Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Normandy Beaches Half-Day Trip from Bayeux. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We had a limited amount of time and this tour fit the bill. Our guide was well versed on the area, having grown up in Bayeux, and his English was excellent. Made for a really great afternoon
We had an amazing afternoon. Our guide was so knowledgable and was passionate about the area and it's history. Our kids aged 12 and 9 were fascinated and had very little prior knowledge of the history.
If I could give this 6 stars, I would. I wish we had done the full day trip but time didn't allow for us to do so.
Our tour guide, Daniel, was very outgoing, friendly, and knowledgeable.
We took the train from Paris and it took two hours. It was well-worth it. We were met at the train station and we left for the tour from there, picking up two other couples along the way.
The tour started at Pont du Hoc, then we went to Omaha Beach, and then ended at the American cemetery and museum.
My grandfather served in WWII (in the Pacific) and my husband is currently active duty Army. The whole experience was beyond educational and extremely sobering. I have always had a deep love and appreciation for our men and women and uniform and seeing this part of history up close and personal was something I will never forget.
We didn't have much time at the end of the evening for the museum, but from what I did see, it is awesome.
If you have the time, do the full tour! I wish we had.
Our tour guide, Sarah, was knowledgeable, personable and fun! This tour made me ashamed of my lack of interest as a teenager studying history and I am going to do some research on the battles of that area. Thank you Sarah and Viator tours for making Veteran's/Armistice Day a memorable experience.
We highly recommend this half day tour, quite doable by train from Paris. Our guide was extremely knowledable, personable and interesting. Answered all our questions and made our day very enjoyable. Whether you are a history buff or not this was an amazing and moving experience.
OUR RECENT TOUR OF THE NORMANDY BEACHES WAS EXTREMELY MEMORABLE.
THE EXPERIENCE WAS ENCHACED BY THE EXPERTISE OF OUR GUIDE, FRANCOIS.
WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE FROM A TOUR GUIDE. HE WAS CORDIAL. KIND AND
EXCEPTIONALLY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE ENTIRE NORMANDY INVASION.
LOOKING FORWARD TO A RETURN TRIP AND WILL REQUEST FRANCOIS.
FRANCOIS--MY LEG HAS HEALED-THANKS!
Excellent! Adrien, our young guide, could not have been better. Very, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, open, friendly, and very, very sensitive to his American clients. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was so knowledgeable! He could answer any question, and had amazing insight into the preparations for the landing, the landing itself,and the battles that ensued. Everything was right on schedule, and the van very comfortable. The cemetery was closed due to the shutdown, but the guide did his best to make up for it? I highly recommend this tour.
The tour took our group to all of the important places. We had adequate time to observe and contemplate all of the sites. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. I was picked up on time (1:00) at my hotel, and those returning to Paris were at the station at, or near, 6PM, certainly in time for their 1830h train.
Taps and lowering of the flags at the American Cemetery at 4:50PM was impressive.
There is considerable walking required. Good walking shoes are a necessity.
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide was well informed. If you had a question, she knew the answer. I highly recommend this tour to any and all!
Thank you to Quin who was knowledgeable, professional and made our afternoon in Normandy such a wonderful and memorable experience!
Oliver Cricket was the best! He explained the operations from beginning to end, and gave a deep insight into elements I had not considered before. My grandfather was part of the DDay landings and would have appreciated Oliver's stories and accounts. I would highly recommend this tour and Oliver as well! Thanks again for making the experience unforgettable!
