We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Bayeux and Caen with Ezzedine. He is very personable and extremely knowledgeable. He ensured that we saw all of the places in both cities that interested us. We recommend Ezzedine to anyone who wants to visit these two wonderful cities. Thank you Ezze!!!

What a wonderful guide. He has volumes of information, was able to curate the tour to our needs, and was extremely kind and hospitable. He was one of the best parts of the entire trip!

Date: Sep 25/19

Ezzedine made our visit to the DDay Beaches all we could have wished for. He's very knowledgeable about the history of the site and mindful of our objectives and interests in visiting the site. He's gracious, witty and considerate. He even arranged a wonderful lunch for us and made sure we had a seat at the window to view the sea while dining. If we visit Normandy again, he would be at the top of our list.

Date: Sep 19/19

We had a very nice day with Ezzedine. He picked us up promptly and suggested a little different itinerary than we had originally planned and it worked perfectly. Honfleur was very charming and we enjoyed the tour and free time there. We continued on to some of the British WW2 sites and Pegasus Bridge, where we also had lunch. We ended the day in Caen, which we hadn't planned, but glad we were able to see it. Ezzedine is very knowledgeable and personable. We highly recommend his services!

Tour: American D Day Beaches and landing sites, Bayeux, Normandy, France
Date: Sep 11/19

Ezzedine was the perfect guide for our group of 6 for the Normandy sites. He is extremely knowledgeable concerning this era and delighted in sharing his insights. As well as being professional he is friendly and responded to our questions easily. His stops during out tour included some spots not frequently seen and he suggested an outstanding local restaurant that was delicious as well as very quaint. I would highly recommend Ezzedine to anyone looking for an in depth, personal tour.

Ezzedine was very knowledgeable and passionate about the material. He is a professor of modern history at the local university and thus much more than your usual tour guide. He tailored the day to meet our interests and needs which made the day even better. We are very grateful to have had him to guide us on such a special day which could not have been better. Do not hesitate to use him as he was outstanding.

Ezzedine's tour was wonderful! We met on schedule and began 8 hours+ of our Normandy tour. Ezzedine asked for our interests, then supplemented the tour with stops like the Bayeux Tapestry of which only one of us was aware, but became a "do not miss" stop on our Normandy tour. We focused on the American Sector, but Ezzedine made sure we visited the England/Canadian Sectors so we had a full understanding of the landing. Our tour of the American Cemetery was sobering... but critical. Get this guide!

This tour is exactly what we were looking for. We had limited time, but wanted to learn a little about Normandy and WW II and this did exactly that. Ezzedine was personable and even made changes to his original itinerary based on our family interests (we had 3 kids 8, 11, 14). We appreciated his insights and fun facts. Would definitely book another tour with him and the company again on future trips!

Ezzedine was prompt and very enthusiastic! He tailored the tour into one amazing sightseeing adventure. Ezzedine was knowledgeable at every stop and got us in or very close to the action. I felt like a VIP. We had a five year old with us and Ezzedine was very accommodating for her. He stopped or slowed the pace when needed. His restaurant choices were spot on. His genuine love of his job and for the group really showed. Thanks for a great tour and we'll certainly book Ezzedine again!

Ezzedine was an outstanding guide for us. He explained with details every location visited and answered our questions. He provided resources, shared experiences, and took the time to assist us with us ordering lunch. Ezzedine must be commended for his attention to details.

My wife and I use ToursByLocals for two international vacations per year. We often use multiple tour guides in our travels. ToursByLocals always have great local flavored tourist service. Ezzedine provided guide services for four of our five guided all day tours in France and Normandy. Ezzy was not only a good tour guide but became a great friend. Stevens

Ezzedrine stepped in at the last minute and gave us a day long private tour based around my fathers landing on Omaha beach. And was very flexible to meet our needs all day. So appreciative of his efforts and the background research he had conducted overnight. Wished he had had the time to rent the minivan he usually takes for comfort, but hard to make that happen at such short notice. Very knowledgeable about entire area, D Day and World War II. Thank you Ezzedrine for a very moving and memorable day.

Ezzedine is the best. He has a PHD and teaches history at the University in Caen. I would highly highly recommend him. His knowledge of not only D-Day history but history in the area is unbelievable. You not only get the history of the D-Day invasion but of Normandy as well which you obviously pass through on your way to the beaches.

Hire Ezz to be your D-Day guide! Ezz was punctual and met our train from Paris as it pulled into the station. He had our agreed upon itinerary laid out on a map to discuss with me. He was very knowledgeable about D-Day, the local history, and the local culture. We were on a reasonably tight schedule as we had a lot of ground to cover before we caught the train back to Paris, and Ezz had an impeccable sense of timing as to about how much time we could spend at each place and still cover what I wanted.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Doug and Debbie, I also enjoyed spending the day with you and I hope that we will meet again. Best regards Ezzedine H.

Because of times contrains, we e took a special tour with Ezzedine that proved to be as knowledgeable in the subjects as his resume says, besides he is a very educated and passionate person which makes communication very easy. He is very well prepared and certainly left everybody in my group much more updated with the fantastic history of that place. If I would have to repeat this tour, certainly I would call Ezzedine in the first place. If any friend of mine asks how to know Normandie, he is the guy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment. I had also a wonderful time with you and every member of your friendly family. I am glad to know that my explanations during the tour were profound and amusing at the same time. I promise to keep doing my job in a passionate and interesting way. I send my warm salutations to all your family (especially to your mother) and I hope we will meet again through ToursByLocals. Best regards Ezzedine H. Licensed National Guide and Lecturer
