Excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable of the history and very flexible.

The tour and guide were both fantastic. The guide was at our hotel promptly at 9am, and the ride to Waterloo was comfortable and relatively quick. The tour hits all of the major portions of the battlefield, and the guide was very accommodating with requests for extra time in some areas. The guide also went out of his way to rearrange the order of the tour in order to ensure we had the best experience possible given the day's inclement weather. The battlefield itself is fairly well-preserved, and the new visitor's center facility is outstanding. If you would like to see Waterloo battlefield without renting a car, this is definitely the way to do it.

The guide was excellent and she explained everything just as you would want her to.
The lion hill monument was worth the long walk up the steps to a fantastic view. Overall the tour was well worth it.
