An outstanding experience. Our guide, Vincent, was extremely knowledgeable and personable, and he made a long, long day seem like it just flew by. He communicated with our kids in a way that kept them engaged, and that can sometimes be a challenge. We're very thankful that we chose this tour and this guide for our visit to Normandy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and happy New year

Vincent is a skilled communicator and knowledgeable in his Normandy D-Day history. For maximizing your enjoyment on the tour I recommend taking both heavy and light shoes, and heavy and light coats in a carry-on bag along with water and crackers during the winter season. All in all a well executed journey to the Normandy Beaches thanks to Vincent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Dean

Our goal was to see as much as possible while learning something as well. He far surpassed our expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable and gives enough information to make it interesting, yet doesn't overwhelm you with too much. He is passionate about his city and what he does. He was great about showing us points of interest off the beaten path. He was also masterful at maneuvering through traffic at the busiest time of day. He was personable and fun to be with. Highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the positive feedback, Jeffrey! Hope to have you again!

We had a great trip with Vincent. He was a wealth of historical knowledge of Europe and made our journey to Normandy a pleasure. Vincent was full of information about the invasion sites, the memorials, and the cemeteries. We had a wonderful tour and the location he chose for lunch was excellent. We would recommend Vincent to anyone wanting to tour Normandy from Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the feedback, David. I enjoyed touring with you as well. Hope to have you again soon!

Vincent was the consummate guide - incredibly knowledgeable, funny and very engaging. He had such patience for my son, who is on the autism spectrum. He answered all of my son's questions, and really engaged him in the tour. The only suggestion I would make to Vincent is to give people time limits at each site. We were a group of seven, with two in our group taking too much time snapping pictures, which is no fault of Vincent's!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Vincent

Vincent was extremely knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed his explanations and his use of English, German, and Spanish throughout the tour. He was accommodating to our 9 year old's activity level. He made every effort to allow us to see as much of the Normandy landing sites within our limited one day tour. We will gladly use his services again.

Vincent did a great job. My feedback would be that, for $1100, there was no provided bottled water and there was never a question from him about any needed comfort stop. I'd hate to send clients that were left thirsty and not asked about a comfort stop until lunch which, for us, was after 1 p.m.—4 hours into the tour. We get bottled water with transfers for much less and would expect at least bottled water for the drive when we spend this much. It would have been a nice touch.

Our family had a fantastic day touring Versailles with Vincent! He was excellent at sharing his knowledge of France history, Paris history, and the finer points about what can be seen at Versailles. As an experienced tour guide, he was very adept at communicating his in-depth knowledge of each personality, structures, furnishings, and grounds that he ensured we experienced. While his tour for us was fast-paced, it was very appropriate given everything we wanted to see! Depth & breadth of knowledge +++++!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Kevin! I enjoyed touring with your family as well. Hope to see you again soon!

Vincent is a professional. He knows the history, background and details of the places he shows his guests. He was very helpful when my parents needed to see the attraction at a slower pace. He knows all the back roads and the places to have lunch that have a local flavor. Excellent English. Arrived on time. Entire group was comfortable. Would book with him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lara, for the kind words. I enjoyed touring with your family! Hope to have you again in Paris!

My family of 4 (2 kids ages 14 and 12) had a fabulous time on this tour with Vincent. He was punctual and very knowledgeable. He interacted with my kids and we all had a great day. I would definitely book another tour with him in the future. He was easy to talk to and a nice person. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Vincent is a good tour guide. He knew how to manage the tour so we could see smaller areas before they became to crowded. We had a long tour day so he kindly suggested a great local place near Versailles for lunch. We had an amazing lunch!

Vincent was very knowledgeable but wasn't very personable. There were 6 people in our group and I was sitting in the back of the van and could not hear everything being said. At our first stop I asked him a question and he told me that he had already told us the answer. Needless to say I didn't ask any more questions. It took 4 hours to get to Normandy because of a wreak, not Vincent's fault, but asked to stop at a McDonalds and he wouldn't stop. Took us to a local coffee bar where the man was very rude.

Vincent is very knowledgeable about the places we visited. He was very accommodating, as my husband has difficulty getting around, and Vincent pushed him in a wheelchair at Versailles. He is a good conversationalist, and a very good driver. We would definitely book a tour with him again, if we go back to Paris. Merci beaucoup!

Vincent was very knowledgeable and a great driver too. He knew all of the history of Normandy and ww2. He showed us the entire area and even made the trip interactive and fun for our kids. As a bonus, he was very aware of getting us fresh healthy food for our meals( not just fast fried food). We had a great day.
