The tour with Johann was absolutely amazing and surpassed all of my expectations!! He tells stories of individual soldier’s experiences to paint a picture for you at each location. He is incredibly knowledgeable and was able to answer every random question my boyfriend had. After the tour, he invited us out for drinks with his friends and we loved meeting his friends and getting to know him better. Our whole day with Johann was nothing short of spectacular. I cannot recommend him enough!! The stories he tells and history he provides makes the locations become alive in ways that visiting it alone could never do.

Fantastic guide - we have had guides all over Europe and Johann was the best. He is knowledgeable beyond equal, caring, thoughtful and fun.

Johann transported us back to D-day. We were just amazed of his story telling and information he shared with us. To say he is a history buff is just the tip of the iceberg. Do yourself a favor and make sure you book him for a full day because there is so much to see and talk about. The day flew by and since we left him we are still discussing the stories he shared with us. Truly an amazing tour and we appreciate you so much. Thanks for being part of our Normandy visit.

This was easily the best historical tour I have ever done. Johann is a wonderful person and has found his calling! His extensive knowledge of history and D-DAY personal stories are amazing. Highly highly recommend. He brings WW2 back to life while you take in all of the sites. Incredible, thank you Johann.

Johann is an absolutely amazing historian and an even better human being. This was, without question, the best tour we've been on throughout our European travels. His stories were captivating and really hit on the human aspects of WWII. Do not hesitate to book. Seriously, stop thinking about it and book it. Thanks for what you do Johann!

Wow! What a great tour! We booked this tour as a gift for our "WWII buff" sons. Not only did we learn more about the history of D-Day, we were captivated by the stories told by Johann. Some were devastating, some were heart warming! We were brought back in time and felt a connection to the history. Thank you, Johann for an Amzing Day!!
