Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable, giving us not only a D-Day tour but also telling us about Medieval events in the area.
Best tour ever! Our guide was perfect--a local who knew the area like the back of her hand. She carried visuals and maps and pictures to highlight every place we visited. We crisscrossed the area and saw more than we ever expected.
While the weather could have been better (it was rainy), the tour guide made it a 5-star tour. He was not only informative, but very accommodating. He made adjustments to our site visits based on the weather and what interested us most. He also picked an excellent restaurant that was very family-oriented since we were travelling with twin one-year old babies.
We throughly enjoyed our Normandy Tour. Our tour guide, Adrien, was very informative and knew the history of the American Battle of Normandy. The time flew by as there is so much to see and absorb. As we drove Adrien gave us history and answered our questions. It was such an interesting day. The next day we did the museum at Caen on our own at Adriens suggestion. Very worth your time but expect to be there for a number of hours. Purchase the audio. It is a good to follow up on a great Normandy tour. Thanks Adrien.
Our guide was exceptional;.Very knowledgeable and he gave freely of his time. It was a great day that covered the Normandy area and D Day in detail.
We enjoyed our tour very much. We visited the areas where the airborne troops landed, including the church where is a replica of the soldier hanging from the church steeple. We visited oint du hoc including the bunkers and gun emplacements. The tour of the American cemetery was a very sobering expderience. We were struck by the beauty and location of the cemetery grounds (directly above Omaha Beach. My wife is unable to walk any substantial distance and our guide Matthew was extemely knowledgeble of the events of the landing and he obtained a wheel chair and took her on a complete tour of the cemetery. Our tour could not have been better. We now have a much better knowledge of the the D-day landing including the logistics that took place before and during the landing. We shall alwahys be indebted to the young men who participated for their bravery and sacrifice.
Our tour exceeded our expectations. Our guide was just great - personable, informed. She was encyclopedic on the subject. It was obvious she had been doing her homework - for years. We really learned a lot and enjoyed her company. It was a great day - just not long enough! We'll be back!
The tour was the best day of our vacation! Tons of knowledge, friendly, nice vehicle. I highly recommend it!
This tour was the highlight of my Eurorpean trip.. Gwen our tour guid was excellent if I was to ever go back I would request him. I will recommend this tour to any I know who is headed that way for vacation.
The trip was very informative and our guide was excellent. lots of small details that helped get everyone into what happened so long ago.
This tour was brilliant. Our guide had an extensive knowledge of the key battlegrounds and took us to some remote spots and explained the key military operations. Thoroughly recommended for anyone wanting to experience what our brave men had to overcome on D Day and beyond.
Normandy was incredible, and even more so with our superb guide, Karine. Her knowledge and mastery of the historical sights was most appreciated. It is the only way to see Normandy; especially if you only have one day.
What an unbelievable tour, took the train from Paris to Caen where our tour guide met us at our train. Spent the next 7 1/2 hours touring sites my family wanted to see as well as a few others not on our list. Our guide was very knowledgable of what occured at Normandy. She was able to answer all our questions. We only wished we had more time. She even made sure we got our return tickets back to Paris before she departed. I highly recommend this tour, you do see a lot in one day but there was so much more to see. Need several days to see the majority of the sites in Normandy. I highly recommend this Tour to anyone who wishes to get a better feel as to what transpired in Normand during World War II.
We would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Elise, was so knowledgeable, helpful, and kind from the moment she picked us up at the train station, until the moment she walked us right up to the door of our outgoing train. She knew where to go and how to plan the day so that we would have time to hit all of the high points. Not necessarily easy to do with so great of an area and so much information to cover. We found ourselves completely engrossed in the stories she told, and of course wanting to hear more. It was also helpful for us "visual learners" that she had a notebook full of maps, illustrations, newspaper clippings, etc., to add to the experience. We were so moved by the entire day. Thank you Elise!
We were only able to see the American sector because we had only one day. Our Tour Guide met us at the train on the platform and maximized the time we had available to us (9am - 6pm). He taylored the tour to meet our needs balancing content with time constraints. It was great! We had a wonderful time and saw everything we wanted to see in the American sector. I would recommend the private tour eventhough the cost is higher. It will give you the best chance to make the most of your tour especially if you only have one day.
