A Recent Review of this guide
Ezzedrine stepped in at the last minute and gave us a day long private tour based around my fathers landing on Omaha beach. And was very flexible to meet our needs all day. So appreciative of his efforts and the background research he had conducted overnight. Wished he had had the time to rent the minivan he usually takes for comfort, but hard to make that happen at such short notice. Very knowledgeable about entire area, D Day and World War II. Thank you Ezzedrine for a very moving and memorable day.

I used to be a consultant with the Unesco in restoration and preservation of the sites of the world heritage. My involvement in cultural tourism and my experience as a tour leader for many years motivates my interest to be a tourist guide.
