“Day trip to the American Sector of Normandy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Our group consisted of 7, grandparents, parents, and three teenagers. Christophe met us at the Bayeux train station on time, (we had taken an early train from Paris) and provided a helpful, insightful, engaging, personal tour appreciated by all 7 of us. He modified his tour to our interests and needs, and provided so much information with a personal touch. We highly recommend Christophe for your visit to Normandy!

“Private tour of the Canadian Sector, Juno Beach, Normandy, France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We went to France to see the Canadian Sector (Juno Beach) and learn more of the story of our Canadian Soldiers during the D-Day landings. In researching various group tours, we realised that our schedule and 'must-see' list wouldn't work on a bus with a set sight seeing tour.
I emailed several private tour guides, and liked the response from Christophe the best. We booked him and sent our request list.
Christophe picked us up at the train station in Caen in his wonderful, spotless tour vehicle and we were off!! The car is a touring car with huge windows, and can seat 5 people comfortably.
He told us of his passion for the stories of D-Day (he grew up in Caen knowing what the Allied Forces sacrificed for his city, country & Europe), and this passion shone through the entire day. Christophe knows more about Canadian history during the war than most Canadians do. His research and portrayal of the stories made D-Day come to life for us.
We HIGHLY recommend Christophe as a D-Day/Normandy tour guide. As he speaks fluent French, English and Italian (and probably a few more languages we didn't discuss), there is no fumbling for words in telling the story. Do take our advice and have a day that you will never forget. Rob & Heather

“Best D Day Tour Guide Christophe Rault”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

We traveled for a full day with Christolphe in August 2011 and were amazed by his breadth o knowledge about the history of the region and all there is to see and do to appreciate Normandy. We have traveled very extensively with many private guides and with organized tours. We had been to Normandy years ago and were so pleased to experience such an indepth visit with Christolphe. He tailored the day to our needs and we left him that evening wishing that we could spend more time with him. He was a teacher and an ambassador at the same time. His presentation was exciting! We highly reccommend him to anyone visiting the area. I am sorry that I did not review sooner but this week I gave a reference for him to a friend and he asked me if I had posted a review. Now I have!
