Great tour! We really enjoyed this full day tour with our guide Anne-Sophia. I am well-read on WWII history and the Normandy invasion and our guide provided explanations were historically correct, always very clear and complete. I highly recommend this full day tour, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent day tour. The pace was somewhat leisurely and our guide was extremely informative. This is the second time I've taken this tour, and both times I came away much more knowledgable about the planning and implementation of D-Day.
We had a fantastic tour with Francois. He was very informative and interesting. Taking a tour is definitely the way to see the battlefield sites--there are so many things that are out of the way and easy to miss. We had four adults and two children in our group and all of us really enjoyed it. It was foggy the day we went, but that just made it more atmospheric! The trip is well worth the price!
Excellent tour. Our guide Francois was very knowledgeable and passionate. We enjoyed every moment. Highly recommend.
Wow! What a tour and Francois was the best I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Tour was excellent!! The guide, Avi, was informative, funny and charming. I will definitely check out Viatour for future trips.
Excellent Tour! Guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting antidotes during the tour concerning the personalities and military situations involved in the landing.Good site selections. Highly recommended.
Our guide, Adrian, at age 24 was surprisingly knowledgeable and experienced, with good English. He cleverly guided our party of 8 to sites and out-of-the-ordinary places that avoided multiple buses and queues. He had appropriate anecdotes that enhanced the facts, making daunting vistas more intimate and colorful. He helpfully went "the extra mile" to guide us to a friend's grave site. He quickly sensed individual interests, which everyone appreciated. He kept us moving with digniity and cleverness beyond his years. At the end of a long day, we all found the experience well worth the price.
Our guide was absolutely amazing, her local and intimate knowledge of all D-Day spots and events made the whole day the HIGHLIGHT of our trip to France. She especially brought a personal touch with letting us know how she takes care of several gravesights at the American cemetery and her involvement with those families. The incredible small details. especially at Omaha beach gave me a much better understanding of what went on there. A neighbor that lives down the street from us broke into tears at a recent dinner, as I was recounting the time at Omaha beach. Her father was one of the 10% that lived, as he was in the first assault landing at Omaha. I would not have known the high casualty rate but for our guides knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you.
Mag was an excellent tour Director. I would highly recommend her and Viator tours

We truly enjoyed this tour! Francois, our guide, did an amazing job. Despite the fact that half of our group spoke French and Francois had to give the tour in two languages! He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the locations and history of D-Day event!! The tour was everything we had hoped and more. We were given ample time to explore each location. Every spot we visited was rich with history. We enjoyed our lunch stop! It was a moving and wonderful tour which we would definitely recommend to others!!
This tour was perfect for both me and my wife. It covered what I wanted to see, but was not too long for her. Our guide, Francoise, was outstanding - personable and knowledgable.
Small van tour with 8 guests.very knowledgeable guide and driver that provided an over view of Operation Overload to provide context for the invasion of Omaha and Utah Beaches. He also provided anecdotal stories about individuals that made a special sacrifices necessary to achieve the overall mission. He made it real and I misted up a couple of times.
