Solely based on good TA reviews, we took the half day tour: our guide was Kate. The trip to Pointe du Hoc, which could have been used to give historical background,was made in complete silence. Kate kept mentioning that we were in the oldest van and she couldn't talk because it was too noisy. Our group totalled eight: six of whom spoke English and two for whom French was their only language Thus, everything (such as it was) had to be repeated.
I (along with the other two couples in the group) was glad my husband was along because he is a WWII buff and filled us all in with the knowledge Kate didn't. Both couples mentioned this several times during the course of our half day. Although Kate was very nice, she lacked any enthusiasm and did not share any stories--just facts from a book.
Unless you can specifically ask for a newer van and a different tour guide, I would not recommend this tour.
