My fellow- homeschooling friend and I just got back from our European Field Trip with our boys ages 9 and 12. It was such a wonderful experience with many highlights between Paris - Normandy - Prague and Amsterdam. But the 2 day tour with John from France Custom Tours was far and away the richest time of the trip. We... More

We were very pleased with our D Day Normandy Tour through LinkParis! Our guide, Rosie, was very friendly and knowledgeable, and she did a wonderful job explaining the history behind all of the sites. We had a group of six people, which was nice compared to larger tour groups I have been on in the past. The tour included a... More

My group of friends and I, eleven adults in total, hired John Bromage, who runs the independent boutique tour guiding company France Custom Tours, to take us around Normandy and Brittany for eight days. John is British, but has been based in Normandy for a long time. In addition, accompanying us was a second guide and driver – Tim Smith... More

Just spent 3 days with Tim Smith from France Custom Tours and the experience could not have been better! Tim really brought D-Day to life. We visited all 5 beaches as well as 3 major cemeteries, museums and several sites of engagement off the beaches. He filled us in with all the units involved and acts of individual soldiers. A...

Having a lot of ground to cover in one day in Normandy and our 41/2 year old daughter in tow, a good friend recommended Tim Smith. We were not disappointed. He was not only able to show us the highlights of Normandy generally and D Day specifically, but to put the event in context and convey an appreciation for the... More

A trip to the American Cemetery and the D-Day beaches had been on my personal "bucket list" for many years, and John Bromage guided us through a memorable day that surpassed my expectations. He is very well-informed on a variety of subjects, most notably the events of WW II and the D-Day landings in particular. We learned a great deal... More

My wife and our two daughters had the pleasure of having Tim Smith guide us across Normandy visiting D-Day historical locations. Tim was fantastic. He met us at the train as soon as we got off. He is a Vietnam veteran from the 101st Airborne so he brings a unique understanding of the battlefields. We met at Carentan and as... More

We had the great pleasure of spending a full day touring the American sectors of the D-Day invasion of Normandy with Tim Smith of France Custom Tours. Tim's incredible knowledge of the invasion included taking us to key locations which large tour buses wouldn't be able to negotiate, as well as lesser-known locations that played pivotal roles in the operation....

Tim picked us up at the Bayeux for a WWII tour. Plenty of room for 6 adults. He was willing to go to areas that suited our interest as well as finding out special interest so he could speak to them. The tour was very comprehensive as well as being very informative. He obviously knows what he is speaking about.... More

Our family, including two children ages 8 and 9, just spent a great day with Tim Smith. We learned so much and covered a lot of ground. The kids never complained once over the course of a ten hour day, which speaks highly to the quality of the tour guide! Highly recommend Tim and France Custom Tours.
