We had booked a tour with another guide who at the last minute was unable to take us. Patrice -- whom we had as a guide on our first day in Paris -- worked with TBL to pick up this tour to Normandy. His flexibility allowed us to spend a moving day visiting the Normandy beaches and US cemetery. The trip is long (three hours drive each way) but Patrice's driver had a very comfortable van we could stretch out in. Patrice allowed us time to soak in each site and shared insightful details along the way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review Matthew, I was delighted to show you may birth place (Normandy) and Im happy to know that you enjoyed this day. I hope to see you in the future. Sincerely PatriceB Merci for your offer in Colorado

Patrice provided an exceptional tour of Normandy for me and my 21 year old son. His knowledge of the area and the best places to visit was outstanding. He offered very useful guidance to me prior to my arrival in France and was flexible in terms of what and how we prioritized the sites. In addition to his knowledge, Patrice had a great sense of humor and connected very well with both my son and I. I'd highly recommend a tour with Patrice to anyone who would like to visit Normandy or Paris.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Beth for your wonderful review of our time spent touring Normandy. It was such a pleasure to meet your son. I look forward to your return and sharing much more of my beautiful country. All my best Patrice

Patrice was the perfect French tour guide. He is humorous, knowledgeable, witty, and incredibly fun. We really wished we had booked more tours with him. His knowledge and guidance lead us through Paris without feeling like a tour, more like a visit with a friend. Our young teenage boys enjoyed his company as much as we did. We HIGHLY recommend this guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jon for your wonderful review of our time spent touring Normandy. It was such a pleasure to meet your son. I look forward to your return and sharing much more of my beautiful country. All my best Patrice

This truly felt like a VIP tour. The guide and driver were extremely accommodating and eager to please. The information about Dday was delivered in a way that kept everyone in our group engaged. I highly recommend Patrice. He was excellent and helped to make this a very special and memorable tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice review. I truly enjoyed this day with you and your delightful children. PatriceB

Our day with Patrice was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about Normandy and the events of DDay but didn't come across like an encyclopedia. Instead we felt as if we were learning about Normandy from a local's perspective. He took us to an excellent local restaurant for lunch, and a local apple farm/distillery where they make Calvados (kind of an apple congnac unique to the Normandy region of France. I highly recommend Patrice for a day of learning about DDay, but also being immersed in local culture
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you mike for your very nice review. It was my pleasure to show your my birth land... Normandy.
Richard LynnUnited States
Just returned home after a quick trip to Paris which included a trip to Normandy, with Patrice as our guide. He was great- very knowledgeable about the area and subject plus very attentive to our eating and bathroom needs. If you want a truly comprehensive understanding of this area and its history, he is the guide for you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard Thank you very much for your nice review. It was my pleasure to be your guide this day. Sincerely PatriceB

Patrice was very informative and gave us lots of great stories since he grew up in Normandy! He knows lots of local spots that we would not have found on our own! He let us take out time at all the beaches etc! He doesn't rush you at all!! It really feels like a friend taking you around! He is very patient and funny with our teenagers! He offered to take pictures so we finally have the whole family in several great photos!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have you during this day in Normzndy.

Excellent.Prompt.Knowledgeable.Thorough. Because Patrice was from the Normandy area, we got personal insight into the area's culture, the German occupation, the Allied forces beach landing, and then finishing with the Normandy American Cemetery. We highly recommend Patrice's Normandy Tour. Appreciated extras, charming french restaurant for lunch, local calvados operation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice review.I also enjoyed to be your guide and show you my land...Normandy.

Patrice was a great guide. Picked me up & dropped me off at where I'm staying,; gave me hints & tips prior to my coming to Paris. The Normandy trip was great. I didn't feel rushed and was able to see Mont St Michel, Giverny, The D-day beaches, and the American Cemetery in 2 days. Very knowledgeable about the area and provided me with all the history I'd want.. Great to have an English speaking guide to help & go at your pace. If you're looking for a knowledgeable & Parisian or Normandy - he's your guy!
