“Awesome tour!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

I went on the Omaha beach sector half day tour which consisted of a visit to point du hoc, Omaha beach dog sector (Featured within saving private ryan) and the american war cemetary at Omaha. Omaha beach is one of five invasion beaches within normandy. Two being American and 3 being used by Commonwealth forces.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and really set the scene for each location. He displayed amazing knowledge of the battles within normandy and the strategic and political context.

Point du hoc is amazing with full access to the real bunkers and gun emplacements for photos. The location where the Ranger battalion scaled the cliff is also accessable.

Omaha Beach is an amazing sight as it demonstrates the huge challenges the allies faced during the initial stages trying to gain a foothold within france. It was a privelage to visit these sights.

Because there is so much to see I would recommend a full day tour or more to make the most of the region.

“Incredible tour guide with deep knowledge”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We attended the half-day tour hosted by Jean-Francois. He was an incredible guide, sharing his extensive knowledge with us every moment. While we travelled between sights in the van, Jean-Francois gave us great details on the history of Normandy and continued with amazing stories at each of the sights. Highly recommend this moving day seeing the sights of Normandy.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We did two tours a full day of Mont St Michel and a half day of the American D-Day tour. Our tour guide Romain, was great. He was very knowledgeable and very attentive to my husband's needs as he was having difficulty walking. We enjoyed both tours and would recommend this to our friends and family.

“Half day tour was Excellent”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We had Meg as our tour guide. She picked us up at the train station on time at 8:30. She spoke excellent English, but gave a French perspective about her family during World War II. We visited Pointe Du Hoc; Omaha Beach and the American cemetery. A very informative, emotionally powerful tour. HIghly recommend. Wish we had gone for the full day.

“Would not attempt to visit without first doing a tour”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We had an amazing time! Anna Sophia was out guide and she was outstanding. There were a total of 8 in our tour which allowed for many questions. I am amazed with her knowledge and clearly she has a passion for this area. We did the A2 tour- 1pm-6pm: point du hoc, Omaha Beach, the cemetery...we took an easy 2 hour train ride from Paris to Bayeux, took the tour and made it back to Paris (after seeing the tapestry) by 9pm (caught the 9am train to Bayeux, had lunch then caught the tour). This tour was powerful and engaged both kids... Ages 10 and 13. This was history and a guided tour is so important. I could see doing a tour first then spending several days diving deeper and taking more time....
