Marianne is a classy Parisian, now living with her husband Guy (and excellent driver!) near Normandy. She recommended the Hotel Mathilde in Bayeux and it was fantastic. Marianne is extremely knowledgeable about D-Day and specifically about history from 50 years ago and back. She also taught us so much about the US Cemetery. As an inactive US Army officer and Company Commander, I now understand D-Day and how the Allied Forces tactically achieved a significant victory - a turning point of the war.

We LOVED our experience with Marianne. From the minute we met Marianne & Guy, we had an instant connection. On our tour, we wanted to have fun, learn, and be entertained. Marianne gets a "FIVE STAR" rating in all three areas. She was extremely knowledgeable and relevant. She delivered a perfect balance of stories and facts. Her reverence for the Normandy sites was impressive. When we come back, we'll definitely be calling Marianne!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wouah Joe! A great rating so quickly! You are just wonderful and I thank you so much! I spent one of my best time with you and your lovely sons! We were in tune! Warm regards. Marianne

Our Omaha Beach and American Cemetery tour with Marianne was fantastic. We met Marianne at the Caen train station where we picked up our rental car--she directed our travel out of town and into the countryside beautifully. We enjoyed an information filled morning/early afternoon with Marianne, learning fascinating stories about the area, WW II, French resistance fighters. Our stops at Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery were very moving. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really apologise to answer you so late. I was certain I did! What a shame after you sent me such a great feedback! Thank you so much ! WE HAD A GREAT TIME WITH YOU. And I perfectly remember you. Sorry again for my silence! I usually respond very quickly! Kind regards Marianne
