We are Vivian and Claude Corbin, and we run Normandy Excursions from Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. We know Normandy, we love Normandy, and we want you to see it the way it should be seen, tailored to your personal needs, tastes and budget.
Vivian is an historian specialist of the Battle
of Normandy. Since 1993, she has been searching for the remains of the Atlantic
Wall in Normandy, preparing a photographic document on the Arrogance of
Power. She was a guest of the WWII Rangers during the celebrations of the 50th Anniversary of D-Day.
Claude was born between Utah and Omaha, in the
small fishing village of
Grandcamp. His family was
active in the resistance. He has kept his Norman roots and knows about bloomy
rinds and apple musts.
Claude and Vivian return to Normandy several weeks every year, and have
accumulated a deep knowledge of the region, its history, its monuments, and of
course, its food.
