Confirmed the tour of Arras/Vimy ridge will take place weekend Friday16-Monday 19 April 2010. More walking than at Verdun, more like the tour of The Somme 2008.
Again the tour will be lead by Flyingmonkey and I will post details of accommodation once I have the contract.

I think that C_M, mini-crocq and myself will be giving that one a miss due to the extreme likelihood that I will be the size of a small dwelling by that point!

If you are going to Vimy Ridge and want to get down the tunnels you'll need to book for parties of 4+. Judging by posts on the Somme Tour you will exceed this, assuming enough of the tourists survived. The number for the Visitor's Centre is +33 (0)3 22767086. They don't do tours on a Monday. Hope this helps.

I'm planning a jaunt to the area in 2011 for 20-40 in own vehicles and will be using Le Manoir at Gavrelle.

Saw it when visiting nearby positions, while being used for big wedding reception - mostly in gardens.

Used it for a 2 nighter for 10 last November - all were happy.

The web pages were reliable, i.e. no exaggerations noted.
