We had a limited amount of time and this tour fit the bill. Our guide was well versed on the area, having grown up in Bayeux, and his English was excellent. Made for a really great afternoonReviewed by: Terry W, February 2014
We had an amazing afternoon. Our guide was so knowledgable and was passionate about the area and it's history. Our kids aged 12 and 9 were fascinated and had very little prior knowledge of the history.Reviewed by: Dianne K, January 2014
If I could give this 6 stars, I would. I wish we had done the full day trip but time didn't allow for us to do so.
Our tour guide, Daniel, was very outgoing, friendly, and knowledgeable.
We took the train from Paris and it took two hours. It was well-worth it. We were met at the train station and we left for the tour from there, picking up two other couples along the way.
The tour started at Pont du Hoc, then we went to Omaha Beach, and then ended at the American cemetery and museum.
My grandfather served in WWII (in the Pacific) and my husband is currently active duty Army. The whole experience was beyond educational and extremely sobering. I have always had a deep love and appreciation for our men and women and uniform and seeing this part of history up close and personal was something I will never forget.
We didn't have much time at the end of the evening for the museum, but from what I did see, it is awesome.
If you have the time, do the full tour! I wish we had.Reviewed by: Rachel T, January 2014
BEST TOUR EVER and we have been on a lot of tours. We drove 3 hours from paris to go on this tour and it was well worth it. The tour guide was AMAZING, she was so knowledgeable and eloquent it was like I was watching the history channel. If you are at all interested in WWII or history this is a must see.Reviewed by: Adrienne Q, December 2013
We were in Paris for only 9 days and decided to dedicate 1 day to Normandy. Given the travel time from Paris we really only had half a day, and this tour fit the bill perfectly. We covered the key sights and were very pleased.Reviewed by: Nancy M, December 2013
