Marianne could not have been better or more accommodating. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but also so personable. Our tour of Normandy Beaches and American Cemetery was very moving and when we asked for a lunch restaurant that served fresh seafood she took us to a small fishing village on the water and a wonderful restaurant where we were the only Americans and the food was fabulous. Cannot recommend her more. She deserves a 6+.
