Roel and his wife Pia did an excellent job of making the events of World War 2 come to life for us. He was knowledgeable about the facts, however he was also passionate about the time and events. It meant a great deal to my...More
In our tour we not only had the benefit of Roel’s vast knowledge and passion for the historic Normandy events - we also had a very pleasant and comfortable time with Roel and his wife, Pia. Something as enormous as the landings and battles on...More
Roel came recommended from a friend that uses Victory Tours when they have a client in France. My friend did not disappoint with his recommendation. Roel was incredibly knowledgeable on all aspects of Normandy, D-Day and all things leading up to and immediately after the...More
Roel knows Normandy. My family,including our two young daughters (ages 9 & 13), spent the day with Roel and his very lovely wife Pia. While the girls had a good base knowledge of Normandy and D-Day, it all became real and meaningful with the stories...More

My husband and I spent 2 days touring the D-Day sites with Roel of Victory Tours, and we enjoyed every minute of it. D-Day was something we did for my husband (he's the WWII buff, not me), but hiring a guide was something we did...More
Upon knowing that we would be spending a couple of weeks in Paris, I purchased the Victory tour mostly for my husband who happens to be a WWII buff. Roel, pronounced Rule, communicated with us right off the batt with excellent instructions on how to...More
