We had a wonderful experience during our day with the knowledgeable, personable Roel Klinkhamer for a tour of Normandy D Day landing beaches. He has so much interesting information to share. Over the years he has gleaned more information from the vets he has taken on his tours and has added their stories to his narrative. The pace was perfect.... More

Did you know the beaches of Normandie extend for 55 miles. For two full days we toured with Victory Tours, solely owned and operated by Roel Klinkhamer. From Arromanches to Ste Mere Eglise we relived D-Day and the days following. At Omaha Beach we truly felt we were on hallowed ground. His many years of leading tours provide all participants...

The operator, Roel, was well informed and knew his history, but his delivery and rapport with the customers was lacking. Questions were invariably answered with: "I'll get to that" or worse "I've already covered that." The first thing he did was to take orders for a sandwich picnic lunch which offered 2 choices of sandwiches, a drink and chips if... More

Roel Klinkhamer's tour was exceptional. He is extremely knowledgeable, has wonderful stories of veterans he has met and he has a wonderful wit that makes the day both a learning and pleasurable experience. We were a group of four and we booked the tour from Roel's website with no problem. He actually picked us up at our hotel. He has... More

Roel Klinkhamer's tour was the highlight of our trip to France! He had incredible stories from veterans he has hosted over the years and his passion for this important history made our tour one we will not soon forget. If you are going to Normandy, you absolutely should book a Victory Tour with Roel!

Roel Klinkhamer was an excellent guide with accurate and easy to listen to commentary. Well researched with the added advantage of having talked with many vets over time. Highly recommended

Our experience with Mr. Roel Klinkhamer's Victory Tours was an excellent one. Booking a private tour online from the US for the four people in our group was no problem, and his website was very informative. Even though on the appointed day our train from Caen/Paris was delayed, Roel was still there waiting for us at the Bayeux train station,... More

mr. Roel Klinkhamer is probably one of the best tour guides to visit the Normandy beaches. The passion is obvious when he speaks on his intercom system in the bus about the great war effort the allies have made. Clear voice and supported with meetings Roel had with the old veterans you'll experience it all over again.

The best way to really see the beaches of Normandy. Roel Klinkhamer and Victory Tours are the way to do it. From the time he picked the four of us up in the morning until he dropped us off after a full day's tour he provided us with a wealth of information about the D-Day landings. He is passionate about... More

Roel is as good as it gets. He loves history and is very passionate about it. He will bring you to places you would never see if you were on one of the big tour buses. One of the people in my group had a grandfather who stormed the beaches, so Roel went out of his way to take her... More
