Eric provided me, my wife, and niece an outstanding and informative tour of the Omaha and Utah beaches. I have worked for the US Army for over forty years and read extensively about WW II. Eric provided me many tidbits that I hadn't know. My wife, who had been educated in Europe, had little understanding of the D-Day events. Eric's... More

In October, our family of 8 adults (including my 82 year old father and 78 year old uncle) experienced a full day-long tour with Eric Le Doux-Turnbull, of Normandy Landing Tours. As Americans, we were interested in mainly the American sector, as 3 of my father's brothers served during WW 2. Eric was a wonderful guide and was especially good... More

This past October Eric Le Doux-Turnbull, of Normandy Landing Tours, gave my family a taste of what the war was like for my father, Harry, who served with the 4th Infantry Division as a combat engineer during WWII. Having studied my dad's war memoirs, Eric, led us on a path that followed Harry's footsteps from Utah Beach to the St.... More

We spent a full day with Eric on October 30th along with another couple traveling with us. Like so many we had read a great deal before coming but Eric's knowledge added so much when visiting the actual sights on the American Tour. Eric has his own opinions but his knowledge is remarkable. He was flexible but made sure we... More

We visited Normandy in October and spent a full day with Eric doing the American highlights tour. Eric went out of his way to pick us up and drop us off at the B&B where we were staying, and filled our day with insights and information that brought history to life.

I agree 100% with other reviewers, a tour through the Normandy beaches and countryside with Eric Turnbull is a fascinating experience that will forever enhance your understanding and appreciation for the efforts and sacrifices made here in the spring and summer of 1944.

This review is for the American Sector Tour. I don't need to repeat what other reviewers have said. Eric's encyclopedic knowledge of every inch of D-Day geography and every minute of D-Day itself is very impressive and sometimes overwhelming. But if you want to truly learn how geography, logistics, defense, strategy, and courage played their roles on that fateful day,... More

Absolutely exceptional......and I do not grade "easy". Our tour with Eric lasted 9 and 1/2 hours over a single day. It was a private tour involving my wife, me and Eric. Concentration, per our request, was placed on the American sites (Omaha, Utah, Pointe du hoc and the cemetery). At each site Eric reviewed first the"plan" of Overlord for that... More
