A Recent Review of this tour

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!
