Our guide, Adrian, was fantastic. He not only provided a wealth of information regarding the D-Day sites but also shared his knowledge of Paris and France in general. He helped us find an adorable little town to visit during our planned drive down to Bordeaux. This tour was well organized!

We had an absolutely perfect day (arguably day and a half, the trip was 12 hours in total) with Adrien. He picked us up on time and where indicated. He told us where we were going; what we would see; and THAT he would explain it again as we went along in case anyone wanted to sleep. He then explained all kinds of things along the road itself. His English was perfect. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. We stopped for coffee; for lunch. All went very smoothly. We went to a very important lookout between Gold and Omaha beaches; then visited each beach. We also went to Pointe du Hoc - so moving - each and every stop. We visited the American cemetery and an excellent museum called the Overlord. You could ask Adrien as much as you liked, or as little as you liked. Some others in our group kept to themselves, that was fine, too. I cannot overstate what a wonderful trip this was. Visiting the beaches had been my dream, and it was perfectly fulfilled. Worth every penny!

This is an amazing experience if you are at all interested in the D day sites! Our guide Oliver was amazing, he was so knowledgeable and funny he made the tour experience great. We got to see all of the important land marks, each one taking your breath away. We then ate at a delicious local restaurant (get the bucket of muscles!!!). We ended the day at a beautiful local cidery! We had a great time and learned a lot! This tour is worth the cost!!
