It sounds like a great trip and there are lots of interesting places on the itinerary. I'd encourage anyone with an interest and an imagination to go to the battlefields and the cemeteries, which are beautifully kept and a true embodiment of the peace these men fought for.
If you get the chance I suggest you call at Vimy Ridge on the way to Arras. Also when you're at the Wellington Quarry (which is brilliant, especially at the end of the tour) listen out for a letter from Harry Holland. He is referenced in "A District at War" and there are several photos of him.
