“D Day Landing Tours Review”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

My wife and adult daughter spent a beautiful day visiting the historical American D-Day sites in
Normandy. Eric is more than a superb historian, particularly as it pertains to the Normandy invasion, but he also has an accurate and honest view of WWII for both a macro and micro opinions. I believed Eric is both a historian and in part an actor-entertainer as we spent nearly 9 hours with him. Tom

“Simply Fantastic!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Trip date: 4/16/13

The reviews prior to mine are exactly correct. Eric is simply fantastic. The weather was abysmal, but he made our tour (one day, American Highlights) worth every minute of the cold and rain. His encyclopedic knowledge of World War II, and specifically the invasion of Normandy, is complemented by his cheerful, easy-going personality. Eric truly loves the subject and is excited to share it with others. He is the history professor that you always wanted in school.

“A wealth of knowledge”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Eric made us feel that we had been there in 1944, re-creating the history of D-day as well as the entire Normandy campaign. His command of the information is impressive and he keeps it interesting and entertaining. We expected to get a good feel for the beaches and the invasion and we did. A bonus was his excellent description of the fighting in the hedge rows and the problems that presented. Despite the weather (which likewise wasn't the best June 6, 1944) we had an incredible day.

“Band of Brothers Tour”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Just back from a wonderful trip to France. The best part was our time with Eric. I wanted to set up a private tour to concentrate on the Band of Brothers areas. Eric went beyond my expectations! I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a more personalized Normandy experience.

“Wonderful Day with Eric and D-Day Landing Tours”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We toured Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery with Eric -- it was an absolutely great day. Eric is knowledgeable and passionate (two of his uncles fought in the British sectors of the D-Day invasion), and he has a great sense of humor. A fantastic visit to an overwhelming part of American history. My wife, 18-year-old son and I highly recommend Eric and D-Day Landing Tours. The absolute highlight of a wonderful trip to France.
