing and captivating short stories of individual soldiers serving 1914-1918. He demonstrated a deep knowledge, which was thoughtfully matched to the sights of interest chosen to stop at in relation to the needs of our visually impaired group. The flow of information during the journey brought the trip to life for us. It was encouraging to have post –trip visits by Esprit including for our Armistice assembly. Professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful and caring; thank you Esprit"
