We were especially impressed by our guide. He was so knowledgeable and such good company. A small group was easy to coordinate and took less time so that more time was spent on the actual sights. The minivan was very comfortable.

The tour was wonderful and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. However, packing nine adults into a minivan for over seven hours of car time was uncomfortable. If you consider this tour you may want to consider one on a bus. The “small group” experience was very cramped.

While we signed up for a small group tour, we ended up getting a private tour, which FAR exceeded our expectations. Reggie was the most amazing tour guide. We learned so much history while touring a beautiful region in France. We highly recommend this tour.

Memorable Day

What a memorable day! Loved every part of the day and choosing a small group tour was the way to go. Omaha beach park as incredible, to see the scale of what our veterans accomplished and overcame. As a Canadian, would have loved to see Juno Beach/Canadian cemetery. Perhaps the tour guides could ask that and accommodate one aspect of that on the trip.

Highlight of trip to Paris was this side trip

Our guide was amazing. Smooth trip. Lovely.tasty reasonably priced lunch. Only bad thing is no speakers in back of van and I couldn’t hear a word. Young folk grabbed the front seats of course. Loved ease of not worrying about finding trains. Van pick up and drop off same location.

History buffs, don’t miss this!

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate about the history. He shared stories about the men who fought in Normandy both from D-day and the years afterward. He also connected what happened in WWII to WWI events to give greater context. For my son, the history buff, this was a highlight of our trip to Europe. It was a 13 hr day with 6-7 hrs of driving to/from Normandy.

Oliver was a knowledgeable tour guide. He explained the different areas in a concise manner. The small group was perfect size. This tour is an introduction to the history of the area. The museum (Overlord) was excellent. Lunch at a small restaurant was great. Get the fish and chips with the local cider.

Nicholas was attentive to all of our needs during the drive and the actual tour. He knew the weather was going to be a challenge so he switched up the schedule so that we would be able to see everything before the rain. It worked out great. Besides his weather skills he was informative polite and made this day the best tour of our trip. My entire family joins me in inviting you to request Nicholas for your tour too.

Great description by the Chauffeur cum guide. Almost felt as a part of WWII. However, as a family we were made to sit in three different rows in minivan. Were told that we signed the fine print contract. Ha ha ... hilarious. If not for the guide , and the location itself, should you still choose this, then be prepared to sit as split family

Our family -- two adults, plus 12- and 10-year-old sons -- consider this to be one of the top highlights of our Parisian vacation. My 12-year-old son in particular has been interested in D-Day for several years now, and we all appreciated the opportunity to visit these important sites. Pascal was an excellent guide. He has an incredible about of knowledge about D-Day and World War II in general, along with the history and geography of Normandy, and did a fantastic job of putting everything into context in a way that even the kids could understand. In particular we appreciated that this tour included a stop at the American Cemetery; we noticed that the other tour groups we encountered at Pointe du Hoc and Omaha Beach weren't there, or at the battery overlooking Gold Beach. This tour is very thorough in visiting many important D-Day sites and so I highly recommend it for anyone, including families, who wants to see as many of the sites as possible.
