Marianne is very knowledgeable about WW ll and the Normandy beaches, plus she is a very warm person. We had a a very enjoyable day visiting Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Brach, and the American cemetery. It was a very moving experience. We were picked up at our hotel, and everything worked out well. I highly recommend Marianne if you want someone with a wealth of knowledge in this area of France.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Linda. I really enjoyed this day with you and your husband.It was just great to share my passion for history with both of you. I wish you the very best Marianne

Marianne was a very good tour guide, and her husband Guy was an excellent and efficient driver. She had a good, positive manner, was easy to understand, and had good knowledge of the areas we toured. We liked her point of reference that her parents were part of the French resistance. There was absolutely no confusion as to where we were going, what we were seeing, where we should park, etc. A nice day with pleasant people and a good tour! Thanks, Miss Marianne!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elaine for your rating. We wish you a pleasant summer Marianne and Guy

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Marianne. She was not only knowledgeable in the subject but seemed well versed in so many areas and was able answer the many questions my family had for her. She was a pleasure to spend time with and had us all laughing at her anecdotes and jokes. We travel all the time and have had many tour guides and agree Marianne was one of the best we have had.

Marianne gave a 5 star performance on a 1 star weather day. Though cold, windy and raining ,she told the story of D-Day events with great perseverance. She was very well versed in not only the historical details, but with insights from her own families experiences. With the aid of her husband who was the driver, we were able to accomplish a lot in the time allotted. I would highly recommend this tour and Marianne. J. McMahill

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello James How nice to read such à great comment! We are so happy you had à great time with us. I also appreciate your sense of humour.

We had an incredible day touring D Day beaches with Marianne and her husband, Gilles. She was incredibly well read and filled the day with historical facts, interesting anecdotes and a fascinating personal history of her father in the French resistance and Nazi arrests and escapes. The most moving part of the day with the American Cemetery. The field of white crosses and stars was humbling and sad. My 15 year old loved the Point Du Hoc bunkers and the IMAX movie. Wonderful experience. 5 of 5 stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heidi and Kurt I do t known how to thank you for such a great comment! We are so happy to have been able to make this day memorable for you. We enjoyed your company and deeply appreciate your interest and curiosity. Have a great summer. A special hug to Ethan ! Marianne and Guy

Marianne is excellent!!! We had only 1 day to see as much as possible and she exceeded our expectations. The transportation to each site was comfortable and valuable to provide context for each site we visited. Marianne even took us off the traditional tourist route where we gained even more insight to the D-Day operations. Highly recommend booking a tour with Marianne for a wonderful experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jenine You have no idea how happy I was when I read your comment! . As you could see, I love to share my passions and emotions. And I was so lucky to spend this day with you and your family. Thank you so much! We are definitily in tune! Have a great summer Marianne

Marianne is a great guide and we couldn't have been more pleased. We had visited the area twice before, once in great depth, therefore we appreciated even more her depth of knowledge and the enthusiasm with which she guided us. We recommend her without hesitation!
