We took the train from Paris to Caen and we were met at the station by our guide Eric, a fabulous French Canadian guy who was amazing throughout the whole day. We had specifically asked for a private tour and to see places relevant to the British as we only had a day (minus 2 hours as it was a Sunday). We went to Pegasus Bridge and the memorial museum there, we then left and visited the second largest commonwealth cemetery in Normandy, from there we travelled to several other locations and went deeper into some very personal stories of some real war heroes. Eric totally understood what we were looking for, we went off the normal tourist must see's and saw the things that made it all 'personal' and left feeling that we knew the men he told us about, how brave they were and how their courage led to our freedom - they say less we forget..... well as we shook hands with Eric as we arrived at Bayeux for our train journey back to Paris both my husband and I said we will NEVER forget that day.... if you can PLEASE make this trip - use this guy and let him make everything real for you too! - AMAZING!!!!!
