The trip was just as we hoped it would be. We had only half a day and it was amazing what she covered. We got to the beaches before the huge groups and it was virtually private! We loved that there were only six of us in a small van so we could communicate easily throughout the trip. She was a charming guide and very knowledgeable. Exactly what we wanted.
Our tour guide was excellent! She and her family are from the area and she brought personal stories with pictures into the text-book history. It made the experience even more special. This was a highlight of our trip, especially being able to experience the area with our military-aged young men on July 4th. We highly recommend spending more time honoring those that went before us!
Very good tour, our guide was from Normandy so she was very informative and enthusiastic. Went to Point du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American Cemetery. Definitely worth doing.
Great short tour if you are pressed for time. Would be better to do longer if you can. Our guide spoke good English and was very knowledgeable. Well worth doing.
Hadrian was an excellent guide-very well informed and spoke excellent English. I highly recommend.
Francois provided a very detailed and thorough explanation of events.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and the group size was perfect. We loved being at Pont du Hoc first thing. We were alone out there and it just added to the tour. Thank you so much for such a great experience!
Great tour. Our guide picked us up on time and was full of information about the history and the area. The guide was from the area and spoke English well. We only had time for a half day tour and would recommend it if you don't have time for the full day tour. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
I'm just sorry we only did a half day tour, I highly recommend a full day tour.
Meaningful and enjoyable trip with a tour guide that had a passion for the history of D-Day.
Great tour I learned so much more than we had done a self guided tour.
It was the highlight of our trip! Sunny our tour guide was informative and entertaining. I would highly recommend booking with Viator!
Highly recommend! Great insite, excellent explanations and knowable tour guide.
Meg was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. We loved all the history and stories that she was able to provide.
We enjoyed the tour very much. The tour guide was prompt picking us up at our hotel and he was extremely knowledgable about the D- Day invasion. We had visited the American Cemetery the previous evening when no one was there at the end of the day and it was a different experience compared to the morning of the tour where the ground maintence workers were using their leaf blowers and there were many more visitors. Given that I would clearly recommend the tour if you only have a half day to devout in the region.
Didn't end up taking the tour because my whole group was not able to attend. Did rent a car and drive from Paris... about 25 Euro in tolls there. Absolutely amazing experience and will go back again if given the chance. What a great fourth of july!
This tour is recommended if you only have half a day. The tour covers Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetary. The commentary of the guide was comprehensive and gave us a true sense of the Allies' acheivements and sacrifice. Take the full day tour if you want more.
Jean Francois was exceptional. He arrived a few minutes early to pick us up at our hotel. His English was fluent. He had many images in a notebook to accompany what he was explaining which gave extra insight into the facts of the day. He was flexible and eager to please. He took time to essentially give the tour twice since our group included an older gal who used two crutches due to recent knee surgeries. He kept us moving along and then went back to her, to explain everything. Very professional and courteous!
Outstanding tour, The guide was very good and easy to understand and knew the history well.
Beth was our tour guide, and she was hands down, the best tour guide we've ever had- thanks Beth for making Berlin so memorable- Kate and Lou Brannan
