Bertrand gives a highly informative, thoroughly professional tour. He is well prepared, knows his history cold, and brings great enthusiasm. He picked us up at our hotel as scheduled, and had us back in time for our train at day's end. We focused our day on the American sector, and it took all our allotted 8 hours: St Marie Eglise,...

We were referred to Bertrand and after the tour could not have been happier. He provided us a wealth of information we were not aware of previously. He made sure we were not rushed but we managed to get in 3 of the D-Day invasion beaches and Ste. Mère Église where American paratrooper John Steele was caught by the church... More

We had a fantastic time on our one day D-Day tour with Bertrand. The hospitality was wonderful as we were met at the Bayeax train station in the morning. Our day was planned so we could see the sites that were important to us plus some extras. Bertrand was very knowledgeable of the area and the history of the landings... More

We were referred to Bertrand via a Travel Agent friend of ours. He was wonderful! He had tremendous knowledge of D-Day as well as the events leading up to it. He also surprised us with his overall knowledge of American history as well as French and European. We had a wonderful day with him and he also dialed in beautiful... More

We had been planning a visit to Normandy and the D-Day sites since we got married three years ago. My husband and I are not really organized-tour people, but we also knew we didn't want to miss out on any information for these special sites. We found Bertrand on Trip Advisor, and having him as our tour guide was one... More

Bertrand was a great guide. So knowledgeable and excited to tell you about history. My husband and I learned so much in just one day. Truly appreciate the time he took with us. I'm sure he was unimpressed with our lack of history knowledge but he never showed it. Very helpful, educational and personable. You will not be disappointed. Highly... More

Spent a great day visiting the US D-Day battle sites with Bertrand. Bertrand is very personable and knowledgeable about the history of the battles and his easy going manner put us at ease immediately. We did not realize the distances between the respective beaches, cemeteries and museums and would have wasted enormous amount of time trying to navigate and schedule... More

Bertrand was our guide/host/friend for an amazing 9 1/2 hours. He truly makes history come alive and engages you in the telling of D-Day history with lively conversation and questions on your historical knowledge. His recommendation to view The Longest Day before our visit proved invaluable as he was able to explain what we saw in the film in the... More

Wow, what a great day. We saw more in a day that we could have ever seen on our own. He knew just where to go and kept us rolling along. Very knowledgeable and personable - couldn't have asked for a better guide. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Bertrand was fantastic and is obviously passionate about many aspects of the area's history. His tour is fast-paced, but he always made time to answer our questions and crack a few jokes along the way. Had a great time and would recommend his tour to anyone interested in touring the D Day beaches.
