Our guide made it very easy for us as a family. My younger kids have limited attention spans and she did a great job of keeping a good pace while not trivializing a really important and complex topic

This tour was a great afternoon! Being in a small group made it even more special and moving. Our guide Amandine was wonderful. She has great passion for the history and provided useful information but also some space to experience these places on our own. Definitely recommend!

This was by far the best day of our trip and Brad the tour guide was phenomenal!! I waited to get home from Europe to write this review so that I would have time to write a proper review!! By far best day of our trip and simply amazing. Brad by far was the best tour guide of our entire vacation. So incredibly knowledgeable, kind and helpful!! Went above and beyond to make this tour phenomenal!! This tour is a must. We took the train in from Paris and met Brad in a beautiful quaint town in Bayeux France which was picturesque!! He spent time with each and every one of us as we walked around during the tour and shared his personal experiences about the memorial. Brad we hope you see this review and know you made this vacation experience one we will never forget.

The tour was absolutely wonderful in every way. It more than met our expectations, primarily due to our outstanding guide, Brad Scott. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone more knowledgeable on the Normandy battles and related facts. His presentation style was excellent, with a deep respect for the subject matter, but also the ability to sprinkle in humor as appropriate. We highly recommend this tour, especially if you can book Brad as your guide!

This tour is a perfect day trip out of Paris and offers great value for both the history buff and the casual observer.

My wife and I really enjoyed the half day tour with tour guide Matt. As a WWII history buff, seeing this hallowed ground was a must on our weeklong trip to France. This was my second time to the Norman beaches but this time was even more informative as Matt told us many facts about the sites I hadn’t previously known. We were even able to see a few sites I hadn’t seen on my previous trip. My wife, although not quite as into the history as I am, enjoyed seeing the Norman countryside and natural beauty of the coast. I highly recommend this tour for both the history nuts and for those just wanting to see a beautiful part of France.

This trip was a Christmas present for my 9 year old son who has been self studying WW2, Marie was an excellent tour guide, we departed on time from Bayeux in a lovely air-conditioned people carrier, she was knowledgeable about the area and pointed out interesting landmarks and historical buildings on each part of the car journey, she listened and answered all my son's questions and the rest of the tour were very patient with him too. It was an amazing day all round and we couldn't recommend the tour highly enough.
