This was an awesome tour...our tour guide was unsurpassed in her knowledge and had a great sense of humor during what was a long day.
Felix and Patrice were great! They kept the historical accounts going the entire time and ensured we knew what we were looking at and that we got everywhere we needed to on time. Of course, it would always be great to have more time at each place, but it is a day trip with a long drive by someone else! from Paris, so it is to be expected. Overall, great trip!
Amazing day! Our guides on August 5th were remarkable and a storehouse of knowledge. We were delighted with their expertise, the sites were amazing and the lunch was a lovely break. We would highly recommend this experience.
This tour was great! It is a long day, but definitely worth it. The day was extremely well-planned and tightly packed, so we were able to see all of the sights without feeling completely rushed. If you are the kind of person who likes to read every single placard in a museum, then you might feel a bit rushed at some of the sights Utah Beach and Omaha Beach especially, where there are museums, but my fiance and I thought the timing was perfect. The lunch is delicious, as is the cider tasting. Those were fun additions to an otherwise somber day. Overall, we had a wonderful and fascinating day.
It was a great tour. The guide was very knowlegable and very entertaining. I would highly recommend it.
Great trip! Felix was a wonderful guide, and had many interesting stories to tell. Lunch was very good, and the bus comfortable. Would highly recommend this tour and Felix.
Great tour. The cider tasting was a highlight for sure and the lunch was very good. well organized and on time - no complaints.
Wonderful day... we had two tour guides, one was an expert on the history and the other on French culture - a perfect combination of knowledge and information. I highly recommend this tour!
Felix and Violet were great. Long trip on a bus though, thankfully both of them made the extra effort on the way back to talk to each individual about anything. Only issue was breakfast in the morning, nothing was open before we got on the bus, and you don't get to stop until 930.
As Americans, this day trip was very special for us. We've seen many portrayals of these battlegrounds in movies, but to experience them in real life was quite surreal. Walking out on Utah Beach and seeing how beautiful it is today, it was hard to picture the horrors of what happened on that fateful day. We were very surprised that we were able to walk around at Pont du Hoc, even walking into former German bunkers. The cider tasting added a nice, welcome break from the somberness of the day and the cider/calvados were very good!. Our lunch was very good as well. My wife has some dietary restrictions and our guide, Violet, went out of her way to ensure that the restaurant was able to accommodate her, which we very much appreciated. Our last stop was the American Cemetery. This was a nice cap to the day, allowing us to reflect on the events that transpired here. It was amazing that there were so many people there, yet it was so still and quiet. Violet did a great job of providing us with some context for each of the sites. She was very attentive and took great care of us.
Professional and informative tour to Normandy and the D-Day landing beaches. Very informative and enjoyable. Great tour guide and driver. A great experience.
Although a long day, this tour was excellent and our guide, Linda, fantastic. We visited Utah Beach, the American Cemetary at Omaha Beach, and Pont du Hoc. Instead of just a fact based history, Linda provided a very human insight into what was occurring at that time. For a break in the history, we visited an apple orchard and producer of cider, calvados and liqueur, and had a lovely lunch at a seaside restaurant for some traditional Normandy fare. All in all a great day and we can thoroughly recommend this tour and Linda.
We had a great day at Normandy. A full agenda and we still had some time to sit and take in the history. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was very interesting.
The tour was great! The guides were very knowledgable and fun! We learned a lot about the details of the D-Day battle. The visit to the American cemetery was very emotional. A great tour I would highly recommend taking!
Very long trip from Paris, but I am glad we did it. It was overwhelming and very emotional. Lunch was in a lovely small town restaurant with great fish!! The guides were excellent and knew so much!!
Linda and Patrice were entertaining and informative and I would highly recommend this tour
This tour was fantastic. Our tour Guide was exceptional. His knowledge of the trip, history, and everything was beyond what I expected. I would recommend this to anyone looking to visit Normandy and the DDay battle fields. I was so impressed with our Guide and he is a great rep for your company
This was was a great tour. Our guides Linda and Julie were excellent. Perfect day
This is by far the best Viator tour we have taken. Our guide Felix was extraordinarily knowledgeable of US wartime history, and presented everything in a very professional, yet interesting way. The restaurant at lunchtime provided an excellent lunch, and the cider/Calvados tasting at the quintessential Normandy cider farm was superb. Definitely a 5 star rating!
Well worth it! Everything ran like clockwork. Our guide Linda was very knowledgeable and fun. She made the long ride a pleasure. Do wish we had more time to spend at Utah and Omaha Beaches. Never enough time to spend there. Although interesting, the cider tour could be eliminated and that time given to the beaches. The resturant we stopped at was a pleasant surprise, not expecting such a nice place that is attended by locals. Finally Viator was true to their word. When I found a cheaper price for this tour, they honored their promise and refunded the the difference. All in all, very happy.
