Rene was a great guide, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. His stories and visuals brought the events alive for us unforgettably.

This is a tour worth taking. The day is long and packed full of great "must sees," but the best part was the small party that tagged along. So often, tours are unenjoyable due to large groups of people. The personal touch and knowledgeable tour guides made for a great day (we were lucky the weather was perfect). I wish... More

We toured with Ellwood Von Seibold who is a delightful and gifted teacher deep in personal experience who brought Normandy alive for my wife and I.

My husband and I brought our 5 year old and our 12 year old (lover of history and WWII) to Normandy and our tour was the highlight of the trip. Rene was phenomenal and was able to connect with the boys at a sophisticated but appropriate level. Rene, the tour and our experience were beyond our highest expectations.

My husband and I set up a day long tour with Mr. Von Seibold, and we have a wonderful time. Starting off in St. Mere Eglise, continuing along Utah and Omaha Beach and finishing in the US Cemetery at Normandy we were able to get a clearer idea of the events that took place on D-Day. The commentary was one... More

We had a most informative time with Rene. He is enthusiastic and has studied the subject as well as learning from Elwood, who has owned the company for years. Our only issue will probably not happen again, but we missed the American Cemetery due to an early closure for the change of seasons. Rene had been out of town until... More

Rene was not available, but the young man who gave the tour was also excellent. We can highly recommend the van tour and feel that we had a first class experience.

We had a marvelous DDay Tour with Rene as our guide. All 3 of us continue to talk about our tour 8 months later and tell everyone we know. Rene went above and beyond for us, including making the tour last longer than it was scheduled for so that we could see even more. It was more moving and spectacular... More

This tour company is the best! We chose the full-day van trip for our group of four. Total number of passengers was only nine, so there was plenty of personal time with our guide, Rene. It was obvious that Rene was knowledgeable about history of the Normandy area. He made those important historical moments come alive with stories and personal... More

My two girlfriends and I booked this recommended tour and it was beyond our expectations. Rene's passion and historical knowledge of WWII is excellent and he made this memorable trip to Normandy one we will not forget. We travelled to out of the way places that we would never have known existed without his historical knowledge. He is an excellent... More
