Absolutely a fabulous tour. We had a group of 6 and and a great guide. So, knowledgeable and passionate about the information, you could envision what really happened in Normandy during those times. A very long day but a lifelong memory.
Roomy van picked 8 of us up within walking distance of our Paris hotel...was early and nothing was open for breakfast, but we stopped at a gas station about half way in for a quick bite. Our guide, Claire, was quite personable, eager to share her knowledge. Her narrative along the way, the history, the stories behind D-Day - being there was humbling, to say the least. Claire was able to seek help at the American Cemetery and identify a relative who had perished there and the cemetery staff arranged for us to have a small ceremony in his honor. The cider tasting, right near the beaches, was a good diversion after such an overwhelming visit! An excellent day spend honoring those who so selflessly served defending our great county!
Our guide Adrien was excellent!!! He was so knowledgeable and a joy to be around! A trip we will always remember! Thank you Adrien! Highly recommend this trip and Adrien!
Our family of four (2 parents late-40s, and two teen-age daughters) went on this journey to Normandy and its WWII sites and had a wonderful experience! Oliver, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and charming; and provided wonderful service. It's a long day, but fascinating, and at times, moving. It was definitely a highlight of our trip.
Amazing, amazing, amazing. I have always been a proud American. After this trip, I am even more so. The bravery, sacrifice and selflessness of these soldiers and the courage of the leadership is more than incredible. I got emotional on this tour several times. Our tour guide Ollie (Oliver) was unbelievable in terms of his grasp of the area, D-Day and history in general. He was so passionate and appreciative of the US sacrifice on that day. Full disclosure, it is a long day but sooo worth every minute. Ask for Ollie. This tour (and managing tour company) is more than first rate.
Our tour was with Blue Fox and our host was Amaury (Mo-Mo). We saw multiple historic sites, visited the Overlord Museum, and had time at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. Amaury was a perfect host. He shared much information about the sites while still giving us time to respectfully visit at our own pace. We stopped for a great lunch at a local restaurant and later enjoyed a cider tasting. Our whole family got a lot out of our day 75 years after the D-Day Invasion that turned the tide on the war in Europe. Don't miss out on this!
The tour guide was very informative, provided good perspective on history, excellent presentations and great driver. I would recommend this tour and guide. Well worth the time to experience Normandy area and see the terrain the solders had to cross during the invasion of D- Day.
Excellent great day well timed out not rushed got back at a reasonable time. Guide was fantastic very knowledgeable and patient with my questions.
This was a fantastic experience made all the better by an outstanding guide - even though France was enduring record setting hot temperatures at the time (42C!). Oliver (a PhD in French History) was our guide. Beyond being beyond well educated on the subject, he was highly engaging , friendly, and hard working. For those considering this tour - it is a terrific value but be aware that it is a long day - you leave Paris from your meeting point at 6am not to return until 8:30 or 9pm.
From start to finish our guide was great. I get motion sickness easily and was worried about this long of a drive giving me issues but he was a great driver and I had no problem! He was very knowledgable about every aspect of the trip not just the main sites. I appreciated that he remembered everyone's names right away and made us all comfortable being on a very full day trip with strangers. We learned so much more then if we drove out on our own, would highly recommend this!
Captivating tour for anyone marginally interested in this major world history event. Olivia, our tour guide is a master at her craft and answered any questions we could think of.
This tour was one of the best I’ve been on. JB, our guide, was informative and friendly. He engaged the whole group with stories and information. It was a long day but many stops along the way. At most stops we were given a little free time to walk and reflect on our own. A definite recommendation even if you aren’t a history buff.
Great way to see some history from Paris. Long day but would do it again. Small group ideal way to go.
I booked the small group trip for me and my son because I didn't look forward to being herded around in a giant group on a big bus. Best decision I ever made. Our guide, Olivier, was friendly, very patient, and incredibly knowledgable both about WWI and WWII. He brought an emotional aspect to the history that really made you put yourself in the place of the soldiers who fought and died on D-Day. It was an amazing trip and I would recommend it to anyone considering taking the time to visit Normandie.
Great tour. You will be on this tour all day, but there is a lot to see and do. The lunch spot was very good and timed well. Our guide was very helpful and answered questions. Our family did not feel rushed by her and had adequate time to see all that the tour required. We had 8 people in our group which was perfect. This tour is for fit people! There is a lot of walking and it would have been annoying if someone was holding the group up. You leave Paris around 7:00am and we did not get back till around 8:30pm. Well worth it-highlight of our trip!
Momo, our guide was super. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. Pick up right on time, easy ride both directions. Excellent lunch stop.
A small group of eight and a wonderful guide (Claire), who artfully avoided the BIG bus tours during the entire day. For the most part, we were able to visit most of the sites with no or limited crowds during this 75th-anniversary year of the Battle of Normandy. She also made sure that we were able to attend the solemn 5 pm ceremony of the bringing down at the front of ropes. As an US military veteran, the opportunity to stand at attention with no one in front of me during the playing of taps and to honor the sacrifice of the fallen was incredibly moving. In addition to the military aspects of the tour, our lunch was also in a smaller local restaurant that offered delicious crepes in a peaceful, uncrowded environment (again too small to cater to the BIG buses). We also we treated with a cider tasting at a villa dating back to the 1500s that only our group attended. Quite special! All in all, well worth the 6:15 AM to 9:30 PM day from Paris!!!
This is a wonderful tour. The small group makes the experience perfect. Antoine is an outstanding and knowledgeable guide.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was informative and made events that happened over 70 years ago come to life. The visit to the American Cemetery was sobering and made us appreciate more than we already did the sacrifice our soldiers. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
It was a wonderful tour to be on. Our group's knowledgeable guide provided insightful information on the way to Normandy and at each stop we made. He chose a wonderful restaurant for lunch and a fantastic stop at a local farm for cider and refreshments before we returned to Paris. It is a long day on this tour (about 13 1/2 hours for our day) but well worth the trip. If you are a History buff, you will be in awe taking this tour.
Normandy is moving and beautiful and recommended for every American. Our guide, Jean-Phillips, was very informed. Very nice tour.
