Graham O.

St Mars D'Egrenne, Orne, France

I was born and grew up in Kent, United Kingdom. I am widely traveled and I have been living in Normandy for twelve years, studying the history of this ancient historical region, both Medieval/Middle Age and WWII.

With my Anglo/Norman roots, I am passionate about both these periods and take great personal delight in passing on much that I have learned to my guests and enjoy discussions and exchanging personal ideas.

I have been told that I have a friendly nature and an enthusiastic manner, I am easy to understand as I am a Native English Speaker.
I worked in all of these sectors throughout the summer season of 2017 on an almost daily basis.
I have Lived in Le Mont St Michel for short periods and was privileged to attend Christmas mass in the Abbey with the Monks and Sisters and dined and conversed with them.
During all this time I kept up my studies both off and on-site, picking up knowledge from personal stories of guests, including a D day veterans.
I am a member of the Guild Of battlefield Guides and a registered Guide in France. My Local knowledge allows me to visit sites that are less well known by non locals.

A Recent Review of this guide

As a career military officer, I have been on numerous staff rides to various American battlefields, so I was very impressed with how well Graham allotted the available time at each stop we made. While considering our recommendations for where to visit in the Normandy area of operations, he expertly put together an itinerary that flowed perfectly, starting with a succinct and insightful overview of the US Airborne drops in the Ste Mere Eglise area and the La Fiere bridge. We were delighted with the tour.
