This is the way to visit the Normandy battlefields. Tim Smith of John Brommage tours picked us up at our hotel in Caen. We focased on the American battlefields of Utah and Omaha. He knew the history of all of the companies. We focased on the 101st and saw dozens of the places the band of brothers were in and... More

We had the privilege of spending two days touring the major WWII sites in Normandy with Tim Smith. Tim is extremely knowledgable and also a great listener. Through conversations and questions, he understood how best to customize our tour to address what we (two couples) were interested in. One of the men in our group was from the 82nd Airborne... More

It was a wonderful way to be able to see WWII history in one very long day. We left the Paris St Lazare rail station about 7 am and returned about 10 pm. The rail trip takes you out of the city to see the other side of France, the beautiful countryside. We were met by the tour guide and... More

John Bromage is the perfect host and a very knowledgeable guide. He picked us up at the Caen train station at 9:45 (the train was late) and instantly started the tour. We did the famous Pegasus bridge, as well as the 30 miles of beaches, including Utah and Omaha, Pointe du Hoc, as well as several museums. We reached the... More

Our small group of six was treated to a wonderful day with Tim Smith of France Custom Tours. Tim picked us up at our ship in Le Havre and spent the entire day touring with us. We saw the Normandy beaches, German bunkers, the American cemetery, the museum, and small villages. Our visit to the American cemetery was timed to... More

We just returned from spending six days touring Normandy with John Bromage from France Custom Tours and it exceeded our expectations in every way possible. John was a pleasure to spend time with and by the second day we felt like we were traveling with a friend! John is extremely knowledgable, fun, relaxed, organized and the week went off without...

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

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...
