This tour was everything we hoped for and more. Stuart did a great job in explaining what was happening and pointed out many things we would not have seen on our own such as the location of pillboxes and machine nests. He knew the answer to every question we asked. He was patient and fun to be with. I only... More

My wife and I, along with two other couples, recently spent three weeks in Italy and France, and wrapped up our trip in Normandy. The experience couldn't have been better. We were met at the train station by Stuart's wife, Jenny, and escorted to the Museum in Caen where we spent the balance of the day. We then went to... More

We encourage you to take a Normandy tour with Stuart Robinson . My husband found Stuart's website several months ago while planning our itinerary for a trip to France. Normandy had been on our bucket list of places to see and we were looking for that special someone to guide us through this historic area. Stuart proved to be that... More

We strongly recommend a guided tour of Normandy with Mr. Robertson. He is very knowledgeable about the Normandy invasion and subsequent battle for Normandy. As part of the package, you will stay in the Robertson's quaint farm house which has been converted into a spacious, charming, comfortable bed and breakfast located in the Normandy countryside. Stuart's wife, Jenny, will arrange... More

My husband and I made a day trip from Paris on September 17th and were met at the local train station by Stuart Robinson for our 1-day Normandy/D-Day tour. We were completely satisfied with our tour and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and personable private guide. Stuart has great depth of knowledge on the area... More

Our tour group had the opportunity to spend 2-days with Stuart Robinson to explore and learn more about the battles of Normandy. Stuart aims to please and could not have been more knowledgeable with the facts of the area. His story telling was top notch! This experience was a highlight of our trip to France.....Highly Recommended!

Our family of four, which included two children ages seven and ten took a one-day D-Day tour with Stuart during our trip to France. The three of us enjoyed the experience (while the seven year old was more along for the ride). This had nothing to do with Stuart, of course, but seven-year-old girls aren’t that interested in D-Day. Stuart... More

Stuart and his wife Jenny were excellent hosts for our three day tour of the Normandy area. We spent 2 days in the American sector and our final day in the Commonwealth sector. As I was not as familiar with the Commonwealth sector, Stuart did a great job of showing and explaining the D-Day events there. Stuart took us to... More

Like the reviews before, Stuart Robertson did a wonderful job guiding our group of 5 (Two older teens and 3 adults) on a one day tour of the Normandy highlights. He works hard to bring the moments to life with an emotional accord that goes well beyond the wealth of facts. Stuart is an author on the D-Day subject and... More

We recently completed a 2 day tour with Stuart, spending one day in the American sector and a day in the Commonwealth sector. Our group of 7 included family members from 15 - 80 years of age and I think each of us would say it was the highlight of our trip. Stuart's depth of knowledge and his lifetime commitment... More
