A day trip that was very interesting, good english speaking guide and lots of very touching war sites. Even the weather was very beatiful. We travellen in a van, 6 people, very comfortable and the whole day was very impressive and can be recommended to all that are interested in historical events.

This was an excellent day trip from Paris. Regis was a helpful guide who drove well and had very good knowledge about everything we saw, he was also interested in war history and made it interesting for us too.I was impressed with how beautiful and peaceful the memorials are and it was good to visit a wide range of places and learn so much about what went on in different parts of the landscape. It is a plus to to be picked up close to where one is staying in Paris and also be returned back there again especially when the trip starts so early in the morning.
