Valerie was a wonderful guide. She kept us going and was more than helpful in getting to all the places we wanted to see. Her knowledge of the area was great and included a great variety of local information. The tour was the best we could have hoped for.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Dear Jill, Thank you so much for your very kind review and message. Your kindness and curiosity also made my day ! I am so glad you enjoyed this day in Normandy, and I hope you’ll keep the best memories of our country. Cheers Val

She is a very knowledgeable person, well prepared. Also very flexible, she picked us up in Honfleour at 6 AM and drove to the American Cemetery 150 km away to attend the 75th D-Day Anniversary. All and all she did her best to navigate in the madhouse , and get us accomplish our goals. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, Thanks a lot for your great review. It was such a special day, I am glad we lived it together ! Take good care of yourself, Val

Valerie was everything an excellent tour guide should be: knowledgeable, flexible, and personable. She took us to some outstanding restaurants, and went out of her way to find us some authentic French donuts. We recommend her highly.
Carla StearnsUnited States
Did lovely walking tour of two fascinating cities, Rouen and Caen. I wanted to see them both, and it is a bit of a drive between them. But Valerie is a great guide. Patient, knowledgeable and speaks decent English. Good with older children.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many Thanks, Carla, for your kind review. Say hello to the children and congratulations for the great cultural background you're giving them. You're an amazing mother !

Jacqueline TetreaultUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Valerie. She was knowledgeable and fun but also gave us space and time to "take in" in experience. She brought us to a wonderful local fish restaurant for lunch which was so amazing. The tour went longer than it was suppose to but she didn't seem to mind. It was the highlight of our trip to normandie. Would highly recommend Valerie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jackie, Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a real pleasure to welcome your family and show you around. Take good care and say hello to every body ! Val
Nice guide with fundamental knowledge. A day we will remember. Thank you, Valerie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Franz, Thank you very much for your kind review. Say hello to your lovely family !
Paul KeoughHingham, MASSACHUSETTS, United States
Val's tour of many sites of Normandy was exceptional. Beyond the tour, Val went above and beyond normal tour guide duties when we experienced unanticipated problems, which she so graciously helped us with. She will always be remembered by us a an exceptional tour guide but also as the person in France who came to our aid.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Paul ! Thanks for this kind review. I am glad you enjoyed your tour in Normandy after all. Say hello to the whole family !
Laura KuchlerUnited States
Valery was a wonderful guide of the DDay beaches and memorials. We were also able to see the American cemetery and St. Mere Eglise She did a fantastic job of showing us around. We saw and learned so much more than we could've possibly done on our own. I would highly recommend choosing Valerie as your guide !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Laura for this fantastic review ! I do hope that you'll keep an unforgettable memory of your stay here in Normandy. Take good care of yourself and your lovely family ! Cheers Val
Emily MillerUnited States
Valerie is a charming young woman who knows her stuff. She even had a binder with her to augment the tour and answers any questions you may have. Tour is quite extensive and emotionally quite hard, but the historical significance of the D-Day Invasion that changed world history is SO important. Before the tour I had no concept of the magnitude of this amazing Allied invasion. After the tour my head was spinning after seeing the enormity of it and the sacrifices of all young men and women who took part.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: MAny thanks, Emily, for this kind and pleasant rating !

You can not go wrong spending the day in Normandy with Valérie. She is a lovely lady who will show you Normandy as only a local can. The time flies by so be sure you have your A game so you don't miss a thing. There is no way a large tour can compete with this experience. Everything is done expertly and with taste.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much John and Chris ! You really were so delightful guests too. All the best. Valerie

Valerie was an amazing guide. She is very knowledgeable about the entire Normandy area.Her guide in Mont St Michael was superb.We have traveled the world with many guides. She is one of the best!
Maria QuezadaUnited States
Valerie was great and highly recommend her. She was knowledgeable about not only the sites that we went to visit but also about WWII in general - she was able to answer all of the side questions we had for her. Overall I really enjoyed the tour and would recommend Valerie again to others.
Maria QuezadaUnited States
Valerie was great and highly recommend her. She was professional in all of her email correspondence, offering suggestions for our tour, confirming the schedule of events, and ensured that our plan would work with the closing times of each venue. She was flexible with the needs of our group. She arrived promptly each day, and kept us on time during the tours to ensure we could see everything (and was even able to detour from our original plan when time allowed to visit Utah beach).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this very kind review ! Best regards, Valérie
Deborah RosiakUnited States
Valerie was great and so was Stephen the driver. I just think that talking to other passengers, that the tour was a bit pricey and rushed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah for this feedback, I will think of your observation and try to adjust my offer. With my best memories, Valérie
