"My heart will always be in Normandy. I am so grateful to have been able to go, and you made it so special!"
"My wife and I had a terrific time, your portion of the tour was the best. The knowledge you were able to pass on to us was incredible, but that was from an intellectual level. What truly reached us were the stories you told of individual soldiers making everything much more than just statistics."
"We are sincerely very appreciative and none more so than myself. The passion that you bring to your work is evident and it created a wonderful experience for me, on several different levels. I particularly appreciate how you humanized the people that you spoke of, because they weren't just names and faces in books, movies and carved in stone. They were real people, just like us, with family and dreams and a love of life. So, their contribution and sacrifices were also very real. It is inspiring for me to connect with the past... which formed the present and shapes the future."
"We spent two days with Rudy at Normandy. As a retired paratrooper and Ranger, I was most impressed with his preparation, including private research from the US and France on persons high and low who were participants. I appreciated as never before the men that taught me my field craft as a young lieutenant years ago. He offered the depth wanted by me and made the tour also relevant to the teenagers in the family. (three generations).. He picked us up at our lodgings and dropped us wherever we needed to be at days end. Best guide ever!!"
"I must give you a huge thank you for the time you spent with us at the museum and around Utah Beach... You are a valuable asset to the Normandie area with your vast knowledge of the events which transpired during D-Day and all the various actions in the area."
"Rudy, thank you so much! My dad still talks about you. When we're talking about the trip he'll say 'That Rudy is a dandy.'
