If you want a fascinating, in-depth tour of the Normandy beaches and other D-Day sites, this is the one to take! Seeing the grave markers in the American cemetery after hearing the heroic and harrowing stories of the invasion was especially moving for me.
I am not a history buff in the least and would highly recommend this tour. It was informative, interesting, nice small groups, comfortable traveling and well organized.
Our tour guide was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in D-Day.
My husband and I took this day trip from Paris, and it was a real treat from start to finish. We really appreciated that we had only 6 people, and we were driven around in a van, not a bus. Our guide was wonderful - she was knowledgeable about the area and the history behind the events that occurred there. I am not a history buff, but I found the subject matter fascinating and sobering. We were well taken care of from the moment we stepped off the train in Caen until the van dropped us off again that afternoon. Even the lunch at the museum was incredible I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the Normandy sites.
This tour was amazing!!!!! Our tour guide was the best! He was French but had traveled to the US to learn about our culture and talk with WWII vets. We did the American tour and we spent just enough time at each site to learn all the background. Only 6 people in the van so our guide made it personable and was able to answer all of our questions. The lunch at the Caen Museum was out of this world!!! Definitely recommend this tour!
This tour was fantastic. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather(didn and #39;t pay extra for it either!)
We were met at the train station and made to feel comfortable from the first moment. guides were knowledgable and personable. Even my teenagers enjoyed it! Thank you Cecile and Laurent!
It is a long day from Paris, but worth every minute. The American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer is one of the most moving places I have ever been.
If you want to do a day trip to Caen and experience the Dday beaches from Paris, this is the tour to take. Our guide Mario was incredibly nice and knowledgeable. Keep in mind!- you could spend 2 weeks here learning about everything so it does feel a little rushed, but that and #39;s a day tour for you.
Excellent tour! The drivers and guides were prompt, courteous, professional, and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend it. It is an all day tour...small group 6-7 people in mini vans. Good lunch included.
My mom and I spent the day on the D-Day Tour during our visit to Paris. It was so well worth it! Pray that you get Mario- he was absolutely amazing! The train system was easy and they were right there when we arrived to Caen. You start off at the museum which is so well spent and organized. I recommend taking time to wander outside to the gardens then go into the bunker. We didn't feel rushed at different sites, they gave you time to wander on your own, and some of the places have little stores for snacks, coffees, beverages etc. Again, I highly recommend this for a day trip.
What a wonderful tour. Very educational. Our guide, Mario, did a great job. He gave us details we would not have picked up on our own. It made the whole tour so much meaningful.
It rained some and was cool and sometimes windy. Definitely bring layers for your comfort, no matter the time of year.
