We had an incredible experience. Olivier was a fantastic guide-- he was beyond knowledgeable, enthusiastic and answered all of our questions. Our visit was awe-inspiring and sombering. We appreciate the opportunity and are thankful we took this tour. We cannot recommend it highly enough!
Our tour guide, David, was wonderful. With 20 years of experience, he was knowledgeable, flexible, and did a fabulous job of explaining the history we were seeing in a way that impacted everyone in our group - not just the history buffs. I look forward to recommending this tour to all of my friends and family.
I was fortunate with the choice of tour guide sent to my hotel to pick me up. Since the other part of the reserved tour cancelled it was just me and Adrian, the tour guide in a very comfortable van. The day spent in his company was both enjoyable, informative and interesting. I was able to engage in discussions with him regarding the topics and also was able to spend as much time possible to take plenty of photos. Im sure had there been other members of the tour there still would have been quality time and information given by Adrian.
Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and well organized.
I had an opportunity to go on this tour with my family. Definitely worth it.
Excellent tour and excellent tour guide. The tour guide was great!!! Thank you so much.
It was wonderful - a little emotional at the American cemetery for Americans. Great tour guide I think Francois was his name. Highly recommend! Watch a few movies or documentaries before you go to refresh your memory such as The Longest Day. Pick-up went as planned and tour ran just as advertised.
We recently spent 15 days in France-primarily in the Paris area. HOWEVER, the 2 days we spent around Bayeux AND ESPECIALLY at the Normandy D-day beaches were far and away the highlight of our entire 15 day trip! Seeing the German cemetary with 21,000 souls was very humbling. Then to go onward to Utah and Omaha Beaches, St Mere Eglise where many of the paratroopers landed to soften the region in preparation of the sea invasion, and Pont Du Hoc with the German gun emplacements will be things that I will forever carry with me! Anjd if you get David as your tour guide---BONUS!!! David was so knowledgeable, kind, and informative-he is certainly much of what made our tour so forever memorable!
We had a wonderful time and experience on this tour. Francois was a terrific guide and was very enthusiastic and conveying the knowledge he had obtained from studying history. He had a terrific personality and was very easy to interact with. It was a highlight of our time in France and we would do it again in a heartbeat. We are very grateful for meeting him and for seeing this wonderful area of France.
The tour to the Normandy battlefields was excellent. Our guide, Kate, spoke perfect English. Her knowledge about the war and battlefields was exceptional. She started giving us information from the moment we joined the tour. Although the tour last around eight hours, we felt that it just flew by. I would highly recommend Kate to all future travelers.
Pick up from the Bayeux train station made this excursion very easy! Our Guide, Sunny, was extremely knowledgeable.
It was the highlight of our trip.
We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the various sites. Highly recommended.
This tour was great -- perfect tour size only 8, our guide was awesome and the tour hit the major sites we wanted to visit. Everything about it... the information, the included lunch, the traveling between sites -- was comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour.
Well planned. I have forgotten our driver's name since this is 6 weeks after our tour. He was very knowledgeable. Van was comfortable. I would recommend this tour. We had never visited France before and wanted to see the D-Day landing areas. We stayed in Port en Bessin. Would have been better if we had stayed in Bayeau. But, was only a short drive to train station and parking was free.
Our tour guide, Kate, was wonderful. Articulate, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a storehouse of information. We enjoyed our visit to the American and German cemeteries, Utah and Omaha beaches, Pont du Hoc, St Mere Eglise and other sites. Well worth the money spent-very emotional and memorable experience. Thanks Kate and Viator!
This tour was fabulous and was one of the highlights of our three week visit to France. Our guide, Olivier was friendly and knowledgeable. We liked the fact that we were a small group and we enjoyed the other people in the group. Our lunch stop and food were great. We were very moved by the American Cemetery. Olivier took a lot of time here talking about different grave sites and explaining how the cemetery was planned and cared for by the French people. Thank you for honoring our young soldiers.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. Matt was incredibly knowledgeable and we appreciated being able to see so much in the full day tour. This is a very sobering experience and the day was capped off with the lower of the American flag and taps being played at the American cemetery. I know I wasn't the only one with tears streaming down my face!
This tour was amazing! We could have never understood the complexity of the invasion day without the context that our guide Francois provided. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. It seemed very important,to him that we understand the difficulties of the invasion day and the hardships the soldiers faced not only on that day but in the months to come. He has certainly read and studied a lot of history and it showed. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Francois.
Great day! Gave a good basis from which to decide what else we wanted to do. Small group meant the guide was able to give us a personal tour and answer any questions we had.
Maybe the best part of our three-week trip. Bayeux is a great little town. This tour was moving and fascinating. Our guide was exceedingly knowledgeable and enthusiastic and his vehicle was the perfect size for our six person group.
Mattieu, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and generous with his time. The pacing of the day was perfect and at the end, we were moved to see an American veteran of WWII accept the flag after the honor ceremony.
Our guide for both this tour and our Mont St Michel tour was Matthieu. He was the best! His knowledge of the history and some of the tid bits that you'd never get from the books, in addition to his charm and wit, made our day delightful.
Tour guide, Adrian, was prompt, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about the area.
