“Eric is truly a D-Day expert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

Eric brought D-Day to life for our family of four. We all learned a lot about D-Day and even a bit about the Battle of Normandy. It's a surreal experience to stand on Utah and Omaha beaches and listen to Eric explain the battle. We found Eric to be very knowledgeable as well as an entertaining story teller. He truly gives you insight into how the events unfolded. We would highly recommend him to our friends. Thank you, Eric, for a memorable day!

“Eric Le Doux-Turnbull, is fascinatingly knowledgeable about everything to do with D-Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

October 2013: Our Guide, Eric Le Doux-Turnbull, is fascinatingly knowledgeable about everything to do with D-Day. Ask anything about the beaches, the military units involved, the time sequence of what happened, why things went well, and why some things did not go so well. Ask Eric about the windows not being broken on the house at Omaha Beach. Ask him about how the wind and the tide effected the landings. Ask Eric about the parachutist hanging from the church steeple (true or myth?). Have him tell you story after story of individual acts of heroism, funny stories of odd happenings, sad stories of things turning out badly, and stories with surprise outcomes. Ask Eric about mysterious turns of events, like a fire on one side of town that helps parachutists land safely on the other side of town, like German weapons found in places other than where they should have been positioned. Eric will amaze you with his depth of knowledge, astonish you with his research and facts, and surprise you with his humor. Bob S.

“Thank You Eric for an Amazing Day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

My wife and I hired Eric as our guide for a tour in late September, 2013, and we are so glad we did! Eric really brought the D-Day landings to life for us in a way that was exciting and also very sobering. It is a very emotional experience to stand there on Omaha Beach and hear him describe how the battle unfolded, and how so many young men lost their lives that day. Eric has an encyclopedic knowledge of the battles throughout Normandy and will be especially appreciated by clients curious about the nuances and military details of the conflict. Throughout our day people on tours with other guides kept inching their way in our direction to hear Eric, as he is a terrific story-teller, with a great, dry sense of humor.

“Great insight on DDay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Eric was just wonderful in bringing us a fantastic knowledge of the events of D DAy.
He really knows the events inside out and was able to answer all the questions from a West Point graduate and Vietnam Veteran. , Although the weather was awful we had an A+ day.
We would highly recommend Eric.

“D-Day Private Tour - American Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Awesome tour w/Eric. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about sharing the story of the D-Day landings. He was very courteous w/our party of four and took us to eat lunch at what used to be a German garrison which included a mini-tour from the German perspective. Overall, he shared great stories and gave us an excellent review of the D-Day landings on Utah and Omaha beach. I highly recommend D-Day Landing Tours and in the future would hope to take another tour w/Eric. Timothy
