It was all good. The guide. The bus transportation. The pick up/drop off at our hotel. The weather. The sites at Normandy and the beaches. A must see for all.
Our guide Harvey was extremely knowledgeable and described not only the events of D-day but also on the behinds the scenes political and personal interactions between Roosevelt, Churchill, Eisenhower, de Gaulle and other major figures of WWII. He also talked about the history of the region which really gave us a better understanding of the people of Normandy and France. Harvey made the tour a rich and memorable event.
Ian was an absolutely perfect tour guide in every way. He provided extensive information and somehow seemed to know exactly when to leave us on our own to experience this emotional place of our history. Paying the extra money for the 8-passenger van tour was worth every extra penny. The place where we ate lunch was off the beaten path and delicious with a beautiful presentation. Thank you, Viator.
needed more time at omaha and less time eating, less time at museum............well organzied
Fabulous trip. Two big thumbs up. Adrian, our guide, was awesome. Very informative. Visiting the D-Day beaches and US cemetery were amazing. Very thought provoking. Plus you get to see Paris and the French countryside while traveling to and from Normandy Expensive but well worth it. .
Don't miss this one. If you are a WW2 this is an incredible day. Very poignant standing on these beaches.
Fabulous! The entire day was incredible, guide was great, lunch at the old chateau was more than expected.
We had fabulous time and our guide/driver was prefect. We would highly recommend this tour and it's great lunch.
I was thinking about obtaining a map or list of all the cities we went through and the restaurant name. We were so into the land scape, etc. we forgot to write down the cities and restaurant name. If you could have
Our drive supply the information it would be much appreciated.
Excellent trip, we were there for the 70th anniversary and it was a really intense experience. The tour kicked off with the museum in Caen which was a really good start to set the mood. The stories from the battles and the beaches were also really good and the American Cemetery was sobering.
Would definitely recommend this tour and even though we left at 7ish and didn't get back to Paris until 10ish, we wanted more time at the museum and beaches.
This is an amazing tour. Lots of wonderful information and plenty of photo stops. The lunch at the Caen Memorial was very very good. This is a very moving experience for anyone. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone wanting to visit this part of France and learn a little history and get great photos.
Wonderful experience! The coach was clean and comfortable. Tour guides knowledgeable and very organized. We were there a week before the 70th anniversary. Would highly recommend a Viator tour. Top notch! Five star.

Ricardo was an expert guide who took us to all of the beaches with ample time to explore and reflect, and returned us to Paris at the end of the day. Our lunch in Crepon was marvelous. I didn't know whether the cost included gratuity, but he deserves a reward for his knowledge of history, his congenial demeanor and the care with which he treated us. I would book with the tour operator again. My only regret is that I wasn't able to change my itinerary to include an overnight stay with a visit to the Bayeux tapestry. I will plan on visiting again to stay longer in the beautiful region of Normandy.
Excellent, excellent. A long day but worth it. Was given ample time to tour on our own.
This tour was absolutely fantastic. We loved having a pickup near our hotel. Well worth it! Again Viator did a great job and the tour guides were fantastic. This tour was well organized and we all had a great time. Going to the battlefields was sombering. This war affected everyone, the canadians, americans, british and the poor 14 and 15 year old german boys as well. The tour guides brought everything to life and because they were french we were able to talk and they shared some experiences from their personal knowledge. Well worth every penny.
This was an excellent and efficient way to get an overall view of the D-Day Invasion on the coast of France. There was enough history to be informative and enough free time to explore on our own. The American Cemetery was quite moving as was the cliff Rudder's Rangers climbed and the 5 beaches (especially Omaha). Thank you for a wonderful tour we will treasure for a lifetime.
