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

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....
