D Day
This tour provides a good overview of the landing beaches and a couple of other sites related to D Day. Our guide, Thierry, was knowledgeable, articulate, and gracious.

He had some helpful maps and interesting pictures, which were presented at various stops along the tour.

We had toured the area on our own several years ago—I would definitely recommend visiting the sites with the benefit of a guide.

Unfortunately, the visitor center at The American Cemetery was closed due to covid, so we were only able to tour the cemetery.

The tour makes for a long day, but is very worthwhile.

And thanks to Thierry, who kindly returned my scarf to our hotel after I left it in his van!

I recently took a full day tour with Charles. It was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and his English was so good you might forget he's a native of the area.

Excellent Full Day Omaha and Utah beach tour
Sep 2021
Went to Normandy wanting to see the D-Day beaches. Decided to do a tour rather than see them on our own. Looked at reviews of various tour companies and decided on Overlord since that got a lot of positive comments. Our only hesitation was that their tours were for up to 16 people which was more than others. Since we went during Covid and France had just recently opened to US tourists we figured that there wouldn't be that many people so booked Overlord. Did not regret it. Our tour had 6 people, almost as good as a private tour. Our guide, Jordan, was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and had good stories. My wife who didn't know much about D-Day learned a lot and found the tour very enjoyable. Would also recommend that you watch the movie the Longest Day before you go. Highly recommend Overlord.

Excellent guide gave us a great tour
Sep 2021
Thiery was our guide on a full day tour of Omaha & Utah beaches and surrounding area. He was full of such great knowledge! We learned so much, including his perspective as the grandson of a prisoner-of-war. It will always be sobering to see the beaches and cliffs and challenges faced by the young Allies landing in France that day, but to hear about the liberation from the French point-of-view helped me better understand the deep friendship between our two countries.
Thiery shared many, many details and showed maps and photos, etc., to enhance our understanding of the events of the day. When one of the passengers became ill, Thiery made sure the guest received the help he needed, and that our needs/concerns were handled, too. He was an excellent guide, and a professional the entire day.

Highly recommend The full-day tour (Utah and Omaha beaches) with tour guide Thierry.
Nice small group of 6. He gave a fantastic tour of major and minor D-day sights and had lots of information on all of them. He even showed us more than was planned.

D Day Tour
Aug 2021
My husband and I learned so much on this tour and would highly recommend it. Our guide, Thierry was extremely knowledgeable and a great storyteller. I had a relative who was in D Day, and Thierry was able to detail where his regiment landed and what the progression of his experience would have been. We saw many different places that were part of the D Day operation, including Utah and Omaha Beaches, Pointe Du Hoc, and paratrooper John Steele’s church steeple landing. We felt like we learned much by doing the tour than we would have exploring on our own.

Great tour, great guide, a glimpse of the history and the events of WWII
Jul 2021
We booked 2 spots on a full day tour to see Omaha and Utah beaches. We opted for the tour that picks you up from the train station so we took the train from Paris to Bayeux early in the morning and got to Bayeux around 9:30 am. Charles, our tour guide was waiting for us at the train station, ready to get started. He did a great job of combining the more facts and figures history with some more people-focused satires to really helps us understand the events that took place on these historic towns and beaches. It ended up being just my husband an dI because there still aren't a lot of tourists in France, so that was kind of an added bonus, we could ask the questions and get more info on exactly what we wanted to know. My husband had a family friend that landed on Utah, and Charles did his best to try to find information about him from us. The vehicle was super comfortable and clean, the structure of the tour was exactly what we wanted and Charles was an amazing guide with a real love of history that showed in the way he explained everything to us. He also had good lunch and dinner recommendations and things to see in Bayeux, which is definitely worth spending at least a day there. We had been trying to see if we could do a tour of Mt Saint Michel the next day and had been unsuccessful in finding one, during lunch, Charles called around people he knew to see if he could get us a tour. Though it didn't work, it was thoughtful of him to try! We had a really great time and would recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about WWII and history, and looking for a different experience in a beautiful place!

excellent tour
Jul 2021
This tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Jordan, was very friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot. The tour includes visits to all sorts of places (the beaches, the cemetery, churches, etc). Jordan did a nice job of giving us a lot of history at each site but also giving us time to then explore some areas on our own. I'm so glad we took this tour.

Thierry is the best!
We booked the group tour and only had 2 other couples with us. Thierry was an incredible guide. I emailed overlord ahead of time with information about my grandfather who fought on Omaha beach and Thierry did extra research to find out where my grandfather landed and explained in depth what his tasks would have been. I highly recommend spending 2 nights in Bayeux and booking the full day tour. Thank you Thierry! When we return we will do another tour with you!
