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.

I scheduled Bertrand for a private tour for myself and 3 backpacking friends on March 27. He picked us up in Bayeux at our Hotel (he was right on time, even ahead of schedule). He was friendly, courteous, funny and knowledgeable in every way. We got to see more locations, learn some local culture and lore, and spent 9 hours... More

Our day started out perfectly! Bertrand was waiting for us when our train arrived from Paris and immediately whisked us to a local bakery so we could pick up lunch before beginning a most spectacular tour of Normandy. Bertrand was knowledgeable and remained unbiased throughout our time with him. We were both moved and humbled by the history and sites... More

We contacted Executive D-Day Tours for a private tour. Unfortunately, they were fully booked. However, they recommended another tour operator. I was impressed with the quick response and their effort to direct us to someone that could help us.

Our one day tour of the D Day sites in Normandy with Bertrand was truly the highlight of our 10 day trip through Berlin, Normandy and Paris. Bertrand's knowledge and attention to detail were incredible. His enthusiasm was infectious. Our tour included Bayeux, the German cemetery, Saint Mare-Eglise, Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery, and... More

When my Fiance and I were planning our trip to Paris, we contemplated a side trip to the D-Day sites but were hesitant as to whether we should book a guide. Being off season, many of the major group tours had been well booked in advanced. A private tour was coming out to be beyond our budget and we figured... More

My husband, an avid reader of D-Day and World War II, is till talking about how much he learned from Bertrand. He is a "walking encyclopedia" of that momentous day. He knows everything about battle plans, names of generals, what happened at each strategic location that day. Bertrand has a strong French accent but impeccable English. We first stopped at... More
