I participated with the World War II Museum in New Orleans, LA, USA on a guided tour of the Normandy beaches, D Day breakout, and push to Paris battlefields in September, 2014. Mathias was our tour guide for the 6 day tour of these incredible sites. He was OUTSTANDING: very knowledgeable on D Day history facts, patiently answered all our... More

I highly recommend Mathias as a tour guide. My husband and I, along with 2 very good friends feel we were so very lucky to have found Mathias and booked a day with him to see the American D-Day beaches and cemetery, He picked us up from the Caen ferry port. He was very prompt. His transportation was comfortable and... More

My husband and I, along with our adult son, took a tour with Mathias last week. We all agreed that we were so glad we had Mathias as our guide to the D Day beaches. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about this area. There was no question he could not answer. It added to our experience that he was... More

I booked Mathias back in June for our September trip to Paris with my wife and 3 other traveling companions. It was one of the best days of our 3 weeks in France and Spain. We were met by Mathias at the Bayeux train depot and given a quick tour of Bayeux since we were staying for dinner before our... More

Four of us hired Mathias to take us to as much as we could visit in one day from our cruise ship in Le Havre. We had a great experience. Two of us had been there previously, but Mathias provided background and depth well beyond what we gleaned on our own. In addition to the usual visits to Pont du... More

Mathias was a wonderful guide. Very personable and knowledgeable, he really tuned into our two boys aged 10 & 12 and highlighted sights and information that would take their interest too. We travelled by train from Paris and Mathias picked us up from the train in Caen & at the end o.f the tour day he dropped us to our... More

I can't think of a more knowledgeable historian than Mathias Leclere! I had hired Mathias over the Internet - he was recommended by Rick Steves. It was our luck that we got him out of the 10 inquires I posted.The depth of his knowledge about D Day and all the historical periods was just incredible. He was fun and easy... More

Mathias LeClere is the real deal. I could repeat every thing said below, but don't need to, as the previous posters are spot on! We toured the American sector on June 3, while the area was being prepared for the 70th anniversary. I couldn't imagine being in Normandy at any other time or with any other guide! I am familiar...
