Our guide, Philip, was excellent! He was extremely knowledgable and passionate about the history of the area. We did this as a family of five, and all of us had the same opinion. If you are in the area DO THIS TOUR!
I can't say enough good things about this tour. Our guide, Matt Legrande, was terrific. Informative, personable, high energy. A great guy. And as an area native whose grandparents lived through the war, he was able to share, not just the military perspective, but what its was like to be in the little villages that were just behind the beaches. I highly recommend Matt. And a private tour is far superior to doing the trip on your own. Without Matt, we would have just visited places and not experienced the stories behind the stories, the culture, and the context both before and after D-Day. Thanks Matt!
Guy was our tour guide for the Normandy tour. and he was OUTSTANDING!. His knowledge of people, places and events made the day one that will always be remembered!
Our guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable of the beaches, the battle plans, the statistics, the history of the area; recommended an excellent local museum for lunch; he told interesting anecdotal stories of the area that made the tour more personal. The only glitch in the trip was the closure of the American cemetery due to government shutdown in October! ....certainly not the tour guide's fault! I would highly recommend this private tour to friends.
Private Normandy tour with Matthew Cardinale was fantastic. We enjoyed every minute of it, he was very knowledgable, and had many personal stories, as his family has lived in Normandy for generations. For four people the cost was the same as a bus tour would have been, and the is no comparison. Wonderful eight hours.
Our tour guide Jonathan was fantastic! He was knowledgable, personable and really made this tour an unforgettable experience. We visited Omaha and Utah beaches, Point du Hoc, the American, Allied and German cemeteries, St. Mere Eglise, and several unexpected highlights. We will remember this once-in-a-lifetime experince for many years to come!
Excellent job by guide, Olivierre. Super organization taking us to the farthest point by Utah Beach then working back to Caen. He did a super job of monitoring our group of 7 to move at just the right speed through the various sites then concluding at the day at the American Cemetary at Omaha Beach. Our only suggestion was to get some type of electronic means to amplify his voice to those in the 3rd row of seats in the van. He has so much excellent knowledge, we all wanted to hear every word. We would highly recommend this tour especially those from countries whose soldiers fought to free France and died on the beaches and area of Normandy. Very emotional.
