Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip
Reviewed by: Julia L, October 2014
This is a long day, but it doesn't feel like it. Fascinating history, and chilling views of the inside of the remaining German bunkers. The drawback is that by taking you to so many places, you don't get a great deal of time at any of them. Some locations only give 5-10 minutes. The museum/memorial was fascinating (again, could have used more time). Lunch was a delicious, pleasant surprise. Be prepared for your dinner stop being a highway rest area. Lots to choose from, but it is a gas station store. The guides were very good, and our bus-mates were great. Spend your time in the American cemetery wandering the stones. It's a very moving experience.

This was the highlight of our trip. I wish we would have taken a 2 day tour as we felt rushed at times.
Would have liked to spend more time at Juno Beach but we were on on the American tour. Thank you to the troops who helped carve out our lives to make this a better place in life to live.

We (4 adults) had a wonderful tour. We lucked out with perfect weather which made the sights even more moving. Our guide was a little difficult to understand but very nice and helpful and enjoyable. The van would have been a bit of a problem if there were 4 couples as one couple would be separated and one has to sit in the middle of two people. The lunch was awesome - both the beautiful location and fabulous meal.We were four women - mom and 3 adult daughters. Memories for a life time. I would use Viator again without a second thought.

This tour was simply amazing. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the events of the Normandy landings. The museum in Caen contained lots of info on the invasion, and was well presented. The provided lunch was also very good. Although a very long day, the only negative I found was that there was minimal tine left for the Juno beach museum. Being Canadian, I would have preferred to have more time to explore the site of the Canadian landings, and also time to visit the Canadian soldiers cemetery. Overall, I would highly reccomend this tour. It is a must do if you are in France.
