No question, the Longest Day is an excellent film, but it focuses on only a small area. The Brits and Canadians and the US all had very different terrain and objectives!

Six of us had an outstanding half day tour with Eric. He was so animated, humorous and knowledgeable. Eric really brought the D-Day events to life. I would definitely recommend this tour and especially Eric!

Outstanding day-tour by Erix Le Doux-Turnbull. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and helpful. Exceeded our expectations and would definitely recommend him. We will likely tour the British and Canadian beaches next time with Eric's guidance. He has a military historian's approach to his tour, and really brings those events alive.

Eric provided my parents and I with a fascinating tour of Normandy, focusing on the American sections of the invasion. We found him incredibly knowledgeable, well prepared, and flexible as to the agenda. It was an educational and fun day, and ended at the American cemetery with the lowering of the flag & playing of taps. A special day thanks... More

My father survived Utah Beach and carried on with the 4th Infantry but ultimately the war took its toll and he passed away when we were little children.

On May 7th we had a full day tour with Eric. It was fantastic. We learned a ton about the invasion, not just the facts from movie and news reels. Eric knows his stuff and will bring the D-Day invasions alive for you. I highly recommend using his service.

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

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.
