Nick was our guide and he did a great job of making the tour interesting both for the geek and the noob, i.e. for those who already have a keen interest in the events of D-Day 6.6.1944 and for those who were dragged there by their partner/relative/parent/friend with a deep interest. Nick's knowledge was vast and detailed and he answered every question in an engaging and initiated way. The four hour tour was perfectly balanced for a mixed group where not all share the same fascination for the subject. Even when the PA system in the bus malfunctioned Nick took it in the stride and managed the situation well by just raising his voice so all could hear his comments during the short bus trip from Bayeux to the sites.
Nick was our tour guide... He was absolutely amazing. The depth of his knowledge and the passion with which he shares it has left my father and I with a memory of a lifetime. The 4 hours just flew by. Nick really shined in the moments of waiting for others to come back to the van to move on to the next spot. He was engaging and willing to answer questions. This trip to Normandy with my father is/was a trip of a lifetime and Nick made it that much more special. Thank you Nick.
We had a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and had a passion for history. If you're in France, Normandy is a must. We spend the perfect amount of time at the key locations and were able to appreciate what we were witnessing with the detailed context our guide provided. Additionally, he went above and beyond in putting us in contact with people who could assist us with travel plans as necessitated by the train strike.
Very impactful trip. Our tour guy, Boy did a great job of showing how everything happened as we went by each location. The places we stopped at and had time to look around were amazing. Highly recommended.
Mike is awesome! Truly passionate about WWII and making sure you have the best possible trip. He's a huge history buff and takes part in reenactments in his free time so he knows all the little details to provide you with the perfect context as you witness the sites. In fact, he's been to the cemetery so many times that a guy in our group asked for help finding a relative's grave and Mike knew exactly where it was! Plus the people at the visitors center all know him. Highly recommend this tour!
Excellent tour. Mike was a fantastic guide: informed, passionate, cordial, organized and charismatic. He really brought the history alive. We took a half-day tour and wished we had done a full day. Highly recommended!
