My wife and I spent two full days with Eric in mid-March, 2017. We have visited many battlefields over the years -- US Revolutionary War, US Civil War, WWI and WWII, but this was our first trip to Normandy. Erik did a fabulous job of making sure that, before we began, we had a clear view of the big picture... More

Eric took my brothers, father and I on a full day tour of the British sector and gave us a truly amazing experience. From the outset his encyclopaedic knowledge and passion for the subject were obvious and he was able to paint a clear picture of the events of the day. He's also a nice bloke with a good sense...

Eric took us on a half-day British Highlights Tour and a full-day American Highlights Tour in the beginning of February. We enjoyed it very much. Eric has in-depth knowledge on all aspects of the campaign, from the importance the configuration of the terrain played in the planning of the operation and setting up of the defenses, to the course of...

We only had time to make a short stop in Normandy and wanted to make the most of it. Eric certainly helped us do that.... he picked us up / dropped us back to the train station and took us on a 4+ hour of the beaches. Beautiful area and Eric did a great job explaining the importance of the... More

We just finished this tour last week with Eric. Incredible. His vast knowledge of the invasion is second to none. He gave us an hour by hour account of the events of D Daysas he took us to various landing sites and towns. We are a family of 6,and my kids are still talking about the tour,trying to recall some...

My father and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The depth of Eric's knowledge and brutal and sometimes sobering reality, honesty really made for a great historical day. It was well paced with perfect adjustments for where we wanted to visit and how long we stayed at each location. I am so glad that we went on a tour with Eric... More

My wife and I and another couple from the US toured the D-Day sites with Eric about 2 months ago. Eric is a nice man and clearly knowledgeable about his subject.

Eric is a wonderful guide. Our family, which included our grandsons spent two days with him, touring both Utah and Omaha. Eric is a very passionate person and one can tell that Normandy guiding is deeply personal to him. He lost an Uncle on June 6, 1944,and his dad was badly wounded. His detailed knowledge of the invasion and afterwards... More

Eric was wonderful. If you have a husband that reads everything in a museum this is the guide you need. He told my husband, "Stop reading all that. This is the reason you hired me . I will tell you all about it. We hope to go back an We would use Eric again
