Impactful and highly recommended for patriots wanting to pay their respects
, Sep 2021
Our tour guide was great (I apologize I didn't write down her name) and bus at the pickup location was nicer than I was expecting. I was thinking it would be a passenger van, but the seats were cushy and roomy. There was a restroom onboard as well, but no one used it. The driver stopped at a gas station on the way up so we were able to use the restrooms and get snacks before the tour started in earnest. They also took us to a location for lunch and souvenir shopping before the final stop. On the way back they again stopped at a gas station for restroom breaks and snacks. All in all it was a long day (0700-2000), but I highly recommend it!
An Emotionally Uninvolving Tour
, Sep 2021
Guide & driver were fine. Tour is emotionally uninvolving because the tourist doesn't ever see much of anything tangible. Maybe stop at a German bunker?
Wonderful Day
, Aug 2021
Wonderful tour led by a very experienced guide. Expect to spend all day on this trip. Does require a bit of walking and standing outside (some people were not aware of this). 10/10, would recommend!
Very moving and emotional day
, Jul 2021
Guides were very knowledgeable and friendly and while the tour wasn’t cheap, I thought it was worth the money. I would give this 5 stars but the bus was filthy. Tray tables were smeared with food, food on the wall.

Normandy excursion
, Mar 2020
We signed up and paid for an 8 person tour. We were on a bus with 29 people, the bathroom was out of order and our prearranged ride back to hotel never showed up so we had to pay for a taxi. Our tour guide and destinations were great.

Highlight of my trip to France
, Mar 2020
If you enjoy learning about World War II, then this is the tour for you. This tour was easily the highlight of my trip to France. Our tour guide was funny, and extremely knowledgeable. She had something interesting to say at all times. Lunch was great, and the bus was super comfortable. I would 100% recommend taking this tour.
Great tour!
, Mar 2020
This was an awesome tour! Very well organized and was able to see all of the sites I wanted. Definitely worth the money! We opted for the lunch option; if I did this tour again, I would consider bringing my own lunch or purchasing a quick one in the museum cafe to have more time to tour the museum. However, this is probably a personal preference-the lunch was great, and they accommodated my vegetarian diet. Awesome experience overall!

Leila (?) was an excellent tour guide and also was very conscientious about our transportation following the tour. Very personable. Highly recommend her. The communication from your company regarding the pre tour pickup from our hotel (cab from Le Meridien) was non existent. We had to initiate everything to guarantee that we would be there on time. A simple email with the details would have sufficed.

Very comprehensive tour-loved the museum
, Feb 2020
The guide was wonderful, very informative, knew a lot about the sites and had immense amounts of energy. My favorite part was the museum, the first stop, because it was comprehensive about WW2-you could either just visit the DDay part, the whole thing, or pick what you wanted to see. The museum is well laid out and the movie on the days after DDay was a highlight because we always have the perception after DDay Normandy was liberated. The movie explained in detail why that's a fallacy. The 4, rather than 5, stars is because the tour is just way too long-6 hours there and back and so many stops. We were all exhausted and starving, and the bus stopped at a bus stop with hideous packaged sandwiches and no place to eat them. I'm guessing the stop is because the driver must have a break, not a break really for the passengers and we were all pretty surly at 9 pm after a 14 hour trip. I get you want to give value for the price but there were too many stops. I would have been better to skip a stop and offer a light dinner at the passengers cost.

Great tour, be prepared LONG day!
, Feb 2020
So very very long day and exhausting but very moving day. Amazing to see all the beaches and the bunkers. Lunch was no great at all. They piled us in a couple of table with hardly any room to move. Bus very comfortable and had a bathroom in it!! Tour guide was good and very knowledgeable!!
