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.
Comfortable bus and friendly people. Great experience on beaches and in museum. Cemetery was very moving. Learned a lot. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Comprehensive, well planned tour of Normandy. Knowledgeable guide, although her French accent made it difficult to understand her English at times. Saw everything we hoped to see. First class bus. Long day, but worth it. Very good value.
Even though I had taken this tour two years ago on a larger bus, my son, who had not taken this tour, and I both loved this tour! The small van of 5 people and the drive/guide who was excellent, made the day's trip a fascinating success! In addition, being picked up at the hotel and having lunch, which was wonderful, at a small local farmhouse restaurant/hotel, concluded the day.
This was a FABULOUS trip! Our group was pretty small- only 26 and we were so glad we did it!
The only downside is that I wish we had more time at each location although you wouldn't be able to get to every destination.
I highly recommend it! Our guide was also SO fantastic!
Our guide, Ian, was amazing. His knowledge on WWII and all my follow up questions were second to none. Visiting Gold Beach was especially cool. I look forward to hopefully doing this trip again. Paying extra for the smaller bus was worth it...we were able to zoom in and out of Paris traffic and get back at a reasonable time.
My family really enjoyed this tour. It was nice being picked up in a van that seats 8 so that one could interact with a small group. Our tour guide, Elise, was from Normandy and was passionate about the historical significance of D-Day. We were glad to actually be able to walk on Omaha Beach and never felt rushed. Lunch at the medieval manor was excellent. Highly recommended.

This tour was amazing. This guide was extremely good.
Our guide was delightful and the trip was great. Really enjoyed the lunch and company. Well done!
It was perfect for me since I was only in Paris for 2 days on work. Understand however that, being there only a few hours, it is a quick run through Normandy. To get a thorough appreciation of the museums and sights you should spend a whole day or two in the area. The museum stops were rushed due to the tour schedule but again, it's exactly what I needed.
