About
Dean will guide you through the events of D-Day, focusing on the American Sectors and how they fit in with Overlord generally. He will begin with the Airborne Pathfinders, the Airborne Paratroopers, the gliders and the key battlefields of the Utah-Cotentin area. After a superb picnic lunch (provided), he will show you how Rudder's Rangers pulled off their amazing feat at Pointe du Hoc and then steer you through the complexities of Bloody Omaha, from the slaughterhouse to success. Dean will also provide you with an extremely personalised experience based upon stories of individual soldiers and citizens and accounts related by veterans he has had the honour to meet with over the years. Your tour will culminate with an extremely moving visit to the American Military Cemetery above Omaha Beach including the close of day ceremony accompanied by Taps. We will also visit Sainte Mere Eglise and La Fiere Bridge battle sites.

Unethical - Takes Deposit and Never Responds to Emails
Apr 2020
We booked a tour with Dean directly in earlier in the year, Dean confirmed that the he would refund the fee ($1000USD) if we needed to cancel the tour. Due to the pandemic we canceled the tour more than 60 days in advance of the tour. After more than 8+ attempts to contact Dean via email we have yet to receive any response or refund. While his tour are highly rated, I would strongly encourage you to select other providers, as Dean appears to less than ethical.

This can't happen. When you book, you pay Viator/Tripadvisor and not me directly. I don't get paid until 4-6 weeks AFTER the tour. When the pandemic took off, I was asked by Viator/Tripadvisor would I allow my clients to cancel without penalty. I did in every case. I didn't give the refund because I didn't receive the money. Viator/Tripadvisor made (or didn't make) the refund. In addition, I have a refund policy on this platform and cannot deviate from it. I only get paid when the tour is completed, and then only by Viator/Tripadvisor.

D-Day Excursion Normandy
Nov 2019 • Family
This was our second D-Day experience for our family. We used Dean's Private D-Day Experience this time, as our last guide was already booked. I am extremely grateful that we came upon Dean, and his company.
1. He focused on understanding that we had teens with us and worked on including them in the tour. He asked each of them to do a little research on specific individuals that they would then hear about. The teens, felt involved in the time. They understood more about the what the tour was about.
2. His personal touch was outstanding. He was extremely focused on making sure our experience was educational, informative, and in general a wonderful experience.
3. I felt like he read our group of 8 very well. The 8 hour experience, certainly did not feel like 8 hours. The length was a concern with teens, but my concern was not an issue. Everyone felt as though the time "flew" by!
4. His knowledge is presented not in a lecturing manner. It is done so in stories, the ones he has researched himself through the myriad of public information. This time our journey felt like a school field trip, rather than a lecture presented in a stuffy classroom.
5. To top it off, the picnic lunch was put together by his wife, complete with homemade cookies.

The tour was a wealth of knowledge, but his focus on the human experience of D-Day is what was the absolute gem. You got in one, Dean!

I highly recommend using Dean on your experience! You will feel as though you gained a friend in Normandy!

Thank you for this wonderful and thoughtful review. I'm so glad that you were all so pleased with your tour. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the day with your two families. It was an absolute pleasure. I was particularly pleased to see how "into it" the youngsters were. Really super kids, really super parents, really super group. Best wishes from your friend in Normandy.
