John provided my family with a really great, personalized tour of Brittany and Normandy. He picked us up at our hotel and traveled with us for three days, showing us the sights and giving us a tour of the region. He is very open to suggestions for tour stops but will have suggestions if you do not have the time... More

My adult daughter and I visited Normandy in May for four days. From the moment we landed in Paris and met John I knew we were in superb hands. We visited Monets Gardens with him the first day on the way to Normandy. His knowledge there and of the area as we drove was excellent. He was so easy to... More

My friend and I, both retired history teachers, were determined to see the D-Day landing beaches on our trip to France. Link Paris made it easy, even arranging the train tickets from Paris to Caen and back. Our first guide, Olivier, met us at the train station and took us to the museum in Caen, where he gave us a...

Link Paris was wonderful. My wife and I visited Paris for 10 days. The first five on the Left Bank, the second five on the Right Bank. In between, I wanted to visit Normandy;. Link Paris set up the train tickets, the accommodations (choices), and tour. We met at the Normand Museum. Marco, our guide, provided a bilingual (French and... More

I highly recommend John. He is easy to work with, very organized and extremely knowledgeable. John was on time, knew exactly the best route for our particular time frame and was very informative. We covered beaches and museums and never felt rushed but he kept the group moving to make sure we got all the areas of interest covered. I... More

I will simply echo what the others have said about Tim Smith's attention to detail and customer service (stellar and outstanding, respectively). What made the tour the highlight of our trip to Paris was the manner that he included those in our party (my wife and stepmom) who aren't as expert or familiar with Operation Overlord, D-Day beaches, or the...

This was the highlight of our trip. We left Paris at 7am and arrived in Caen 2 hrs later. We did need to pay close attention since the announcements are only made in French. We were greeted by our tour guide Laurent in the main hall. He took us to the Memorial of Caen museum and walked us though. We... More

This is the way to visit the Normandy battlefields. Tim Smith of John Brommage tours picked us up at our hotel in Caen. We focased on the American battlefields of Utah and Omaha. He knew the history of all of the companies. We focased on the 101st and saw dozens of the places the band of brothers were in and... More

We had the privilege of spending two days touring the major WWII sites in Normandy with Tim Smith. Tim is extremely knowledgable and also a great listener. Through conversations and questions, he understood how best to customize our tour to address what we (two couples) were interested in. One of the men in our group was from the 82nd Airborne... More

It was a wonderful way to be able to see WWII history in one very long day. We left the Paris St Lazare rail station about 7 am and returned about 10 pm. The rail trip takes you out of the city to see the other side of France, the beautiful countryside. We were met by the tour guide and... More
