Elisa was the BEST tour guide we've ever had and we've been to France 18 times! She was so knowledgable and personable. This is a trip everyone coming to France should make. Being American it was very emotional but we owe it to these men and women who lost their lives in the course of liberating Europe to actually see what they endured. Great guide....great trip!
This small group tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Paris. While it is a long drive from Paris, seeing the locations where the Allied invasion occurred on D-Day brought history to life. Our tour guide was a young French woman with excellent English skills and vast knowledge of the invasion, the history of WW II and the French countryside. This tour took us from Paris to the Normandy coast and included stops at Utah and Omaha Beach, Pointe au Hoc, Gold, Juno and Sword Beaches. The stop at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial was extremely moving The full-day tour included a gourmet lunch at the Ferme de la Ranconniere that was fabulous. My husband and I felt that this tour would not have been as intimate with the larger group. Highly recommended.
This is a must do if you are a WW II history buff or have a relative who has served in this historic event. Our guide was excellent and the trip provided the insight on the sacrifices and massive requirements that changed the direction of the war.
This was a full day tour from Paris, early morning until evening. The bus was comfortable, the tour guides were great and Normandy was one of the best tours I have ever taken. I would do this again. I have no complaints at all, I just wish we could have stayed at some areas longer, but I realize due to the time restriction, that was not possible. I highly recommend this tour!
This tour was one of the highlights of our 14-day vacation. Our tour guide was professional and most informative. Really made the day. Our lunch was outstanding. We loved the whole experience.
It was very scenic drive. The spots we stopped to see we're very interesting. The tour guide was excellent -smart and personable. The lunch stop was lovely and served great food.
Great tour that met expectations, as advertised. The small group and hotel pick up was definitely worth it. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The lunch was nice, but took away valuable time from the D-Day Battlefields and Cemetery. The tour needed to be longer, to spend another hour at the Cemetery and Visitors Center and shopping at Arromanches. More time at the historic sites would make this a six star trip. Thanks
This trip was excellent and very emotional to see the beaches and the cemetery, lunch was delicious. I highly recommend thios trip to anyone wanting to see Normandy.
It started out as a visit to a part of France (Normandy) that I had to see for myself, my parents and all of the Greatest Generation who helped to protect and preserve. The greatest generation gave their lives for all generations after. My wife and I had a very heart warming trip to this northern part of France to see the beautiful countryside that exists today. How beautiful it is after almost 70 years and at the same time the integrity of this precious area was kept. The visit to the American Cemetery sent chills through me. I wish that we could have touched every stone. This excursion was the highlight of our trip fom 7am to 9:30pm. I recommend that if you have a chance, take advantage. Make time for it. Thanks
Very informative and also emotional. The cemetary at Normandy is so well kept. Seeing Omaha Beach and traveling through the little villages were also delightful. I will recommend this tour.
An emotional day to say the least. The museum was very informative, as was the short movie. Visiting La Pointe du Hoc, overlooking Omaha and Utah Beaches was heart-stopping. And of course, the Cimetiere American and its almost 9300 graves leaves one speechless.
Excellent trip. Guides were very knowledgable! You will never forget going to this very hallowed ground.
I can't say enough about how great this tour is. This is the only way to see Normandy!!!! I called the company 24 hours prior and everything was in order. Our driver ( Paul) picked us up at our hotel as we had the small group with hotel pick up. My husband is a huge war buff and I was concerned that he would know more than the tour guide. This was not the case at all. Paul was extremely knowledgable. The tour allowed for a pit stop for a coffee etc along the way as we had an early rise. The tour covered all the points of interest and allowed for plenty of time to see everything and take pictures. The lunch was way beyond our expectations!! What an amazing meal at an amazing chateau. It really gave us the feeling of the French countryside. This tour was extremely good value for the money and I would not hesitate to recommend it. It has been the highlight of our trip so far.
