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

We took our family of 5 on a trip with Eric in August. Eric has an incredible knowledge of the various battles and beaches of Normandy. We spent the day visiting sites and learning a lot about the how, why and who were involved in the battles. We came away with great respect for Eric's passion and attention to detail.... 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 spent a fascinating day with Eric in August. We visited Saint Mere Eglise, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. Eric's vast knowledge of the landing sites, battlefields, troop movements, and important personalities was impressive - we came away understanding much more about this important part of our history than we thought possible after a...

Wonderful tour provided by Eric for myself and my daughter (22) and son (18). This trip was part of a promise I made to my son many years ago--upon highschool graduation to go tour the beaches of Normandy. Eric was a fantastic guide found through TripAdvisor and by word of mouth and we truly enjoyed our day spent in his... 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

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...
