Eric is, simply put, an excellent guide. His vast knowledge, ongoing research, and obvious passion for sharing his expertise makes this tour an exceptional experience. My husband and I ended the tour with a fulsome and powerful understanding of the events that took place on D-Day. Had we taken a more "pre-scripted", less interactive tour, or simply explored the beaches... More

My wife and I spent a full day with Eric. His knowledge and enthusiasm of the area and D-Day events made the day so much more enjoyable and informative than we imagined. His use of supporting documentation such as maps, photos and de-classified plans from both German and Allied archives added tremendously to the narrative that he provided. For a... More

Eric was a knowledgeable and personable guide with an obvious passion for his work. Without him we would have wandered and bumbled our way through the countryside, probably missing both landmarks and much historical information. It was worth every cent. Thank you, Eric.

My wife and I spent a day and a half with Eric in the American sector. This is a thinking man's tour, and a tour well suited to the visitor with a serious interest in the subject. Eric is self-made; he had a passionate interest in the Normandy campaign, moved to Normandy, and spent years walking the ground, reading everything... More

Our group of four was privileged to share a day touring D-Day sites with Eric, a most personable, enthusiastic, and clearly expert guide to the places, people, strategies, challenges, and outcomes (good and bad) of the Normandy invasion. He knew names, units, numbers, timelines, and maneuvers in impressive detail, but this tour was not a dry, canned recitation. He enthusiastically... More
