Awesome. Incredibly informative and so inspirational. We did it on our first day which helped with the jet lag because we had to b up at 6 am. yet slept the whole 3 hours there. Highly reccomend it--- a real interesting excursion!

Well worth the drive from Paris. The tour guide was excellent and the bus was very nice as well.The tour stops at a WWII war museum in Caen. The entire trip was great. Omaha Beach is a must see for anyone intrested in WWII. It was a moving experience. Iam not sure how anyone survived that battle..God bless them!

The trip from Paris to Normandy was pleasant with our knowledgable tour guide. The Museum at Caen was a perfect orientation to the events of Normandy. The beaches and cemeteries were serene as if paying respect to all those who lost their lives. The tour was well done. Thank you... I would use Viator again and recommend it to others.

An outstanding tour in every respect. Our hotel pick-up was right on time, the driver/ tour guide was excellent and very entertaining. His knowledge of the history of the region and D-Day was very good. Our lunch in Normandy was superb at a beautiful B and B. Our reservation was made at the last minute and we were thrilled with the customer service. I highly recommend this tour from Paris. No trains to take or buses to meet. Hotel pick-up and return was so stress free.

Loved it! We started with a fascinating history of the war at Caen Museum. Highly recommend the headsets but keep an eye on the time and save plenty for the invasion at the end! Lunch with fellow travelers was quite tasty with plenty of red wine and regional cheeses (including camembert!). The short trip to the landing beaches reminded us why we wanted a tour instead of a rental car, especially when we had the opportunity to visit three, with plenty of time to snap photos and explore bunkers. The day concluded with the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach, a beautiful but sobering reminder of the sacrifice made by so many during WWII.

What a pleasure it was to sit back and not have to navigate or drive to Normandy! The bus ran on time, had frequent stops at all the pertinent places in Normandy, and the lunch was delicious. Our guide was very well-informed and added a depth to the tour that we could not have done on our own. Thank you!

Great trip. Chris our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Wish we had a bit more time at the cemetary - 45 minutes is not enough to go through the museum and to walk around and see everything.

Wonderful and informative trip. Only 4 in our tour. Our guide, Ian,was great. Knew his history. Being there worth a million stories. Lunch at farmhouse was delightful. We were able to see a few extra sites than the brochure stated. Got a feel for the countryside away from Paris. Great Trip!

Great trip. Couldn't have ask for a better guide -- pleasant, very knowledgeable, and a sense of humor. The entire trip was timely, very comfortable, and we would highly recommend. Lunch was terrific and the countryside gorgeous.

The trip to Normandy was wonderful. Our guide Pablo knew more about D-Day and World War II than most historians and made the day not only fun but educational. I would recommend this trip highly

The trip was fantastic! We are so glad we booked! Although the trip was 14 hours, it flew by. The day was emotional yet uplifting as well. We owe so much to those who gave their lives to liberate France and Europe! Our guide (American) was great! He was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Also, the lunch was terrific! Great job Viator! We will definitely use your services again! Samuel and Deirdre, Pickering, Canada.

This is a 14hour trip and once again the tour left a little late which is quite annoying when you have to up for a said 7.00am departure but never mind we where on the way and had a very nice tour guide who understood that everyone was a little tierd so after initial information left us alone for a while to just enjoy the scenery. Our first stop was Casen Memorial and Museum it was very well presented and easy to follow around and quite interesting. We had lunch here which is included and was very delicious even the wine was included. After lunch we head of to the beaches of Normandy firstly to Omaha Beach and then the Visitors Centre and thenoff to Juno. We then make the long trek back to Paris about a 3 1/2 hour drive. This was a great trip.
