All these tourists had unforgettable travel experience because of our private guide from Brussels. Let them make your dream vacation a reality.

For a fascinating historic encounter, let a private guide show you the Ulster Tower Memorial Located in Thiepval, in Northern France.

It is a memorial dedicated to the men of the 36th, Ulster Division. It's called The Ulster Tower Memorial. The memorial opened in November of 1921. It commemorates the nearly 5,000 casualties that occurred on July 1st, 1916 on the first day of The Battle of the Somme. Soldiers of the 36th Division left the British Front Line, crossed No Man's Land and after successfully advancing their positon for nearly one mile, the decision was made to withdraw back to the German Front Line. Lack of ammunition, food, water and equipment for the men in the forward positions led to the decision.

A private guide will show you two memorials at the entrance of The Ulster Tower Memorial; one commemorating nine men of the 36th Division who won the Victoria Cross and another commemorating members of the Orange Order. The inscription reads; This Memorial is Dedicated to the Men and Women of the Orange Institution Worldwide, who at the call of King and country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of the sight of man by the path of duty and self sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in Freedom. Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.

Don't miss out on important details.

Let a private guide show you the Ulster Tower Memorial and point out things that you may have missed on your own.
