Lot's crammed into one day, but a perfect way to see the beach, museum and cemetery when your time is limited.

Our guide, Eliza, was knowledgable and accommodated our every request. Our meal in the converted farmhouse was delicious and was served graciously. This outing was the highlight of the trip for all eight members of our family.
We would definitely use your services again
The day was well organized from beginning to end. Our guide shared a wealth of information which made the visit even more meaningful. We are so grateful for the experience and particularly appreciated the time at the cemetery to visit the burial site of a relative.
The tour was wonderful.....very long day from 7am until 9:30pm but happy to be on a comfortable bus!! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the area and events. Would have preferred a different lunch, even just a sandwich rather than the prepared lunch plate. The tour was well worth the price!!
It was a wonderful tour with English speaking guide. We saw a lot of different places. The lunch was like eating in a fine French restaurant. It was very enjoyable.
This tour was amazing! The guide was delightful and the person providing historical perspective was interesting and incitful. He could have spoken more loudly. One suggestion. Somehow find more time for the museum to see the history section. Maybe omit Juno???
This was my husband's only request of this trip. The weather conditions the day we visit were terrible....cold and very windy. I think very similar to those during D Day which reinforces the sacrifices of all those men who made peace possible. The American cement army and museum are so touching. I also must comment on every venue we visited their were the same fresh red, white and blue floral wreaths. This makes you proud to be an American
This was an awesome tour. Was picked up at my hotel just as planned and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and the tour went exactly as planned. It was awesome to see and hear the stories that were told and experience this tour. Highly recommend.
Our guide was great. Extremely knowledgable and very friendly. So much to see and take in. Never enough time, but great tour overall.
our guide, manual was excellent, very knowledgable, and anxious to please
Wonderful guide and a wonderful day. The lunch was very good! The guide was very knowledgeable and flexible so that we could get the pictures we wanted. Would highly recommend this tour. Beware tho-this is a very long day!
A delightful day. My only suggestion would be for the young lady guide was for her to be more aware of her audience. As an example, there was a US Army veteran on the tour and she down played the importance of the beach as an on going reverent site to the French because there are so many other battle sites. It is a little thing, but the gentleman then said very little the rest of the ride.
We opted to pay a bit more and have the small group experience in Normandy. This made all the difference for us. Our tour guide, David, was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and amazing at his job. You can tell he loves the history and his guides are all the better for it. We highly recommend it!
Due to unusual circumstances all small tour vehicles were locked in a garage and inaccessible our tour was cancelled. Being our only day in Paris we were not able to reschedule. Although very disappointed, we compliment, appreciate and thank Danielle, our scheduled tour guide, who came to our hotel, outlined a self guided alternative plan including train and taxi and facilitated our Normandy excursion experience. We would like to think all tour guides are this conscientious, but we know Danielle is an exception!
This was a very broad tour of a lot of sites along the Normandy coast. Overall the sites were well planned, the tour was good, and the bus was excellent. This is a long tour with a lot of bus time, so be prepared for that.
Tour was excellent and the guide (Ian) did a very good job. He was pleasant and informative. The VW bus that we used was comfortable for the four of us. With 8 people it would be a challenge that i would not recommend.
This was a valuable trip to have gone on. Our guide was clearly a brilliant historian. For anyone who knows anything about history or perhaps had a family member who was actually there. this is a must go to trip. You will find yourself over-whelmed with emotion from the various sites. It was a long day, but totally worth it.
Amazing tour! The tour guides gave you time to take pictures and see all the sights. So much information.
Although we had to get up extra early while jet-lagged, the trip was worth it. We saw a lot of French country-side one of the most significant battle sites in the world and bought souvenirs for the rest of the family.
The day was excellent from beginning to end. Herve was an outstanding guide. I highly recommend the small group tour for the personalized attention you receive. The setting for lunch was beautiful and the meal as perfect as the whole day
The museum was larger than we thought and more time was needed to see all the exhibits. The guide was friendly and nice and answered a lot of questions.
