    I had the best time, the tour guide was so friendly and personable. We talked about everything from the history, our families and jobs, the economy, pretty much everything under the sun which I really enjoyed.

    manuel and thierry are a lot of fun and full of local history and knowledge; and the bikes were great fun!
    Awesome experience

    It was a fantastic day. Manuel was the best!! Highly recommend it! Seeing the places where the Longest day occurred were unbelievable and no wonder those men were called the Greatest generation.
    Incredible! No better way to explore Normandie.

    We had the most spectacular day with Thierry, our guide and very capable sidecar driver. He was smart, funny, engaging and very knowledgeable about the area. We absolutely loved the sidecar and the personal tour, Thierry was very knowledgeable of the war and had answers for our many questions. Thierry even took us on some beautiful back roads where we had the opportunity to see France’s beautiful countryside. Thank you for an incredible, unforgettable day - surely a highlight of our journey!
    Awesome day!

    What an adventure! No better way to do a D-Day/WWII tour! Manuel was so awesome and full of great information! Thank you Manuel! We will be back and look forward to doing other tours via sidecar.
    Great Trip with Jerry

    This was the most fun thing my 18 year old Som and I did in Normandy. After two days of in-depth history tours, cruising around Normandy with Jerry, seeing all the towns and also historical sites we did not see on the tours was incredible. Jerry was a great guide, very knowledgeable and incredibly nice. You want Jerry to drive you. I cannot imagine anyone better. If ever go back to Normandy, I will do this again!
    Superb unique interesting and worth every penny.

    There’s no question if you’re going to go to Normandy this is the tour to take. Sitting on a bus (on again off again) is nice but this is extraordinary and more interesting. To be in the open air all afternoon with a fabulous knowledgeable tour guide on the retro motorcycle and bucket seat was unique. Perfect for my 22 year old and me, her mom.
    Nice ride

    The sidecar was a blast. Our guide was very nice but didn’t know as much as we would have liked. We were there on D day so we had a lot of closed roads and traffic, but that’s to be expected.
    Un grand Merci 🙏

    Un grand Merci à Manuel de nous avoir fait voyager à travers le temps nourrit de ses connaissances sur l’histoire du débarquement. Belle continuation et peut être @ bientôt dans nos montagnes 😉 Samira , Thierry et notre Loulou : Shallow
