Peter is a wonderful and informative guide. The choir ladies and families enjoyed immensely. Normandy has been emotional and looking forward to our next encounter.

My 24 year old son and I went on a 4 day tour with Peter to visit the D-Day beaches and to follow in the footsteps of the "Band of Brothers" (Easy Company/506th Parachute Infantry/101st Airborne Division) who parachuted into Normandy on the eve of the invasion. Being a history buff, I thought that I had a good understanding of that fateful day. However, Peter's remarkable knowledge and storytelling ability made us feel like we went back in time to experience the landings first hand. Knowing I was particularly interested in Easy Co's battles, Peter did his homework and guided us through every village and battlefield that they fought in during the campaign. Once again his knowledge and ability to recount their story made it feel like we were truly in their footsteps. Peter provided first class transportation and accomodations during our visit which really set us at ease so that we could enjoy our trip. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who wants to take a similar tour. He is genuinely friendly and affable and he obviously does his homework so that you get both the big picture and the details regarding the events of interest. His storytelling ability really made the tour fun and educational. Thank you Peter. I hope to be able to do another tour with you in the future!

Having previously taken a WWI trip with Peter, I knew want to expect from him, but he surpassed my expectations. My trip, with a group of fellow City of Westminster Guides, was fantastic. We hit the beaches of Dunkirk and relived those fateful days when the BEF were retreating from France in 1940, and then toured the Ardennes following the course of the Battle of the Bulge. As always, the logistics and arrangements (carried out with military precision) went well and the chosen hotels were comfortable and very centrally located. Where Peter really comes into his own though, and stands above other battlefield guides, is in his personable manner, outstanding knowledge and relaxed delivery style. He shows you places that you just would not find on your own and tells you tales of bravery and sadness that make you proud and also make you cry. He is a fantastic storyteller that really brings history alive. I cannot wait for the next trip we do!

We are a tour guiding association from the City of Westminster London and we have used Peter of Single Step Tours twice before to guide us around WW1 and WW2 battlefields. This year we went to the beaches of Dunkirk to follow the evacuation and then onto Belgium to follow the route of the Battle of the Bulge December 1944. Peter knows his history very well but for us he brings it to life by the stories of individuals who fought and often died, in these conflicts. As before the tour was excellently arranged and conducted with Peter's drole humour. It was great 4 days and I would recommend anyone thinking of touring the northern Europe battlefields to hire Peter as their guide.

Peter managed to optimize a trip to Dunkirk for a 15 year old boy and a curious dad, both wanting to delve into their family history. As planned, he took care of all the details, but so much more than this, he was our own personal commentator and teacher. I felt like I was listening to/watching the history channel with all of his anecdotes and passion he brought to the tour. The first line my teenager said after the trip was over was "can we do Normandy with Peter". That says it all. Besides inspiring my teenager, we had a lovely 24+ hours with Peter including some excellent, relaxing local meals (local Flemish beer included -- Peter did not partake when driving, of course) in between taking in the history of the area. Peter is awesome -- don't hesitate to work with him. Not only will he take care of everything, you will come away with both the big picture of war/battles and the stories of the individuals that made it up. Finally, I should add, Peter took the time to research our own family history of the regiment my grandfather served in -- and tailored parts of the trip to it (even trying to estimate the locations of his movements based on his battalion). I can't wait to do another trip with him -- nor can my teen!
