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 Conférencier in France. My Local knowledge allows me to visit sites that are less well known by non locals.

A Recent Review of this guide

Graham is what makes this tour an excellent one, and I suspect that any tour that he gives would be excellent, as well. We have had many tours and I can safely say that out time spent with Graham the best, so far. Gracious, courteous, knowledgeable and accommodating are all adjectives that describe him. Our tour lasted well past the normal time as Graham wanted us to see places of interest that were not on the normal tour that further explained some of the many questions that we had. Excellent day!
