My father passed away last year. After listening to his stories of landing on Omaha Beach and subsequent experiences during World War II, I had to go there and see for myself what it must have been like for him. I met Mathias in Caen, and for the next 7 hours, he took me to Omaha Beach and to several... More

Mathias drove to Bayeux and met us at our hotel. I was worried at first if he would turn up as he did not take a deposit from us after confirming our booking. We were coming from Rouen and booked him for a half day tour at 2pm. Well, he came as promised. If we had our own transport, the... More

If you are coming to Normandy book a guided tour with Mathias, it will be the best tour you will ever experience . Even though we are Australian and dont have any direct lick with the D Day landing, we wanted for our teenage boys to see and experience the sacrifice made in Normandy by our allies. Mathias gave a... More

An out-standing guide with a knowledgeable perspective of D-Day. Our day long tour was excellent. We went to places important to our family as well as the more well known points on the D-Day. Mathais has a terrific grasp of the situation and the events of D-Day. He recognizes the importance of the day and the weeks and months that... More

EDUCATION: We spent a day with Mathias Leclere touring the D-Day landings and ending with the US Cemetery. Like the other reviews have stated, Mathias is a master. It was like taking a crash course in European history. Mr. Leclere instructed us in historical context (what led up to the war), vivid statistics (how much weight did a citizen lose... More

We spent two days with Mathias touring Normandy, Rouen and Giverny. He is so well informed about the places we visited that whatever question we threw at him, he could answer. It was like being on a field trip with a Master Guide! We learned so much and history came alive! What a difference he made in our trip instead... More

We enjoyed our day with Mathias touring the Normandy Beach area. Mathias is friendly, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area and its history. His roots in this area go back several generations. It is obvious that Mathias loves what he does and he was able to answer any questions that we had. You will also enjoy the... More

I went on a tour of Normandy D-Day Beaches and American Cemetery. Terry was our guide and we met at the train station in Caen. He took us to the museum and walked us through the exhibit room. He was very informative and quit Knowledgeable. I truly enjoyed myself. It was a lot more than I could truly hope for.... More

I'm not sure there is much I can add to the already excellent reviews posted here, except to agree with them. We spent a long day with Mathias in early October primarily touring the area of Omaha and Utah beaches and the surrounding sights of importance. I can only say our expectations were exceeded. By virtue of having grown up... More

We had been planning a trip to France for over a year with a major goal being spending time in Normandy. We decided that having a personal guide would make the experience that much more meaningful and rewarding -- we were so right. We found Mathias Leclere through Rick Steves' Guidebook on France and booked him for a one day... More
