Battle Guide Virtual Tours has given our audience a new way to reach the battlefields of the Great War. While the Museum and Memorial offers annual onsite battlefield tours, cost, distance and world events can make it difficult for some to physically walk the hallowed grounds of WWI. Virtual tours have helped our community to immerse themselves in the rich history and geography of places like the Argonne Forest and Chateau-Thierry.
The Western Front Association - during the period of lockdown caused by the COVID 19 pandemic - was keen to turbo-charge the digital offering to its members who, obviously, were unable to visit the battlefield in person. The virtual tours that Battle Guide built for us perfectly fitted the bill for our members, who thoroughly enjoyed the dozen tours of WW1 battlefields that were created. These were a mix of the familiar and the less familiar, but came with the same high quality and wonderful 'story telling' by the guides.
We worked with Battle Guide Virtual Tours to provide a unique experience to our fans and supporters.
Flying over a battlefield and getting expert commentary was a great way to engage with history, and BGVTs service was invaluable for us.
