Andy was, in a word, awesome. Should the opportunity arise to tour with him again I would jump at the chance. My husband and I spent 5 days with Andy running all over Normandy - from the obvious D-day sites, to the more obscure locations filled with individual events and stories narrated by Andy's extensive knowledge. The entire experience was positive, from the flexibility to change plans conducive to "weather of the moment", to spending more/less) time at a particular location as interest dictated.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Cyndi, I thoroughly enjoyed my week taking you around and hope you can make it back to Normandy again sometime. I'm pleased I could give you a touring experience that suiited your needs. Best wishes, Andy.

We had an excellent day in Normandy with Andy. Using both factual and anecdotal accounts, he provided an outstanding tour of the D-Day beaches that provided a clear and impactful depiction of the planning and circumstances of the allied landings. Andy is prompt, engaging and of good humor. We enjoyed our time with him immensely and give him our highest recommendation. Thanks, Andy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for the comments George, it's always nice to know one has succeeded in satisfying one's clients! I hope we meet again in Normandy.

Andy C is an outstanding guide of the Normandy area. He is so knowledgeable about the events surrounding D-day. He was an engaging and enthusiastic guide. He gave us time to explore the American Cemetery and some of the beaches on our own after providing a comprehensive overview. At lunch time, he made several suggestions so that we could choose what worked best for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with him and highly recommend him as a guide for the Normandy area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm pleased I could give you memorable day visiting the D-Day sites and that you enjoyed the day. Many thanks for the kind comments.

Andy did an excellent job. He was prompt to meet us both mornings. He was friendly, knowledgeable, well-spoken, attentive to the 3 children on the tour to make comments that would be meaningful to them. His schedule of which places to go each day showed attentiveness to priority. Everything he did for us on the two days streamlined our days and we feel that we got a great tour with him. We highly recommend him!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for the kind words Linda, I'm pleased I could give you the tours you wanted.

Andy was fabulous. He provided tons of information about the Canadians in Normandy and helped me find detailed information about my father and took me to the exact spot he landed. I could not have asked for more and it's a day we will never forget. Thank you Andy,

We went on several tours on our recent trip to Europe and we all agree that Andy was the best. He is extremely knowledgeable about Normandy and the history of the region in World War II and is excellent at providing that knowledge in an entertaining way. He was willing to accommodate our request to visit both Mont St. Michel and Omaha Beach and the U.S. cemetery. He also found us a wonderful Creperie in a small village near Mont St. Michel for lunch. We very highly recommend Andy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great to know I could provide you with an interesting and entertaining day. Many thanks for the kind comments.

Andy is amazing person. He made us feel like we been friends for years. We were so comfortable to be around him. His knowledge of theregion and the events of the past enhanced our experience so much. Andy provided unlimited, detailed information on every significant point we drove by and every important city, beach, and monument we visited. He also took us to a local restaurant where we enjoyed lunch with the flavor with the locals. We can't say enough good things about our time with Andy.

Andy was a fantastic guide. He arrived on time, listened to what we were hoping for and adjusted his plan accordingly. He possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of the events surrounding D-Day as well as the culture and history of Normandy in general which he imparted to us peppered with anecdotes that we would not have heard anywhere else. When we were tired, he knew to kick back a bit to let us catch our breaths. His car was clean and comfortable. We can recommend him wholeheartedly!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Robert, I passed an enjoyable day with you too! Pleased I could give you the tour you wanted.

EXTREMELY knowledgable about the whole area and the war. Very patient and thorough in answering our many questions. Made the whole experience feel very personal and helped us really understand what it was like day to day for the men serving. That made the difference for me-to understand it on a more personal level. He seemed to know how much time our group needed at each of the sites and we never felt rushed. Suggested a place for lunch and it was perfect! Can't say enough great things about Andy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Julie, I'm pleased I could give you the tour you wanted. Come again!

Amazing tour of the D-Day sites! Andy was incredibly personable and extremely knowledgeable of the history of the sites and the area in general. Yes, you'll see the beaches and the bigger sites, but you'll also see some of the smaller sites you'd miss on a bigger tour. I also appreciated that we could drive our own car for the tour, taking longer where we wanted. Thanks for such a special day, Andy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. Many thanks for your comments.

We took our tour on June 29,2019 with Andy. He was on time and we had great weather for the Normandy US Beaches tour. He was very knowledgeable and gave us new insite into the D-Day invasion. Seeing everything on the itenerary and even getting us to a few non tourist/small places that were of great interest to us. I would reccomend Andy for any tour of the Normandy area of France and for any reason you would like to go as well. I only wish I had a week with him as a guide in the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great feedback Owen, it was a pleasure to take you on tour. I hope I see you again in Normandy sometime.

Andy was informative, knowledgeable, and witty. He selected appropriate sites; gave us an overview; and was good company over the whole day. He was able to engage those with a thorough grounding already and those who just had a general understanding. He tailored the experience. All benefitted. An excellent guide and a worthwhile extremely interesting day. It was the highlight of our trip.

Andy was amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and has a wonderful personality. Visiting Normandy and the D-Day sites is something Barry wanted to do for years and Andy made it special. We both spent time before our trip learning more about the sites we would be visiting, but Andy had so much more information, and wonderful antidotes that made the stories come alive. You can tell he genuinely enjoys what he does and it is reflected in his service. Highly recommend Andy if you are coming to Normandy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for the kind comments. I always try to give people the tour they want, and I'm pleased I succeeded for you. Come back and see me again soon!

Andy spent 10 hours with us showing us the Beaches of Normandy. It was the highlight of a 3 week holiday. He was punctual, respectful, flexible, and a wealth of knowledge. He will give as much or little history as the customer wants. We found him to be delightful. We completely enjoyed his company. He picked up us at the port and drove us (very safely) to the beaches, the American cemetery and the Arromanches theatre. He was willing to let us take our time wherever we were. 100% satisfied!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Karen, you were an outstanding group! Come back again sometime.

Andy did an outstanding job in explaining the events of the D-day Normandy invasion. He was knowlegeable in specific actions and events. He added a personal touch to the comings and goings of the Allied forces and included facts regarding the German defenders. Andy provided bits and pieces of information that are not available when reading the story of D-day. Andy was always on time when meeting our party and maintained a schedule that ensured maxium coverage of the Normandy conflict. He is the best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Pleased I could be of service. It was great to have a group who knew exactly what they wanted to see! Many thanks.

We spent 2 delightful days with Andy exploring Normandy. He was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed our time with him very much. In addition to the tour of Mont St. Michel and the Normandy beaches, he put together a custom day where we were able to visit a family owned cidery/calvados maker as well as the beautiful towns of Honfleur, Trouville, and Deauville with a delicious lunch at the fish market. This was a 5 star experience all the way! Thanks Andy!
