My husband and I took Ellwood von Seibold's D-Day Battle Tour in mid-October. It was the highlight of our trip to Normandy. We started the day with Ellwood at his home in Ste.- Mere Eglise, which set the stage perfectly His passion for the topic and all of his wonderful personal stories gave us a great experience. He was both... More

We scheduled a private, one-day tour with Renee of D-Day Battle Tours. It is a bit expensive so we wondered if it would be 'worth it.' However, from the minute Renee picked us up and we drove to the coast, we realized that Renee was not only very nice; but he was a walking encyclopedia of information regarding Normandy, the... More

As a relative novice/beginner to the Normandy & D-day history, I left all the ground arrangements for our visit with my American uncle. Uncle told me where to be, and what to bring. As we commenced the tour and met Rene, I was amazed as he eased us, and immersed us into the history, horror, heroism and bravery that was... More

We spent a week touring the D-Day Beaches last summer, including a private tour day with Rene of D-Day Battle Tours. In short our day was the highlight of the trip for my 12 year old son. Rene met us at 10am in Ste Mere Eglise and for the next 9 hours we toured some of the well known sites... More

Our day with Rene was the highlight of our trip to France. Ignore the cost-- it's worth every Euro no matter how much you paid. I've never been prone to hire a guide or take a tour, preferring to discover things for myself at my own pace. Boy, am I ever glad I made an exception here. There is no... More

We had specifically asked for Elwood because of the recommendation of a very demanding acquaintance who lauded him to high heaven. We're glad we did. He has sold the company and now will be available some of the time but not all, but he's a great storyteller, carries a large portfolio of photos (laminated so the drizzle didn't hurt) and... More

Spent the day on a small group tour with Rene- couldn't have been better. Rene is friendly, engaging and speaks perfect English. He is a wealth of information on the history and took us to areas we would have never known about or be able to find. This is worth every penny- what a difference it makes to know all... More

We spent the day with Rene touring the Normandy area. He is so knowledgeable and engaging, the time flew by. One of the nicest parts of the tour were the personal insights Rene had because of the time he has spent with veterans over the years. The icing on the cake is that he intersperses interesting stories and takes you... More

Highly recommend Elwood von Seibold who runs D-Day Battle Tours. He was knowledgeable and quite passionate about the subject. The day ran smoothly and efficiently. Elwood has great stories to tell about the invasion and explaines the US, German and French strategies in layman's terms.
