The tour was amazing! The guides were fluent in English, we had no problem understanding every word. The pacing is a bit rushed, but there is a lot to see in the alotted time. The included lunch was wonderful.
Outstanding! Everything went off without a hitch. Hotel pick-up was as scheduled. Upon return to the main tour facility, there was a van driver calling my name out to take me back to the hotel. The tour guide was amazing. This is a must do for every American.
Was a long day but well worth it. Our guide was very informative and the bus was very clean. Thnks so much!!
Walking the beaches allowed us to ground truth what we had read in the history books. We took the small group tour so we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. As the trip was about 12.5 hours long, I'm glad we booked it that way. I can't imagine having to spend extra time trying to find the way to a meeting point in Paris or Caen. And it was enjoyable bantering back and forth with our guide Harvey. I felt a little rushed at the American Cemetery. Having an extra hour to spend more time at the visitor center there would have been appreciated. Lunch was a very nice, several course affair at a converted farmhouse.
Great tour- saw 4 of 5 landing beaches. Good tour guide- lots of info. Bus comfortable and clean. Excellent lunch:)
Beyond Compare!!! Our guide was exceptional and since we were a group of Canadians, the guide adapted the tour to include quality time at the Canadian Cemetery. This could easily be a 2 day tour, so much to see. Exceptional lunch served at a local Inn. A must for everyone!!!
This emotional trip was well worth it! Ricardo was our guide and he was great! Would recommend the small group tour. Lunch at the quaint location was fantastic!

This was my dream come true! My grandfather stormed Omah beach this tour was amazing!
It was great. I would recommend the small group tour to anyone. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the lunch was great
This tour was well worth the time and the money. When we first arrived at the bus loading area it was quite busy and crowded and I was concerned. However, once we were on the bus, it was comfortable, clean and not overly crowded. I suggest that you bring along a light breakfast to eat on the bus, but limit your liquids. It was a long drive to the first stop at the Normandy museum and there were no stops on that trip. I think it took about 2 and a half hours to get there. Once we arrived at the museum we were given 2 hours tour and then we were to meet for lunch at 11:45 for lunch. The museum was crowded and it took a long time to see the exhibits. We had to rush through the end to get to lunch on time. After lunch we went back the bus to visit the beaches. We were given ample time at Pointe du Hoc and at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. However we only had about 15 minutes at the last two beaches. This might have been because not everyone got back on time at the first two stops. I did have to ask that the bus driver make it cooler on the trip home. The bus had been sitting in the hot sun and it had warmed up considerably inside. After the AC was turned on I noticed that the bus exhaust smell lessened as well. On the trip back we made one stop at a truck stop. It took about 3 hours for the entire trip home. Our tour guide was pleasant and spoke English well. She was knowledgeable about the events surrounding DDay and share just the right information at just the right time. It was a long day, but a memorable experience. I was greatly moved by the men who bravely fought on those beaches some 70 years ago
Great experience. The tour guides were both very knowledgable about the history of normandy. It was well worth the time needed to visit. They gave us enough time at every beach and museum to enjoy and take in the history. I would recommend this tour and company to all my friends. Keep up the good work and looking forward to future tours around the world with your company.
