5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This tour was well worth the time and the money. When we first arrived at the bus loading area it was quite busy and crowded and I was concerned. However, once we were on the bus, it was comfortable, clean and not overly crowded. I suggest that you bring along a light breakfast to eat on the bus, but limit your liquids. It was a long drive to the first stop at the Normandy museum and there were no stops on that trip. I think it took about 2 and a half hours to get there. Once we arrived at the museum we were given 2 hours tour and then we were to meet for lunch at 11:45 for lunch. The museum was crowded and it took a long time to see the exhibits. We had to rush through the end to get to lunch on time. After lunch we went back the bus to visit the beaches. We were given ample time at Pointe du Hoc and at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. However we only had about 15 minutes at the last two beaches. This might have been because not everyone got back on time at the first two stops. I did have to ask that the bus driver make it cooler on the trip home. The bus had been sitting in the hot sun and it had warmed up considerably inside. After the AC was turned on I noticed that the bus exhaust smell lessened as well. On the trip back we made one stop at a truck stop. It took about 3 hours for the entire trip home. Our tour guide was pleasant and spoke English well. She was knowledgeable about the events surrounding DDay and share just the right information at just the right time. It was a long day, but a memorable experience. I was greatly moved by the men who bravely fought on those beaches some 70 years ago
