An amazing day. Francois is very knowledgeable and courteous. He took us through the American sector. I learned quite a bit. Overall a moving experience.

We spent three days with Francois and had a great experience with him. He is very knowledgeable and fun, and accommodated our wishes as part of his plan every day. His recommendations were spot-on - he is really terrific.

Fantastic Private Tour
Apr 2019 • Friends
We were set up with Francois by my travel agent. To quote her "Francois is Normandy!" My Father was a D-Day veteran who landed on Utah Beach, so this particular full day tour focused on the Utah Beach area at my request.

Staying in Paris, we took the train to Normandy where we were met at the train station by Francois where our tour promptly started. Francois provided fresh croissants and bottled water as he drove us to the first site Sainte-Mere-Eglise to visit the church, then it was on to Utah Beach and museum, followed by Pointe Du Hoc, Ohama Beach and the American Cemetery. We also enjoyed a nice lunch together and even drove by a German cemetery.

His knowledge is quite impressive. What I liked most about Francois' tour was that he was very to the point and doesn't ramble on like many other tour guides. He took us to what he thought were the most important places with the most important information in the short time we had with him.

I highly recommend Francois for any European battlefield tour.

an absolute necessity

to see first hand the terrain we thought we saw in Saving Private Ryan etc is blown away - the Rangers who scaled those walls to reach German positions were brave, strong and determined- those odds they were up against were ridiculous but they did it- God Bless their souls- RIP

Spent a week with Francois as our guide for a group of 16. He could not have been more informative and insightful. Would recommend him for a one day visit to the WW II sites or an extended visit we had throughout Normandy. The Best !

Fascinating day with Francois
Sep 2018 • Couples
We had a full day tour with Francois and he managed to pack so much information into the many sites we visited. We would highly recommend Francois as he will customize the sites you are interested in and add some of the locally known locations. His knowledge of the area is immense and his family connection to the Normandy area is unique. This was easily the best tour we have ever experienced. It is helpful to know the history and to know what you are looking at. He will make the area come alive.

I could visualise the sea of boats coming across the channel, from historical photos there are no changes to the whole area. Poignant.

D-Day Tour
Aug 2017 • Couples
Interesting tour, but you needed to know a fair bit of D-Day history beforehand. We would liked to have seen more of some and less of other parts of the tour. A little rushed or maybe we didn't get lucky with the guide.

Excellent one day tour with Guillaume at Normandy DDay Tours. Excellent guide, great sense of humor, spent 10 years in (French) military. We had 6 people - 2 of whom had a broad base of knowledge of D-Day and Guillaume was excellent! Would definitely go with him again!

A quite amazing day
Sep 2017 • Friends
Francois Gauthron made our day tour of the Normandy Beaches, two of the adjoining cemeteries and several other points of interest (Pegasus Bridge, coastal gun emplacements, vantage points etc.) an absolutely enthralling, interesting and very informative day - not without its very evocative moments when visiting Ranville and Omaha cemeteries.

So much detailed knowledge given in such an interesting and, at times, humorous way, made our day seem like a TV documentary of all the many and varied aspects of D Day, its planning and execution. A story told in such a vivid way by Francois as we travelled the length (70 miles) of the D Day beaches.

Born in Normandy, Francois' English was extremely good, even though given with an unmistakable American drawl! - a throw back to his time in the US Army.

If you ever think of doing such a tour on your own - forget it. You will miss so much if you don't take a guided tour and Francois is definitely your man.

Every one of our 18 man group were similarly impressed.
