Our tour guide was excellent - well informed, welcoming and obviously had a personal interest in the subject matter. Our pick-up was timely and we saw all the sites as promised.
Everything went just as advertised. We were picked up promptly at our hotel. We had limited time and we saw Omaha Beach, Point du Hoc and the American cemetery. Our guide was well informed and answered all of our questions.
Absolutely awesome. Just being at Normandy was breathtaking and the National Cemetery, walking on Omaha Beach, the bunkers, all of it was overwhelming. Our tour guide, Olivie' (sp?) did a fantastic job of providing us with the historical perspective...fantastic!
Excellent tour! Our tour guide Sylvain was fanastic. He took time to explain the history of each site, areas along the way and answer our questions. Although this was a short tour, we were given time to explore. We also lucked out by catching the morning tour and we were the only two people on the tour.
The tour guide spoke perfect English, was well knowledgable of World war 2 and the history of all the sights we went to. The guide also was courteous, and had a great sense of humor. He also got alot done with the half day trip.
Our tour was amazing and personal. All the attendees were US Military so our guide seemed to go the extra mile and make the experience that much more special. She understood that those were and are our Comrads on that land. The trip was spectacular.

Superb. Turned out to be just Olivier and us to Normandy. The French perspective was good to have. He was a courteous and informative guide.
Christophe, our guide, was knowledgeable, personable, and organized. We very much enjoyed our moving and informative visit to the beaches of Normandy.
Our recent tour of Omaha Beach was excellent. Vincent was our tour guide and he was excellent. He was knowledgeable, eager and was on time to pick us up as he said he would. I would recommend your company to anyone for that tour. Thankyou.
Our tour of NormandyOmaha Beach was outstanding. It is still difficult to comprehend the enormity of what happened there in 1944, even after reading accounts of that time and watching documentaries. Thank you for a very moving experience.
If you only have a half day available, take this tour - but the full day is preferable!
Our guide was excellent. He spoke perfect English and he's originally a Parisian! He was thoroughly knowledgeable and our group was small, just 6 - perfect. We would love to go back and take a full day or two with him. There is so much more to cover and see.
The tour was extremely informative and meaningful. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, it was truly a joy to listen to her. An especially positive part about the trip was the fact that, at each stop, she gave us many facts, using maps and photos to help us visiualize what we were hearing, and then allowed us about 20 minutes to explore on our own. She was polite, respectful, and funny, with a wonderful command of the English language. She learned each of our names and made sure to use them often. She was also punctual, making an 800 a.m. start time more pleasant. At the end, not only did she recommend a restaurant for lunch, but she also took us there, told us how to order and informed us of the menu items she preferred. Our family would highly recommend using this tour service. A trip of a lifetime was made even more wonderful by this friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic service.

Our tour guide was outstanding and we learned so much about the D-Day invasion. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone with a short amount of time to spend in Normandy.
Our guide was wonderful. She spoke excellent English and was clearly very interested in the history of the place. I wish we had had time for the full day tour as I'm sure she had so much more to share with us. Definitely recommend this tour!
Most excellent guide. Charming and very well informed. We all learnt heaps. I would have enjoyed seeing part of the Allied, British Canadian action, but I guess that was too far away. I just felt it would have given a more balanced picture of what occurred and who was responsible for the landing. It wasn't only an American action.
This was a second visit to Normandy and second time we took a tour because this time we took my parents. This tour company was 100 better than the other company which I won't name. Our tour guide was very informative, had photos and shared a lot of information we did not learn about last trip. Very worthwhile.
We traveled through some beautiful Norman countryside to the beaches where we saw and learned heaps. The guide was very knowledgeable and brought the history of the area alive for all of us, including our fourteen year old son.
The operator was very knowledgeable and personable. The memorial was deeply moving for all of us and is an excellent tribute to those that sacrificed so much for our freedom. The tour company picked us up from our hotel on time and even dropped us back at the train station as we requested!!!

Outstanding guide was entertaining, with excellent English. She kept it moving at a pace that was comfortable and allowed for lots of questions.
Our guide was first rate. He shared lots of interesting facts relating to battlefield conditions. I highly recommend this tour.
We had an excellent guide. He made the place come alive with his information and heartfelt insights. His English was very easy to understand and his vocabulary was very good. I highly recommend your services to anyone who visits the Normandy area.
Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable - I would definitely recommend this tour.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour BUT I feel like I might have missed some of what I was promised since I was picked up 15 minutes late and dropped off 5 minutes early. Also when we were given time to walk around the American cemetery, I assumed we would have additional time to see the info center and view the exhibits - we did not. Please make it clear to future guests that they should leave some time for that if they are interested even 20 minutes in the center would have been appreciated by me.
