We spent 4 days in Bayeux Normandy in September and did a private tour with Patrick. The tour was an all day tour of the Canadian and British DDay sectors. Patrick picked us up at our hotel at 9:00am and dropped us off around 6:00pm. The tour included many interesting stops throughout the day. Patrick was an excellent guide and made the tour very enjoyable.

I recently visited Normandy and Patrick was our guide. He picked us up at the train station and took us to the Château De Canisy. He was with us for 5 days and made ever experience exciting. He is very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas, and makes everything so interesting. Even my 14 year old granddaughter fell in love with Patrick. If you need some that knows his stuff and is such a pleasure to be around, Patrick’s your man. Thank you, Patrick for such a wonderful time. Thank Nicky,( his wife) for everything she did too.

We spent 4 days with Patrick. I couldn’t give a favorite experience because Patrick made each and every tour special. He was so knowledgeable about each section of Normandy that we toured. He made history come back to life.

I recently spent time exploring The Landing Beaches of Normandy with my two sisters and Patrick Hilyer, owner of We Love Normandy.Not only did Patrick meet our expectations, he exceeded them.One sister’s husband had family who immigrated from Saint Malo and Patrick researched the family. Upon arrival in Saint Malo he found the street named for the family, along with an ancestor and one of the original houses. Patrick is extremely knowledgeable and experienced about the area and it’s history. He knows how to make learning history fun. All ages will delight in spending time with him. We sure to be at The American Cemetery at 5 for the lowering of the flag. Very memorable. You will look upon Patrick as a friend for life, he is just that type of person.

Patrick was recommended by a friend who did a private all day tour of Omaha and Utah beaches, so we booked the same. So glad we did! Rates were very reasonable, and we packed in a ton of sights from 9am-6pm. Patrick's knowledge of the area was impressive, and even got us into a restricted area that was closed to the public. Kids loved seeing all the sights, and said it was their favorite day of our entire France Vacation. Quite a testimonial! Book with Patrick. You won't regret it. -Dallas Osborn Austin TX
