Because the Rick Steves' Company doesn't have enough of my money after guiding me through Paris, I've decided to make another contribution to his wealth by taking the Heart of Belgium and Holland 11 Day tour in 2017 (if it's still offered at that time). I see from the itinerary that Day 3 offers the following:
Day 3: Flanders Fields and Beautiful Bruges
Today we'll meet our driver and board our bus for the short drive to the WWI battlefields around Ypres. Half a million soldiers were killed here, making it one of the deadliest — and today the most hallowed — stretches of land along the Western Front. With the aid of a local expert, we'll tour the monuments, visit a thought-provoking museum, and see "the fields where poppies grow."
Does anyone know if the Menin Gate is one of the landmarks visited on this leg of the tour?
