We just returned from our 10 day European trip. By far the most incredible and moving experience was the day we spent with Bertrand as he guided us through the history of the D-Day invasion. He took particular care in taking us to a spot where my uncle, a member of the 82nd airborne, participated in the defence of the... More

Bertrand is excellent. He is very knowledgable of the subject and so well prepared. He is obviously an ongoing student of the entire D-Day ( and WW2) story. He is very responsive both when you are with him as well as in communicating prior to your tour. He is also a very nice fellow! We could not have been more... More

Wow, what a day. Bertrand exceeded our lofty expectations. The experience was top notch from the initial communication all the way through the end. Such a knowledgeable and engaging person. I can't imagine a better experience. In addition to the typical sites, Bertrand took us to the German cemetery and airborne museums. . both of which I would have never... More

We found Bertrand in a round about way while looking for a Normandy guide and had little idea how lucky we were until we arrived for our tour! From the beginning Bertrand was prompt with communication, helpful in planning and making arrangements, and took our individual needs into consideration. His knowledge - as others have said - was not only... More

My husband and I booked a private, full-day tour with Bertrand and could not be happier with the experience we had. Bertrand was incredibly knowledgeable -- not just about D-Day, but also about Normandy, world history, and every other random topics that came up throughout the day. He was extremely engaging and personable and made the nine hours that we... More

We just spent a couple days in Normandy and our tour with Bertrand was the best part of the trip. His knowledge of the sites was amazing. We already had the major site locations planned, so we asked him to take us to his highlights. This is definitely the way to do it. Worth every penny.

I have been interested in the events of D Day most of my life so finally getting to actually see the area was a bucket list item for me. Bertrand brought that experience to life as he lead us through the areas of the battle both physically and the politics that shaped the war. The 3 other people in our... More

Bertrand, our guide from Executive D-Day Private Tours, was an excellent historian and made D-Day come alive. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the Allied invasion. His commentary and materials complimented our visits to various sites. Bertrand is engaging, welcomes questions, and has a gift for the private tour experience. Linda C., USA

We were expecting an educational overview of D-day. I was nervous about bringing our 3 kids along for such a long day. Bertrand arrived right on schedule at our hotel and picked us up to start the day. We didn't just get an educational overview, we got a rewarding experience with in depth information about D-day. He was patient with... More

We spent more than 9 hours with Bertrand on a tour of the D-day Normandy area sites. His knowledge and communication skills kept us and our two teenage grandsons (ages 13 and 15) engaged and learning so much. He took us down back roads to avoid crowds and we were able to see so many sites including St. Mere Eglise,... More
