Very worthwhile tour
joseph_s, Sep 2023
Excellent tour. Excellent guide. Tour went beyond my expectations. Fredric, our guide, did a great job. He explained everything that we saw on the tour. He also took us to smaller places that had significant impact on the success of the invasion. His explanations were very thorough. We could not have had a better guide.

Antoine was extremely knowledgeable about the context of the invasion and the specific. He had some great stories that lent individual detail. There was never a moment that was not used for him to discuss the landings.
A trip with a lasting impression

Our guy, Antoine, was superb. If one is a taking a tour, Antoine is guide. He humanizes the experience which enables one to relate to the events of 1944. It is a trip that the younger generation needs to take in order to appreciate the sacrifices.—and Antoine is the one to elicit that understanding from them.
DDay Family Tour

Guillaume was a fantastic guide. He took us to all the key spots and had a wonderful book with maps and photos that coincided with his tour. Our final stop in Agonville at the church was a very great story about two medics at hat just happened to pick a church named after two Turkish Saints that were also medics in their day. Both my husband and 2 son in laws are very interested in WWII history so the cat was very well spent.
It was great!!

This was the absolute best tour of our trip so far. It gave us a good overview of D day ! Charles was an amazing guide in that his knowledge of history and events were so in depth!!
A must see tour !!!!!!

This was truly one of my favorite tours I have ever taken . Our guide was amazing. He was full of information and was excited to share it . If you are interested in history and WW2 this tour will leave you speechless. If I could give it 10 stars I would.
Band of Brothers fans - this one is for you !

Yannick presented inspiring stories of self sacrifice, courage and bold action in the face of danger. One could easily see his deep knowledge and strong passion for it all. Much of the tour followed Easy Company from the Band of Brothers series. I was especially impressed with the private access we had to actual actual battle sites like Brecourt Manor.
My personal favorite - a story I had never heard before about Bob Wright and Ken Moore, two young US medics and their heroic actions at Angoville au Plain church during the days after D-Day.
I am so glad that I got to experience this amazing full day tour. The highlight in our two week trip in France.

This was a really incredible tour; highly recommended. Our tour guide Thiery was excellent, friendly, and very knowledgeable about every location we visited.

Janic was such a great guide! He was skilled at conveying the emotional weight of D-Day sacrifices, and I felt like he gave us an honest account of what happened to both soldiers and civilians.

James_M, Aug 2022
Our guide, Yanek, told memorable stories about the soldiers experiences at each location. Seeing the casements, the beaches, the roads brought to life what we had seen in movies. The American Cemetery was humbling and beautiful spot as it should be for those entombed there.
One of the best tours ever

Great tour. Guide (Charles) was really outstanding - great at explaining the complex military operations involved in D day and clarifying exactly what we were seeing at the different stops. Highly recommended.

My son and I had a great day with Antoine, who was enthusiastic and added a lot of value to our excursion. Detailes stories and explanation with lots of pictures.
We are looking back at a wonderful experience with Overlord Excursions
Overlord Allain is Awesome!
Brian_K, Jun 2019
Allain was our guide and did a terrific job! Traffic was insane as it was the 75th anniversary of D Day, he still managed to do a terrific job. Offering a discount on a future tour because of unexpected issues from extra security was a nice touch but not necessary

Mycket trevlig och kunnig guide. Bra upplägg för besöken även om det ibland upplevdes som kort om tid på respektive plats.
