Private tour guide Andy

Andy C.

Louviers, Haute Normandie, France

I'm a Private Tour Guide living in Normandy who has traveled extensively, living and working across Europe and Asia.

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

Andy was, in a word, awesome. Should the opportunity arise to tour with him again I would jump at the chance. My husband and I spent 5 days with Andy running all over Normandy - from the obvious D-day sites, to the more obscure locations filled with individual events and stories narrated by Andy's extensive knowledge. The entire experience was positive, from the flexibility to change plans conducive to "weather of the moment", to spending more/less) time at a particular location as interest dictated.
