“Outstanding guide”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Bertrand was a highly professional guide, equipped with knowledge and facts interwoven through a narrative which makes the tour one that will never be forgotten.
The story of the beaches, rommels defenses, and insight into the cemeteries are unforgettable. Bertrand tells it like it was so that the images of the day become a part of the memory forever.

Reviewed June 24, 2013

Bertrand was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable an friendly.
He is definitely worth the time!! Its hard to see and do everything in Normandy but Bertrand gives you an amazing summary and shows you all the highlights needed.
He is also very willing to show you any personal requests.

“Bertrand provides an excellent tour”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had our d-day tour with Bertrand Saudrais on May 22. Bertrand provides an excellent tour. While he has a slight accent, he is very easy to understand. He provides visual tools to help us learn about D-day and the history of the battles. We were on the go all day to get from Utah beach to Omaha beach and many more places.

His tour was well paced, he gave great insight on the battles, he had visual learning tools, and luckily we arrived and the American cemetary just in time for the flag lowering ceremony which was quite emotional.

I would recommend Bertrand to anyone. Our tour was private with just the four of us in the tour. Bertrand used his car and picked us up at the Bayeax train station in the morning and returned us at the end of the day. We stopped for lunch to eat in the car so that we could push on to see more and more.

Thanks so him for all that he did. Our husbands were amazed at the information and intrigued with the dialogue. We all learned a lot. Do not bypass a visit to Normandy and do not bypass getting a good tour guide.

“Bertrand Saudrais Normandy tour a huge success!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The full day spent with Bertrand Saudrais was an eye opening and learning experience for us. We catered our day to our personal interests and I was quite honestly overwhelmed by Bertrand's in depth knowledge of the region affected by the allied invasion and all of the details of each and every key assault. Having arrived in Normandy on June 8th, we were still close enough to the anniversary date to see some of the visitors it attracted and most importantly the 2 returning veterans we met along the way.

The experience for us was extremely rewarding and left us wanting to learn more! Bertrand is a professional who is enthusiastic about his work and will make your D-Day excursion a memorable one. I would do it again, probably will for that matter and will be comfortable reccomending Betrand to my friends.

“Wonderful tour!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Bertrand is an incredible guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and personable and eager to share the history of the region and answer questions. My husband is a WWII buff and he and Bertrand were able to share bits of their favorite books and movies while we drove to different locations. Bertrand was very accommodating -- starting our tour later than usual to give us time to get settled after a long train trip. He even gave us a bottle so that we could bring a bit of Omaha beach back for a friend.
