“Normandy Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Had a great experience with Vanessa. She was extremely knowledgeable, informative and a lot of fun. Only mistake we made was booking a 1/2 day tours of the Normandy Omaha Beach area, a full day tour is highly recommended. Lots of things and area to see. Picked up in Caen on time and returned on time. Had a great experience.

“Normandy and Mont Saint-Michel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Vanessa was our guide for a Normandy D-Day tour and she was just wonderful. Her knowledge of the area, the history of each of the villages and zones was educational. We had such a fabulous time on the tour that we asked and she accepted the following day trip to Mont Saint-Michel. Vanessa is a wonderful and very professional tour guide and I would highly recommend her for any of the tours of Normandy. Normandy was certainly the highlight of our 10 day visit to France and two of those days were with Vanessa.

“Knowledgeable and Personal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Vanessa Letourneur our guide was both knowledgeable and personal. She learned about the people on our tour, remembered our names and where we were from, and knew so much about the history of the area and DDay of course. As a native of Arromanches, she adds a unique take on the area as well. She answered all of our questions on the tour. My friend and I were a bit late due to a scheduling confusion, but she was gracious. She took most of our tour group to the train station in Bayeux after the tour as well. If we had known about this, we would have taken advantage of this and could have saved money instead of taking a cab!

“Everything we wanted to see and more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

We were guided by Sabrina on our full day of the American zones. We learned so much, my Husband even learned new things. Sabrina's knowledge and narrative was great. We recommend without question.

“D-Day Beaches Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

You couldn't ask for a better tour guide than Vanessa Letourneur. I loved her use of overlays to bring the events of June 6, 1944, to life. As a lifelong student of history with much knowledge of that time I was impressed with her insights and learned new things. Vanessa is a lovely woman and a true professional. My wife isn't a history buff, but ended up enjoying the tour more than I would have thought. This is all due to Vanessa. We intend to return to Normandy in the next few years and tour the British and Canadian sectors. I hope Vanessa is still available.
