One of the best tours ever

Reviewed March 2, 2020

I initially planned to spend one day touring the D Day beaches.  Adrian recommended more, as there was so much to see - and boy, was he right!  The day and a half that I spent with Adrian on both the British and American sectors was truly epic and is one of the great experiences I have had.  His knowledge of the individual stories and grand strategy, weapons, tactics and personalities made the whole period come alive.  To have stood on the beaches and to have seen what those brave men fought through was humbling and inspiring - made all the more so by Adrian.  He puts everything into the tour - and time sped by.  Our full day was from before 9am to after 630pm - only darkness slowed him down!  Thank you Adrian!

Normandy with an expert - Adrian!

Reviewed June 22, 2019

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Normandy with Adrian. Knowledgeable about the strategic,  operational, and tactical aspects of Normandy  and WWII. He was engaging and incredibly informative. Was very efficient at showing the keys to the battles.

Really fantastic time

I did the two day tour with Adrian, and it was worth every penny. I learned so much that I didnt know, brought me to areas which I didnt know existed, and he helped me find information about my great-great uncle who was on Omaha beach. I cannot recommend Adrian more highly!

Adrian has a unique background for guiding one through Normandy. Combine British military experience with a passion for living in Normandy and six years of guiding, time spent in Adrian's care will leave your head spinning with all the facts and background tales you can absorb. 

Adrian endeavours to customize your tour to your interests. 

PS. One  day is not enough.

Far Beyond our Expectations

Reviewed June 13, 2018

I reached out to Adrian as my mother had invited some friends from the US to have a once in a lifetime experience of Normany and specifically the D-Day landings. I booked it for them as I had known Adrian for many years prior to this albeit in a completely different capacity. The key was that this had to be very special, as this was for my mother and some lifelong friends of hers. As this was a very small group (3), Adrian proposed to pick my mother and her two friends at their hotel in his car, which he did. He arrived ahead of time in fact. He then had proposed a UK tour or US tour and we chose the US for obvious reasons. The tour lasted an entire day and included a number of stops for lunch and coffee which was important given the age of my parents and her friends. 

After their tour, I spoke to my mother who was tremendously happy with her day. So much so, that she wanted to make sure I gave Adrian her feedback. I thought that I would use that same feedback in this review. Her feedback was: (a) "It was far beyond our expectations", (b)"Adrian is very knoweldgeable and we would not have known a quarter of it had he not been there to explain" And finally she asked me to tell him that: (c) "he was a real gentleman". 

I wanted this to be very special experience.........and Adrian delivered!

It was my pleasure to deliver this tour... I realise that over 10 hours makes it a long day but you will agree any shorter and a lot would have been missed out!
