When I was planning a trip to Normandy including the Landing Beaches, I knew that we would need a guide to both drive us and help us understand what happened there. I was particularly interested in the French perspective on the Battle of Normandy, having read many histories of this event from the British and American perspective. When Mathias answered... More

The reason every one of these reviews is a 5 is that Mathias is truly an exceptional guide. He gave our family a full day tour with a pickup in Bayeux and a drop off at the ferry in Cherbourg which allowed us to travel by train from Paris and not have to rent a car in France. He organized... More

Mathias is not only a very knowledgeable and personable guide, he goes out of his way to tailor your tour to your personal interests. We had a group of 6 and Mathias guided us for one day of the U.S. DDay invasion sites and then one day down to Mont St Michel from Bayeux. His depth of knowledge is outstanding... More

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
