Our tour guide gave a lot of great information that really made the battlefields come to life when we were there. He was very knowledgeable and even took us to a great lunch spot!

Use a different company

Our tour guide was barely fluent in English and it was her first day on her own as a tour guide after taking several days off. We felt like we didn't get nearly the amount of history or stories that other tours got (when we compared with other tourists at our hotel). At each stop she would give us a brief summation then leave us on our own for at least an hour at each. Some time on our own to explore is wonderful, but this felt like we were basically being driven then dumped. I would not recommend this tour company.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Elisabeth, We are so sorry about the bad experience you had with this guide. She started working for us few weeks ago and the tour you had with her doesn't reach the level we are used to provide to our guests. We never had such a bad review about one of our guide over the last 18 years. This is why we would like to fully refund you and make it up to you by offering a private tour if you are able to come back to France (even next year). Also be aware that this employee will not run anymore tours with our company. Again we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you and we will make sure it will never happen again. Kind regards Morgane - Assitant Director

Just stepping out of the van onto the ground where the invasion and liberation began was enough.

Our guide did an excellent job and was well informed. Everything was great including the airborne museum. However, not sure it makes sense to be dropped off at a museum on your own as part of a guided tour.

Bucket list trip to Normandie
Michael_M
, Jun 2022
We were able to experience the most iconic sites in Normandy of the American experience. Each of the sites was well preserved and there was plenty of context provided. However, our guide took time before exploring each site to give us even more in depth information and in many cases was nearby as we explored the sites to answer questions. Even though I felt I knew a lot about each site prior to the tour, I learned a lot. We would highly recommend Jon as a guide. He is originally from London, and therefore his English is fluent.

Lots of beaches in one day
Mary_T
, May 2022
Our guide was fun and quirky. She took us all around the beaches and explained what occurred at each. The only issue I would have is less beach and more time in one or two of the museums. I think a half day of beaches and a half day of museums would have been a better fit for us. Although she did assure we made it to the American cemetery for the flag ceremony in the evening, which was more moving than I had expected, bringing tears to my eyes.

Fantastic Tour and Guide

Our tour guide, Rose, was phenomenal. We gained the impression that she is very passionate about the subject material. That combined with the small size of our tour group meant that we received a very high quality experience. This is the most expensive tour that I've taken but it was honestly well worth it.

If you’re visiting Normandy exclusively for DDay, I highly suggest you book this tour. Distance from beach to beach or from airborne landing area are not as close as I thought they would be. Having a guide and someone to drive you around makes it 10x better.

The guide was amazing by providing us with many data. Our main problem was that the boy couldn't speak good spanish.

Dear Patricia, I am afraid that not all of our guides speak spanish but some of them do. Did you mention your mother tongue was spanish when booking. All the best Regards Frederic Guerin

We had a wonderful time with Matt throughout the day (9-hour tour). He picked us up at our hotel, and along with a small group (a family of four and a father son duo) we were able to have a very fulfilling and education tour of the d day beaches. Matt was able to conduct the tour in two languages (English and French) the entire time, which was very impressive. His depth of knowledge was incredible and he was very personable throughout the day. He also allowed for some extra stops between the beaches for little monuments if we wanted (I particularly was excited for the monument for easy company from band of brothers). Overall, it was a great experience and definitely recommend to all.

Anthony_R

Overall excellent experience. Really can't think of anything to improve on it. Was a very good overview of multiple areas of interest and I think it was particularly good to see the German war Cemetery. I feel like we had just the right amount of time on our own to look at the museums and grab a bite to eat and explore other areas as well. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and presented the information well as well as used photographs to show us that we were standing on the same spot as the photographs were taken 70+ years ago. Even though the tour lasted around 8 hours it literally flew by.

This Normandy Tour was wonderful! Our guide, Adrian, was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and engaging. We took the time to explain everything and held the attention of our 8 and 9 yr old kids throughout the entire day. Super easy pick up and drop off at the Bayeux train station too.

MOST EXCELLENT D-day tour

Matt was a wonderful guide who was friendly and very knowledgeable about D-day. It was a little somber thinking about all the men lost on that day, but Matt was great sharing stories and humor.

Matt was our tour guide, and he was excellent! He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and provided lots of interesting details. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who has never visited the area or wants to learn more about the events of D-Day.
