We did a half-day tour as a family of 5 in mid-december. I couldn't imagine a better way to see Normany- Roel picked us up in a van and drove us to all the essential stops- Omaha Beach, the American Cemetery, Pointe du Hoc, and more. He had extensive knowledge and kept us all engaged. Would absolutely recommend to anyone... More

Having chosen Victory Tours solely because of the online reviews, any reservations I had were immediately put to rest with the first email correspondence with Roel, as he was professional, helpful, efficient and friendly. I booked the one day private tour for my family of 7 (ages 57, 56, 29, 27, 27, 27, 24), and a great day was had... More

Roel brings an encyclopedic knowledge and a passionate interest in WWII history to help the visitor experience D-Day 70+ years later! We scheduled same-day train round trip travel from Paris (approximately 2-1/2 hours each way, but quite manageable), and Roel met us at the station in Bayeux for a private half-day (4 ½ hrs) Normandy Landing Beaches Tour. His familiarity... More

This was the second tour I had with Roel (the first was fifteen years ago). Roel is very knowledgable about the area and its history. Most importantly, he is extremely passionate about the history of WWII, and the experience of those who lived it. This was the best part of our stay in France. There is no better option for... More

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
