Tour was well planned and conducted. Guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. Bus was comfortable and driver also did a great job. Some stops were too short but all in all great trips!

Extremely knowledgeable guides. The museum at Caen is beautifully done, the lunch was good, and the trip to the different beaches was sobering and thought provoking. The only downside was that the duration of the trip was very long. It was, however, well worth the effort.

Our day in Normandy with Christian as our guide was such a worthwhile experience. From the on time pick up to the drop off at his recommended restaurant back in Paris every aspect in between was efficient, informative and most comfortable. The schedule allowed sufficient time to investigate and absorb in most cases. We would very much have liked more time at the US Museum and cemetary, however.We will recommend as well as use Viatour on our next trip.

A long day but well worth it. Tour covered everything you might want to know about D-Day. First stop at museum was helpful and appropriate. Service was reliable and on time and guide was excellent. My only complaint is stopping at a "convenience store" for "dinner" on the way home with long lines and inferior food choices. But otherwise, highly recommended for those who want to see Normandy for themselves.

This was a great experience. I would highly recommend it. Our guide was knowledgeable and the bus was comfortable. We were awed by the sights of the beaches and the museum tour. The American cemetery was breathtaking. Even the lunch was outstanding. If you are interested in history, this is a must.

This was one of the best days of our vacation. We were picked up at our hotel at 6:30 AM, had an interesting drive up to Normandie and a fantastic meal.
We had the van trip and I think that is a wonderful way to go. We were able to share the trip with very interesting passengers. If I had taken the trip on my own I would have missed out on a lot.

Our guide was Eliza and she was absolutely fantastic. Her family is from the Normandy region and she brought a personal side to the story from the occupation to the liberation that truly enhanced the experience. The pickup at the hotel was prompt, the guides English was excellent and there was no wasted time during our tour. I would recommend this service to anyone is considering a trip to the historic Normandy coast.

I highly recommend this trip. Our guide (Paolo) did a great job of accommodating the needs of both the American and Canadian guests. Although a long trip (over 12 hours), he kept us informed and entertained. The lunch, in an out of the way farmhouse, was fabulous. The tour exceeded our expectations.

It was wonderful! We were picked up at our hotel, had a very knowledgeable tour guide who covered everything we hoped to learn about the DDay landings. Lunch was provided in a lovely farmhouse inn. It was a full day but we enjoyed every minute of it.
