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.

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.

We were in Paris for only two days but really wanted to see Normandy Beach. We booked this tour and it was a great decision.. Our guide, Oliver was a history major,, and very knowledgeable about Normandy and Omaha beaches. He was able to explain tactics and answer our questions. He allowed us rime to explore on our own, but gave us plenty of information. We ate at an amazing restaurant where we ordered fresh caught fish and chips, and when we got back to Paris he even gave us suggestions for places to go to dinner that were within walking distance of our hotel. The tour exceeded our expectations again and again. Take this tour! You will be glad you did! We hope to come back for a mult day tour, and we will ask for Oliver.
