Hand Maid Tours - France, Normandy tours


Hand Maid Tours are operated and organised by John Flaherty who is English/Irish, and has known France for many years. 

I trained as a Industrial Archaeologist, specialising in the German Fortifications. I have lived in Normandy for a over 19 years. My first tours of Normandy were over twenty five years ago.

The history of the occupation and liberation of Normandy is my passion, and over the years I have been honoured to have had many veterans take my tours

and I pass on their tales and experiences to our visitors. American Ambassadors and Governors have also toured with me. 

I only organise private tours with a maximum of six visitors on each tour, this enables me to get to know our guests and make your stay in our part of France special.

The tours are taken at a leisurely pace with time to stop, explore and photograph each of the sites

 Also included is a Hand Maid Tours guide book for each of your days with us.


I also try to give you a flavour of Normandy by trying different regional foods during your time with me.

I can be contacted by mail or by sending an email to johnf0236@gmail.com
