Completed a one-day trip with Rene on the 4th of July. Had three other gentlemen with us from Oregon who were Band of Brothers fans as well which made for a nice trip. We were able to talk "shop" and add highlights to the trip. Though several things were not on the tour, Rene recognized how passionate we were about History and took extra time to show us the sites we so longed to see. When Rene picked us up, I asked him about where Richard Winters had led the charge into Carentan, much to my surprise and pleasure, he immediately whipped us around to the exact spot and even stopped by the aid station that was established on the morning of the attack. The highlight was when Rene stopped by the Leadership Monument and allowed us to get some pictures. Honestly, if I had not been given the opportunity to see this monument, the trip would have been somewhat disappointing. I do feel that a little too much time is spent at the museum but on many tours it is probably necessary. Our group already had a wealth of knowledge that the museum really did not add much to. According to one of our travel mates who had taken a D-Day tour before, Rene offered so much more than any other group he knew of. We were not disappointed and the trip met and in many instances exceeded the expectations of a former Advanced Placement U.S. History teacher and Band of Brothers enthusiast. Highly recommend this tour group.
