Top Tips from Our Travel Experts

"When touring the Opal Coast you should factor in time to stroll the cobbled streets of Arras.  Learning about the history of the town and its influence during the war is a must for any group.  For lunch, I would recommend having an hour during the day where you can visit a boulangerie to try the local delicacies.  From a Jambon-Beurre to a plain croissant there is something for everyone, plus it will be a great opportunity to practise your French!  A trip to the Opal Coast is a perfect trip for a first time group leader or for anyone looking to take a younger year group abroad!”
