We travelled by train from Paris to Bayeux, and arrived early enough to have lunch at the hotel behind the train station. Our tour guide showed up a few minutes late but by then we had met others who were taking the same tour and felt more confident that we were at the right place at the right time! There was no signage so we were a little unsure at first. Elise (sp) was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable, her driving was excellent, and she had a sense of humor (always appreciated). Her English was good, with an accent of course. Visiting Normandy was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe and you definitely will not regret taking a tour with Viator.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and imparted great detail about the invasion sequence. My only complaint is his putting a seat behind the gear shift knob in the front seat, totally inappropriate for full size men. He should reduce the number of people in the van by one and raise the price per person to make it perfect and still work for the operator.

An absolutely fabulous half-day tour. Our guide was a very personable local with excellent English who made the history of the region light up with impressive knowledge of the specifics of battles and the people involved. The tour hit all the important sights (especially for those familiar with the American landing points) and ended at a reasonable time. Would suggest a more well-defined meeting point other than "outside the train station", but otherwise this was a near-perfect tour. Thank you!

If you only have a limited time to see Normandy, this is the way to go. Our guide picked us up at our BnB as scheduled and gave a wonderful overview of the D-Day operations. The stop at the American Cemetary is particularly moving. His recommendation to be at the flag pole when taps was played and the flag was lowered was great. Early April weather was a little cold, but the trip was a wonderful experience.

Carol and I thought the tour from Bayeux of the WWII sites was terrific. Our guide Sylvain was excellent a real student of the war and area. Highly recommend! Don

We loved our trip to Normandy with our guide. He was fun and his WW2 knowledge was great. We took a train from Bayeux to Paris, very easy. We rode the train back with our new "tour group" friends and had a blast drinking wine and eating local breads and cheeses in our train compartment.

Our tour was outstanding! We are telling all our friends and relatives about it. Our tour guide really added to our store of knowledge about D-Day. We highly recommend this experience.
