The beeches and the museums on this tour were terrific. We were impressed with the preservation of some of the bunkers and gun emplacements.
Visiting Normandy battlefields, beaches, and the American cemetery was very emotional for both my husband USMC vet and myself. However, the museum on the trip was interesting, but we spent too long a time at this site and did not get to spend enough time at the battlefields and beaches. Our daughter Navy medically retired and her husband Navy vet found the museum tedious and was extremely disappointed that we did not have a much time at the other sites. Also, the bus ride gave all of us a bit of motion sickness. Furthermore, we did like the hotel pick-up/drop-off option. We would recommend this day trip if they would shorten the museum site visit and extend the battlefields, beaches, and American cemetery site visits.
Remi was our guide, very friendly and he speaks spanish also english because the tour was in english, something good for my father and I, we were the only hispanics on the tour, and he was very attentive with us, if we needed something or that if we understanded what was he talking about in english. The tour was excellent, the food was ok. The time for the Caen Memorial was too short, only 1 hour, but in the other places we had a lot of time. I would like to be added to the tour, to visit the German Memorial, that was near the American one, just to complete all the historical and memorial places.
This tour was everything my son and I hoped it would be. A very long day, we didn't get back into Paris until around 8 pm, but worth every minute. To actually stand in a German bunker, to be on Omaha beach, words cannot describe. This tour was expensive, but worth it
A must see. We rode in a large tour bus from Paris to Normandy. The tour guide was very informative.
Very long day, but well worth it.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Sebastian our driver and Chris our tour guide both did a beautiful job. It's an early start. First stop was the Caen WW II museum and it was a precursor of what we were about to experience, lunch is provided. Chris our guide was excellent in providing us information and history throughout the day. We visited Pointe-du-Hoc, Omaha Beach, the American Cemetery and the Canadian memorial at Juno Beach. It was just wonderful walking where our soldiers bravely sacrificed their lives for our freedom. The entire trip was well worth it and will be a treasured memory. I highly recommend this trip. It was worth every penny.
A friendly, expert guide leads you to some of the most important historic sites from World War 2 and the Normandy landings. You'll also get to know some of the names and faces that fought in these important battles. The American cemetery and Point du Hoc were the most moving to me, but the whole trip was well worth it and will be a treasured memory. It made me want to come back and learn more about the people of Normandy and the sacrifices they made at the time.
This tour was amazing everyone should take the time to go to Normandy. Lunch provided was very nice. This tour was worth every penny
This is an amazing trip. If you want to get to Normandy - D-Day beaches, then this is a good trip and a great value. The bus leaves Paris early in the morning and returns in the evening. The museum provided a beautiful hot lunch, with everything you would want and need, and wine too! And the museum was a great introduction to what we would see during the day. We visited about 3 beaches and were able to go out and walk around and see monuments. The tour guide provided narrative throughout the trip. We also stopped at the cemetery. I highly recommend this trip.
