Myself, my husband and our nine year old son had the pleasure of booking a tour with Mathias for the American beaches. What an absolutely profound experience. His near encyclopedic knowledge of the invasion and WW2 combined with his personal family history in the area makes him uniquely suited to conduct these educational tours. This is an experience that will... More

Mathia Leclere has an awesome knowledge of Normandy and Dday sights and events. He answered any questions, increased our understanding of what all sides faced during the days and planning of the invasion. He tailored the trip to our needs and took us to see small memorials and landscapes that we never could have known about. Mathias took us to... More

We did a 2 day private tour with Mathias focusing on the Canadian contribution. We can not say enough about Mathias and his extensive knowledge of anything relating to WWII . Not only his knowledge but more importantly his passion. He tailored our 2 day tour to our needs. We followed the route of the Calgary Queens Own during WW2.... More

Our guide was very informative, the tour was set up to allow for the right amount of time to explore on your own as well as benefit from the guides knowledge with a great lunch break to boot. Worth every penny.

Awesome knowledge of Normandy France and D Day. Toured bloody Omaha beach, Pointe Du Hoc and American cemetery. A huge history lesson uncovering details of the pre invasion, invasion and post invasion. Mathias has many photos to share that you won't find in books or libraries.

Mathias has an encyclopedic knowledge of D-Day, and shares it in a warm and engrossing fascination. He tailors the tour to the customer. It is clear he loves the history and feels compassion for the soldiers and families. I cannot imagine a better guide!

This tour was a bucket list item for my history buff husband. We had a tour with Mathias, who was positively amazing. My husband's grandfather landed on Omaha beach during WWII and I provided the information we had to Mathias who then researched his unit and was able to talk specifically about what he would have encountered the day he...

The 6 of us spent the day in Normandy with Mathias, touring the D-Day beaches. It was an excellent tour, and a highlight of our trip. Mathias is very knowledgeable and customized our day with a Canadian focus at our request. As well, Mathias can add a personal touch to the information he provides, as his family has lived in...

After a disappointing start to our sightseeing in Paris with another company we were thrilled and amazed by the outstanding experience we had on our D-Day Normandy landings day trip with City Wonders through Viator.com. It was a long day but very well paced and full of interest from start to finish. We were a party of 38 comfortably accommodated... More
