Roby was very knowledgeable and his passion for the history of the Battle of the Bulge is obvious. He drives you around to all the sights around Bastogne and gives you a good overall perspective of the battle as well as great details. He is very careful to be accurate in everything he tells you. He has done his own personal research of historical documents (not just relying on books by other authors) and can show you maps and pictures of the area during the time of the battle or not long afterwards. I highly recommend using Roby. He is worth every penny.

We had an excellent tour with Roby, we found him to be extremely knowledgeable of the area and he knew all of the little hidden places that had meaning. He was very proficient in English which was a must for us 4 Canadians. He was very personable, and a generous tour guide who had no problem answering unrelated questions we had about the area or discussing various subjects. He particularly enjoyed my joke that Fox company must've been really good at digging Foxholes (; He also ate lunch with us and showed us some local candy that he recommended which were very good. In the end Roby was exactly what we were looking for for our day in the Bastogne region. Would recommend him to anyone I know of going there.
Thanks again Roby for the great tour!

We recently took a day long Battle of the Bulge tour with Roby, and could not have imagined how much we would enjoy the tour. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the war and the area - and has stories and details that only a life long, dedicated local resident would have. He can speak to a wide range of related topics and provides a reference CD with tons of information and pictures so you can read for yourself later. He tailored where he took us based on our requests, and made sure we had no questions before we moved on. We highly recommend contacting him for your tour and hope you enjoy your tour as much as we enjoyed ours.

The Band of Brothers Tour was booked as a gift to my partner fro Christmas. Roby met us and we spent the entire day in awe of his in depth knowledge. To actually stand in the same streets and look at photos that were taken on that spot so long ago, you could almost feel like you were there. I would recommend the tour with Roby to anyone who has an interest in how those tiny villages were defended with such determination in such extreme conditions. -28 degrees! It was a long day but Roby knew where to get the best sandwich, free rest rooms and off the beaten track views. Great tour, great man. Thank you Roby

My wife and I toured with Roby and were exposed to over the top treatment. Roby was over the top with his knowledge, over the top with his delivery of the information, over the top with his preparation to our special request (He obviously went out of his way), and

was very friendly and easy to do business with. A ten out of ten.
