Trevor was fantastic! A wealth of information and very receptive to our needs. We would highly recommend him to anyone taking a tour of Normandy. One special thing that Trevor did was to draw in the sand of Omaha Beach and illustrate our fight to take the beach. It was very helpful to have a visualization and we appreciate Trevor for that. At the end of our journey Trevor gave us a small booklet it was the first person account of the area during the time of Omaha Beach.
