My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day sojourn with Stuart and his wife Jenny. They were delightful and capable hosts. From the moment Stuart picked us up at the Carentan rail station until we left he provided us a depth of knowledge and insight that make this a truly memorable trip. His obvious knowledge and passion to tell... More

Four of us recently toured the D-Day battlefields for five days with Stuart, and what an amazing experience it was! His extensive knowledge of the first days of the Normandy campaign brings the history to life. Stuart is a true historian by both education and research, but the experience is more than simply a recitation of facts and events. By... More

Stuart provided a tour of the entire Normandy experience for myself and three of my friends. The tour was very comprehensive and done with a passion for the historical aspects of D Day and great compassion for the soldiers involved in the operation. In addition to Stuarts services as a tour guide we also took advantage of the Bed and... More

My family (5 of us) took the one day tour with Stuart. He picked us up at the train station and dropped us at our airbnb accommodations after the tour completed. He warned us in advance that it is a lot to see in one day and he was correct! He was very personable and knowledgeable and we enjoyed his... More

Outstanding in all respects, from the stellar accommodations of the farm house(which was used as an aide station during the battle) to Stuart's impressive knowledge of the Battle for Normandy, truly a spectacular vacation. Stuart and Jenny were the most gracious hosts. Stuart's personal relationships with many of the D-Day veterans, and telling their stories was the hi light of... More

My wife and I along with two of our friends toured the D-Day battle sites (Utah and Omaha Beaches, Pont du Hoc and St Mere Eglise) along with the German and US Cemeteries and had a wonderful learning experience. Stuart's knowledge of the events/sites is outstanding and he shares it very well. He developed a structure that filled our days... More

Six adults (3 couples) took this one-day tour with Stuart in March 2016 and had a great time. Stuart picked us up and returned us to the train station and gave us tips on food for the return to Paris. Couldn't have been more efficient and fitted to our one day availability to visit Normandy. All of us were deeply... More

I and friends recently were privileged to hire Stuart again to guide us through the events surrounding the Normandy landings in 1944. Stuart is a historian who is able to draw on his depth of knowledge and expertise to impart most effectively the atmosphere of those events. A wonderful experience yet again!

Two friends & I had a private tour with Stuart a couple of weeks ago. We had previously done a tour (also with Stuart) focusing on the American beaches so this time we concentrated on the British beaches & on the related events before & after D-Day. As last time, Stuart proved to be very good company but more importantly... More
