Are you after some off the beaten track sites, personal stories or just the highlights of the Ypres Salient battlefields? Researching a family member or you want a themed tour?
My name is Simon Louagie and through Simon’s Stories, you can discover my work as a battlefield guide. In sharing the personal stories through our last eye-witness, the landscape, I endeavour that people remember what took place in Flanders Fields a century ago. As the Educational Manager of the Peace Village Hostel, I have a lot of experience in pitching my stories for all age groups. Regular visitors to the Salient will always see new sites and hear new stories from me. I am a licensed tour guide (member of the Ypres Guild of Guides & certified by Visit Flanders) and am involved in many Great War projects. Having grown up in the local area, I try to add my local knowledge and perspective to the tours. I hope to provide you with a unique experience and ensure together we keep remembering them.
I guide both individual and group tours and am happy to tailor your tour . I can join you in your car or on coach, alternatively we can do a walking or cycling tour of the area. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
