I can't imagine going to all the Normandy World War II sites without a guide. We had a private tour with Rene. He is extremely knowledgeable and participates in reenactment paratrooper jumps himself. He carries very large photographs that help show what the area looked like in 1944. When my father asked how much the tour cost and I told... More

Four of us spent the day with Pierre, who was excellent company and a genuine font of information. Pierre is a young French person who attended secondary school and university in England. His language skills are exceptional--at home in both French and English. His knowledge about WWII history is equally deep. In addition, we had lessons on the 100 Years... More

We took the D-Day Battle Tour with Rene, and it was so much more than a tour. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The only bad thing was the tour had to end as it was so informative. Rene spoke to us and asked what we had seen and not saw, and adjusted for our group. We saw the main... More

We took the full day tour, 8 hours, with Rene. It was excellent! It was a very educational day, especially since i thought i knew so much about D day. Rene was not just a guide dictating from a memorized script. He spoke about being interested in the war as a small boy and has been obsessed with this historical... More

Our tour in Normandy with our guide, Monica, was exceptional! She was so knowledgeable of the history and thoughtful of our requests for the day. We saw all of the well-known sights of D-Day as well as smaller places where more personal stories happened. It was these lesser known stories of individual heroes that made this a very special experience.... More

My family, a group of 6, were taken on a wonderful tour by Monica and it was more than one could have hoped after reading about. She met us at St. Mere Eglise and showed us many sites, Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Pont du Hoc and the Cemetary. As well as many other smaller memorials and sites dedicated to the... More

For starters, our tour was lead by Rene who has to be one of the foremost experts in the world of DDay/WWII history. He has immersed his life from a young age in learning about this area and the sobering events which took place here. Rene has even gone to a jump school in Oklahoma to jump out of a... More

We dealt with Monica in the months leading up to our visit and I hoped she would be our guide. I just had total confidence this would be all we hoped for. We ended up with Rene as our guide and he exceeded the hopes and expectations we had for the tour. Can't recommend this company enough!!
