Sly our guide and was very knowledgeable and made the day.

Thanks for making our trip so memorable Sly
Very Good. Our guide was full of insights and kept it interesting
Excellent! Our tour guide for the British sector was Sylvain "Sly" Kast. He was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant, and patient-fielding many questions from the tourists. I have advised friends anticipating a trip to Normandy to contact me in advance so that I can guide them to Sly! Please share this with Sly Thank you, Dick Robins
Olivier was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who is generous enough to share his extensive knowledge with his clients. If you have longer, consider doing a full day tour. Or, if you have a specific request, do ask for a personalised private tour.
We had a very interesting afternoon in which we were taken to a range of places. Well beyond our expectations and despite the threat of bad weather we managed to keep mainly dry. Our guide was excellent and made us feel comfortable enough to ask a whole range of questions which he answered in detail.
The tour was very thought provoking! Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful an excellent survey of the beaches, highly recommended.
Excellent trip, the driver knew everything that he could about this and was able to answer all of our questions.
Our guide, a charming young French woman with excellent English, arrived promptly at the hotel. The tour packed in a lot in a short time with visits to Pegasus Bridge, Ranville Cemetary, Hillman and Sword Beach. At each stop her detailed knowledge made for a most informative and enjoyable experience.
Very knowledgeable guide. We were a little disappointed that we did not go to the Sword museum as this was the main reason for booking. However we enjoyed many aspects of the tour and we were pleased that after asking we actually went to the Sword beach and paid our respects to family.

The tour was excellent, but the British-French tour guide was condascending in attitude toward us when we had a question and was definitely very biased against the American perspective of Normandy D-Day. We did not appreciate that he constantly was telling us that the Americans should have listened to the Brits on strategy, etc. Other than that, we loved the British Sector Tour and respected all that the British did and the lives sacrificed on D-Day. It was sobering. One very nice part of this tour was being picked up and taken back to our bed and breakfast location.
Well worth the effort to do this tour but probably should have completed an all day one to allow more time at Pegasus bridge for example.The quide (Matthew) was brilliant and obviously had researched the history of the area extremely well - he was very informative on not only the tour aspects but also all other things in the region.
