This was a positive experience in every way - booking online, connecting with guide, our guide Gustavo and the tour! He was an excellent driver, pleasant to visit with and very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. He made our Normandy experience a memorable and wonderful one! We highly recommend this tour and Gustavo!

Our tour of Normandy was made great by Gustavo. He was not only a great tour guide, but also a great conversationalist. We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal, our appreciation for the men and women that sacrificed so much for the cause of freedom growing enormously. Throughout the day Gustavo placed what we were experiencing in context, explaining war plans and individual sacrifices and helping us understand what we were seeing. Thank you, Gustavo for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Gustavo was a wonderful guide. Very informative and fun. We were 4 in our 60's and he was very patient and accommodating. We would highly recommend him to anyone.
Debra ArmstrongUnited States
It was our pleasure to have Gustavo Zarco as our Normandy guide. His comprehensive knowledge of the history of this area along with personal insights and comments, made this tour especially enjoyable. It was profoundly moving to stand on such hallowed ground and see the cliffs, the bunkers, the sea as we remembered those who fought here. The American cemetary was eerily beautiful. A very special day for us indeed. Thank you Gustavo for guiding us through with such expertise.

Gustavo is excellent. Knowledgeable and accommodating. Since we were staying at Eurodisney this was a very long day but very enjoyable.
William StantonUnited States
Gustavo is an excellent guide. He picked the six of us up at our hotel around 7 AM in his car; he drove and guided. The car was comfortable for the six of us and quiet enough that we could have conversation during the travel. Gustavo's knowledge of geography, history, route mapping, local restaurants, local beer and cider, and most of the D-Day were impressive. The visits to the D-Day beaches, museums and cemeteries were touching and Gustavo's commentaries were superb. With out doubt, use Gustavo.

Jim McIntyreUnited States
Gustavo's enthusiasm and knowledge of all the history surrounding the Normandy experience was infectious. It made for a long day when traveling to and from Paris but the experience was well worth the effort.
Stacey LynchUnited States
Gustavo picked us up on time from our hotel. He was friendly and knowledgeable about Normandy, the various landing sites, specific battles and WWII history in general. An added bonus was that his van has rows of seats that face each other, which was nice for talking on the long ride round trip from Paris.

Rebecca JohnstonUnited States
Gustavo did a great job for my group. He was knowlegable, helpful, and an excellent driver. We were a very diverse group and he made every one happy. His van was very nice. He chose an excellent assortment of the most important sights in the DDay theater and conveyed their importance while also allowing private time for reflection.

Gustavo was a great guide - very knowledgeable and personable.
Jeffrey PawlowskiUnited States
Excellent guide. The right combination of personality, information and ability to modify details of the trip as he see interest from the people taking the tour. I was also pleased that he was not a clock watcher, he took extra time to make sure we saw everything and more.
Michael ChaseUnited States
excellent was very informative on Normandy and made the day very enjoyable. Highly recommend him as a guide
Gustavo is a nice, very informative guide. I'm travelling with parents and a 5 years old kid.He was willing to explain when I was in doubt or did not truly understand about the history of the places that we visited, until I could understand. He would also try his best to accommodate our needs and request during the trip. I would recommend him as your guide. No need to worry about transportation because he owns a car/van.
Len CarpezziUnited States

Gustavo was a fantastic guide! We had specific requests and interests and he went above and beyond to ensure we had a fantastic trip. Ours was a private tour with 3 adults and our son, and he made the day enjoyable and went out of his way to make sure our 8 year old son was informed and was having a great time too. We were very impressed how knowledgable he was on the tour and how personable he was with a variety of other things and conversation. Thank You Gustavo!
Heidi LingUnited States
This was my second tour to Normandy with Gustavo in 6 months, the first with friends, the second with my husband and daughter. Gustavo is great and we would recommend him for any of his tours. He is knowledgeable and personable. The tour repeat was great for me even the second time.
Charles LavariniUnited States
Good guide, saw more than we would have on our own.
Heidi LingUnited States
Gustavo is a fantastic guide! On the drive to Normandy he gave us a very detailed history of the region, starting with the Normans and Saxons, and leading into the immediate context of the Normandy invasions. He also shared with us his perspective of how the presentation of the Normandy invasions has evolved over time and the changes that have occurred in the region. We also enjoyed our lively discussions about European politics and culture. We will definitely ask for Gustavo again next time!
Joseph GuerraUnited States
Our party of four had a very enjoyable, informative tour of Normandy with Gustavo. With a limited amount of time, he made sure we saw as many sights as possible and had a few moments to do some shopping, too !!!
R. Wayne MinskyUnited States
Gustavo was an excellent tour guide. we were with him for over 12 hours from Paris to Normandy . he made the experience very interesting.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Wayne! Glad that you enjoyed the tour, despite the bomb alert at Colleville :)
J. Sue KremerUnited States
The day we spent with Gustavo at the WWII sites in Normandy was one we will not soon forget. The day was emotional, educational and memorable on so many levels. We were sorely disappointed that the American Cemetery was closed due to the Government shut down, but Gustavo smoothly substituted a side trip to Bayeaux to see the fabulous tapestry at the Cathedral there. He was a great guide - very patient and very knowledgeable. We would not hesitate to recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Susan It was a pleasure to take you in a tour. Thanks for your review! As I said already, don't hesitate to contact me if you come back to Paris.
