My husband and I joined three other friends for a day with Alan. He not only took us to the D-Day beaches and American cemetery. He brought to life the courage, the horror and the exceptional challenges faced by so many who gave their lives so that others could be free. Alan is one of the most knowledgeable individuals we've... More

Went on a one day tour with Alan Bryson and he was superb. So much information and detail we wish we would have booked a second day. Would most highly recommend using him.

We came to Normandy to experience and learn firsthand what challenges were faced by the Allied troops during the D-Day invasion. Allan provided an educational lesson that exceeded our expectations. Rich with detail and comprehensive in scope, we would not hesitate to recommend his tours to anyone looking for a first rate educational experience.

We visited Normandy in March 2017 & Allan was an amazing tour guide. He was very accommodating with our schedule, taking us on a tour on a Sunday & working with the train schedule from Paris. His attention to detail & recall of facts about the landing is truly remarkable. We never felt rushed & left Normandy with a much... More

My husband and I spent a week in Paris with a three day excursion to Bayeux in the middle to tour the Normandy beaches since we both love history. We found First Normandy Battlefield Tours through the Rick Steve's Paris travel guide and cross referenced on Trip Advisor, where the reviews were stellar. We were so pleased that Allan lived...

If you are considering booking a tour of the D-Day sites, really do not hesitate to book with Allan. This is a priceless experience for anyone who has interest in WWII history. My husband and I...

I have taken many historical tours in the past and by far this has been the best! My daughter and I toured the D-Day's British sector last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Taking a tour with historian took this tour to the "next level". Allan's knowledge of the battle was incredible(Order of Battle/Regimental Commanders) but was able to provide enough... More

Our family of four spent three weeks in Rome and France (Paris, Loire Valley, Normandy) in March. Our day-long tour of the D-Day sites was the highlight of our entire trip. Allan was a wonderful host. He is steeped in the history of this area. There wasn't one question he couldn't answer. We learned so much more about the events... More

Alan and his wife Tina were very accommodating and organized about reservations for our one day tour of the battlefields. Alan picked us up at our guest home and from that moment on we were back in time to the D-Day invasion. He is passionate about the subject and a wealth of information. His grasp of the history of the... More
