Mathias was so knowledgeable and seemed very passionate about sharing his knowledge with us. Visiting the sites on the Sainte Mere Eglise and American beaches and cememtery even driving through the country side was filled with... More

Our tour with Mathias was fantastic! After emailing back and forth several times in the weeks before our trip to Europe to discuss the areas in Normandy my son and I wanted to see, Mathias did a great job of customizing our tour. We saw some of the more popular sites, and so that we could follow in the steps... More

For over a year I planned this trip to Normandy to give thanks and to pay my respects to those who so courageously served, and in September 2014 I got much more than I bargained. Mathias, who is French (but with an accent that is very easy to fully understand), turned out to make this highly anticipated trip a pure... More

Mathias picked us up early at our B&B in nearby Formigny for a full day tour emphasizing the American sectors. Despite a driving rain (he even had an extra hat for my wife who didn't quite dress weather appropriate), the day did not disappoint. His family has been in the area for several generations and his passion for all historical... More

Our guided tour with Mathias of St Mere Eglise and the American D-Day beaches exceeded our expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable about the events and the US soldiers involvement during this important invasion. He took us also to several unique places involving incidents that occurred during D-Day that we did not know about before our visit and were quite happy... More

Mathias guided my wife and I on two separate tours, one on the D-Day beaches and one at Mont Saint-Michel. We relied heavily on the 100% Excellent reviews on Trip Advisor in selecting him and were certainly not disappointed - they are well-earned. His enthusiasm for history and the significance of the sites he covers is immediately apparent and his... More

He was very prompt. His transportation was comfortable and... More
