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!

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.

Great tour. Very informative. Our guide was friendly, easy-going and very respectful regarding the tour content. He answered questions without any problem. I did the half-day tour and enjoyed it but the full day tour may have been even more comprehensive. For the half-day tour, we focused on Omaha and Utah Beaches, Pointe du Hoc and the cemetery. Very moving.

What a wonderful experience we had on our tour to Normandy. The hotel accommodations were excellent. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. Our tour guide, David, met us at the hotel and began our audio tour to the beaches of Normandy and the Cemetery. David was extremely well versed in the history of World War II and the affect of the war on the community of Bayeux. He had many pictures he had researched to share with us. He was able to answer all questions any of us in the group had, including a 12-year old boy who in very interested in the war and especially the area of Normandy. David was very patient with us and allowed us to take our time to appreciate the opportunity of visiting this amazing area. Our visit to the Memorial Cemetery was very moving and again David had much to tell us.

It was a beautiful day and we were able to enjoy our time there.

Thank you very much for the opportunity.

We were fortunate to be the only 4 people on this tour during low season. Felt like we had all of Normandy to ourselves ! Our guide was absolutely brilliant. Non-stop interesting, factual information about the WWII battlegrounds and related history. I can assure you we would recommend this same tour to others.

Wonderful tour. Guide was excellent, had family ties to Normandy and spoke Engish very well. We stayed in Caen but wished we had stayed in Bayeux which looked like a small quaint town. Cane is a city and a 20 minute train ride from Bayeux. Definitely recommend half day tour.

Our half day was well worth it with only a couple of days in Bayeux (which is such abeautiful, friendly town). Adeline (I hope I spelt that correctly) was so informative. You see and hear a lot of documentaries, but being there is quite something else. It was December and we were blessed with a sunny day and absolutely no other visitors around....it really was a reverant experience. If you and it's winter, rug up.

This was the perfect tour for our short stay in Bayeux. Our guide Mag was great and very knowledgeable of all the history of Bayeux and the D Day invasion of Normandy in June 1944. We got to see some of the key places such as Pointe du Hoc, Omaha beach and the American cemetery as well as some of the small villages surrounding the area. We still had time at each place to get out and take pictures and walk the beaches and the cemetery grounds. We would highly recommend this tour if you only have a half day.

We had a great tour guide who had knowledge of the history and locations
of the Omaha Beach and the surrounding area.
We all had a great time, learned a lot and were able to ask questions also.
Tour was well worth the money.
Thank you.

Excellent. Our tour guide was knowledge - without being officious or boring - and knew answers to some obscure questions put to him by other people on the tour. He arrived on time and kept us informed as to where we would be going and how long we would have and explained some very complex war history in a simple easy to understand manner. Definitely recommend. I enjoyed it much more than I expected and this is due to the guide. We overheard some other guides at various points and defintiely think we lucked out with the guide we got!

Had limited time however was able to see a large area of the d day beaches, sights, and gained a very good overall understanding of the area. The guide, Sunny, was a local from Normandy with good knowledge and a passion for the stories and history as well as respect for the soldiers.

Enjoyed the tour and would recommend if time limited.
