This tour was amazing, the tour guides were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of the american soldiers that disembarked there in WWII. Also the chateauxs were interesting.
Great tour. Loved it. Our guide, Fliorence H, was wonderful! She was knowledgeable and very interesting.
Our tour guide, Dominique, was exceptional. Her knowledge and English was excellent. She gave us the right amount of information both on the bus while driving through towns and while touring the different sights. She also gave us great tips for our free time. It would have been nice to have a little more time at Omaha Beach and a little less time at the Graves, but that wasn't her choice. We highly recommend this tour.
We saw a lot of France during those 3 days. I like the hotels and the food that came with the tour. The bus was comfortable and the people were nice. Thumb up!
The whole tour was very well organized ...the hotels were very good ...all the people who worked for this tour were very polite and helpful ....
I can't rate this highly enough! The tour was very well organized from the informative guides to the hotel accommodations to the meals. Everything was punctual and professional. The blend of sites was amazing. We felt we had learned and seen so much in those 3 days!

Travellers ; a family of 5, children aged 11, 15 and 17.
Booking: as usual, booking with Viator is easy as well as the communication with them, when need.
Tour: mainly historical and cultural but also very nice sightseeing for people not into history.
Hotels: 1. Novotel Caen: a tired hotel in a desolate area, good enough for a 1 night stay, just to sleep.Nice staff.I've read good reviews about the food there, but in our case, you could see dinners having nice food while tour groups were all served " something" without beeing given an option (many plates were barely touched). Even airlines in economy seats give you an option !.
2. Mercure Gare...: Nice hotel, the dinner was in a restaurant outside the hotel, also no menu options but this time food was good. PLEASE Viator, negociate dinner options.
Tour guide: Ours was Mr. Carlos Martinez, a knowlegeable and very sympathetic guy who added humour to every visit.
Transport: Very comfortable coach. Some stretches of road could be very long, but one could easily nap (much needed)
The experience: it was a very nice and enjoyable tour for every member of our family.Everything was timely and very well organised.
TOTALLY WORTH IT.
One warning: the beaches of Normandy were rather rushed, so make sure you explore that region FAST. Don't spend too much time looking at the grave sites.
This is a great way to see many sites without the hassle of arranging travel and hotels. And best of all, Florence, our guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining. Everything was well planned and although we all would have enjoyed more time at each location, that's not possible when you want to see so many places in only 3 days. There wasn't any stop on this tour we didn't love!
Definitely recommend this tour. Much easier taking this tour to get to the places you want to see than by driving and stressing about parking, roads, and hotels. The trip will well worth the value and the tour guides were also fantastic, knowledgable and had everything organized flawlessly. The only negative is that you feel like you could spend more time in each place, but really that is probably true of most everywhere you go. It would be great if the tour could work out the 2nd day drop off for those only taking the two day tour a little better - you leave Mont St. Michel, travel to St. Malo, and then return to Mont. St. Michel before going to Angers for the night. Seemed like a lot of extra travel and time lost for those going on the 3 day or 4 day tour. Regardless, the tour is still worth this slight inconvenience.
