We were unsure as to how helpful it would be to have a tour guide. Rene was helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. Its too much information to absorb without someone giving the big picture of D-day. He would bring the information down to what a particular man did at a site. It made each site more personable and... More

I participated in a tour guided by René with my parents and two others focusing on Utah and Omaha beaches and the American cemetery. René was incredibly knowledgable about any and all aspects of D-Day and WWII, being able to answer just about any question we threw his way. His knowledge put the battle into completely new light for me... More

Cannot say enough about D-Day Battle Tours. If you are considering a D-Day beaches visit, please consider taking D-Day Battle Tours - don't just go visit yourself. There is so much interesting and valuable information that you would never get unless you read about every book about D-Day that there is! Rene was an outstanding and personable tour guide, whose...

What an experience! We booked a 2 day tour with Rene, who is both extremely knowledgeable and highly attuned to the group's interests. Rene's tour covered a lot of ground, and his in-depth knowledge and personal stories made this an experience we will never forget. It is hard to fathom the size and scope of the D-Day sites, but Rene's... More

Our tour guide, Rene, was incredibly knowledgeable and provided an enormous amount of historical facts about D-Day and the invasion of Normandy. However, in addition to facts, he had researched wonderful personal stories, which made the experience "come to life".

This full day tour was beyond anything I could have hoped for! Besides visiting a variety of areas related to D-Day (in addition to the Utah & Omaha beaches), Monica's knowledge of the numerous stories related to D-Day, as well as her friendly and down-to-earth approach to her tour made this a highlight of our recent trip. The amount of... More

I booked a tour at the recommendation of a friend who had used them before and with the other positive reviews it seemed like a no brainer and it was! Monica and Rene were quick to respond on all emails leading up to the trip and everything about the tour exceeded my expectations (which were extremely high!) Rene picked us... More

We are not really sure where to start with our review/praise for Rene and his D-Day tour. If you have the opportunity to book a private tour with Rene, do it. It was myself, my fiance, my mom, and my great aunt -- she was the main reason we did a private tour, as this trip was very important and... More

My wife and I spent a beautiful day with Rene on the one day "D-Day Tour". This has been a bucket list item for me for quite a while and I must say that we really hit the jackpot. The weather had a lot to do with a fantastic day, but it was Rene who stole the show. He was... More

My sister and I decided fairly last minute to see Normandy on our current trip to Paris. I researched as many tour companies and individuals as possible and found D-Day Battle Tours to be one of the best (after experiencing the tour yesterday, I wholeheartedly agree with all the positive points mentioned in the other reviews!). This tour is not... More
