We loved the tour. Our guide, Mathieu sp? was fantastic and so knowledgable about Normandy, WWII, the politics at the time, history he had a great answer for each of our many, many questions. This 1/2 day tour was good for my family of six with two small children.

Our guide was François. He picked us up from Lion d'Or in Bayeux and also picked up others from the Bayeux train station. We rode in a 9 passenger van.
He was an energetic, friendly guide with fluent English a fun personality and also a deep understanding of Normandy and the sites that we visited. In fact he grew up in Caen and shared personal tidbits about his family's history with WWII.
All three sites were amazing. Please note there is a museum/information center at the American Cemetery that I would highly recommend visiting. We didn't know about it and so we weren't able to go. The tour roughly gave us 15 minutes of personal time at Pointe du Hoc and Omaha beach and then 1 hour at the American Cemetery. I would suggest spending more time at the Pointe du Hoc and Omaha beaches and less time in the Cemetery.
Take this tour! It was so helpful to have a guide explain the historical facts and point out the different places things happened and why things occurred the way they did. Hands down a great use of money and time.

Outstanding! From the accomidating last-day booking to the professional and personable tour guide (thanks Mathieu!), we were thrilled with the experience. We LOVED the charming town of Bayeux and each of the sites of the tour, especially Omaha Beach, Pont do Hoc and the beautiful U.S. cemetery. Awesome!

Emilie. Tour guide was outstanding and took the time to explain and answer questions. We booked the tour an hour prior to start and were very impressed as we only had half a day to spend. Would recommend for those that want a small group and time to walk on their own in addition to learning
