Great overview of the area that hit the highlights of the area for just the right amount of time. Our tour guide was fantastic, she had been raised in the area which gave her excellent local knowledge.
Francois was a very informative and entertaining tour guide. This is a tour our family will NEVER forget. Thank you for making it so memorable.
My husband, parents, preschooler, and I had a wonderful time on our tour with Romain. As luck would have it, the other two people scheduled for the tour cancelled at the last minute, so it was just the five of us. This came in handy when the three-year-old melted down halfway through, and we needed to take a small break to eat chips from the van at Omaha Beach. Three might be a little young for the tour. Romain, who spoke fluent English, gave much more detail about each of the sites we visited than we could have learned from the posted placards, and even told family stories from the German Occupation and Allied Liberation. At the end of the tour, he drove us back to Bayeux through narrow local roads that our rental-car GPS would never have found, which gave a much better idea of what terrain the Allies fought through in 1945 than the modern highways. We spent the rest of the evening talking about how happy we were to have taken the guided tour, rather than going to all of the sites on our own.
Our guide, Mag I believe, was wonderful. She was very knowledgable, took us to several places of interest, was very personable and the small group was perfect. It was easy to be picked up, and the trip itself was so interesting. It was nice that she was from the area so was able to give us backrground knowledge of the towns and how they were affected. This is the way to do the trip in a small, airconditioned van! The American Cemetary was very moving. Since my father had been at Utah beach and in the area, it was emotional for me and she made sure to ask if anyone had connections there. I would highly recommend this trip!
great experience Romeo was very informative and very friendly
Couldnt have booked a better tourguide!!!
Brilliant and very informative day!
I highly recommend this half-day tour of the Normandy Beaches. Our tour guide was very professional and knowledgeable concerning the D-Day invasion.
My family loved this tour. Our tour guide Kate was great. We especially enjoyed her personal stories as she grew up in Bayeux and her family lived through the war. We were all humbled by seeing this beautiful area and knowing what happened there.
Kate was wonderfully engaging. Her enthusiasm for the subject, born out of her personal family experience was very contagious. She was kind enough to pick us up and drop us off at the Bayeux train station, otherwise we could not have gone when we did. It also gave us the opportunity to experience the French rails as opposed to driving in a bus.
Our guide, Kate, was very knowledgeable on the topic. We really enjoyed this tour!
Guide was one of our best we have ever had. Only bad thing was too many people in the van. It was very tight and uncomfortable.
Our tour was everything we hoped it would be. Our guide, Mattieu, was delightful and so knowledgeable. We learned much. A beautiful, inspirational and memorable day. Merci beaucoup. Sally Graves
What a fabulous experience! Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the afternoon that more interesting -
The guide was outstanding! Informed, passionate, professional.... He could not have been better. Thank you!
Our guide was very professional and deep in knowledge. We hit all the highlights and even an off-the-beaten-path surprise. It was well worth the cost.
My husband and I had the pleasure of a half-day afternoon tour with Adrian. He was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, and funny. He did an excellent job polling the group for interest in certain topics and ensuring that we had a wonderful time. The weather was not great, so he made some great adjustments to accommodate: some informational pieces were in the very large, comfortable van, others inside bunkers at Pont du'Hoc, and umbrellas were offered when we were outside. He took extra steps to make sure we got to see some hidden features and sites, and as a result, we had an amazing time. I can't stop telling everyone to take this tour!
Our lady guide, Sunnie was informative and explained the details of Omaha beach and Pointe du Hoc, etc. very vidvidly. The US army cementary is a very touching place. But we expected a scene which was mentioned in other tours with a soldier landed and stuck on a tree, etc. Wish the tour a bit longer.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we were fortunate to have a few extra stops included.
Very good tour. We got lots of detailed information about the sites and the times. Francois is a knowledgeable and helpful guide. He knew we were disappointed not to join the Canadian tour, so he gave us some additional insights into that aspect
As a history teacher and first-time visitor to France, I can't tell you how fascinating it was to see Bayeux and tour around the Normandy landings. My tour guide, Antoine, was very knowledgeable on the subject and took the time to answer all our questions! Would recommend this tour in a heartbeat!
Our guide, Francois, was excellent. He brought high energy and a detailed knowledge of the Normandy invasion to our tour. His approach of questions/answers kept our two teenagers engaged and having fun! In addition to the stops common to most Normandy tours, Francois led us to explore more remote bunkers and fortifications that other tours don't see based on the vegetation overgrowth, not very many people see what we did, making the experience all the more memorable!
