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.
An absolutely wonderful and moving tour. We so enjoyed our expereince.
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.
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.
We have a great time on our Full Day Group Tour of American D-Day booked with Viator!! Our tour guide, Jon, was excellent not only in his knowledge of the actual and many events of D-Day but also his knowledge of all the little stories that one very rarely hears about. You can tell Jon not only loves history especially WWII but his enthusiasm is so very contagious and gets the whole group delving deeper and deeper into this major and life changing event that touches all of us even today. My uncle, a part of an Engineering Battalion, landed on Omaha Beach on July 3, 1944, and it was a very emotional moment to stand on that beach that he actually landed on. Thank you Jon for your knowledge, your humor and your patience answering all our questions!!
Lloyd from Wales was our driver and guide and an absolute expert in all things Normandie. Punctual pick-up from an easy to find meeting place. Comfortable bus with overhead video screen which gave interesting insight to the places we would see and accounts from those who were there before us. We visited all the important must see spots such as Utah and Omaha beaches, the American Cementary, but also enjoyed some places and stories at many of the lesser known destinations in the area. He was able to get us very close to experiencing Normandie as the wonderful people in Normandie did on D-Day. We enjoyed lunch in a restored cafe offering a variety of salads and sandwiches. I support seeing this area with a guide. So much to see . . . And so much you will miss if you aren't an expert. All 4 of us loved what we saw and how we got to see it. Enjoy!
Jon, our tour guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable about even the smallest of details of everything related to before, during and after the D-Day invasion. His facts and information, along with being on the various beaches, etc, made the whole D-Day experience come alive for me in a way I will NEVER forget. Of all the tours on my recent European trip. this one made the biggest and most lasting impression. This tour gets an A from me.
Ian was a fantastic tour guide with plenty of humour. Had a wealth of knowledge and provided enough time for people to have free time to look around after he had explained what happened in that area.
What an amazing experience. The multimedia experience made it all so real. Especially the clips of the men that were there. Our driver and tour guide had been studying World War II since he was a kid. He was so knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Small details that rounded out the story were his specialty. The group is limited to 12 so it wasn't a huge bus. Lunch was a sandwich, soft drinks, chips and a sweet.
Lloyd was our guide and I highly recommend him. The overall experience was touching, moving and very informational. Lloyd brought so much subject knowledge and a gift for storytelling to every location. Excellent day spent with an equally excellent guide.
I cannot imagine a better tour of the WW II battlefields and an historical account. Our guide was a gifted story teller and was passionate about the subject. He not only provided key facts, he presented lessons learned from the various assaults, e.g., the importance of being able to improvise when plan A does not work. Lunch was tasty and atmospheric. Educational and emotionally stirring.
Lloyd was our guide and he was fantastic. Clearly has a great interest and passion to the D-Day experience. I highly recommend him.
Totally amazing! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour worth the money. I would have missed so much if I have drove around to the sites on my own.
The large van was comfortable and some videos were played on a monitor in the front to keep you informed. Our guide, Lloyd was very insightful and a fantastic storyteller. Stops included small chapels with supplemental stories plus the beaches.The trip is long, but perfect for anyone with only 1 day
It's sobering to walk the battlefield where so many Americans gave their lives to open a doorway to the European continent and enable the Allies to defeat Hitler and the Nazi's. Our tour guide Jon was extremely knowledgeable, he had more than enough information to keep the tour interesting and he only scratched the surface of what he knows. This was my second tour with this company, the previous trip was their half-day. This is absolutely worth the money and time, you will not be disappointed.
We wanted to see all the WWII sights in one day. This tour covered everything. It was amazing and our guide John did an amazing job of giving us all the details on each of the sights we visited. That day it was very cold and rainy but that did not negative impact the trip. I thought I was very familiar with all the Day Invasion details but found out that I was very mistaken.
Our guide John was both French and English and also gave us great insight to all that had occurred over the course of the D Day invasions. I would highly recommend this tour.
By far one of the best tours I have ever taken. Our Tour Guide was exceptional and the places we visited were moving and rewarding. It was a full day but we never felt rushed. Van was comfortable. Lunch was delicious.
Lloyd was absolutely awesome. His knowledge, enthusiasm, and teaching style absolutely made the day.
Our guide Charles Liddell merits special mention as he did a superb job. Ask for Charles if you can.
He had a presentation booklet of photos of special heroes on D-Day that was very enlightening. He really did a good job.
The day was wonderful and sobering, our guide was excellent, he had great passion for information and tour.
We had a fabulous tour. John was terrific. He is very knowledgeable and engaging. We saw so much in one day and learned a lot!
Very organized and informative tour. Guide was well versed in history. Can't be missed! Be ready for a full day.
