Dday of a lifetime
Donald_D

We offered our 13 yo grandson a trip to Europe to study wwii history for his birthday. Our tour guide Julie provided a great tour for him with understandable answers to his questions and ours. She made it to all the sites we wanted to see on a very busy dday holiday with large crowds and lots of traffic. Julie picked an excellent place for lunch and gave us many options for when and where to eat during our travels. Her knowledge of the history and the area was superb. Would highly recommend this trip and tour guide to others. She was French and we were Americans but her English was great.

Wonderful day. Since Normandy is so spread out with so many various locations and sights - a guided tour is really the way to go. Our guide Celine was so knowledgeable and kind. We visited all the things we wanted to and loved the town of Bayeux.

Celine did an excellent job helping us to understand the events of D-Day and beyond. She has an excellent notebook with pictures and maps and documents that made it even more understandable. She is excellent. Highly recommend!

Bucket list trip!

What an amazing experience! This trip to Normandy was a “bucket list” trip for me and my brother. Adrien was the best guide. He was so knowledgeable, and really made the trip come to life. I cannot stop talking about it. If you go to Normandy, get a guide! He not only was familiar with all that we saw, but also tips for the area, and what we could do later on our trip. My knowledge and appreciation for the men and women who sacrificed so much will not be forgotten.

Had an amazing day learning about D-Day and seeing the battlefields and cemeteries in person. Our group had a wide range of knowledge and everyone ended the day with learning something new. We are still talking about the unique stories we heard. I have already recommended this tour to friends and family.

The Best Day

Had very knowledgeable young French woman take us from hotel to Utah and Omaha beaches, then to flag lowering ceremony at Omaha cemetery. I was looking for where my Father had landed in August 1944 so she then she then took us to the British temporary harbor at Arromanches-les-Bains while asking other guides questions to help figure out the puzzle. Did work at home that night and emailed me with what she had found. Went above and beyond. Great Day.

This was a bucket list trip for me. The six of us (me, wife, 4 kids aged 24-12) took an early train from Paris and were picked up at the train station by Adrian. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. We went to the German cemetery, toured Pointe du Hoc, had lunch at a great spot, went to Omaha Beach, the American cemetery and then went to view Omaha beach from a spot that you would not be able to find on your own. The whole day was great - Thank you Adrian!

Full day tour of Normandy D-Day beaches

Olivier showed us a great overview of the beaches, historical sites and cemeteries. His historical commentary added a lot of depth to what we saw. We traveled from the German cemetery to St Mere Eglise to Utah beach to Pont du Hoc to Angoville-au-Plain, to Omaha Beach to the American Cemetery, and even to the town he grew up in which was in the film "The Longest Day". A memorable day for my dad, our wives, and my teenage boys. We all need a reminder of the cost of freedom.

Our guide Gwen was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and thoughtful during the long day we spent with him. He answered all our questions in depth and helped us understand in detail how events and places fit together in our history and tour of the American sites on D-Day. We would recommend him highly.

Anne-Sophie was our guide for the day. She was both knowledgeable and passionate about the topic. A resident of the area she had a deep knowledge and a family connection. She took time to explain each monument, let us explore, and fall in love with the area.

Normandy with Matthew
Elizabeth V
, Jun. 2018
The Viator tour guide, Matthew, did a great job. He was extremely knowledgeable and very well prepared for all of our questions. He arrived shortly before 9 a.m. at our hotel with a van large enough for seven of us with all of our luggage. We spent almost eight hours with him and he dropped us at the train station with plenty of time to catch our train. Everyone agreed he was a very good tour guide. He was even able to find a grave at Normandy for one of our group who had a friend ask about the possibility. I would rate Matthew a TEN as the experience was wonderful.
