My wife and I and another couple from the US toured the D-Day sites with Eric about 2 months ago. Eric is a nice man and clearly knowledgeable about his subject. However I think the tour would have been more enjoyable(particularly for the ladies in the group) had he provided a better , more well organized overview and less time... More

Eric is a wonderful guide. Our family, which included our grandsons spent two days with him, touring both Utah and Omaha. Eric is a very passionate person and one can tell that Normandy guiding is deeply personal to him. He lost an Uncle on June 6, 1944,and his dad was badly wounded. His detailed knowledge of the invasion and afterwards... More

Eric was wonderful. If you have a husband that reads everything in a museum this is the guide you need. He told my husband, "Stop reading all that. This is the reason you hired me . I will tell you all about it. We hope to go back an We would use Eric again

Having already toured with Eric before , last time on the beaches, we were excited to be spending three days with him last October. We were not disappointed. Eric has a great depth of knowledge about both the Allies , the Germans , the geography of Normandy and supply. He applies it brilliantly to all his tours and is very... More

I had the most memorable time in Northern France with Eric. He is a genuine man and a walking encyclopaedia. He was kind enough to make a tour plan that suited my interests.

Eric arrived on time, and was extremely informative. Omaha beach was cold and windy, and perhaps in hindsight, to much time was spent with maps in this area. Whilst he certainly is a history buff, and knows all the details, his bias is with an English slant, and critical of the Americans. He would be ideal for anyone interested in... More

Eric came highly recommended from friends. Fully lived up to our expectations. He gave us a wonderful and thorough tour of the American sector and 8 hours didn't seem enough with his incredible knowledge. Highly recommend this tour.

It is hard to imagine that anyone knows more detail about the invasion than Eric Turnbull, a Scotsman. He is a true student of the history of the invasion. While I am reasonably well read on the invasion and enjoy detail, too much time was spent standing around drilling down into facts and figures. Eric did ask if it was... More
