We traveled to Normandy from Paris with BlueFox Tours. Our guide, Tahj, picked us up in a comfortable minivan and took our family of four, including 10 y/o and 13 y/o sons, on a wonderful tour of multiple beaches, American Cemetery for taps, Overlord Museum. He gave such rich history to go along with what we were seeing. We enjoyed crepes for lunch and learned about cider making before returning to Paris.

Having a local guide and a small group allows you to see things larger groups do not. Just the right amount of time to see the highlights

Oliver brought the history of D-Day to life for me. His detailed knowledge is summarized into meaningful historic events which allowed me to understand the reason behind decisions related to the invasion and bad decisions that cost many lives.

I will always use La Vacanza Travel when visiting historic sites because they provide depth and breadth that is priceless.

Thank you Oliver

Tour was well worth the cost. I have read a lot about WWII, but seeing the actual places really completes the story for me. The visit to the American cemetery where 9800 are buried was deeply moving. Our guide was Fantastic, easily the best tour guide I have had on any tour with any company. He was very knowledgeable about the D-Day events, and I even learned some tidbits from him that I did not know. Lunch was at a very nice restaurant and wasn't very expensive. The Cider tasting was ok, was not like the hard cider in many bars....the apple juice there was very tasty, and we ended up buying a small bottle of an apple brandy that they produce.

We loved the tour, the small group, the guide's knowledge and hospitality....was the favorite part of our trip to Paris for my wife.
