    Great way to get a full D-Day experience. There is so much to see and do in this area-this tour covered all the basics that we were interested in seeing. The tour guide, Phillip was thorough and provided supplemental information to each of the sites we visited. He was also very patient as our tour group had seniors and younger children.

    Sophie was an absolutely wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable and really personalized our trip. I would definitely request her again should I ever return.

    David was a wonderful tour guide! I loved how this tour was laid out-in the order of the landings, and the historical nuggets that David shared along the way. A humbling experience that I highly recommend. It was timed perfectly, finishing at the American Cemetery.

    Our tour escort, Sophia was very knowledgeable and personable. She knew the backroads of area, giving us wonderful views on a rain driven day. There is so much to see and the tour covers a large area the D-Day invasion, there is a bit of information overload. Because of the weather, Sophia went beyond her normal tour and dropped each of us off at our hotels. We really enjoyed the day.

    The tour was excellent and well beyond our expectations. Alex the tour guide was enthusiastic and very knowlsdgable was willing and able to answer any questions. We saw key sights prior to getting to the beaches such an a Key bridge where fighting went on for days and a church where a paratrooper got hung up on the steeple. At the Allied landing sight beaches we investigated German pill box ruins and key allied forces landing sights. At the end of the day we participated in the flag lowering ceremony and toured the 9000 American soldiers' graves. The day's tour was a not to miss experience.

    Arnauld our guide was an absolutely excellent provider of information and was able to explain D Day in a way that helped us appreciate the sacrifices made.

    Very informative of what the Americans accomplished on d-day. Would recommend, even if not into history

  • 11-Oct-2019

    The time on our tour was time well spent. Our tour guide, Eric, was informative and entertaining. At every stop, he provided a background story that gave a personal side to the factual information. While the tour is about 8-9 hours long, the time flew by and we enjoyed the entire day. I highly recommend this tour.

    The guide was extremely nice but the information provided was profanatory at best. The guide provided basic troop movement information and had some maps but the presentation was cursory and rote. There was nothing to convey the extreme challenges and human cost involved.
