Mathias is an EXCELLENT guide. His depth of knowledge ond willingness to dive deeper into detail helped make our experience unforgettable. His mastery of English didn't hurt either! His personal ties to the region and his family history growing up in the area made the connection that much stronger. Made us wish the trip could have lasted another week. Thanks... More

Mathias is an incredibly knowledgable, diligent guide. He knows his subject thoroughly; not only the WW II sites, but also the cultural. It was a pleasure to spend three days with him and we recommend him without hesitation.

The only way to experience Normandy is with Mathias, who makes you fully appreciate the enormity of that chapter of WWII history. A month later and are still talking about our day long tour and all we learned under his expert guidance. We arrived early morning by car from Paris and transferred to Mathias' spacious van, which comfortably sat all... More

Mathias made our trip to Normandy by giving the most fantastic tour. My father has always been a world war history buff, so when he and my mother had the chance to come over to visit me in France, I knew we needed to find a special tour for him. Mathias was our guy. He asked me weeks in advance... More

Mathis was so very knowledge and passionate about the Allied Liberation of Europe. Because of Mathis tour, we learned so very much about DDay and the resistance of French people. He pushed my husband in a wheelchair to the monuments at Utah and Omaha beach. When the wheelchairs were being used at the American Cemetary, somehow, he talked a staff... More

I have spent a lifetime reading about the invasion and even teaching about it at the Community College level. I understand the strategic issues but I was amazed at how much I learned at the tactical level after spending two days with Mathias! He speaks wonderful English with an enchanting French accent (MASH'-ing guns) and his knowledge of the people... More

Before our trip to Normandy we researched Tours and Guides on Trip Advisor and would like to thank those people who wrote in about Mathias. (contact@ddayguidedtours.com) He lived up to all our expectations and beyond. This was our second time to visit the beaches and by far the better of the two because of Mathias our super guide. We were... More

First of all and probably most important Mathias is a great communicator with in-depth knowledge of DDay actions by the allies. He brought our family into the history and we will never forget the day. If you are planning a trip to Paris or this part of northern France start communicating with him today, you will not be sorry.

Started with good communication with Mathias via email leading up to our visit. He met us at the station in Caen for a 7 hr tour. His vehicle was clean and comfortable. From the moment we got in, our history lesson began in Excellent English. Mathias was a wealth of information. We visited a German cemetery, Point du Hoc, Omaha... More
