Very impactful! Our full-day tour provided a chance to see a lot and our guide was extremely insightful. I could not imagine trying to visit without a guide. We learned a lot. There is much more to the sites than meets the eye.

The tour was really great and the guide was extremely informative about all the sights we saw. He was prompt in picking us up and was so knowledgeable not only about all the sights, but also about the history of the war as a whole. The binder full of pictures also helped us get a sense of what happened on D-Day. Overall, we really enjoyed our tour and highly recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in D-Day and learning more about the history of Normandy.

Amazing Experience - Wasn’t on my Bucket List but Would be now!

I did the 1-day American tour and could not have been more pleased with the experience. I went in January 2020 when I was spending the weekend in France for a business trip. It was off peak and there were only 4 others on the trip. Our guide picked us up at 8:30am from the Bayeux train station and dropped us back off at 6:00pm. In between we started at St. Mere Eglise, followed by Utah beach, German Cemetery, Point Du Hoc, American Cemetery, and finally Omaha Beach. The weather was unexpectedly warm and sunny and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. On the way to St. Mere Eglise (about 45 minutes) he spoke about how the war had started, timelines and reasons why all the different countries entered the war. Upon arrival at each site he would spend 15-20 minutes explaining the significant events, people, strategies, outcomes etc. at each location then allowed us 15-30 minutes (which was more than enough time) to wonder around, take pictures etc. This trip was not on my bucket list before I scheduled it but had I known before what I learned from this experience it would definitely have been! I highly recommend this for anyone with even the slightest interest in the history of WWII and significance of these hallowed grounds. I would not recommend driving and experiencing these sites without a guide as 99% of the experience would be lost. I typically use Viator for my guided tours when traveling and this was by far their best I’ve been part of.

Adrian was an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable about D Day and had interesting anecdotes. He shared on both a global and regional level, giving a unique French perspective. He was a great guide I would definitely recommend.

Normandy Battlefields tour - American sites

Phillip was our tour guide who had an extensive knowledge of the battlefield sites included on this tour. he gave us free time to explore the area after giving a solid explanation of the areas we visited. All the sites were most humbling to see and we as tourists can only imagine the horror experienced on those days. Phillip kept the history of the events realistic including why the results turned out the way they did versus what we have seen in the Hollywood movies. This was important to note since many of us have different versions in our mind. A noteworthy tour and a must see for everyone.
