This tour was more than we expected. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us more than our money's worth. The experience was very moving and the guide made it even more memorable. Great job and we would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in history.
First rate tour, great value. Our guide, Jean Francoise, was OUTSTANDING! I am sure he has given this tour 100s of times but he was enthusiastic, polite, and patient. I am a buff of WWII, but came away with an even deeper appreciation of the challenges and sacrifices made by the US and our allies during the invasion of Normandy. Lots of bunkers, hardware, and weapons covered during the tour. We toured Omaha at low tide so were able to see the expanse of beach that had to be crossed until rudimentary cover could be reached. I would do this again.
The guide was highly knowedgeable, the itinerary covered everything I wanted to see, and the experience answered many questions about the combat events in which my father participated in during the Normandy campaign of 1944. It was a moving experince and I would recommend it as a must see tour.
This tour was on our agenda as it was just prior to the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landing. it was most important to both the wife and her sister as their father made the landing on the 7th. Both were very much interested in the Omaha Beach area as that Is where he came ashore. A lot of information in such a short time.
Our guide was wonderful! Francois worked well with my elderly parents and shared very interesting facts about the beaches that we did not know.
Francois, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and good humored.
Jacques Franquois was our driver/guide. He is a true historian and marvelous storyteller. Excellent trip! Recommend highly!
Our tour was great. Everything we wanted it to be. Our tour guide was the best..
we enjoyed and recommend the tour
Our tour guide Francois Gosselin was courteous, WWII D-Day knowledgeable and took us to locations where the Band of Brothers had their battles. Francois also had a binder with pictures and explained who, what, where and when. His tour was amazing!
It was awsome. I forget the young lady who was our driver but she is a 22 year old young French lady who has been giving this tour for the last 2 years. She knows her history and was very fun the whole day.
Awesome tour on every level! Our guide Francois did an amazing job during the day giving us such a great overview of the area, history, local experiences and selecting a great location for our lunch! We highly recommend this tour and be sure to request Francois! He made it such a great day for our entire group and he even added an additional destination that made it more unique! We were so amazed and just how much we got to see in one day...
We had the best time on this tour and in Bayeux. Our tour guide, Rose, did an enthusiastic tour and was obliging with photo stops and answering questions.
We arrived, unbeknown to us, on the week of the 70th D Day Landing celebrations. The extra people in town, the extra traffic and the armed forces, all added to the atmosphere of our visit.
Would recommend this tour and also to visit The Bayeux Tapestry.
Collected on time and from there on an excellent day. Our guide Kate was charming and very informative. We visit all the planned sites and the way she managed it meant we had maximum time to see things with minimum waiting. We would certainly recommend tour to others. Thanks
Jean Francoise was knowledgable, enthusiastic and entertaining. He brought the historic D-Day events to life. We highly recommend the tour.
Our guide was excellent and we had ample time to look at all the museums and the American Cemetery.
I thought the tour and guide were fantastic ! It was great to have a local girl with the local knowledge ! Sunny gave us a great insight into how it really was on d day ! Viator and your guide will be highly recommended !!!! And thanks for a great experience!!!
Interesting and informative tour - glad we did the full day. Our tour guide, Matthew, was excellent and provided a very good local perspective.
We had a wonderful tour and our guide, Sunny, was outstanding! Not only was she knowledgeable, but her personality exceeded her expertise as a guide. She was fun to be with and answered detailed questions, since several in our group had in depth knowledge about D-Day.
Despite torrential rain, we toured the beaches, bunkers, museums and cemeteries. Sobering to walk through the cemeteries and to see the youth of the men who died fighting for that ground. Pleasant knowledgeable guide who picked a wonderful place to stop for lunch.
This tour was a main highlight of my trip! We spend the whole day touring Normandy! We saw the German and American Cemeteries, Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Point du Hoc, the Airborne Museum. As a military combat veteran (2 tours in Iraq), I can't imagine what these soldiers went through. I had a wonderful tour guide who made the experience a lot more meaningful to me! I highly recommend taking a tour of Normandy..this experience should be on EVERYONE'S bucket list!!
Lucile was amazing. Excellent guide and very professional and respectful. Thank you so much.

Jean Francois picked us up promptly at our B and B. After meeting with the rest of our small, friendly group we were on our way. He was an excellent guide giving us both an overview of the history of the D-Day invasion as well as interesting and enlightening details. The tour allows time for the important sites, beaches and museums and time to explore some of the areas on your own. I don't thing we would have enjoyed the day half as much had we been on our own.
This 8 - 9 hour tour offered an excellent agenda visiting key locations of the Normandy battlefields and landmarks. I would highly recommend this tour as an early part of your visit to Normandy.
Kate Pape, our tour guide, knew her WWII history! She was thorough and answered questions in a confident, positive manner. In addition, she answered questions about local restaurants, grocery stores, and other info related to Bayeux and Port en Bessin.
I asked Kate why/ how she became so interested in WWII to which she replied that her grandfather was a young man living in Normandy during WWII. My daddy was a captain in army serving in Normandy etc. so we were able to talk about the area and events of WWII. The tour was very emotional one for myself and my family. Kate understood and could relate to this connection.
Yes, I would highly recommend this tour.
