We spent two full days with Florin as our tour guide as a part of a major US Museum's tour package. First day in Falaise visiting the Château de Falaise and Mémorial des Civils. Second day at Mont St. Michel. Florin's expertise and presentation of Norman history, considering my limited knowledge, was extensive and quite enlightening. It encouraged me to follow up and continue to read and learn all I could about the spots we had visited.

To top off our experience - I was hoping to visit some areas at Omaha Beach that were not on our trip's itinerary. After a full day at Falaise, Florin offered his services to take me and my wife to some of the locations that I really wanted to see. The three of us walked and talked the whole time. We felt that we got to know him on a personal level. We had a great time, and again, his attention to detail was amazing. I can't thank him enough for taking our Normandy trip above and beyond what was already a trip of a lifetime.

Thanks Florin

Florin Petre was not only a capable tour guide, he was also a professor of WW2 history. We loved the way he taught us using maps, charts, and pictures that were put in an easy-to-open binder; we learned SO much.
He was very gracious, took questions easily, and was very patient.
There were 8 of us in our group, and we ALL said he was the best guide/teacher we had of any excursion we had on our European cruise. This guy knew his stuff and he taught us well!
5 stars - easily!

I am very happy to know that the tour lived up to your expectations! I am fully aware of the fact that for many people this may very well be a once in a life time opportunity to visit Normandy so I strive to make the tours both interesting and informative. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review!

We did a full day tour with Florin. I suggested to him what we would like to see and Florin designed the tour around this. We had a great tour, Florin took us around the US airborne landing sights as well as to both Utah and Omaha landing beaches. Florin's knowledge was fantastic, he answered all our questions in depth, his extensive knowledge and research was clear and impressive. From the second Florin sat into our car his knowledge flowed, his enthusiasm for history is evident in how he delivers the tour. At each location he was able to show us photos that allowed us to imagine what it was like for those on D-Day itself. Throughout the day we moved at our pace, allowing us to take in all the information that Florin was bestowed upon us. I would highly recommend Spearhead Tours.

This tour of four of the major sites of the Normandy invasion was incredible! From Ste Mere Eglise to Pont du Hoc to Utah and Omaha Beaches, history was so vividly displayed and so sobering. Florin was a GREAT guide and a walking encyclopedia of information and able to answer all our questions. As a final stop, the American cemetery was something to see and to put the war in proper perspective.

These tours are not inexpensive but definitely worth the money for all the sites and knowledge you come away with. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

Excellent full day tour of Mont St Michelle. Florin was a wealth of knowledge, provided a great tour with much information of the abbey. With the tickets & guide experience we were at the front of the line for Mont St Michelle & walked the entire area with little crowds in June. I would recommend Spearhead Tours and wish we had another day to do a tour with him. He was fabulous!

We had a marvelous experience with Florin both in Normandy and at Mont St. Michel. His vast knowledge of the area gave us insights that we never would have received otherwise. My husband had been to both places before and came away amazed at all the new things he had seen and learned with Florin. We couldn't have been more pleased and would recommend Spearhead Tours to anyone. The experience would not be nearly as good with anyone else!

Florin was a tremendous guide with a wealth of knowledge on Normandy. He customized a day tour for us which provided a perspective of D-Day from all sides (American, British and Canadian, etc). His insight and explanations were the highlight of our trip and truly helped us to understand how things unfolded, the wins and the losses. We recommend his services whole heartedly.

Florin made our trip to the Normandy area and WWII sites come to life. Florin's background is a history major and was able to answer any question we asked. Florin spent a full day with us. This one day was very special ending at the American cemetery in time for the Flag lowering and Taps played. It was very moving. This one day was the highlight of our two week trip to France and 100% due to Florin's professionalism and knowledge . We highly recommend Florin and Spearhead Tours!

We had the best time with Florin! He was so knowledgeable, kind, accommodating, and overall wonderful. We were a private tour of four adults who had the best time. We could have easily spent two more days traveling with and learning from him!
