Like the title, Dale made the Normandy Beaches come alive live. I have read and viewed on TV many books and shows about D Day but he provided information I have never heard or read. His descriptions at the Utah and Omaha beaches on June 6th sets the scene so you are able to experience, understand and visualize what our... More

Recently my wife and I spent two days on a private tour with Dale focused on the American portion of the D Day invasion. The experience was outstanding in all respects! It is obvious that Dale has a passion for the war, the D Day invasion, the Normandy geography, the military strategies that unfolded and, remarkably, the the individuals that... More

We did a day tour with Dale with another couple and were fascinated with all Dale knew about D-Day and we packed in a full day! We highly recommend Dale as a tour guide and also his book about WW II.

We were four friends travelling to Bayeux for the weekend specifically to see and learn about the D-Day beaches/landings. We could not have picked a better teacher. On first meeting Dale, we knew we would not be disappointed - he was friendly and having explained something of his background (he had served in Ireland in the British Army and had... More

In April, first took the British sector tour with another guide, who was good, but Dale Booth's American sector tour was superb. He explained the action very succinctly with a rare combination of encyclopedic knowledge and a flair for the dramatic. We have recommended him highly to others. Can't imagine a better guide.

My Christmas gift to my husband last year was a personal tour of Normandy with Dale. It was the highlight of our holiday in France. He is all those things others have used to describe him: professional, knowledgeable, passionate and excited about his work. As a former Army officer, he also brings added insight into his presentations, salting them with... More

We had the good fortune to spend VE Day with Dale on the shores of Normandy this past May. We were in Paris to celebrate a 50th birthday, our day with Dale was the one adventure outside of Paris. We met Dale in the pelting rain at Ste. Mere Eglise. He was at the ready with umbrella's and a sunny... More

I highly recommend Dale. Not only is he extremely knowledgable but he will taylor your experience to your special interests. His is not a one size fits all approach.. Rather, you let him know what you want to see, he makes suggestions, and then you decide based on time limitations. Dale is extremely pleasant and his vehicle is comfortable. And... More

The tour we experienced with Dale of the American D-Day beaches was nothing short of fabulous. Dale was extremely knowledgeable and a passionate story teller. He took us back in time to June 6th, 1944 with his pictures and his stories. I highly recommend him! Be sure to book early, we booked our tour almost a year in advance.
