A highlight of our trip. Our guide Mr. Cardinale is a lifelong resident of the area and historian with impressive knowledge and personal passion for these weighty sites. He also provided good doses of spunky humor, and good cheer. It was a fascinating and moving day. Top recommendation.
One of the best tours ever. Tour guide Francois was not only knowledgeable, but passionate. You had to stand on Omaha beach to truly understand what troops faced on D-Day.
Absolutely wonderful young man, Antoine, took us on an amazing tour! He was very knowledgeable and very personable. Wouldn't have missed this for the world. Every American needs to see Normandy at least once in their lifetime!
Our tour guide was great and very knowledgeable about what happened in Normandy.
Our tour was excellent and our tour guide, Adrian, was impressive. He was very knowledgeable of all the history around the D-Day landing events. We would recommend this tour to anyone in the future.
Adrien M. was a phenomenal guide! We learned so much from this entertaining, articulate, and knowledgeable young man. His portfolio of war photos to accompany our tour showed us exactly where we were standing on D-Day. We had time to wander on our own at all 3 places too.
We loved the tour. Our guide, Mathieu sp? was fantastic and so knowledgable about Normandy, WWII, the politics at the time, history he had a great answer for each of our many, many questions. This 1/2 day tour was good for my family of six with two small children.
Romin was a fabulous tour guide!!!!! A ver enjoyable,informative and moving trip.
Francois was a great guide and we felt that the tour was very important and informative.
Our guide was François. He picked us up from Lion d'Or in Bayeux and also picked up others from the Bayeux train station. We rode in a 9 passenger van.
He was an energetic, friendly guide with fluent English a fun personality and also a deep understanding of Normandy and the sites that we visited. In fact he grew up in Caen and shared personal tidbits about his family's history with WWII.
All three sites were amazing. Please note there is a museum/information center at the American Cemetery that I would highly recommend visiting. We didn't know about it and so we weren't able to go. The tour roughly gave us 15 minutes of personal time at Pointe du Hoc and Omaha beach and then 1 hour at the American Cemetery. I would suggest spending more time at the Pointe du Hoc and Omaha beaches and less time in the Cemetery.
Take this tour! It was so helpful to have a guide explain the historical facts and point out the different places things happened and why things occurred the way they did. Hands down a great use of money and time.
Outstanding! From the accomidating last-day booking to the professional and personable tour guide (thanks Mathieu!), we were thrilled with the experience. We LOVED the charming town of Bayeux and each of the sites of the tour, especially Omaha Beach, Pont do Hoc and the beautiful U.S. cemetery. Awesome!
Emilie. Tour guide was outstanding and took the time to explain and answer questions. We booked the tour an hour prior to start and were very impressed as we only had half a day to spend. Would recommend for those that want a small group and time to walk on their own in addition to learning
Our tour was fantastic! Francois spoke beautiful English and was extremely knowledgeable. He made sure everyone in our group was comfortable and understood. He had pictures and maps that really helped bring it all together. Overall it was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide, Jonathan, was prompt about picking us up at the train station. At our first stop. Pointe du Hoc, you can walk among the ruins of the German defense positions and get a good feel of what the Allies were facing. The beach and cemetery were incredible also.
It was an incredible experience.Our tour was made all the more perfect by our guide Sunni. She was extremely knowledgeable. couteous and friendly. 5 stars.
Well EMILY. made our trip so worthwhile. Her energy, clarity, ability to even anticipate questions was simply wonderful and remarkable.
The pictures she shared to emphasize what it was like we're extremely helpful
Wonderful Trip and great guide. We did the half-day tour, which is about right. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in history.
Great service hotel pick up and on time with enough information and time to self explore.
Highly recommend. The owner met us and stopped and showed us the German cemetery and then dropped us off at Point de Hoc to meet our guide. She was also first rate.
good guide. English not great but she was nice little late on pick up but got it all ii
