Great tour, great pace. Obliged with small changes to itinerary with regards time at stops. Friendly guide, very knowledgeable and gave explanations and information above and beyond the scope of the tour. Couldn't recommend Alain enough. Regards Clinton

Alain is very knowledgeable and has a wealth of information about the history of Normandy. This tour could be improved by installing a speaker in the vehicle as it was very hard to hear Alain if you are in the far back of the vehicle.

Our family had a fantastic day touring Normandy with Alain! He was excellent at sharing his knowledge of France history, Paris history, WWI, WWII, and the finer points about what can be seen at Normandy. As an experienced tour guide, he was very adept at communicating his in-depth knowledge of what transpired on D-Day. Although this was just a day trip, he ensured we saw and understood the highlights in Normandy. He has an excellent ability to challenge one's thinking! Depth & breadth of knowledge ++++++!

Alain is a first rate guide. Knows his stuff and so much more. We learned about the MONA LISA on the way to Normandy! Enjoyed our trip, learned a lot. Just the right amount of touring to the best places for the time we had. Lovely, comfortable, air conditioned van. Safe driver, too. Nice lunch place. I recommend him without reservations!

Our tour started promptly at the time designated, with our driver, Alain, was waiting with water and the most extensive knowledge of WWII that I had ever heard. He also was quite knowledgeable about many other subjects as well. His personal stories and addition to the trip just made it that much more pleasurably. We highly recommend Alain!

Alain gave us a thoroughly delightful trip. His knowledge of WW II and the D-Day invasion was very detailed, presented in an engaging manner. His comprehensive understanding of European history which gives more depth of old enmities, gave us an insight we would not have had. Absolutely outstanding! We enjoyed our day with him and look forward to booking again! A true 5 star experience!

Our family enjoyed this trip very much. Alain was extremely adept at adjusting to our interst level. We put this excursion high on our list of things to do while in Paris. It was worth it but the 3 hour + drive each way distracts from the experience. If you have or will have another opportunity to visit that part of France separately from Paris I would not Cram it in to a Paris trip. If on the other hand it might be your only opportunity, I would not miss it and Alain is the one to take you.

Alain was fabulous. Out of all the guides we have had, he was superior to all of them. He was right on time to pick us up. He was very knowledgeable and a genuine pleasure to be with. It was like traveling with a friend. He was also a great driver. If I require a driver again while in Europe, I would definitely call Alain without hesitation. I highly recommend him for any tour. He knew everything about everything. We had a great day. He was also very reasonable in price. He is my go to guy...

Alain was the best guide we have had. He was very knowledgeable and made our trip to Normandy a highlight of our vacation. He gave very deep background to the sites and was able to answer all of our questions. We would give him six stars but that was not an option.

Our D-Day Normandy Landing tour with Alain was absolutely fantastic! His knowledge of the WWII history is amazing. He shared so much information that we did not know. It was both a fun and very touching experience.

Alain is fun and extremely knowledeable. He knew so much of the D-Day history I told him that he should be a history professor. He told me that he is, in fact, a history professor at the university level. I highly recommend Alain for any tour he would give.
