We felt very fortunate to have our tour of important D-Day sights with Francis. Before we arrived in France, he was very efficient with communication via email. On the day of our tour he picked us up at our hotel in Bayeux and made his way through the local area to show us highlights of Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Pointe Du Hoc, and other notable locations. Throughout the day he used maps, photographs, and stirring stories to help us understand the lead up to and the activities around D-Day. Francis was also very effective at not only relaying the large-picture aspect of the invasion but the events of that time as various individuals experienced them. We found Francis to be a very good communicator and excellent ambassador for this area of France. While we took his one-day tour, I would think that the two-day tour would also be quite worth it. We highly recommend Normandy Guided Tours with Francis Paz.

Francis Paz is simply one of the best tour guides I ever met. His command of detail and his ability to make the fateful hours and days of June 1944 come alive are absolutely fantastic. You can feel every minute the deep passion he has for the topic of D-Day. He masters the complex details of military history with ease. It is also very impressing, that he met so many of the D-Day veterans. This helps him to tell their story as very few others do. I do highly recommend Francis Paz.

We took a full day American tour. This was the best tour I’ve ever taken. Francis is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. He has a nice way of presenting an overview so that you understand the big picture. Yet, he also describes fascinating stories about individuals that really brings the history alive. We had a mixed level of knowledge coming in. Some of us (thought) we knew quite a bit, others were young teens with limited knowledge. All of us came away loving it. There were no questions that we asked that Francis didn’t have a detailed response for. This is clearly his passion and he puts a lot of effort into learning everything including speaking to veterans. It is like traveling with an historian. He doesn’t speak in cliches or spread false stories just to entertain. Finally, his vehicle is very nice and clean and comfortably accommodated 7 of us. Would recommend to everyone.

I just completed my second occasion touring the D-Day invasion area with Francis and he is simply the best! If you like to learn about the military history here and walk in the footsteps of the soldiers, Francis will guide you there like no one else. I love that he talks about each unit’s objectives, the obstacles they faced and how they overcame them, and the personal stories behind the battles. He has learned these stories from the veterans themselves who have visited over the years. There is no lost time with Francis and you will see a lot each day of your tour. Guided tours bring your visit to life and insure that you get the most out of your travel investment. I highly recommend Francis Paz and Normandy Guided Tours!
