We had an amazing guide take us through the tour. We were picked up in a van at the train station, drove to Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery and Memorial. Our guide took us through some back roads to help us get a feel for the landscape, she gave us lots of history and background in the van while we drove. She also took us out on Omaha beach and drew in the sand to explain exactly the chain of events that happened there. It was a great visual and very powerful. It was also moving to hear the story told from the perspective of a local who really understood the impact of what the war had done and how these events saved the lives of so many.

This is an excellent place to visit and this was an excellent tour. If you go to France, do yourself the favor of coming and seeing the Normandy Beaches and hearing the incredible story of our brave soldiers. It is truly amazing and mind-blowing.

Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot in the 4 hours we had. I only wish we had more time to explore so maybe the full day tour would have been better. Sometimes we got rained on but that happens.

Great tour of Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery with Matthieu. He's a local and his personal experiences of the war made this a wonderful tour.

For us, the half day tour was just right. We visited two beaches as well as the American cemetery. The tour was emotionally moving and half day was enough. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate.

Our guide, Kate, was knowledgeable and experienced. She even adapted the tour times to meet an unexpected schedule issue for the other family that was with us, and yet made sure that our own group was still accommodated.
