This was a wonderful and truly inspiring. Olivier was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to put a lot of the history and events of the day into context with the greater war history. We were also grateful to get almost an hour and a half to explore the American Cemetery and the Visitor Center on our own at the end of the tour. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone thinking of touring the Normandy area.

It was awesome. I can't begin to explain the emotions I felt when walking on Omaha Beach. To think of those brave young heroes who came ashore not knowing what to expect or if they would survive to live another day. Our tour guide was a young English born man who had lived in France most of his life. I think his name is Phillip. I couldn't have been more pleased with his commentary. He is VERY knowledgeable and showed a great deal of respect for those very important sites including the American cemetery. I will do this tour again but I want to go at low tide to see the full expanse of the beach and get a better feel for what the G.I.s actually faced when they began to come ashore about 6:30 A.M. that morning of 6/6/44. My own father, who died in early 1951, and I never knew was actually on the English channel on D-day on a Destroyer Escort whos job was to retrieve damaged landing craft and tow them back to England to be repaired. This fact made it especially important that I make this trip. All in all this tour was possibly the greates trip I have ever taken. I HIGHLY recommend it. Thank you Viator.

For a half-day tour, it was well worth it! Phillip was very knowledgeable, doing a wonderful job detailing the events of D-day. Would definitely recommend this company and tour!!! They were even flexible with a change in our pick-up location that morning. Thanks for a memorable day!

We were extremely pleased with our 1/2 day tour to Point du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American and British cemeteries. Sunny, our guide, was more than knowledgeable about the history; she was passionate about it! You can tell that being a guide is not "just a job" for her. She used photographs from D-Day, maps, and illustrations to help us understand some of the finer points. After explaining what was before us, Sunny gave us time to look around for ourselves and take photos. On the day of the tour, Sunny picked us up promptly at our B and B in Bayeux. We traveled in a comfortable van, and Sunny was an excellent driver. Though I regret that we did not take a full-day tour, I felt that we still managed to gain so much knowledge in our half day.

Adrian was excellent. Really knew his history and his way around Normandy. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and I would highly recommend for those with limited time to tour the area.

We had a wonderful tour of Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American Cemetary. Our guide was excellent. It was well worth the money and now I know I can trust Viator Tours wherever they are offered.
I highly recommend Viator!

Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgable and sweet as can be!! She picked us up right on time at our B and B and delivered us after the tour was finished. Unless you are a real WWII buff a half day was perfect.

Pick up location and time were perfect. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable, courteous, thoughtful. Her presentations were filled with respect and gratitude for the sacrifices made by the Allies as well as the French people on June 6, 1944.

She also took special care for my 86 year-old mother who uses a walker.

My wife and I took a day trip from Paris. Our guide picked us up and took us to all the important sites with plenty of time to walk around and explore them. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the historic events.
