Half day, D Day excursion
Kristy_P, Sep 2023
My father in law was a D Day survivor so this tour had special meaning to us. Also, Fred, our guide, who has a passion for history, made our tour a memorable experience.
Thank you for a detailed and respectful tour of Omaha Beach and the Normandy American Cemetery
Gayle_G, Sep 2023
Our tour guide, Arnold, brought a very real and humanistic perspective to the D-Day landings and the Allied forces invasion on Omaha Beach. He was exceptionally knowledgeable of the battle, and battle strategies of both the Allies and Germans. When visiting the American National Cemetery, again Arnold shared his in-depth knowledge, and was extraordinarily mindful and respectful of the challenges faced and lives lost on that day.

The tour was really well done and it was clear our guide Antoine had a passion for it. He was super knowledgeable and kind, and helped bring the events that happened there to life. Would definitely recommend him and the tour to anyone!

Massive bravery to secure Normandie
Charles_M, Jul 2023
Seeing first hand the lack of protection for the Allied soldiers after disembarking from the landing boats and crossing the extensive beach at low tide under enemy fire.
Powerful, informative and beautiful tour.
ShellyL_C, Jun 2023
This was the most wonderful tour. Our guide was friendly, knowledgable, and respectful about all he shared with us. He had pictures, diagrams, stories, answered all our questions, and also gave us time in each place to have our own moments there. He even stayed a bit later at the end because we were all so moved and kept coming up with more to ask him. The cemetery was so beautiful and peaceful and was my favorite spot, but I loved the whole afternoon! I would give this tour 10 stars if I could!

Remy was fantastic! His knowledge, passion and appreciation of history were boundless. I highly recommend to those with little historical knowledge all the way to history fanatics!
Excellent Tour
SHARON_N, Jun 2023
Remy was excellent. He gave very detailed stories and information. Would definitely book with him again. He kept it interesting with snippets of history. He also gave it a personal touch making sure everyone got their personal photos. He has good English with a great French accent. He was passionate about the subject and invested in us learning.
Family Friendly Tour
TzeYun_Y, Apr 2023
Guillaume was a knowledgeable and friendly guide who was able to share the history of D-Day in a way that informed and captivated our 9yo and 7yo kids. Thank you, Guillaume, for one of the highlights of our family vacation!
Overlord Tours are the best
Brian_m, Mar 2023
Simply amazing. Steve, our driver and guide, was outstanding and his knowledge of the area and events was even better! If you are going to see the D-Day beaches this is the only way to do it right. He used a large book of photos and maps on-site to explain the locations and highlight the people and events of Normandy on D-Day. Tour vehicle was excellent and comfortable. Steve pointed out historic landmarks on the drive. Very efficient tour and hit all the highlights of Omaha Beach, and the cemetery was especially well done. We got out at each of the 6 stops and had plenty of time for photos and walking around.
Excellent tour
Beth_J, Oct 2022
Our Guide Chris was excellent! His knowledge and history of the events leading up to the d-day invasion and what happened during and after was incredible.
Humbling & Surreal
Leasa_S, Oct 2022
We’ve seen the movies, watched the documentaries but it became surreal seeing where the carnage took place. Knowing 75 years ago that beautiful beach was blood red and littered with bodies. This was unlike any experience I’ve had and one all need to see to realize the sacrifice of the men and their families gave. True hero’s. FIVE star tour and I highly recommend it for anyone going to the Normandy area!
Fabulous tour with exceptional guide
Alyssa_I, Aug 2022
If we could give Charles 6+ stars we would. He was an exceptional guide filled with expertise and a gracious considerate attitude. He engaged our children in fascinating conversation and answered our questions with depth and great interest. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour which was truly made special by Charles himself. Thank you!
Great for Americans short on time!
Rich_W, Aug 2022
This is a great tour if you and your family members don’t have a lot of time. It visits several important American-focused D-Day spots that will resonate with anyone who has read/watched about D-Day. Note: Not a lot of time for visitor centers, and the weather can change from stop to stop. Thierry is a wonderful guide!
Leon_R, Jul 2022
All the sites were memorable. The tour Guide, Yannick, was superb and extremely knowledgeable of the history.
Did not disappoint -- We wanted to honor those who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Thank you!!
Dennis_V, Jul 2022
Great tour if you do not have enough time. Even if you do have extra time, this tour brought you to the main sites and was just enough, especially if traveling with kids. Our guide was great (Although I forgot his name at the moment) but heard all guides are very knowledgeable which was proven during our tour. He brought a lot of knowledge and also added some humor when appropriate. We traveled in an air-conditioned bus which was nice since it was a warm day when touring. We would take this tour again if we were to do it over again. This was a Rick Steves' recommendation which so far has always been on mark.
Great experience
Lindsay_I, Jul 2022
Mickael was a great tour guide. Full of interesting facts and clearly loved his job. Great story teller and very personable. The tour was great in length and variety. Definitely worth your time and money while visiting Normandy.
