Great tour for those with an interest in World War 2. Eric asked what level he should pitch the tour at - detailed or overview. We chose detailed because most of our group were reasonably informed (although not compared to Eric). The information he provided was fantastic and really interesting. It did go a bit above the less informed group... More

Eric was fantastic. He picked us up at our hotel at the scheduled time and delivered us back after the tour was over. He helped us find affordable food for lunch and a nice place to enjoy our lunch while we ate. Tour details: It is an all-day tour. Layer your clothes, because it can be windy. Be prepared in...

I wanted to visit the D-Day beaches to retrace the steps my father took and to try to understand what happened to him better. Eric was brilliant in giving information in an easily understandable format and also relating the history to individual circumstances. We had expected a run-of-the -mill tour which did not take into consideration individual requirements but we... More

We enjoyed our tour with Eric and he is indeed very knowledgeable and passionate about D-Day, with minute by minute detail of what happened when and where. I agree with the "Disappointed" review in that his tour is not for everybody. My teens felt like it was more of a history lecture and they and I would have enjoyed more... More

We had such expectations for this tour but frankly were quite disappointed! On our recent visit to Normandy we were keen to get an overview of the events that took place in 1944 and were referred on to Eric's tour as our first choice was unavailable. Starting with the information provided prior to the tour, I was expecting to receive... More

We stayed in the Normandy area for three days (parents, teenagers & grandmother), and on our first day we booked a full day trip with Eric. Eric picked us up at our rental apartment and drove us to Utah & Omaha Beaches and other points of interest in that area (i.e. American Cemetery, Pointe du Hoc, Ste Mare Elise). The... More
