We had a day long tour with Ellwood von Siebold in early June 2014, as part of our commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Dday. We were a group of 4 Americans, traveling to honor the memory of one our fathers who landed on Utah Beach on Dday. Having the right tour was very important to us and I did... More

What an incredible experience. Moving is the word I come back to time and again. It's obvious Ellwood spent considerable time studying the events up to and after D-day and has gathered many personal stories from veterans that he relates as part of the tour. The small size of the group offered lots of time for discussion and Ellwood matched... More

My wife and I took the D-Day Battle Tour one day tour with Mr Ellwood Von Seibold in September 2014. My father had come into France on D-Day plus six and I had always wanted to expereince some of what he felt and saw at his arrival. The D-Day tour gave such wonderful information; it was an extraordianry day. We... More

We had an excellent tour of the D-day beaches with Ellwood Von Seibold, owner of D-Day Battle Tours. His passion and knowledge for strategy and the history of this monumental day in American history is fascinating. Ellwood operates out of Sainte Mere Eglise where the 100 paratroopers of the U.S. dropped on D-Day. Ellwood has great stories about that fateful... More

We had a great day with Elwood. We had two couples on the tour and the personal attention is the best. I have studied D-Day a lot but Elwood had a lot of great facts that I did not know and we had some great discussions.

We were are group of four who had lived in Germany for several years during our active duty military years. Although we had traveled in much of Europe, none of us had ever been to the Normandy coast. The tour with Rene was just the best! He gave us a full day of amazing sights and locations. Rene is very... More

We visited the D-Day beaches during off season. Even though all the museums were closed, but D-Day Battle Tours with Monica was an experience we will never forget. Monica arranged a special shared tour for us and another couple. We especially enjoyed the sites with no crowds. Monica was knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend this outfit should you need... More

Rene was knowledgeable, personable, enthusiastic, and flexible during this tour. He has extensive knowledge and kept the tour interesting to both my 9 and 11 year old daughters as well as to my 78 year old father-in-law. He was patient with my mother-in-law (who was in a wheelchair for parts of the tour). Rene tailored the tour based on my... More
