      Touring Normandy
      From someone who loves Old Cars, taking the tour in a such a beloved, essential and stereotypical French classic car really sets the mood and state of mind when visiting the many historical Normandy sites. Bernard also has an excellent grasp of the local history which makes the tour so exciting. Thank you Bernard, I would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to do something different, off the beaten path and for a good price.

    We had a brilliant time with our knowledgeable host Bernard, exploring Ouistreham in the classic Citroen Dyane, stopping at historical sites and landmarks. A very fun and enriching experience with not too much walking for those who like a leisurely pace. We highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Normandy. An afternoon well spent and a very memorable experience.

    We loved our trip along the coast with Bernard in the cute 2CV. He was very patient stopping whenever and wherever we wanted to take photos, showed us a variety of sights and we learned a lot about the history and culture of the area. Can recommend!

    This was such a fun and unique way to experience the area. Bernard and the car were fab - almost felt like we were in a Pink Panther movie... great afternoon exploring the unique history and architecture of the area... away from all the tourists... Absolutely recommend!

    I have enjoyed making this ride in the time machine together with you. We took the atmosphere of the 70's aboard the blue 'Pink Panther' and discovered some of the secrets of Normandy Pearl Coast. Thank you very much for your review and happy to see you again soon in our great spot.

    Delightful Bernard took me on a wonderful tour of the Normandy coast and countryside through some of the historic but not overly touristy towns. He shared his knowledge and enthusiasm for local history which I really enjoyed. The car was charming and we putt-putted along at a leisurely pace. Merci beaucoup!

    Thank you so much for your kind review and glad you enjoyed it. Albeit we had some light showers during the ride, we did not miss any of the wonders I wanted to show you. You are more than welcome in Normandy, any time...

    The visit was a surprise gift that we gave to our parents! We hit the nail on the head: they loved this return to the past, the exchanges with Bernard, and we had a blast too!
    We had planned the walk at the start of our stay in Ouistreham, it's a good idea, after all the advice/anecdotes received from Bernard we will continue our stay with "better insight" into the region!
    It's an original activity, which is worth doing.
    After a telephone conversation, Bernard was able to adapt the activity to our family of 5 people, we are all delighted by this experience.
    I 100% recommend this guided tour!

    We spent a magnificent afternoon during this interesting ride in a decapoted Diane, with good weather. Our guide showed us a lot of interesting things that we would have missed without this outing. His very detailed explanations allowed us to better understand the ancient and recent history of the region. The friendly atmosphere and the excellent apple juice will remain in our memories. Recommended to all lovers of unusual experiences.

    C'est un plaisir de lire votre retour d'expérience. Le beau temps était de la partie comme les nombreux véhicules de la seconde guerre mondiale que nous avons croisé sur notre parcours. Je suis heureux que votre découverte des lieux insolites de la côte de nacre ait été si appréciée. Je vous remercie pour votre curiosité et votre enthousiasme lors de cette balade. Une belle après-midi pour moi en votre compagnie.

    Having someone passionate who takes you for three hours on a visit rich in anecdotes and above all knowledge on the history of this region is very, very appreciated.
    Bernard captivated us throughout the journey.
    We recommend without any hesitation this visit which has the charm of vintage with the Diane decapitated if time permits.

    Je vous suis très reconnaissant pour ce très bel avis. Sous le soleil, une balade ponctuée par de nombreux véhicules militaires que nous avons croisé sur notre route à l'approche de l'anniversaire du D-Day. J'ai beaucoup apprécié ce moment en votre compagnie, très riche en partage. Merci.

    Spent a very nice afternoon in Dyane. Bernard perfectly knows how to combine interesting events from the Second World War with architectural gems and a touch of history during the tour. In short, worth recommending

    Superb walk with a guide passionate about the history of his region.
    I highly recommend this wonderful day adventure in the Diane.
    Very comfortable car. It brought back good memories for us. My 11 year old daughter loved it.
    Thank you Bernard

    Merci d'avoir pris le temps de rédiger ce bel avis. Une belle balade ensemble très interactive même si la pluie ne nous a pas épargnée, nous avons profité des pépites de la côte de nacre avec nos vêtements de pluie... C'est effectivement une machine à raviver les souvenirs pour ceux qu'ils l'ont connu à l'époque et une découverte pour les plus jeunes. Au plaisir de vous revoir pour d'autres découvertes...
