We walked on the beaches of Normandy, Omaha, Juno, Gold and Sword beaches. The evidence was very much in view along the beaches of this D Day Invasion. The remains of the improvised harbor erected to ferry goods and supplies onto the beaches was mind boggling. Now the beaches are tranquil and beach goers are in the area enjoying the... More

Our family just spent two incredible days with Mathias. If you are traveling to Normandy hiring Mathias is an absolute must! His knowledge of the history, geography and the men who fought was amazing. You will see and learn things that would be impossible on your own. Can't wait to come back and discover more with Mathias. He also knows... More

Hired Mathias as my tour guide based on TripAdvisor reviews and was glad I did. He is an outstanding guide who is fully knowledgeable of all aspects of the invasion. I had read Stephen Ambrose's great D Day book before going to France for background. Mathias made that book come alive for me. I would highly recommend Mathias if you... More

This tour of all the D-Day beach provided insight that I would not have gotten and really added value to our visit to the Normandy area. Without our tour guide it would have just sightseeing.

Four of us spent the day with Mathias for a day trip around Normandy. To say the man knows his stuff about the area, the events leading up to D Day and the assault itself would be a tremendous understatement. For 9 hours from the time he picked us up at the Caen train station, he discussed all aspects of... More

Mathias LeClere provided 6 of us with a memorable tour of the D Day beaches at Normandy. Even though the weather was windy and damp, we were able to witness the D Day invasion while standing on that hallowed ground. We visited a German military cemetery, Omaha beach, and the American cemetery. We walked the German fortifications above Omaha Beach... More

We were very fortunate to get to spend a private day tour with Mathias visiting the various D-Day sites during Spring Break. As first time visitors to Paris/France we planned a day trip by train from Paris to Caen, Normandy and worked via email with Mathias to schedule/organize our trip. From our first contact to the actual visit - Mathias... More

Although Mathias Leclere gives most of his tours at D-Day sites, we were fortunate enough to land him for a daylong visit to Mont Saint Michel. In our email correspondence in preparation for the tour, he offered to organize a walk in the bay which turned out to be a highlight of our magical day at the Mont. From the... More

My family and I visited Caen in April 2016 and wanted to see as much of the D-Day landing sectors as we could. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we only had time to spend one day in the area, but it was easily the best day of our holiday. I contacted Mathias via the email address on his website and,...

We booked the two day tour, incorporating Mont St-Michel and some D-day highlights. Mathias' grasp of the history and attention to detail on both days was amazing, going down to fine details on the architecture of Mont St-Michel and even specific bullet markings on the D-day fortifications. Old pictures of the places we visited, such as the fortifications on Omaha... More
