DOMINIQUE, YOUR PRIVATE GUIDE IN NORMANDY
Born and raised in Cherbourg, Normandy, France, where I lived until I graduated from High School, I then lived in Paris for 7 years, attending college in Paris, studies mostly focused on languages at INALCO Paris, and hosting & tourism at EIHT Paris.
I then returned to Normandy and after a few years decided to move to the USA where I stayed 5 years, one year in Colorado and 4 years in California.
Well traveled, it’s my passion for languages since childhood and strong curiosity about different cultures that had me chose the tourism industry, and the deep connection and affection for my native region brought me back « home » and for 3 years I was conducting tours of the WWII D-Day Battlefields for a highly reputable company.
Then, as of fall 2014, I have decided to become an independent guide and offer my services for a unique experience in my beloved region.
More recently, I have been dedicating my winters to studying and completed in May 2017 a University Degree in Norman History, Arts & Traditions. I am currently finishing a Bachelor's Degree in English Language, Literature & Civilization.
Beyond Normandy : I can help you plan several days in Normandy as well as in other parts of France and be with you every step of the way. Please make sure you check all the tours I can offer.
I am totally fluent in English and you can be assured there won’t be a language barrier when booking my services. I’m looking forward to meeting you !
