We had a great trip; our tour guide, Eliza, was fantastic and very patient! If you can't do an overnight to Normandy, this is the way to go.
It was a great experience! Everything was perfect. We were picked up at out hotel on a timely manner. We were transported on a double decker bus to Normandy (lots of room). The included lunch inside the museum was excellent and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions.
Outstanding trip. My mother, stepdaughter, and I went on this day trip to the beaches of Normandy and it was one of the highlights of our trip to France. The tour guide was informative and friendly, and the tour was well organized. The trip is designed well and builds in emotional impact throughout the day. The visits to Omaha beach and the American Cemetery were especially moving. Don't miss this one!
Perfect for a one day trip. The only negative was our guide started discussing the historic elements of D-Day as we left Paris. It's a 3 hour drive to Normandy and it was 7 in the morning.
This was a fantastic tour. So very interesting and moving. Our tour guide Eliza was incredibly knowledgable. She is from the region of Normandy and was able to explain things in detail. She spoke about any and all topics from the time she picked us up to when she dropped us off. I was not sure if this excursion would be interesting for myself and teenage daughter, but the entire family felt that this was a highlight of our time in France.
The trip was very moving...the bus was very comfortable and our two guides were excellent !,
There isn't one bad thing that I could say about this tour. Aymerik was fantastic and full of great info and insight into the area and history. We chose this small group tour so we could have more one on one time with the tour guide and to not feel rushed and that's exactly what we got. Worth every penny.
This tour was an experience we will never forget especially my husband. He had been waiting for this a long time and Viator gave us the opportunity in doing so. Very organized, accommodated us with hotel pick up, punctual and very informative. Worth every penny!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was a very special and moving day. Our tour guide, Aymeric, was outstanding. We had lunch at a wonderful old French farmhouse converted into a hotel. Would highly recommend this tour and if possible, request Aymeric as your tour guide.
Tour guide was exceptional and very knowledgeable which made the trip very interesting.
What a tremendous day. My wife and I chose the minivan along with 4 others, and we were all picked up at our hotels around 6:50 AM. The girl driving did have a heavy French accent, but that was the only "down" side. Half way to Normandy, we stopped for gas, toilets and croissants.
Point deHoc was very moving, as was Omaha, Juno and Gold beaches. The German bunkers were remarkable - very thick reinforced concrete - 4-5 feet thick. The lunch was excellent. The American cemetery was certainly the most emotional stop.
About 7 PM we were back at our hotels - it was certainly worth the money.
