Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Worth every cent. We had an amazing day and Allan was an extraordinary guide. Working with Tina to arrange logistics was enjoyable and seamless. My wife and I retraced the steps of her Grandfather who landed at Omaha Beach, and Allan's pace and level of expertise was perfect for us. Highly recommended and grateful for such a thoroughly wonderful experience - hb Houston, Texas

First Normandy Battlefield Tours is a top-notch D-Day tour company. Allan and Tina make a great team! Communication was clear, timely and professional as we made arrangements for our American Two-Day tour with Allan. Tina answered every question quickly and completely. The tour itself was absolutely amazing. Allan is a gifted storyteller. He will transport you back to the days before the invasion, set the scene, take you through the landings as well as battles off the beaches and share achingly poignant stories of the young men who fought that day. His vast knowledge of D-Day history, his many first-person interviews with vets and his passion about this subject makes this tour the best of the best. You will be treated to unique experiences and information you can't get from any other tour, in addition to seeing all the major sites. Each day's tightly packed itinerary is managed well. This was the single best thing we did during our month in France...a tour that will remain in our memories for a very long time.

My family had a wonderful experience touring with Allan. He had so many stories to add to our existing knowledge base. We all wished we had booked two days with him!
Allan was very patient with our questions. He provided a wonderful overview plus a deep dive into many areas. A true pleasure learning from Allan and highly recommend to all.

Indescribably impactful day for our family (me, my wife and two sons - 15 and 13). Allan is remarkable - witty and relatable, with an encyclopedic knowledge base. He is a thoughtful narrator with minute and nuanced recollection of details. Allan was patient in response to myriad questions, as he guided us through the events of the day with detail on the strategy and training leading up to the D-Day landing, and a retelling of the events that transpired in those 24 hours. From Air, Sea and Land, Allan had it covered, including the collective perspective of the Allied forces and the efforts by Germans to prepare for and thwart the liberation. We finished with a solemn visit to the American Cemetery; powerful and emotional beyond words. If I could give 6 Stars, I would do so readily. If you are considering a tour of D-Day sites and history in Normandy, I cannot recommend Allan any more highly. Truly amazing.

My wife and I did the one-day American Tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Alan picked us up at train station in Carentan and we were immediately into the tour. He was personable, well-versed on the Normandy campaign and was able to personalize the battle with stories from his own research and interviews with veterans. We would certainly use Alan again.

Such a memorable day! Allan Bryson is an amazing and extremely knowledgable tour guide who provided us an outstanding experience. Visiting the small village of Sainte Mere Eglise (where our first paratroopers landed and where the Airborne Museum is located), Utah and Omaha beaches, and the American Cemetery afforded us a true insight into and appreciation of what our heroic soldiers accomplished. It was one of our best days ever - thank you, Allan!

Seeing Utah and Omaha beaches helped with the visualization of how D-Day may have played out. And, Alan did a great job letting us know which movies were most acurate. Alan also shared his knowledge on the operations before and following the landing of troops.

Although I did not actually attend the tour, I was instrumental in its organisation. It was to be a surprise gift for my husband, who was celebrating a significant birthday. I must thank Tina and Allan for their support in this, as their clear instructions and friendly guidance allowed me to organise the trip without too many worries. My husband was absolutely surprised and delighted, and he and his best friend, thoroughly enjoyed the 2-day tour; it was a resounding success. An incredibly professional service from initial enquiry to the tour end. Highly recommended.

The title of this review truly summarizes our experience. Allan's knowledge about D-Day is outmatched only by his enthusiasm for the topic. Having interviewed hundreds of veterans and consulted on countless documentaries, books, and the like, to say that Allan is an expert barely does him justice. I arranged for a full day private tour with Allan for my husband, parents, and me. We visited several locations including Airborne Museum in St. Sainte-Mère-Église, Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American Cemetery. Allan brought each location alive with factual background, secondhand anecdotes from the men who had actually served there, pictures, maps, and details you'd never be privy to in your run of the mill tour. There was no question asked that Allan couldn't answer. He was professional, timely, polite, and his vehicle was immaculately clean. 10/10 would recommend. When we go back to Normandy, we will not think twice about arranging for another tour with Allan.

Toured the American and British beaches with Alan over two days in May. Experience with Alan was outstanding. My wife and I were very interested in learning more more about the D Day landings. For those interested in more than an overview of the beaches, the geography and picking the right places to get a more in depth view can be challenging. Alan was able to structure our two days to maximize the value of the two days we had set aside to invest in learning more about the history of the Normandy landings. Alan has deep knowledge and understanding of the history. Adding to that he is relaxed, personable and very well prepared. IF you are interested in getting an in depth tour of the Battlefields, we cannot recommend Alan more highly
