Danielle A very belated thank you for a fantastic tour of the Normandy beaches.  We really thought you did an excellent job and will recommend you to anyone we know who is looking for a guide.  Your personal insight into that period really added to our understanding and appreciation of what was going on and what the people of France were enduring.
We thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our trip but our time with you was certainly a highlight.Again - Thanks so much. Susan Senter

We really enjoyed our time with you.

Danielle, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful tour yesterday!  It was everything we had hoped for and more.  Fred was right - it was better than William's because you were able to give us a flavor of Normandie in addition to information on the landing sites.
 We appreciated hearing about the people and culture
Thank you! Best regards, Priscilla (and Fred, Stephen, and Claire)

Dear Danielle-
Thank you very much for the wonderful tour last Sunday. Your
knowledge and insight really helped us appreciate the history and area
much better. We especially are grateful to you for accommodating our
request to visit Utah Beach, even though that was not what you had planned.
My father had a wonderful trip and we all learned things about the invasion that were new
(yes, even him!).
Any visitors to the Normandy area would be lucky to have you for a guide.
Kind regards, Mary Beth Errington

Danielle, Well, I made it back to Dallas. 
The highlight of my 12 day trip through France, Hungary, and The Czech Republic
was my time touring The D-Day experience with you.
  You helped bring to life the incredible journey of our brave young heroes
(My Dad served in The Navy in WW2).Tomorrow night I have the honor of sponsoring and speaking
to a group,The Daughters of WW2. 
The program is aimed at recognizing liberators and Holocaust survivors
(My Mother and Father-In -Law). 
I will speak with confidence and passion as a credible source having seen
first  hand the hallowed grounds of D-Day. Thank you again for helping create a truly memorable and meaningful experience that I will treasure for the rest of my life.  I am proud to be a Jewish American.All The Best, Kenny Goldberg

Merci, merci, merci from the Birdsongs.  Your tour of the Normandy area was the highlight
of our trip.  We hope you got some rest after your next days tour.
  We took your advice and went to Le Relais de Venise.  Fantastic. 
I found this link online for the secret sauce. 
I am sure there is no substitute for the real thing, but wanted to pass this on.

Bonjour, Danielle!
Thank you again for our tour fantastique! We had a wonderful time with you and we will think of you when
we recall our time in the invasion zone. What a marvelous experience.
I am touching base with you today to provide my email address to which
I'd like to ask you to send your picnic photo from Cresbecq. That was one of the best picnics ever!
I have already told some friends about your talent and your family history. I would love them
to enjoy a similar experience if and when they come to Normandy.
We also enjoyed the coastal road to St Malo from Mont St Michel and strayed
from the trail to have lunch in Dol de Bretagne. Beautiful. Thanks for your great suggestions.
Au revoir, Danielle. Et merci, encore!

Danielle, just a quick note to express appreciation for guiding us through Normandy. The trip with Chuck and Chris was every thing I had hoped for and more. They really liked you and you had just the right agenda for us.
They enjoyed seeing the country side and little towns nearly as much as the beach areas.
You are a wonderful Ambassador for France and the Normandy area.
Hope your new car is everything you hoped for There is no telling what you can do with a GPS.
I find myself arguing with mine.We will follow your web page to see if we make it on there.
Please feel free to use us as a reference if needed
Best wishes.

(Below what this client sent to Trip Advisor & Cruise Review)
If you are looking for a great tour guide in Normandy I recommend Danielle Duboscq. We recently returned from a trip that fulfilled my Dad’s lifelong dream of visiting the landing beaches in Normandy.  I asked for an awful lot from Danielle and she delivered a truly special day, picking us up at our cruise ship and taking us to St. Mere Eglise, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, the American Military Cemetery and the Mulberry Harbor at Arromanches.  Throughout the 10 hour tour, Danielle was a delightful fountain of information.  She is a native of the region (an American soldier actually took her mother to the hospital when she gave birth to Danielle) and I doubt there is anyone who knows more about Normandy and the surrounding area than Danielle.  She speaks impeccable English, and has spent her entire life in the travel, hotel and tourism industry, much of it in the United States. She also took us to a wonderful local restaurant for lunch.  Her son is also a guide and grew up in the US.  Among Danielle’s former clients: Tom Brokaw, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg along with legions of returning veterans.  My Dad continues to rave about what a great tour Danielle provided us and the perspective the tour gave him of the heroic efforts of the Allied troops on D-Day. Danielle can be reached at danielle-duboscq@wanadoo.fr and you can learn more about her on her website www.normandyours.com.  If you have any questions for me I would be glad to answer them at Jacknolan17@yahoo.com.

Danielle,
We found your website and wanted to pass along our most sincere thanks for the great tour of the Normandy Beaches. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to France! You were so wonderful... so patient and accommodating and we greatly appreciated it. You really made the beaches come alive for us by sharing so much of your knowledge. We also greatly appreciated all your time in driving us to Cherbourg. It was a cute town with nice little shops but one night's stay was enough for us. If you ever find yourself in Washington, D.C., please let us know. We would love to have you to our home. Again, many thanks for all your kindness and best wishes to you always,

Jennifer and Mark de Bernardo

Hi Danielle,

We are finally back and settled and I wanted to let you know that your tour was a real hightlight of our travels-you truly made history come alive for all us (and I still have goosebumps from all your stories). Thanks also for packing SO much in to our day-I cannot imagine missing any of it and the bayeux tapestry was a wonderful addition. I hope your wrist is OK-we were worried it might be fractured. Thanks again for everything,

Stephanie for all of us (Michael, Jacqueline and Jonathan
