Great short tour if you are pressed for time. Would be better to do longer if you can. Our guide spoke good English and was very knowledgeable. Well worth doing.
Hadrian was an excellent guide-very well informed and spoke excellent English. I highly recommend.
Francois provided a very detailed and thorough explanation of events.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and the group size was perfect. We loved being at Pont du Hoc first thing. We were alone out there and it just added to the tour. Thank you so much for such a great experience!
Great tour. Our guide picked us up on time and was full of information about the history and the area. The guide was from the area and spoke English well. We only had time for a half day tour and would recommend it if you don't have time for the full day tour. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
I'm just sorry we only did a half day tour, I highly recommend a full day tour.
Meaningful and enjoyable trip with a tour guide that had a passion for the history of D-Day.
Great tour I learned so much more than we had done a self guided tour.
It was the highlight of our trip! Sunny our tour guide was informative and entertaining. I would highly recommend booking with Viator!
Highly recommend! Great insite, excellent explanations and knowable tour guide.
Meg was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. We loved all the history and stories that she was able to provide.
We enjoyed the tour very much. The tour guide was prompt picking us up at our hotel and he was extremely knowledgable about the D- Day invasion. We had visited the American Cemetery the previous evening when no one was there at the end of the day and it was a different experience compared to the morning of the tour where the ground maintence workers were using their leaf blowers and there were many more visitors. Given that I would clearly recommend the tour if you only have a half day to devout in the region.
Didn't end up taking the tour because my whole group was not able to attend. Did rent a car and drive from Paris... about 25 Euro in tolls there. Absolutely amazing experience and will go back again if given the chance. What a great fourth of july!
This tour is recommended if you only have half a day. The tour covers Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetary. The commentary of the guide was comprehensive and gave us a true sense of the Allies' acheivements and sacrifice. Take the full day tour if you want more.
Jean Francois was exceptional. He arrived a few minutes early to pick us up at our hotel. His English was fluent. He had many images in a notebook to accompany what he was explaining which gave extra insight into the facts of the day. He was flexible and eager to please. He took time to essentially give the tour twice since our group included an older gal who used two crutches due to recent knee surgeries. He kept us moving along and then went back to her, to explain everything. Very professional and courteous!
Outstanding tour, The guide was very good and easy to understand and knew the history well.
Beth was our tour guide, and she was hands down, the best tour guide we've ever had- thanks Beth for making Berlin so memorable- Kate and Lou Brannan

Great trip overall. Our guide was informative and answered all our inquisitive questions. I would recommend this tour if you have only a short amount of time.
Excellent trip. The guide knew her history very well and gave all of us a complete tour with everything that was important on D Day. She spoke good English was was fairly easy to understand. When asked questions she knew the answers. In all, a
The Tour was great. Our guide was wonderful and new so many interesting facts and details about D-Day and the area .as an Smerican I am now better informed about such a crucial part of American and World history. It is onebofvtge highlights of our trip to France.
Highly recommend this tour if you have limited time and wish to focus on the american experience surrounding D-Day.
If you want to visit Normandy and understand what it was like for the landing troops and the French living there, then you either need to devote hours to reading, or get on one of these trips. Our guide had an unbelievable wealth of knowledge and made the beaches and countryside, come alive. You then go to pay your respects at the American Cemetery, which everyone should be made to go and see, only seeing all those graves really brings home what those guys gave up for us. We should never forget. Great trip.
Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. It was cold and windy but the tour include Point du Hoc and Omaha Beach and the American Cemetary. Our tour guide Philip was informative and engaging. It was a moving experience.
