Anne-Claire Bailly was a wonderful tour guide. She provided us with so much information and history. She worked tirelessly to ensure we saw everything we wanted to and more. It was a long ride to Normandy but the time went by quickly. We stopped to pick up lunch half way there and had a beautiful picnic lunch on the beach. It was a bucket list adventure for my husband and myself and our 6 children left with a profound respect of this historical area.
My husband and I had both been to Normandy before- This time, we returned with our children, ages 15, 13 and 9. We opted for the private tour, in light of having children along. Our guide was Milan, who passionately, articulately, and accurately was able to set the stage for each battle, break down landscapes, strategies, historical significance of each location in such a way that we all walked away knowing so much more about D-Day and the battle for France. As a driver, he was an artist in both traversing the countryside and the crazy city streets of Paris. I had never driven around the Arc de Triumph before, but there we were. This trip was worth every penny, and truly changed my children's view of war, loss, battle, heroes, etc. Thank you.
This was a great tour.So glad we did the smaller private group.Our driver,guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the sights we were interested in.Would definitely highly recommend this trip.
