Cressida has always had a passion for travel, and after studying Travel and Tourism Management, went to work overseas as a tour leader for an adventure travel company in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Morocco and China.

When it was time to settle down she moved back home to Normandy, and set up Normandy Sightseeing Services.  Cressida saw a niche in the market to offer clients a luxury bespoke, personal  insight to Normandy, with a native English speaking guide.

Cressida conducts all the cultural tours, a one day American Sector tour (an overview to D-Day), the transfers to and from Normandy, along with the bookings and administration for the company.  Cressida is very happy to advise clients on any part of their trip to Normandy, as planning is key to having a hassle free vacation.

Cressida has been very fortunate to have the best teachers on D-Day, her father Major General Hollands and Her Grandfather Major Ernest Hollands DSC, DCM who features in many WWII accounts of the British in France, North Africa and Italy, he was recogonised as one of the British “Tank Alies” of WWII.

Cressida has 23 years of working in the travel industry as guides, and enjoy working as a team.  I have 4 bilingual children.

I have never expanded the company as I feel that you would lose the personal service and attention to detail that has given Normandy Sightseeing Services the reputation that I have today.
