Our experience with Mr. Roel Klinkhamer's Victory Tours was an excellent one. Booking a private tour online from the US for the four people in our group was no problem, and his website was very informative. Even though on the appointed day our train from Caen/Paris was delayed, Roel was still there waiting for us at the Bayeux train station,... More

mr. Roel Klinkhamer is probably one of the best tour guides to visit the Normandy beaches. The passion is obvious when he speaks on his intercom system in the bus about the great war effort the allies have made. Clear voice and supported with meetings Roel had with the old veterans you'll experience it all over again.

The best way to really see the beaches of Normandy. Roel Klinkhamer and Victory Tours are the way to do it. From the time he picked the four of us up in the morning until he dropped us off after a full day's tour he provided us with a wealth of information about the D-Day landings. He is passionate about... More

Roel is as good as it gets. He loves history and is very passionate about it. He will bring you to places you would never see if you were on one of the big tour buses. One of the people in my group had a grandfather who stormed the beaches, so Roel went out of his way to take her... More

My wife, adult son, and I used Victory Tours to tour the D-Day sites. Our guide, Roel, was a wonderful resource and a font of information about the entire area and the activities regarding the invasion. He relayed several anecdotes that he had gleaned from several heroes that were involved in the battle and had later returned to France. Also,... More

Bonsoir Jeff, Thank you for your very kind e-mail! Little correction: It was not Utah Beach that we visited where the 'Indian Head' landed, but I took you to the OMAHA BEACH part where the 2nd I.D. landed. Have a great weekend! Best regards, Roel More

We did a half-day tour as a family of 5 in mid-december. I couldn't imagine a better way to see Normany- Roel picked us up in a van and drove us to all the essential stops- Omaha Beach, the American Cemetery, Pointe du Hoc, and more. He had extensive knowledge and kept us all engaged. Would absolutely recommend to anyone... More

Having chosen Victory Tours solely because of the online reviews, any reservations I had were immediately put to rest with the first email correspondence with Roel, as he was professional, helpful, efficient and friendly. I booked the one day private tour for my family of 7 (ages 57, 56, 29, 27, 27, 27, 24), and a great day was had... More

Roel brings an encyclopedic knowledge and a passionate interest in WWII history to help the visitor experience D-Day 70+ years later! We scheduled same-day train round trip travel from Paris (approximately 2-1/2 hours each way, but quite manageable), and Roel met us at the station in Bayeux for a private half-day (4 ½ hrs) Normandy Landing Beaches Tour. His familiarity... More

This was the second tour I had with Roel (the first was fifteen years ago). Roel is very knowledgable about the area and its history. Most importantly, he is extremely passionate about the history of WWII, and the experience of those who lived it. This was the best part of our stay in France. There is no better option for... More

With 2 young-adult sons, 22 & 24, one a history major at University, and neither interested in art museums(!), we agreed to take them to the D-Day beaches. A friend had just gone with Roel, so we signed up. He has a perfect day planned out, he knows the subject, he has great stories, and even after over 2000 tours,... More
