Awesome tour guide, phenomenal tour, absolutely worth it! Everything was great on this tour - the Operation Overlord Museum is an amazing timecapsule, the cider tasting was deicious - we all bought something to take home, the views of Omaha Beach are stunning, the ghostly Nazi bunkers are eerie, and the rows upon rows of tomebstones are so sobering. I loved the small tour group - it was just our family and one other. This is a fabulous tour operator and one I would book any tour with. This trip is a must see.
This trip was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it. I went with my Son age 12 and my Father and everyone felt the same way. There is no better way to learn history than by physically seeing the cliffs and battlefields. The Museum we visited was so well done and I learned a great deal. I went on this trip because my Son and Father really wanted to go but at the end of the day it was my favorite experience in France. It was way more interesting and emotional than I anticipated and our guide was such an amazing story teller.
This was a great trip and our tour guide was wonderful!
OUR PRIVATE ,SMALL GROUP TOUR, FROM PARIS TO NORMANDY WAS JUST FABULOUS,,MY HUSBANDS DREAM FOR 10 YEARS,,
NICHOLAS WAS SO INFORMATIVE AND KNOWLEDGABLE,,HE WAS APLEASURE TO BE WITH ,,HIS VAN WAS VERY'
COMFORTABLE,CLEAN AND ,PLENTY OF ROOM TO STRETCH OUT.
NORMANDY IS A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT,, TO PAY RESPECT, TO THE SOLDIERS THAT MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
MY HUSBAND ..A VETERAN,,WAS VERY MOVED BY THE WAY FRANCE TAKES CARE OF THE CEMETARY AND HONORS
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS TOUR,
Great trip! Well worth the money and time. Our guide, Oliver, was superb. Plenty of time at the various stops. Oliver is very knowledgeable and personable. Personally I was a bit disappointed with the museum but the rest of the tour was good. The lunch stop was good with a 10E special, cheeseburger, fries and drink! The cemetery was impressive and we were able to see the lowering of the colors. Very somber. The final stop for cider tasting was fun even though I didn't like the various ciders. I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone. It is a long day with lots of walking but well worth it.
When we decided to visit Paris, my wife immediately told me that she had to go to Normandy. While both of us had fathers who served in the military - neither in WWII as they were too young - as do two of our children now, there was no direct connection. However, it's somewhere she's always wanted to visit and was determined that if she was visiting France there was absolutely no way she wasn't going.
It was by far one of the best days on our vacation that we enjoyed - to be where the fall of Nazi Germany truly began was overwhelming to say the least. Our guide Nicholas was fantastic, he provided information that you read or heard during school - but being there and hearing even more details truly added to our experience. He has made both of us want to go back and read even more about this period in time, when you're there and realize how different things could have been if the Germans had not be defeated - you truly wish everyone had the same opportunity as we did to know how fortunate we are.
Both of us would encourage everyone to take this tour and to just absorb everything you see. We were in a small group of 8 which made it much easier to get around as well ask questions - Nicholas truly made this tour all the better for each of us on it. It was so worth the time we spent, we're looking forward to going back when possible and taking a bit more time to explore all of the locations.
A final word - the American Cemetery was at the end of the tour, a culmination of all that we'd seen you might say. It is absolutely breathtaking, there are no words to really describe how thoughtful as well as beautiful a tribute it is to our fallen military. To be fortunate enough to see this is to remind all of us that freedom truly isn't free.
This tour was fantastic! Ollie was a great tour guide who really brought the history to life. We never felt rushed the whole time. Great tour!
This was probably my favorite day on a 3 week tour of Europe. I came away with so much respect for our soldiers. Our guide was so helpful he was even pushing one of our group around in their wheelchair, so the guy's family could explore without hindrance. He shared so much information and made sure we had enough time at each of the sites we visited. His view of history from the French perspective was also very interesting.

Very nice day trip to WWII sites and moving visit to American cemetery. Guide did an excellent job of getting us to the sites and back to Paris. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant.
The trip was awesome, mainly because we were interested in that portion of history and our guide, Oliver Ollie was excellent. He gave us great information. All in all, a must-do for anyone interested in D-Day landings.
