Our DDay tour was amazing and Normandy Tours guide Mattieu did an excellent job exposing us to important sites and relevant history of the Battle of Normandy. I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Normandy.

Very informative!! The guide was very knowledgeable about the sites and it was great being in such a small group! They picked us up and dropped us off at the train station so it was super convenient! Really enjoyed it!

Our guide was highly informative, had a clear passion for what he was telling us about. My partner loves everything WW2 and thought this tour was incredible. Myself I did not know alot about what happened on D-Day but still found this tour enjoyable and interesting. Recommended!

our tour, run by the very knowledgeable and friendly and accomodating Lucille was great. Very much full of facts and context for all the facts. I cannot thank Lucill enouhg for her deep and intelligent analysis of the places we went to and their context with D-Day- She was able to answer all our questions and be perfectly understood, with a charming French accent. Thank you so much for making this very important tour so memorable.

Outstanding day, a great guide, Lucia, and the weather was superb. Take an early train from Paris and take the time in the morning to see the Bayeux Tapestry before embarking on this afternoon tour. You won't be disappointed. A great day!

We were picked up on time and our guide was very friendly and obviously very passionate about the region and its history. A tour is absolutely the way to go. I couldnt image trying to drive around on my own to all the different sites. And of course having someone explain to you exactly what you were seeing made it all the more interesting.

Our guide Sophie was excellent. She made the difference between just looking and actually feeling like I was there during the battles. Thanks for the great experience.

Visiting Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, and the American Cemetery was one of the highlights of our trip to France. Our guide picked us up at the hotel and returned us there. He had a lot of information about D-Day and what happened. He carried charts, maps, and pictures to aid our understanding. He gave us time at each stop to explore on our own and take pictures. He had an excellent command of the English language and answered our questions. It was a very informative day.

If you want to visit Normandy to view the D-Day beaches and cemetaries, a tour with Viator is the way to go. We had a great time and I don't think it could have been any better. Our guide was a young French man. He did a great job, was very nice and courteous and showed us things on the tour we would have never found ourselves. This was better than advertised.

Greatly enjoyed the tour! Our tour guide gave us excellent info and even though the weather was windy and rainy she seemed completely unfazed and unrushed in offering her knowledge. Definitely recommend this tour!

Excellent tour, Lucy our guide was fabulous. Took the 7:07 train in from Paris and got to Bayeux at 9:30. Our tour started at 1pm, so we walked about 5 minutes into the village. Beautiful cathedral there, which we visited, walked around (bought souvenirs in the village, there was no shops during the tour) had breakfast. Made our way back to the train station, where we were picked up promptly at 1pm. It was a moving experience, and Lucy did an excellent job explaining things to us. One of our highlights of our trip.
