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.
The tour was great. Lots of facts and info. The guide Phillip was very friendly and helpfull and full of information.The only downside was it was too short. We did'nt have enough time at any of the venues covered, especially the American Cemetry which was our last stop.
Tour guide was on time and very friendly. She knew her history and the importance of the places she took us. The only negative was that she was sometimes hard to understand with her French accent. Other than that, it was a great tour.
Great, tour guide was interesting and passionate, great for limited time in normandy
Good length tour and level of detail for my 3 boys, ages 12, 10 and 7. Great info once we arrived at sites. Would have liked more info on the region/commentary as we were driving.
Excellent...guide was charming and extremely informative. Three hours was a very short amount of time to cover so much ground but Francois did a great job of balancing his talks with giving us time to explore the bunkers and beaches and American cemetery.
Nice guide and introduce the history in detail! We spent a meaningful morning with him, immersing ourselves in the imagination of what happened there on D-day. Thanks to him, we harvested a lot.
Although the tour was only 3 hours it gave us a good insight the events that took place in WW2.
Jonathon did a great job lots of info and pictures. WE were not able to go to the American Cemetery and Museum do to our great American government in a Shut down. He did take us to a German Cemetery instead.
He also had lots of other interesting tidbits. No problem with being picked up for the trip
