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. Eric possesses a nearly endless supply of facts and anecdotes which he shares with intense energy and... More

I managed to cram a half day with Eric in around business commitments and we focused on Ponte de hoc and Omaha beach. Eric is encyclopedic in his knowledge and passionate about D Day. I thought I knew a fair bit about D Day but I learned something new every 5 mins. Eric was fun and entertaining company and I... More

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

Eric provided a one-day American Sector tour in July for my family of four. Eric has so much information to share and tailors it to the varying level of knowledge within your group. He also interjects a fun sense of humor into the day. Our day started out on a high note when I mentioned that our family had visited... More

My husband and I thought that since we are traveling to France we need to take a day to visit the DDay. Before arriving we only knew the "basics" of this subject, we had no family ties back to the site, we just knew that this is a part of history we needed to know more about. Eric did a... More
