Welcome to Normandy

It is a privilege to have more than 20 years of experience as a guide based in Normandy. I will be honored and happy to share with you my expertise and passion for Norman history, from Roman times, the Viking invasions, William the Conqueror, the 100 Year War to the epic D-Day landing and the ensuing Battle of Normandy.

Mont Saint Michel

Normandy has so much to offer, I organize visits to elegant private chateaux, magnificent abbeys and cathedrals, enchanting gardens, the Mont Saint Michel, the Bayeux tapestry and extensive D-Day tours, covering the Canadian, British and American beachheads and battlefields. I will take you on paths known and unknown and ensure that you will have the fullest experience of Normandy within your time there.
