Philip was a great guide. He did a good job of showing and telling details about the sites and battles that aren and #39;t covered in everyday WW2 info, which definitely increased the value of the tour for me.
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the Normandy invasion. There was not a question that she could not answer. The trip was well-planned and allowed us free time to take photos and spend time where we wanted to.

WOW!! This was an amazing tour. Sophie was our guide and from the moment we got in the van when she picked us up at our hotel to the time she dropped us off, she taught us so much: German Cemetery, Ste. Mere Eglise, Utah Beach, Porte du Hoc, Omaha Beach, American Cemetery. Driving through Normandie roads she pointed out so many interesting areas and what was happening then in 1944. Tour was from 8:30am to 6:00pm. A must if you want to experience the history here. Very sobering. Margie and Bill
Francois is an awesome guide. I would highly recommend this tour with him. It is worth every penny!
My husband and I really enjoyed our tour. Sunny was delightful. She was very well informed about the history, and was able to tell us some great anecdotes about the area since she is a local. She kept the tour on track and on time, and got us back to our hotel first so we could comfortably catch the late train to Paris. The tour helped us maximize our experience in the short amount of time we had in Normandy for this first visit.
I loved every moment of this tour! Our guide François was fabulous! He was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. I learned a massive amount during this tour and walked away totally impressed. You see all the key sights plus a couple more. Book this tour, you won and #39;t be disappointed!
Very knowledgable guide, punctual, organized and friendly. Highly recommend
The tour was so far above my expectations - primarily because of our guide, Matthew. His depth of knowledge, research and photo log, combined with the personal sharing of the stories of his grandparents moved this so far beyond a history lesson and made it an encounter with history.
Our guide, Francois, was excellent. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He grew up in Normandy and could draw on family discussions about the Battle for Normandy which made the tour particularly interesting. He was a pleasure to know. We would highly recommend him.
We had an excellent day long tour of Normandy with our very knowledgeable guide Amelie. The tour was well organized and we never felt rushed as we explored the various places we stopped on the tour. Amelie's knowledge of history is astounding. By far one of the highlights of our France vacation!!
Very good tour. The guide was very informative and gave us time to explore on our own. Thank you!
Jean-Francoise was a great tour guide! He was highly knowledgeable and full of interesting historical stories. The small group atmosphere was nice and I got to know the fellow Americans on the tour in our minivan that day. I'd recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see Omaha and Utah beaches and learn more about their history.
Sunny was a terrific guide! Passionate and well informed on the subject. She was very personable and animated with her delivery! It was very educational.
Our tour guide, Sunny, was fantastic. She made the tour a lot of fun, and we saw so much without ever feeling rushed. The tour ended with the American cemetery and at the end of the day - taps and the lowering of the American flag. Truly moving.
A very comprehensive tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and gave us personal insights which are not seen in mainstreem media. A lot of quiet reflective time at the museums and memorials to take in the enormity of the events and sacrifices that gave us the freedoms we enjoy today. Highly recommend
Our guide had encyclopedic knowledge of D-day and was very engaging. Omaha beach and the American Cemetery were especially memorable. This was on my bucket list of things to do and was the best tour I have ever experienced.
Sunny was an awesome tour guide. She gave us information about the liberation of France during D-day and she also gave us a French perspective of the liberation. Her grandparents lived through the occupation and liberation. Sunny grew up in Normandy. I was so fortunate to have Sunny as our tour guide. I also forgot one of the souvenirs that I had purchased in Sunny's tour van. She came back to return the souvenir to me at the train station.
Matt, our guide picked us up with four other people. We visited two cemeteries (American and German), Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, and drive through one lane roads to see where airfields had been placed and how the remnants are being used. Seeing these out of the way places enhanced our understanding.
Jean-Francois shared his knowledge of the events and actions of the landings at Utah and Omaha beaches, as well as the nearby areas. He was very accommodating, as my wife was having a mobility issue that day. He made a special effort to tell the rest of the tour the stories in some areas and then went back to the van to tell the same story to my wife. I really appreciated his caring attitude. I highly recommend him to anyone that takes the tour. Pete D.
What a wonderful tour. Our guide, Rose, was so knowledgeable and interesting about everything...The Normandy invasion, the surrounding countryside, the affects of the war in this part of France. She answered all of our questions about the site and France and the French in general. Her English skills were excellent. I highly recommend this tour and our guide. We couldn't have been more satisfied.
Had a very good trip and great guide. The tour was thorough and gave us the perspective on the level of commitment our troops made.
