Personal tour of Flanders Fields sites?

My husband and I would like to have a private tour operator give just the two of us a tour of the Flanders Fields sites near Ypres in a car/van rather than going with a group on a bus. Can anyone recommend someone? I see someone named Jacques gave a tour for a RS Tour but how would I get ahold of him?

Thank you. We have scheduled a tour with Jacque and his colleague, thanks to your helpful link.

Susan,

I've been on a RS tour in that area and have taken a tour with Jacques, and he is indeed an outstanding guide!!! It's difficult to know what superlatives to use to describe his tours! I believe the link provided in the previous reply is the correct one for contacting him.

There's LOTS of history in that area and Jacques will provide a good overview, including the story of John McCrae. If possible, try to visit the Tynecot Cemetery (the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world).

Ken, thank you for the enthusiastic reply! Our tour is next week--looking forward to it.
