Richard H.

Banville, France

I've been a professional guide since 1991. I'm also a PADI Master Instructor and I traveled all around the world teaching diving and guiding, so I'm very familiar with travelers and their needs.

I have a university degree in Norman history specialized in Medival History, especially the time of William the Conqueror and the nearly 300 years of Norman History as an independant country.
I'm also well educated in modern history, especially of World Word II.
I've also a university degree in Art History and know very well the periode of the sea side resorts (1840-1914) with the Impressionist painting periode in Normandy.
Next to art and history I know very well the culinary specialties of Normandy, with it's soft cheeses and the famous Calvados (Apple Brandy).
As I live between Caen and Bayeux (two very historical Norman), I can guide you there and show you all the little secret part of those two beautiful cities.
As I'm also very frequently in Rouen, I can also show you all the beautiful parts along the Seine rive and some of the most intersting historical and cultural places.

A Recent Review of this guide

What a fantastic day visiting and walking the steps of our brave soldiers who fought for our freedom through the DDay invasion, June 6, 1944. Richard met us at the cruise pier and within minutes had us engaged in the history of Le Havre, en Fleur and then the Normandy coast line beaches. Our request was to provide a Canadian perspective and he came through with flying colours. A lovely traditional Normandy lunch was enjoyed. We felt so welcome and proud to be Canadians. We will never forget-Thank you!
