With a family member laid to rest at Villers-Bretonneaux, we were anxious to learn something of the northern battlefields of France and visit his grave. Colin was an excellent guide. He gave us an extensive overview of the Aussie digger in that part of France...More
We had an amazing day today with Lisa remembering and reflecting on the Australian involvement in World War 1. Lisa delivered a moving and memorable experience as we trod in the footsteps of those who fought so gallantly to give us the life we have...More
We decided on the one day tour because we intended to do a lot of the Australian battle field sites on our own. We would never have found some of the little off the beaten track locations Lisa took us to or the insightful history...More
We found Colin to be incredibly informative: his knowledge of the times, places and details of the battles in this area was astounding. On the first day, another Australian couple were with us and Colin was able to show them the actual sites where the...More

My wife and I have just concluded a 3 day Battlefield Tour with Cobbers. We were led by tour Manager Colin Gillard, one of the principals of the company.
We were met on time on the first day of the tour and were immediately impressed....More
Knowledgeable guides, a comfortable bus & some of the most moving places in Australian history. We visited just about all the important places from Amiens to Peronne & the main memorial at Villers Bretonneaux
Colin picked up us each day from our accommodation at the Best Western Hotel a few minutes from Amiens Station which was so convenient. We did a three day tour with him although the first day was with Lisa. We had a great day with...More

It's taken me a while to write up this tour (I went on it way back in 2009) but I don't want to let it go unrecognised as it was, without question, an excellent tour.
The company enabled us to join in for 3 days...More

We used Cobbers Battlefied Tours last September but I am not aware of them having a B and B. However they did the hotel booking for us at the Hotel Grand Universe in Amiens. The hotel was included in the cost of the tour and did have breakfast included. There were several restaurants within walking distance as well as a convenience store. The hotel was also very close to the train station (we walked), and Colin the tour director picked us up at the hotel each morning. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend to anyone interested in battlefield tours

Cobbers Battlefield Tours made all the hotel bookings for us and it was as previously advised the L'Univers' situated within walking distance to the train station and within a mall with plenty of shopping and restaurants and bars. Very old but charming, clean and comfortable - highly recommended.
