What I love about Florian is that he is clearly passionate about history, but he is also professionally objective in his recounting of the facts and events surrounding the invasion of Normandy. He answered all our questions thoughtfully and with care, and speaks from a well of knowledge that you can tell is very deep. Our tour was everything I... More

Your knowledge of the historical events and sights we visited was beyond anything we expected and your knowledge of that period of history was truely impressive. I especially appreciated your use of pictures, maps and diagrams to make... More

We took a half-day tour of the American sights in Nov 2014 and saw the German bunkers, American Cemetery, Omaha Beach, and the mulberries. Florin's knowledge is immense and it is clear he has a passion for the subject. We learned more than we imagined and he shared information as we traveled with some very well done visual aids. He...

We took an all day tour with Florin on 12 October, 2014.. We are in awe of Florin's knowledge and expertise of the history of the events of D-day, before and after. His tour exceeded our expectations by far. His passion, presentation, and personality, made the tour a very memorable occasion we will never forget. His preparation is precise and... More

We sailed on the Brilliance of the Seas last month and had a scheduled stop at LeHavre. Prior to the trip we oganized a private tour of the Canadian sector with Florin for ourselves and another couple from Canada. Throughout that process Florin was very responsive to our e-mails and anxious to customize the tour to accomodate our particular needs.... More

Florin provided an excellent, in-depth account of D-day. He enhanced his presentation with maps and photos which helped us visualize that historic day. Not only is Florin extremely knowledgeable, he is very personable. He tailored the tour to suite our interests and provided us with a memorable day. We highly recommend him.

We were so lucky to have been able to connect with other Canadians that were interested in visiting Normandy on Sept 1, 2014. They had done the research and located Florin at Spearhead Tours and had put together an extremely wonderful tour of Juno Beach, The Juno Beach War Museum, and the other beaches where Canadian Troops landed. Florin picked... More

We lucked out and were able to book Florin on fairly short notice. I am so glad we found him! There are tours upon tours and I wanted to originally land one that came highly recommended by my favorite EU guide (Rick Steves), but everyone was booked! I found Spearhead Tours via Tripadvisor, my other highly depended upon resource and... More

We did the full day Neptune A tour with Florin in June 2014. He picked up our group of six at our B&B near St. Mere Eglise and was early and waiting for us. We had asked if he could include Arromanches even though it is normally not part of this tour and he said "no problem". Being a history... More

Florin made history come alive for every member of my family (young to old). We toured for two days Neptune "A" and Mont St. Michel. This was the best money spent. We learned more in our two days than ever. Take his tours, you won't be sorry. The days flew by.
