After initially being introduced to Normandy by bringing tour groups from the UK to visit the D-Day Beaches or Monet's Garden in Giverny, I soon realized I'd like to live in this region of verdant countryside and varied coasts, and in 2008 I settled down in this beautiful part of France.
With a particular interest in the history of World War 2 I've led many tours of the D-Day Beaches and associated sights, but I have also been inspired to introduce others to the wonderful sights, smells and tastes of Normandy. From the D-Day beaches to Monet's garden; from the old picturesque fishing ports of the coast to the largest Basilica in N. Europe; from the birthplace of William the Conqueror, to the place where Joan of Arc was executed; I can introduce you to the real Normandy and help you make the most of your holiday. Make a booking today to arrange the private tour that will enable you to experience the culture and flavours of Normandy and give you great memories of your holiday in France.
A Recent Review of this guide
Our most anticipated and most enjoyed tour. Andy was there to greet us and was very knowledgeable on every aspect of the tour. I would highly recommend this tour and Andy to anyone interested in the U.S. involvement in WWII. Seeing the beaches of Utah and Omaha were moving. The American Cemetery is not to be missed.

Not licensed to give tours inside French Government owned sites and museums (e.g. The Louvre). In practice there are very few of these sites in Normandy, and none on the D-Day Beaches.
