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

ERIC -- DDAYLANDING TOURS: Eric served as guide for our family group of five adults visiting the Normandy Beaches and St Lo in August. Our trip was to visit where my wife's father landed on Omaha Beach, June 6, 1944, as part of the US 29th Division (115 Infantry). He was severely wounded in St Lo on July 18. We... More

My wife and I did a D-Day tour of the American Sector with Eric in July. Eric had an encyclopedic knowledge of the subject and made the tour exciting and meaningful. He is professional, well-prepared and a great guide. I would recommend him.

I took my two Grandsons (16 and 13) to 'do' the Normandy landings and look at the Falaise Gap. We spent 5 days with Eric and had a brilliant time. Very comprehensive overview and explanations, we were able to follow my Uncles landing and subsequent death in detail. We also looked at the Royal Marines role as the boys father... More

This is a tour for those who are interested in more than just scratching the surface of D-Day history. Eric arrives at your hotel on time, in a clean van, armed with historic photos, maps and a head full of information covering everything you need to know---and plenty you would not have known were it not for this one-on-one, questions-welcomed...

Just let him know a little about yourself and he will design a great tour that will enable you to learn about the areas in which you are interested.

Our tour of Omaha Beach, the American Cemetery and surrounding area was done with a private guide who showed us a great deal in two hours. Being there just after the 70th anniversary celebration was certainly memorable.

We made a booking for a tour with Eric as part of our holiday but only as afterthought. Consequently, we were not in the easiest location to undertake a tour of this nature but thanks to Eric's planning and enthusiasm the logistics were easily overcome. Our party comprised myself and wife, elderly father and teenage son. We all thoroughly enjoyed... More

As soon as we decided to take our son and his family to visit Normandy I started to look for a personal guide for a one day tour. My husband and I had been to Normandy twice already and have visited many of the museums and battlefields. We felt that our grandsons at ages 12, 10 & 10 would benefit... More
