What an amazing day. Our guide Franck was wonderful. He knew so much especially from having family that lived through it and growing up in the area. You could tell that he truly loves teaching others about what happened on the beaches of Normandy and the surrounding area. We never felt rushed. When the tide was high at Omaha beach he took us to another area where you could see all of the beaches. We only wish we were able to spend a lot more time in Normandy than 2 days because you could easily spend a week in the area. There are so many museums that we wish we could have seen but we had to leave for home. Our guide also took us to a Brasserie and the food was delicious. He really made our day special.
The tour guide was very informative and the sites visited were all high on my list of things to see. The time allocated at each site was adequate.
We enjoyed our tour very much! Our guide was knowledgable, friendly, and flexible!
The tour was excellent and the tour guide "Sunny" was very good. She was very good on the facts about "D Day". A very sobering experience. Highly recommended.
We had a super great time! We were able to see all the key sites related to the D-Day invasion during our day of touring. Our tour guide, Sunny, was wonderful.
The guide's family had personal encounters with the war and those little details added to the rest of the history of events made this trip remarkable. It was an experience that my husband and I will never forget. Highly recommend it!
Awesome; time went by too fast! Day was comfortable, events nicely spaced and varied. Oc course, the beaches at Normany hold their own importance. A "never forget" experience.
Tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and even shared extra sites after our allotted time. I wish I remebered his name, but it's been about a month since the tour! This is a must see for all battlefield and WW11 enthusiasts. But, the area is so beautiful everyone can enjoy it.
The tour was exactly what we wanted to do and learn about!
Our guide was fantastic!! He was a young man but had great knowledge about the battles that occurred and explained everything well. Most of us were older couples and he was very patient in giving us time to do things though it was a difficult situation because half of the group was English speakers and the other half spoke only French.
He picked us up at the hotel which was also a big plus.
We highly recommend it!
I've been to the beaches before on self guided tour and enjoyed it, but having a well versed guide take you around to the key areas was much better. The back roads to many of the locations are not readily apparent and thus would be missed. I strongly recommend using this type og service.
I can't say enough good things about this tour. Phillip was an outstanding guide, he was extremely knowledgeable but let us have time to observe as well without yapping our ears off. This tour marks one of the best days of my summer.
What an unbelievable experience! Matthew was an outstanding guide. The tour started at a German cemetery, then progressed to St. Mere Eglise, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach and finally the American cemetery. I learned so much from my tour guide; it accomplished exactly what I hoped for-it brought the history back to life. I would have enjoyed more time at Omaha Beach and the American cemetery but it was nice to have a guide to pace the day along to ensure that you maximized your time. Only 6 people were on the tour which made it very warm and personalized. I don't believe the tour would ever have more then 8 people. They were prompt to pick us up at the train station and they dropped us off on time to catch our train. They also had room to store our bags during the tour. One of the highlights of my trip to Europe!!
Had to go to Normandy to pay tribute to those who were sacrificed on d-day at the beaches. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, and the tour covered it all. I would have liked to have spent more time at the American cemetery's, but it was great day. Thank you.
