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...

Mathias LeClere proved himself to be the best D-Day guide we could possibly have found. From the moment he collected us from Caen station to the moment he dropped us back he was friendly, courteous and above all highly knowledgeable. We were a mixed bunch: Grandparents, parents and teenagers but at the end we all proclaimed ourselves totally satisfied with... More

Mathias Leclere provided a most enjoyable 3 day tour of WW2 sites through northern Normandy, customizing the itinerary for us to make some family veteran site connections. His detailed knowledge combined with entertaining style made the time go too quickly. A 4th day also with him focused on Bayeaux / Norman history / St Michel gave us so much more... More

Engaging and passionate, with encyclopedic knowledge of Operation Overlord, its build up and its aftermath, Mathias LECLERE is the perfect guide. If any fairy godmother were asked to produce the perfect guide, she would present Mathias. If a perfect guide for a DDay tour were on one’s Christmas list, Mathias would be Father Christmas’ first choice. Having hired guides world-wide,... More

Our guide is energetic and has lost of information to share. even down to the precise minutes of the landing and showing the whole battle with many pictures and maps, even point out the spot ans showing up the situation back then. that was awesome

My daughter and I were fortunate enough to have made a good choice when we booked with Mathias. We took a full day tour of the beaches and another full day tour to see the abbey. Mathias has invested in a very confortable new van for his guests. He has deep knowledge of the events of D Day and a... More

Our family of five (ranging in age from 18 to 62) toured Normandy with Mathias for a day in early April 2014. We were very much looking forward to the trip, and are all in agreement that the day far surpassed our expectations. Mathias was incredibly responsive prior to our trip and answered all of our questions thoroughly and expediently.... More
