Dan is a remarkably knowledgeable and attractive presenter of military history and its specific battlefield sites. He speaks with great enthusiasm and genuine feeling for his subject and the people fighting on all sides. He is very approachable and excellent company and I cannot name a better guide to the great battlefields of history.

I contacted Dan Hill in order to arrange a bespoke WW1 battlefields tour of France and Flanders for a local history group of varying ages. Dan did a superb job in organising the tour, taking care of absolutely everything from the itinerary, through to coach travel, hotel bookings and arranging a suitable battlefield's tour guide. He could not have done a better job. The trip was absolutely superb in every aspect and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan.

Dan Hill was a key part of the team who put together the National Commemoration of the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme in 2016.
He provided historical tours and information, advised and led public engagement activity. He helped construct an online resource which enabled people search for relatives involved in the Battle, and provided much of the research required for our Cathedral service and public concert at Heaton Park.
Dan is a total professional who combines warmth with wit, humility and wisdom. He understand the public, including young people, and how to make historical materials relevant and exciting. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any project or programme he sought to be a part of.

When touring with Dan you know you are going to feel completely involved and at ease. Aside from keeping your attention from start to finish, he will throw in a few laughs to keep you on your toes. Being the same age as Dan I have been amazed at his knowledge and dedication to his historian and tour guiding role.
