What an incredible experience! Wow. We are so glad we ended up with this one! It was a very full day and truly nothing was left out. Our first stop was a Battery where we got to go inside the bunkers and learn about battle area there. There are still in tact cannons from DDay inside some of the bunkers which was crazy to witness. We then went to Omaha Beach, and and got to spend some time walking the area after our guide shared the history there. Afterwards we went to Point Du Hoc where the US Rangers climbed the ocean cliffs in order to take control of that stronghold. It was surreal to see the ground covered in huge divots where ally bombs were dropped. We stopped for lunch at a local Creperie, then spent time at the DDay Memorial and Cemetery. We ended with cider tasting at a local cider farm which was incredible and such a unique experience! Olivia, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and personable and her English was perfect. It was an experience we will never forget!
Excellent full day tour with Nicolas! We had 8 of us in the van - very comfortable set-up and spacious vehicle. The drive took about 3 hours each way and Nicolas was great in providing relevant information as we got closer to the sites (and letting us all sleep in the car for the early morning / late afternoon). The tour was very well planned starting with point du hoc, omaha beach, american cemetery. The provided lunch at the farm house was so delicious in a wonderful environment. The visit to Arromanches after lunch was also very interesting. I was glad the tour ended at about 6:30pm in Paris since the day was pretty long. I think the semi-private vans are able to travel faster than the large buses (though these tours are cheaper) so this was a huge plus, also the vans are able to travel to areas where the buses cannot easily go. I really appreciated Nicolas driving, knowledge, and attention to detail. He is an EXCELLENT guide! Thank you!
Excellent. Out guide did a super job. The landing sites really show what the allied forces went through in the invasion. Seeing the cliffs and beaches they crossed was moving. The cemetery was beautiful and a peaceful resting place for those who made the ultimate sacrifice
Highly recommend this tour! We had a small group of 7 and visited many important sites for Canadians during the war. Our guide Olivia was knowledgeable and allowed just the right amount of time for us to spend exploring the museums.
We had the most amazing time on our tour. We were lucky to have the tour to ourselves + 1 other couple. It was set out beautiful and the scenes were breathtaking and more then we could ever have imagined.
