Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

Amazing and moving experience! Very nice for first-time visitors who want to see a lot in a short amount of time. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and efficient--keep an eye on your watch because they keep you moving! Only downside was that we didn't get to spend a lot of time at the beaches themselves, but for the money, it was very worthwhile.

Loved the trip - definitely want to go back and spend more time. You don't have a great deal of time at each location but that can be expected with just a day trip from Paris. Ricardo was our tour guide and was absolutely great. I recommend this to anyone wanting to do a day trip from Paris to Normandy.

We loved every minute from the ride through the French countryside to the arrival at the first stop, which was an amazing preparation for the first real stop at the Normandy beaches. The arrival at the burial place was overwhelmingly emotional. We felt so lucky to be in the presence of so many who gave so much. Great tour guide was with us for the day.

The Normandy D Day Beaches tour was fabulous. It was a small group tour with 8 couples. Our guide/driver was fantastic and gave us a complete history of the region and not just WWII. He was very knowledgeable. He was a great driver and very personable. We were picked up from our hotel early as CityVision was supposed to call us to change our pick up time but didn't. Our driver wanted to get out earlier as it was Bastille Day and he wanted to beat traffic. The stops were great and we had adequate time everywhere except for Juno Beach. We spent a lot of time at the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach likely because 6 of the couples were American and we only got 20 minutes on Juno Beach. The lunch was fantastic at a Normandy farm. There was a cheese course, chicken and potatoes and a dessert trio with wine. We were even returned to our hotel ahead of time due to the great driving of our guide.

this was a great tour, the museum was very educational, Juno beach was impressive and the cemetery really allowed one to realize how many young soldiers died on and around DDay!
