One of best tours ever! Excellant guide, was able to paint a picture of all he spoke of. Highly recommend. I do want to mention this, to help prevent a moment of anxiety that we experienced: we met at the train station in bayeux. If facing the train station, there is a free parking lot just to the left. Get a parking ticket and place in dash, but it is free first 24 hrs.Then meet your group, a small mini van in front of train station, but they don't have a VIATORT sign. Just stand around and look like you are looking for someone. Lastly, our van was 18 mins late so we thought we missed it or that it was a hoax, but they got behind with stops at hotels. Prepare for this tidbits, and you will have a great day! Once we got on in the van, the rest of the day was much more than even anticipated! Robin and Terry, Arvada Colorado
Sonny, our guide, was superb!. She did all the driving from site to site and gave a detailed explanation for each of those sites along with little known details that only an excellent tour guide could provide. Through Sonny's efforts, this tour was the highlight of our visit to Normandy. Sonny is a real asset to her company. Thank you, Sonny, for a job well done.
Our tour guide (Francis) was a font of knowledge concerning the history and geography of the area. He also included great color on the various personal stories that effected the invasion. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone who desires an in depth tour that compresses two days into one.
A terrific tour with an excellent guide who compressed a two day tour into one day. Highly recommend taking this tour.
A great tour guide provided us with an in depth tour of the invasion area including the American, German and British cemeteries, very impressive. Highly recommend this tour
We had a fantastic tour of the American Battlefields of Normandy. The tour consisted of 8 people in a mini van. We were all picked up at our hotels by our guide Sarah. She was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the history of Normandy. Her telling of the events that transpired at each of the sights we saw made it all seem to come to life, so we could almost see and feel exactly what went on there. Sarah took us to the German Cemetery as well, so we could see the contrast to the American Cemetery. We visited the small village of St. Mere Iglise which the Americans liberated. We saw Utah beach, Pt. du Hok, Omaha beach and the American Cemetery. Half way through the tour, we stopped at a cute little fishing village for lunch. At the end of the tour, we were taken back to our hotel. It was a wonderful day with a fantastic tour guide. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was fantastic. Knowledgable and thorough and taught us so much. Highly recommend this tour. If you go on a Sunday, note that some of the museums might be closed which was a bit of a bummer. Great tour!
We had an excellent guise who was VERY knowledgable. We really enjoyed the tour!
Excellent! Our guide Mag was knowledgable and had a few "off the beat and path" things to show us.
This tour was so informative! Elized, our guide was full of knowledge about the occupation and liberation of Normandy. We learned so much about the D-day invasion. Elized was so much fun and her enthusiasm made for a delightful experience that I would completely recommend this tour.
Awesome!! Our tour guide Mac was amazing. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Normandy area and interested in the american sites. It was wonderful!!
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.
