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
After viewing the Bayeux Tapestry in the morning we we collected at our hotel by Jonathan and a full van. The American Cemetery was closed because of the USA government shut down. Jonathan smoothly substituted the German Cemetery. He was very knowledgeable about the war and the allies. We are Australian and he tried to involve us as well as the other nationalities on the tour, Irish and American. His English was easily understood. A microphone would have helped though. I can thoroughly recommend the tour especially if you have Jonathan.Reviewed by: Robert M, October 2013
Great Tour. guide was interesting and informative. Only problem was the American Cemetery being closed.Reviewed by: Philip A. B, October 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
My guide "Guy" was very friendly. He seemed to know everything that needed to be known, but didn't overwhelm us tourists with too much information unless we asked for it.
I would suggest providing a taller van that folks can stand up in. It was difficult for the older members of the tour to climb in and out of their seats.
Also, due to the US government shutdown, the American cemetery was closed. While I understand that this is out of the hands of the tour company, I think it would have been good business to alert those guests who had already signed up for the tour as a courtesy.
