If we could give 10 stars, we would! From the moment we were picked up at our hotel, the day was beyond our expectations. Dave, our guide, was informative, humorous, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and lot of fun! The itinerary was perfect, the small group was convenient, the choices of restaurants for morning tea and lunch were fabulous. The ferry ride back was the perfect end to a perfect day. Some other people in our group took the large group excursion and were moderately happy. We HIGHLY recommend this excursion!
This was so much more than we expected! We were so well cared for! The bus to the Seine to the Eiffel Tower to the Moulin Rouge was comfortable with a friendly host. We actually were prepared for a less-than-mediocre dinner on the river cruise. It was a lovely meal with wine included! What a thrill to see Notre Dame and then back to the Eiffel Tower in time for its illumination. We skipped the lines at the Eiffel Tower and had perfect weather for viewing. Yes, there was a line at the Moulin Rouge, and the show itself was crowded (US Fire Marshals would be horrified) but it was thrilling!!!! Then, we were transported right to our hotel's front door. Thank you for a wonderfully memorable experience.
I would give this tour 10 stars if I could! David, our driver/guide picked us up at our hotel at 6:30 a.m. in an 8-passenger Mercedes Van. His knowledge of the Paris, Normandy area, the battleground sites, etc. was extraordinary! We stopped half-way there for a bathroom/coffee break; very considerate! The beaches, cemetery, memorials, etc. we saw were such a moving/emotional experience. David made it come alive for us! To think that the events that took place here 70 years ago completely changed our world! Lunch near the village of Crepon at Ferme de la Raconniere was one of the best meals we had on our entire 12-day trip! Thank you so much for a fabulous and educational and fun day!
