Pick up at train station was on time; tour guide was excellent, even helped with place for dinner in Bayeux. Small size of tour in van (8 people) made it very personable. My presence on Omaha Beach was very moving, since my Dad had landed there on D-Day and was wounded just a few days later. GREAT TOUR!
We stayed in Paris, so we took the train to Bayeux that morning and had a wonderful lunch at a cafe near the train station. Ann-Sophie met our tour group in front of the station, and we drove to Pointe du Hoc, where the Army Rangers fought. She told us about the history and the strategies of D-Day, and she pointed out related sites and geography along the way. After Pointe du Hoc, we went to Omaha Beach, where we learned about the story of how the American forces landed. After that, we went to the Normandy American Cemetery. There, Ann-Sophie described some of the monuments and gave us time to walk around. We stayed for the playing of Taps and lowering of the flags before she drove us back to Bayeux. We had told our guide that we wanted to see the Tapestry Museum, so she dropped us off there instead of back at the train station, since it was closing soon. She also made recommendations for dinner.
I loved this tour. Not only was Ann-Sophie friendly and knowledgeable, but she also related events of the second world war with the events of today. Nothing could be more powerful than standing on the beaches where our troops and allies died to stop Hitler and being reminded of the fascist ideas that are regaining popularity today. That is a moment that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
This tour was one of the best I have had the pleasure of experiencing. Our guide Adrienne (sp) not only knew his history, but shared his own personal connections with the Normandy area. The half-day tour was also perfect with my seven-year-old son. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting France. It was well worth the train ride out to Bayeux.
Very humbling experience. We were amazed with how appreciative the locals still are with our sacrifices at Normandy.
The tour was excellent. Our guide was Olivier and he is a local from Bayeux so he knew a lot of history and could answer all of our questions.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and really good with our 5 year olds. Definitely recommend for people with kids who don't want to have to plan a whole lot on their own!
Great tour - small 4 of us another family of 3 in a van with a single guide. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and it was a great experience for our family parents 9 and 13 year old boys. Would recommend without hesitation. Half day was the right length for us - others might want a longer tour, but 5 hours was perfect for our 9 year old.
Oh my!! We loved this tour. We thought we could do the visit to Normandy beaches ourselves but opted to get this tour because we did not want to drive. I'm so glad we did it !!! IT IS DEFINITELY WORTH IT! Everything from booking the tour to actually taking it was stress-free. The small group of only 7 people made it very personable. We were a party of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Our tour guide Francois was a walking museum! Extremely knowledgeable and very charismatic. I highly recommend the afternoon tour as this gave us an opportunity to visit several places in Bayeux tapestry, cathedral and WWII museum and in the afternoon we were able to be present at the flag lowering and Taps ceremony at the Omaha American Cemetery.
Wow! What an amazing experience to see the DDay beaches and Normandy American Cemetery. Jonathan was a fantastic tour guide, so passionate and full of knowledge, which made the experience not only informative but truly eye opening. We enjoyed every second. Thank you!
For a half day tour, there was a lot of information covered! Our tour guide Mathieu did I spell this wrong? Probably.. was absolutely amazing and seemed very passionate about the topic. The wide range of knowledge he had regarding D-Day was quite surprising, and greatly appreciated, as our group had a lot of questions that he was quick to respond to. I highly recommend this half day tour if you really want to see and learn about D-Day!
