Custom WW1 Ypres tours

Latest book suggested Sylvie Brems as a guide. She works from Bruge according to the book "Belgium." She has not responded to our email. 2 immediate family members died and my Grandfather was wounded within a few kms of Ypres. Next September we would like to "walk" the sites.
Suggestions of guides or do we rent a car and do it ourselves? Thoughts?

The Yper Museum and In Flanders Field Museum in the centre of Ypres take about 4 hours in total if you read all the information, so you don’t need a guide for that element. The Menin Gate etc are easy to cover yourselves too.

We went to the Tyne Cott memorial at the end of September - again, it’s easy to self navigate and there are circular walks from the cemetery around the former battlefields. We had our own car with us, so getting around was easy.

We took the Quasimodo Flanders Fields tour a few years ago from Brugges. We got picked up at our B&B before 9am and dropped off about 6pm. It was very much worth the cost.

How large is the Quasimodo tour group to Flanders Field? The website mentions a private tour being available. Has anyone done that?

Thanks everyone for comments. Looks like self tour with rental car. Interesting that most comments are from precovid travel????
