Private Tour of D-Day Sights with 2 Kids

I want to schedule a private day tour of the main D-Day sights for June.

We are a group of 4 adults and 2 kids (12 and 6). We contacted Overlord Tour (Bayeux) but all of their private tours are booked during my traveling dates. I am so disappointed!

Can you give me any recommendations of another very good tour company that does private tours? We'll be based in Bayeux and really want to do a private tour to make the experience more educational and fun for our kids as well as for the adults.

Thanks for any advise you can give me!

Guides worked at Disney in USA for a while, so they know how to deal with kids and their adults.

Bayeux Shuttle does a great job and utilizes video and other multimedia in the van. That might be nice for the kids to have some visuals.

June is usually very busy. And you are travelling with kids, and to be honest, I know some private guide will refuse tours with kids because they don't like to guide with them....

Other companies you can try: Normandy Sightseeing Tours and Normandy Panorama. And I know that both are doing great jobs with kids.

You can also try www.victorytours.com (although they may not take kids under 10).
