Eric took my family of four out for a full day tour of the American Sector, the area that interested us most. 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. Eric is extremely knowledgeable and has a great passion... More

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

I booked the two day American Zone tour with Mr. Le Doux-Turnbull for the 12th and 13th of June 2014. The area was still quite busy with people visiting Normandy for the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Mr. Le Doux-Turnbull worked around the crowd and provided a memorable experience for my wife, my grandson and myself. Visits to the major locations,... More

We spent a very enjoyable and informative day with Eric as our guide. we toured the Canadian sector, focused on Juno Beach. Eric is a very knowledgable and personal guide and I would highly recommend him for whatever portion of the Battle of Normandy you want to discover.

Four of us from the US took a 1-day American tour with Eric just one week before the D-day anniversary and it was the highlight of our trip. Until you actually do a tour of battle grounds in Normandy, it is hard to understand just how powerful, educational, and utterly enjoyable the experience is for young and old. The quality... More
