Richard provided an excellent tour along with comfortable accommodations. (other tours were a bit crammed for 4 people; but not Richard's) He has great knowledge of history, and provided lots of interesting information while showing us sites of greatest interest.

Richard was excellent. He's extremely knowledgeable and personable. We no sooner got into his van when he began the history of WWI which led to WWII. He didn't stop talking for the next 1 1/2 hrs. He made the history fascinating and the time flew by. He answered all questions thoroughly. He took the effort to find my Uncle's gravesite and about his division during D-Day. I would highly recommend him.

Richard is a remarkable guide. We wanted a tour of the D-Day beaches and cemetery and we got that and so much more! The information he gave us throughout the day made the sights we saw that much more meaningful. Several people we met along the way wished they were part of our tour!! He showed us the charming, picture-perfect town of Honfleur. We also took advantage of the opportunity to see a tapestry from 1067 of William conquering England in 1066. It was a very unexpected bonus. Great day!

We had a wonderful day with Richard exploring the Canadian WW2 sites. Richard was one of the best guides that we have ever had. He arrived on time with a comfortable vehicle (water provided) and used a microphone so all could easily hear his explanations of how the war started and what occurred. He was easy to understand and made history come alive. Richard gave us exactly what we had asked for plus more. Richard made excellent use of our time to give us maximum value for our money. Recommend him highly.

I was on the tour guided by Richard on or about April 21 to the Canadian beaches of Normandy, beginning from our ship, the Crown Princess. Richard was incredibly knowledgeable and we could not have been more satisfied with the tour. Absolutely outstanding! And the others I believe felt the same. Thank you

Richard gave us a fabulous tour. He knew exactly how to guide us to optimize our ability to see everything of importance. He was extremely knowledgable and made the events come alive. He accommodated the wishes of our group and made the day one we will not forget.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Marion and her group, are very enjoyable group. Their enthusiasm was communicative and made me bring the best out of myself. Their interest for WWII history is real and strong, so it made the guiding even more interesting also for me.

Richard was an amazing tour guide. He was knowledgable, friendly, and very accommodating. Our group of six all agreed that this tour was the highlight of our cruise vacation. Thank you Richard!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: When I have such nice and interested visitors with me, guiding the D-Day beaches is a pleasure. It was a great day also for me.

Our day with Richard at Normandy was very pleasant and informative. He was a wealth of knowledge and flexibility with the weather and traffic conditions ( possible strikes led us through the most beautiful back roads which we would have never seen!) which all made for a very comfortable day for us. We recommend Richard for all groups!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed guiding Beth and her group. We had a pleasant day and I always enjoy guiding such interested groups trough Normandy.

We had a wonderful time with Richard, he is very knowledgeable and professional. We saw and learned so much. The D-Day beaches and cemeteries were very emotional. We had lunch at a small café and the crepes were great. Richard was able to accommodate the four of us, a wheelchair and walker. He was very patient with my husband who is handicapped. We would highly recommend this tout.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lynette and here husband where a perfect exemple, that the beaches can be visited by everybody. As the sites of the 6 of June landing see many veterans coming back, it is natural for us all here in Normandy, that everybody should be able to visit the beaches. It was a pleasure to guide you all four on the beaches.

What a wonderful day we spent with Richard. I am so glad I booked a private tour of the DDay Beaches and the American Cemetery with Richard. He took time and patience with us and is very knowledgeable. He was so solicitous of my husband and his walking limitations and helped him with his mobility scooter. Thank you Richard for a memorable day in Normandy. I am a student of World War 2 and seeing these historic places meant a lot to me. Thanks for taking us to Ste Mere Eglise. Jean K.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Jean for your praise. It was a pleasure for me to guide you and your husband around the D-Day beaches. Especially it was an honor to guide around a retired Navy officer, so I was able to show him where his comrade fought bravely in World war II. Richard H.

Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) recently toured with Richard. Our entire family learned so much in one day. He is a true historian with not only extensive knowledge but such an interesting way of presenting it. We enjoyed all of the sites, he avoided the cruise ship crowds and his knowledge of D-day and exploring Normandy were outstanding!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the compliments. I also enjoyed to show you around, as it's always enjoyable to help kids and parents to understand the sacrifice of the great generation of US soldier, here on the D-Day beaches.

There were 7 in our group, and we could not have been happier with Richard as our guide to the D-day beaches. He was extremely informative and well versed in the area and presented smoothly. He made the day even more enjoyable by going through small towns on our way like Honfleur. What a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this tour, but especially this guide! Kathy Moon

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, it's easy to guide in Normandy when you have so interest and eager to learn visitors as yourself. It was a pleasure to guide you and I enjoyed the day very much. Richard H.

The tour was great to Normandy;however our tour guide Richard was not well and he was coughing and sneezing in confined quarters . A few of our friends that were traveling with us became ill. Richard is very knowledgeable and knows his history extremely well. Would definitely recommend him . Too bad he was not feeling great

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Paula, yes I'm sorry that was my worst day, since then I'm fit again. It was unfortunately the cold which everybody catches once a year and it had to be on that day.
