Steve and Susan Cocks

Guided Battlefield Tours is owned by Steve and Susan Cocks. We operated Group coach tours and private tours to World War 1 and World War 2 sites in France, Belgium and Holland from 2008 until 2021. During this period we led over 200 tours. Our clients came from around the world, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA. Our battlefield tours were inspired by a passion for history and a deep appreciation of the sacrifice of past generations.
