The Normandy tour was terrific. Francois was our guide and his knowledge and presentation of the area and the events was very thorough. We also appreciated his enthusiasm for his job. Great tour.
A story around every corner. Without a tour guide you'll miss 90% of these exciting stories. It was great when the tour guide held up pictures and maps to explain things better.
This tour was well done. To start, it was on time. The guide was quite knowledgeable, and also impressively respectful of all who lost or risked their lives on that terrible day for the sake of freedom. He provided visual aids, allowed for free exploration, and took us to some places that were not included in other tours which made quite an impression. I would definitely recommend.
The tour was wonderfull, we were picked up at our hotel in Bayuex right on time with 8 of us on the tour, our guide I think his name was Francuer or something kike that spoke good english and was very knowledgable about everything he showed us, he even sliped in a couple of stops that were not on the itinerary. He was also very concientous about getting thse who had come by train back to the station in time for the return to Paris. Highly recomend. Arne and Erna from Seattle Wa. USA
We had a great time. Excellent guide. If anything we should have booked a full day tour.
Guide was on time. Proved to be courteous, knowledgeable and professional. Very useful to travel with someone who knows where to stop for washrooms! Great to not have to worry about where to park and what places were the best to visit within a short timeline. Not enough time for the ardent ameteur historian, but an excellent slummary of key US sites (beach, cemetary and overlooking German positions) for the first time visitor or those who want a nice overview. I highly recomend this tour to those who only have half a day available.
Excellent tour! Our guide, Jonathan, promptly picked us up at our B and B and he was knowledgeable and entertaining. The visit to the American Cemetary was moving.
My guide, Matt, was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. He not only talked to us about the tour info but on the drip he explained many other interesting facts as well. The tour itself was amazing and the guide spoke near perfect english!
David was a fantastic guide! His enthusiasm, knowledge, personal perspective and use of pictures brought life to the description of events. Absolutely recommend it.
My husband and I loved this half-day tour. We only had a day to spend in Bayeux and we felt lucky to get such a great half-day tour of the beaches. Most of that was due to the fantastic tour guide we had. He was excellent - spoke good English and did a great job of showing us the area. We were very pleased with the price as well. I highly recommend it.

Beyond my expectations. Matthieu was a wonderful guide, teaching so much history in such an engaging style. While it is possible to go at it on your own, renting a car and reading a guide book along the way, this experience was so much richer. Don't hesitate to book a tour. You won't regret it!!!
This tour was fantastic! Our tour guide was so knowledgable and friendly. It went beyond our expectations and truly made our entire trip even more memorable!
Great tour. Enjoyed the experience. Great to see where it happened.
The American cemetery is not the only thing to see in Normandy. Point du Hoc was simply amazing and I would recommend this trip to anyone. David was a great guide! He was very friendly and really knew his WWII history. He even made sure we made it to our train on time. Thanks David!
I must rate this tour 5 stars. Our guide was a local resident who treated the ground with all the respect and reverance possible. Lora (spelling?) was knowledgable in many areas of history and was able to make the intellectual link to cause and effect. Standing on Omaha Beach is an overwhelming experience and this tour guide understood that.
