Amazing. Very emotional when you actually see where you have read about for years.To imagine thousands of teens in that situation- and see what they had to overcome... Everyone should go there.
Normandy was on my bucket list and joining this trip with Viator was the perfect way to get it done. I learned much, saw as much as possible, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I paid to be picked up at my hotel but my ride did not show and I did not want to risk missing the tour so I took a taxi. They immediately paid for my taxi and refunded me the pick up fee. Thanks Viator for a great tour!
The tour was amazing. It was so informative. It is long. It is a 4 hour bus trip going to Normandy, and 4 hours back. This was the only drawback. However the guides were outstanding, and knowledgeable.
Fabulous tour. My son and husband loved it and wished they could have stayed longer at each stop. Their guide, Francis, was filled with valuable information. They raved about this trip.

Excellent full day experience, knowledgeable guide and quite an emotional experience. Lunch was really nice at the Caan mememorial restaurant.
great tour very moving. The guide was very informative and pleasant. Would highly recommend this.
Our guide was great, she was knowledgeable and helpful. It was a busy day but didn't feel too rushed except at the beach stops though I understand why that has to be for driving time constraints. An excellent job fitting a lot in for those of us who have only a day to spend seeing as much as possible!
Our tour guide Chris was great. She was well-versed on the history of Normandy and the D-Day beaches, and also witty. We enjoyed this trip very much, and felt it was a good value for the dollar. My only constructive criticism is, I did note when booking specific dietary restrictions that didn't seem to get translated over to the actual restaurant. When we notified Chris, she handled it with ease. Overall, we had a really great day trip, and I would recommend this trip.
An excellent tour covering the history and sites of the D-Day landings of the Americans, British and Canadians. Our guide Christen was very thorough and knowledgeable and she made the tour very enjoyable. Highly recommend.
Very nice day trip out of Paris. Knowledgeable tour guide and the group size was just right. It's just a day trip. So, don't expect to see all the beaches and spend a lot of time there. You need more time to do that. This was my second time to Normandy-the first time, my family and I spent about a week and took our time experiencing each beach and the museums for each. This is a good introductory visit.
Such a memorable and moving experience. The ride across the country was beautiful as the canola flowers were in full bloom and were absolutely gorgeous. It was very impactful to see the beautifully manicured grounds with so many memorials.
The tour guide was excellent kept us informed on the background and historical significance of each stop. The driver and bus were all excellent plenty of room to stretch out. The provided lunch included wine and was delicious. The tour covered all of the major point of interest, Unfortunately time was limited at each stop preventing a more through visit but given the distances needed to cover from Paris to all of the Stops would have been impossible to do in one day otherwise. We truly enjoyed the tour and
Our only regret was not making better use of our free time at the Caen museum as there was so much to see but little time.
Military historians will love this tour. Nice balance between historical significance and scenery.
This tour was everything we hoped for and more. Our guide, Vincent, was amazingly knowledgeable, and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed his commentary and appreciated his detailed explanations. The included lunch was incredible! We highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful trip! Long day with much to see and visit but worth every moment. The Caen museum set the scene for the day as well as providing a very complete lunch. Visiting Pointe du Hoc with its 100 foot cliffs and German concrete bunkers gives an understanding of the commitment and bravery shown by some many young troops. Walking on Omaha beach and seeing the width of the beach at low tide, combined with German fortifications on the bluffs, is humbling. A visit the American cemetery topped off the day to salute those that gave all during the invasion. The tour was well paced and the guides historical overview enhanced the trip.
It was a 14 hour day but well worth it! It put the exclamation point on a great week long stay in Paris. Check in and loading was very efficient. Be there a half hour before departure. Seats were comfortable and there was a washroom on the bus. Our guide did a great job in recapping how WW 2 began and what led up to D Day. It put everything into context. Stops were well timed. I highly suggest that everyone adhere to the timing. Waiting an extra 10 minutes for one person takes 10 minutes off the next stop for everyone. Lunch was amazing. Something there for everyone. Plus we got to sit and chat with people around us and it made it more personal. The stops and ride through the small villages really made the history come to life. Well done!
This was an absolutely wonderful experience! Our guide, Elisa. was lovely and shared insights all along the way. She picked us up right on the dot at our hotel early, like 6:30, gave us broad background on Normandy and the areas we were driving though. The visit to Omaha Beach was very moving. My father was in WWII, and I had an uncle who was at Sainte Mere Egise D Day 3. All of our lives we have heard about and studied WWII. Seeing the actual beaches, the bunkers and the graves was a very moving and important experience for us. After touring the beaches, we had a truly exceptional lunch at a old country estate, with the usual divine French wine, which helped with some napping on the drive home after a long day. My husband and I would absolutely recommend this tour. We went in a van with 8 people, and it seemed a lot more manageable than a big bus tour. A big thank you to Elisa! I know she does other tours in and around Paris, and if we are so lucky to visit Paris again, we will look for these folks.
This was a very full but incredible day especially with our tour guide. She was extremely informative during the lengthy drive and at the 3 beaches that we visited. DDay and the following almost 3 month long battle and the terrain and obstacles they survived and lives sacrificed was felt during this visit.
Truly a humbling experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and made a long trip more exciting with his stories to and from Normandy.
Standing at Pointe Du Hoc gives you an amazing connection with all that fought there. The American Cemetery gives you the scope of the cost of freedom.
Loved this tour! My husband picked this trip because he is always reading about WWII and wanted to see and place some of the places he always read about. I found it interesting seeing the war from another perspective. We always read about the United States experiences, but I enjoyed seeing the French and German side. We were not disappointed. Our tour guides we extremely nice and shared quite a bit of information along the way. The museum we stopped at was very well done and the lunch was very good. The stops at the beaches and cemetery were informative and we had just enough time at each one and didn't feel rushed.
It was a very well organized tour and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the history of WWII.
