We had high expectations for our all-day D-Day tour and they were more than exceeded. Bertrand’s knowledge of D-Day history was terrific; as well he was very personable, patient and just fun to be with. We were able to visit every location that we wanted to see. This included the Bayeux War Cemetery, German Cemetery, Musee Airborne, US Cemetery, Saint-Mere-Eglise,... More

Our trip to France was made complete with a half day tour of D-Day sites with Bertrand as our guide. He met us at our hotel promptly, and took us to see many of the sites of interest to Americans, as well as several others of general interest. The time passed quickly, and he was very thorough in exploring locations... More

Our family met Bertrand at our hotel in Bayeux at 9:00 for a full D-Day tour. In our correspondence before arriving in France, Bertrand recommended watching the movie "The Longest Day" and we visited many sights that were in the movie. We saw an incredible number of places and Bertrand's knowledge of WWII history is outstanding. He has notebooks of... More

We arrived at the Museum in Bayeux at 8:59 and Bertrand was waiting for us. Bertrand explained every aspect of D Day including the natural terrain of Normandy. Bertrand is on of the most knowledgeable guides I have found anywhere in the world. He gives the perspective from all sides, including explaining the dilemma the French citizens faced. We saw...

We have utilized numerous tour guides and we found Bertrand's tour one of the most enjoyable, professional and informative. Our train to Bayeux was about 30 minutes late and he was there waiting for us with a sign. We took the morning train from Paris to Caen and then Bayeux. And we were off - We visited several areas throughout... More

I have used numerous private guides throughout Europe and Asia. Bertran was by far the most knowledgeable any guide I have ever used. Not only did he show us the normal places and tell us the typical stories, but he was able to point out the nuances and tell a special stories about each and every place we visited. He... More

Bertrand was kind enough to meet us at the train station and recommend a quick lunch spot. He is astonishingly knowledgable and was very attentive to our teenage son. In about 5 hours we were able to see the German cemetery, the American cemetery, Omaha beach, Pont du hoc, and the beautiful Norman countryside. Bertrand clearly has a passion for... More

We have traveled a great deal and we have used private guides in many of the places that we have been. Sometimes it is really the only way to understand what you are looking at. It is so rare that you find somebody that really is informative and that you like a lot apart from the "guide thing". We would... More
