5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2018

I would rate this more than 5 stars if I could. We had the good fortune to have the owner of Bayeux Tours, Andy, as our guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about this period of history in the area and his passion makes the events that happened come alive. Although it was a long day, because there were multiple stops throughout the day it didnt seem to be long at all. In fact, we could have used a little more time at several places. Andys use of the time in the van traveling to the different sites was used well with his discussion and videos. He gave a balanced view of the first stop, a German cemetery and the tour ended with the lowering of the flag and taps at the US cemetery. He also had a lunch stop at a wonderful place he is renovating with WWll memorabilia to provide further insights into the time period. I would highly recommend this tour and would definitely take another tour with Bayeux Tours if I had the opportunity.

Mark's enthusiasm for all thing WWII and the events of D-Day made me feel like the money spent for the tour was well worth it. We had a car and could have visited all of the sites on the tour on our own but would have missed the stories and details Mark provided. Well done Mark!

WWII has been my passion for a long time, so it was a life-long dream to get to stand on the same ground as all the brave men and women that served those 70 odd years ago. The experience would not have been complete without our tour guide Mike. His enthusiasm and professionalism was fantastic and just having him share his own personal stories and other items he had picked up from past experiences and tours really helped bring the tour to a whole new level. I would recommend both Mike and the tour to any and all that wish to experience the same thing I did.

Tom was an amazing guide! He is so knowledgeable and kept our interest throughout the whole day. At every stop, he was able to give us a backstory and describe exactly what we were looking at or the significance of where we were standing. Besides the crazy cold wind, my husband and I both really enjoyed this tour. Even though I am not a big history fanatic I had a great day and would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking to visit these sights.

I would rate this tour as 10 stars out of 5, if the system would let me. Our guide Tom was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and passionate about the intricacies of the Normandy landings. Thank you!

Fantastic, informative, and moving tour. Our guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable and, even better, passionate about the subject matter. Only downside is that, even with the full day tour, there isn't much time at any of the stops. Would recommend planning an extra day to spend in the region if you want to have time to go back and extend your visit to any of the sites.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

My sister and I took this tour. Going to Normandy was essential to us as our dad was in the second wave. The guide we had regaled us with relevant and sometimes devastating stories. He was fabulous. The whole tour was well worth the trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

A must for every American. Our guide Mike had amazing facts, figures, and stories to share...visiting Normandy without the benefit of a knowledgeable guide would not have been nearly as memorable. One of the best tours weve ever taken.

Book this tour!!! Lloyd was our tour guide and he was amazing! Very knowledgeable and was great with answering questions ind detail. He said history was also his hobby and I believe him. We realized he was actually pretty sick that day he was throwing up during lunch out back but he never let it show how horrible he was feeling. I thought he would jip us a little because he was feeling to awful, but on the contrary, he even went above and beyond when we found out my dad was apart of the 1 ID- Big Red 1 Division who landed on Omaha Beach. My dad is not a WWII Vet but it still meant a lot to be where his predecessors were. Lloyd mentioned there's a memorial for the 1ID that'a a little out of the way and he doesn't normally go to it but wanted to take my dad there. Again, Lloyd is sick but making this experience a once in a lifetime for us.
My dad was also skeptical of taking a tour because he knows so much about WWII, let alone D-Day, but Lloyd still told us stories and facts not even my dad knew about. I'd do this trip again in a heartbeat. ESPECIALLY if you're a history junkie you should take it with a tour guide. They give more meaning and details to the sites then you'd even think about. Great history, great tour guide, great experience.
