WW2 sights – including Pegasus Bridge, Landing Beaches, St Nazaire, Oradour sur-Glane & the Falaise Gap 21 – 26 August 2009

“Just to say many, many thanks for a fantastic holiday on the World War 2 tour. Having never been abroad on the bike before we could not have had a better couple to show us around. The roads, hotels and food were perfect and the whole week was very professionally done, you could tell you have spent many hours researching the routes and all other aspects of the trip. What did make the holiday extra special was not only your Company but the people we met, everyone was fantastic and we haven’t laughed so much on a holiday before. It was an experience we will never forget and will definitely be back.
Once again many thanks to you both…from our point of view the week was perfect as was the company and we would recommend the trip to anyone…”
Andy & Edith Taylor (Triumph Tiger)

“Thanks again for a fantastic trip. It could not have been better in any way. It was the best fun I’ve had in years”
Ian Titman-Read (BMW K1200GT)

Pegasus Bridge elevated just for Bike Normandy guests!

“Yet again a fantastic trip. Tour started with breakfast with strangers and ended with dinner with friends. Fabulous Food. Luscious Locations. Perfectly Planned. Cracking Company. The best 6 days we’ve had in ages. Can’t wait for the next one. Great balance between time on and off the bike. Marker system worked superbly. The circus was a bonus!”
[you had to be there]
Jim & Alison Ross (BMW 1200RT)

“Thank you very much for a wonderful time on the WW2 Sights
Tour, it was superb and we haven’t stopped talking about it.
Not only have we learnt so much about the war, we have made some lovely friends and I have learnt so much about my bike and how to ride it, thanks to some very experienced riders. The whole trip has been a great education and the places we visited were of great interest. The accommodation and food were great and the marker system was ideal in keeping the group together – especially as I had ever ridden a bike abroad before. Your hospitality and organisation is second to none and if anyone is thinking of booking a bike tour then we will have no hesitation in recommending you (in fact we doubt if there could be anyone better). If we have any criticism about the tour then it is “WHY DID IT HAVE TO END?” We look forward to being accosted at the NEC Bike Show again! as we shall be booking another trip with yourselves… With very kind regards”
Barry & Lindy Jackson (Honda VFR 800)
