With 2 young-adult sons, 22 & 24, one a history major at University, and neither interested in art museums(!), we agreed to take them to the D-Day beaches. A friend had just gone with Roel, so we signed up. He has a perfect day planned out, he knows the subject, he has great stories, and even after over 2000 tours,... More

We are so glad that we chose to have Roel guide us through the stories and locations from the D-Day invasion. He had the perfect background stories that really helped to bring the conflict to life. We did the one day tour, which was just enough to give us a clear sense of that awful day, but if we had... More

Roel is a no-nonsense tour guide. His stories will leave a lasting impact on you. He genuinely shares his knowledge of the liberation of France. With deep emotion, he shares unique stories he has acquired through his many years of offering tours of Normandy.

My husband and I went on a D-Day tour with Roel (Victory Tours) in late May. We picked Victory Tours based on recommendations from Rick Steves Guidebooks as well as Trip Advisor. Both recommendations were completely on point. Roel was fantastic. He provided wonderful commentary throughout the visit, poignant and funny, and was exceptionally knowledgable about each site as well... More

My wife and I recently took a day trip from Paris to tour the D-Day sites. Roel picked us up in a small van right outside the Bayeux train station. What a fantastic day! First of all, Roel limits the number in his tour to a really small group, so you will have a personal guide throughout the area. Roel... More

We booked a tour with Roel for 4, including one teenager. Booking and payment was efficient. We took the train in from Paris for the day and were picked up and dropped off at the station by Roel. We ended up with a private tour as the other people who had booked canceled. By the time we had loaded up... More

This was a wonderful tour of the Normandy beaches. Roul is very knowledgeable and had pictures to explain what happened on the beaches. We went to some extraordinary sites and ate a picnic lunch in a lovely setting.

My research onTrip Advisor for a D Day tour led me to Victory Tours, and what a terrific find it was!!!! Roel is incredibly knowledgeable, and he has a wonderful way of presenting his information. We had a fantastic day, and I would recommend Roel Klinkhammer without hesitation.

My husband and I toured the D-Day beaches with Roel just a few weeks ago. It was an amazing experience. Roel puts you right into the historical context of the beaches. He brings detailed maps and photos and narrates the story in such a way that you can really understand what you are looking at and why it is to... More

Our family of 7 (Grandparents, Parents, and Grandkids) booked a day trip with Roel Klinkhamer's Victory Tour. Roel is extremely knowledgeable about the battles of D-Day. He shared many interesting stories and made sure that he answered all of our questions. We would highly recommend this tour. It's time well spent.
