Couldn't have asked for a more convenient tour and very knowledgeable guide. The meeting place of Bayeux is just 2 hours outside of Paris by train and Roel met us right outside of the train station. He was able to tell our small group a great deal of information on what happened on D-Day while keeping it very interesting. We... More

Our Victory Tour was excellent. Full of history, interesting stories, and quite obvious he has a passion for the topic. The tour group size was perfect for asking questions, being able to hear what was being said, and getting the true feel of the sights. We appreciated his attention to detail - making sure that we knew exactly where to... More

Get ready for the tour of your life! Take all the necessary equipment with you and be prepared to just follow the leader! We were amazed at the volumes of information that we were given during our Normandy Beach Tour! It was very well organized and the time went quickly moving from place to place with photos and extensive narratives... More

My wife and I took a day trip to Bayeaux to go on a full day tour and we are glad that we chose Victory Tours! We booked the trip online and Roel sent us personal confirmation emails with detailed instructions on which train to take from Paris and where to meet him. Roel is Victory Tours and he takes... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 hour tour with Roel! Our day started a little rocky because we didn't read his directions thoroughly and we were late meeting up. He could not have tried harder to find us and the tour was amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable, amusing, and kind. The day could not have been better.

My wife and I had a wonderful full day tour with Roel in early October. Our tour group was varied in age and background but all were congenial and engaged, the timing of train to and from Paris was excellent. Roel brought a rare passion and knowledge to our tour. Despite being unable to visit the American Cemetery due to... More

My husband and I booked a tour with Roel Klinkhamer via his www.victorytours.com website based on reviews that I read on this site as well as others. We met Roel and the rest of the group on 9/25/13 for a full day D-Day Tour and were very pleased with the entire experience. Roel is a true professional guide and is... More

Our one day tour of Normandy with Rouel was one of the highlights of our trip to France. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about D Day.. he brings the events to life with his facts, binder of photos, and personal stories from the Veterans who he has met through the years. Rouel was very helpful and communicative by email... More

Roel was a wonderful guide. Our small group started in the beautiful town of Bayeux. Roel kept one step ahead of any large bus group that was arriving to the areas. At times it seemed as if we had the beaches to ourselves with Roel describing the events of D Day in detail and emotion. We took the full day... More
