We loved the tour, all very informative and well led.
Would have liked a little longer in some places but on the other hand perhaps that would have meant not seeing so much? So on balance, excellent, would recommend to anyone.
We did this trip on June 20 our tour guide was fantastic he was a fountain of knowledge would defiantly recommend this trip thank u

Very good tour, small group, very knowledgeable guide Maz and we visited a lot of sites in one day.
Good value for money.
This tour was well conducted, planned and documented, it quickly toured a number sites in one full day. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave lots of anecdotal information from her parents who directly endured the occupation and subsequently D-Day. There were a number of maps, charts and photos used to thoroughly explain all of the visits and surrounding events. The Normandy area is covered with D-Day sites and they cannot all be covered in one day. This was a best compromise to get a feeling for the battlefield and what went on during the first few days of the allied invasion on D-Day. A trip to Omaha beach effectively showed what the Soldiers were up against once they got on to the beach and off of it into the hedgerows and small fields inland from the beach. Other sites included Sword beach British, the Pegasus Bridge where British glider troops assaulted and held two critical bridges, Merville Artillery Battery which very effectively showed life in a German gun position and a British military cemetery as well as the American cemetery at overlooking Omaha beach. I would recommend this trip for first time visitors to the area or those who have not done extensive reading on the events surrounding D-Day.
Francois was very engaging and explained everything really well. He made the tour appropriate to our group of 8 which contained 3 different Nationalities and a wide range if ages.
This tour was superb.Our guide,Mag,was absolutely fantastic and it was a joy to have spent the whole day with her.My son and I hope to come again soon and hope that our guide will be Mag.i would give the tour 6 stars.
Fantastic trip. Our tour guide was excellent and really brought alive the story of the D-Day beaches. Although it is quite a long day, we would certainly recommend this trip to other travellers.
We thought the tour very informative and were pleased with the content. We got to see all that we could in the time allotted. Very comprehensive and filled our need.
