Our family toured the Normandy Battlefield Sites this week and we could not have been more pleased with our experience! Romain was the prefect tour guide. He setup each stop perfectly with just the right amount of information and anecdotes. Don’t miss this tour when in Normandy!

We had Adrien and he was excellent! Incredibly smart and could answer all sorts of questions. We learned so much about the history of DDay. My husband and I are both military and this tour was especially meaningful to us. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Provided transportation was roomy, comfortable, and timely. The sites visited, due to the nature of the visits as memorials to historical World War II battle grounds, were awe-inspiring, reflective, and sad. The knowledge and enthusiastic passion of our guide, Adrian, was incredible and enlightening. Adrian adapted us well to the windy, cool, and rainy weather for that day. In fact, the weather fit the overall experience of this setting of reflection on our world at war. We were very pleased with the tour.

But I agree "the weather fit the overall experience of this setting of reflection on our world at war". I might get some business from November to April Take care Frederic Guerin

Had a fabulous experience with Antoine as a tour guide. His ability to communicate in English is excellent. He is very knowledgeable of the history and provided great historical insights as we arrived at each location. It was a wonderful day trip to learn more about WW II.

Absolutely fantastic. If you do nothing else in Normandy, take this tour. Start to finish, a life changer. Our tour guide was Charles; professional, personable, and very focused on making our experience great. He obviously tailored his discussions to our interests while ensuring we had a sense of the major events surrounding the Overlord invasion.

Wonderful experience and well worth the full day. Our guide was excellent and full of knowledge—we couldn’t stop talking about how great the tour was well after the ending!

Pickup is a breeze if you’re staying in Bayeux. Our guide arrived within the provided timeframe and then we were off. It’s a whirlwind of a tour that covers a lot of Normandy. Along the way, our guide shared WWII history, French knowledge of the region, and even important, contextual info that helped fill in the backstory for D-Day. We visited a U.S. paratrooper museum, an important church in a little French village, Utah Beach, a German cemetery, and stopped at an excellent local restaurant about midday.

The tour concluded with visits to Pont du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American cemetery. All in all, it was a wonderful way to spend a day in the northwest of France.

This tour was fantastic. Adrian was our tour guide and we had him all to ourselves. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. We visited the German cemetery, Utah Beach, the Airborne museum in Sainte-Mère-Église, the American cemetery, and Omaha Beach, all shuttled via air conditioned van. We could've driven ourselves around all the sites but we would've missed out on all of Adrian's stories and background. Take the tour!

Sometimes there is not much to be seen anymore, you have to imagine how it was. However, the knowledge, thoroughness and humor of our guide, Olivier C, made up for this. He was a superb guide, rich of stories and memories.

First, kudos to our guide Antoine. He was extremely knowledgeable and was easy to engage with discussion. This was my second time in Normandy. The first time we winged it and just drove the sites. This was a far better experience getting the details of what we were looking at. The German Cemetery was an unexpected perspective as well. The amount of Normandy tours can be overwhelming, but you can’t go wrong with this one.
