Adrien was super! COVID restrictions regarding mask wearing made it a little hard to understand/hear the narrative from the backseat of the van. We shared the tour with native French speakers as well so the switching back and forth between English and French was confusing at times. Overall outstanding day and very educational tour! Loved the detour to Port-en-Bessie....very picturesque fishing village!!

Our tour guide for the day was Adrian and he was absolutely unbelievable!! The day was moving and very emotional. I was in the 82nd in the 70's which made it much more enjoyable and heart felt. God Bless all those who are buried there.

Matt was a fantastic tour guide, gave interesting commentary in our small group of 6. He picked us up at the train station so we were able to make it a day trip from Paris. We caught an early train which was a bonus because we were able to walk into Bayeaux and see the tapestry on our own before the tour. Matt gave a comprehensive breakdown of the events of DDay offering a full perspective Of all the allies and even took us to the German Cemetery. Unforgettable experience!

Only tour available on a weekend in the winter but it was a great one! We were able to make it to both the German and American cemetery, Pointe du Hoc, and Omaha Beach. It was a good mixture of history as well as time for self-reflection. Our guide made recommendations for other items as well for our time in the area. Definitely check the weather as some in our group were not appropriately dressed and struggled.
