We decided our major splurge on our trip to France would be the full day with Bertrand in Normandy. It was the best decision we could have made. Bertrand knew more history than we could ever begin to learn and showed us how much we have to be grateful for and proud of as Americans. He was exquisitely detailed and... More

Bertrand lived up to all the great reviews. He picked us up promptly and spent a day with us sharing his passion for WWII history. Although my husband is a WWII history buff, Bertrand managed to go well beyond the standard information and included little known facts, details and photos that made the tour special and extremely memorable. He was... More

I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said here, but I wanted to add my review to assure anyone considering booking that it is well worth it and all the rave reviews are correct. He is a kind, intelligent soul who is clearly living out his passion. The day is thoughtfully planned, full of information and... More

Bertrand was our tour guide for a full day D-Day tour. There were four people in our group. It was a day to remember. Besides being an expert on the history of the area and the details of the invasion, Bertrand was an extremely nice guy with a sense of humor and an engaging personality. Our tour never felt rushed...

Excellent!! Bertrand was so well versed on many aspects of our D-Day tour that he totally blew our minds. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. My husband and I visited the beaches on the 50th celebration twenty years ago and coming back to have a private tour made it worthwhile. Our friends with us were just as appreciative... More

We and another couple with whom we were traveling had the pleasure of having a full day tour with him (9 am - 6 pm). He is fun to be with, very knowledgeable of the history leading... More

My wife and I and our friends used Bertrand for a day's tour of the Normandy sites. He had come well recommended and far exceeded our expectations. He prepared us in advance by recommending a book for us to read and movies to watch. He tailored the tour to our needs & worked very hard on our behalf. He carefully... More

We initially signed up for a half-day tour, but found Bertrand so informative, that we asked him to continue for the rest of the day. He did not disappoint. Bertrand told us about how DeGaulle was involved (or not involved) in the D-Day invasion. We visited the German cemetery, and noticed how stark it is, in comparison to the American... More

Bertrand packs five years of information into a nine hour tour! He is enthusiastic and very knowledgeable while giving you perspectives of the war's events that may not have occurred to you previously. You see the hedgerow fighting areas, the bunkers, the bomb craters and bunkers. You walk the beaches where our men died. The final stop was the American... More
