My family (including two teenagers) took a personalized day-long tour of the D-Day highlights through the Overlord tour company. We lucked out with an amazing tour guide — indeed, the best tour guide we’ve ever had anywhere— a local fellow named Guillaume.
Guillaume picked us up in Bayeux and took us to several locations, all while providing a running commentary of fascinating details related to D-Day. We were astonished at how much, as Americans, we simply DID NOT KNOW about June 6, 1944, especially given that D-Day was perhaps the most important date of the 20th century.
I am especially grateful that Guillaume was willing to share his own family’s personal stories about the occupation which added significant color to narrative. I am also pleasantly surprised that he was able to keep the attention of our teenagers!
We recommend Overlord Tour, and especially Guillaume, when you are in Normandy.
