Rene_K, Jun 2023
Our tour guide Matt was exceptional and outstanding!!! I wish I’d had time to do the full day tour with him, he was just so knowledgable, well spoken and well versed on the subject matter, he brought the whole tour to life with his enthusiasm and story telling, it was really just amazing and hands down the best tour I’ve had since being in France/Paris/Champagne! Thank you Matt!
4 hour D Day tour with Matt
Grace_S, May 2023
Matt was a fabulous guide! He brought to life D Day with his knowledge and personality. The American Cemetery was beautiful and touching. We only had time for the 4 hour tour, all 5 of us agree best tour we have ever taken. I would highly recommend Matt as your guide!

Sally_F, May 2023
We enjoyed our 1/2 day with Matt very much. He was knowledgeable and accommodating to the group. I personally think that the drive back to Bayeux it would have been nice to learn a little about the areas we were driving through, the countryside was beautiful and the home as well.
Moving Experience
Erin_K, May 2023
It was a memorable and moving experience. Our guide John was excellent; very informative and helpful in making sure we saw all of the important sights in the short amount of time we had. Perfect tour if you only have limited time available in the Normandy area.
Covers the Bases
Richard_G, May 2023
US Cemetery. Try to arrive when taps is played. Guide new to this area and so still learning but very nice young guy.
Joel_H, May 2023
Our tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable, I would definitely recommend people to do this tour if you only have a half a day. It was really good because they keep the groups small around eight people I believe.

John_S, May 2023
Guide was gave very limited insights into a most historical sight possibly due to a language barrier even though this was billed as an English friendly tour. As an example the car ride to and from the beaches was about 1/2 hour and he did little speaking. Not worth the money.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear John we have received your review and thank you for it. We will pass it on to our team as you make no mention of who your guide was and will let them know how important it is to make commentaries during driving times especially when all our vehicles are equipped with a microphone headset so that all the participants can hear the comments and guide can drive safely.
John was great!
Lisa_H, Mar 2023
John was a great tour guide and went above and beyond. He gave us a lot of information about Normandy but also gave us time to take pictures, etc. We had a great day!
Efficient, succinct D-Day tour if you have limited time.
sklai8800, Mar 2023
Steve provided enough history & detail & allowed enough time to walk around on our own and explore Pointe du Hoa, Omaha Beach & the American Cementary. If we had more time, we would have liked to see Utah beach & other memorials.
Best 4 hours in Normandy
Emily_C, Dec 2022
Very informative and compact tour of the highlights of the D-Day sites. The afternoon trip ended with the early December sunset and gorgeous skies.
A Day You Will Remember
Lou_P, Nov 2022
Stephen was an outstanding guide. Well prepared, studied, enjoyable. We decided on the half day, which for us turned out to be perfect as you get the “broad brushstrokes” of D-Day. For those wanting or knowing more history, I’d recommend the full day. We took the morning (6:12!) train from Paris to Bayeux. It’s an easy ten minute walk to the meeting point. We all agreed seeing the American Memorial Cemetery was the most moving and emotional part of the experience. But whatever you do, don’t miss seeing the stunning and massive sculpture Les Braves. A day well spent.
Will do again
Bruce_B, Jul 2022
The guide was well instructed on the surrounding area. He was polite, kind and answered all our questions.
Family trip to Normandy
Ellen_H, Nov 2021
Stephen was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and our entire family thoroughly enjoyed the day in Normandy.
Great tour with Steven,...

Great tour with Steven, even on a rainy and wind day. He made the experience meaningful and enjoyable.
Response from Host, Oct 2021

Informative historical sight
Barbara_G, Oct 2019
Steven is an excellent driver, tour guide. Informative. This was a last minute booking for ne. Nice ride. 4 hours was ample for a taste of history.
just a taxi
jobk414, Jun 2019
we were disappointed in the knowledge and guidance of the guide, we should not pay 70 Euro for just the ride !
Response from Host, Jun 2019

Ottimo giro e ottima guida
Erika_C, Aug 2022
L'esperienza di visita è stata ottima, accompagnati dal nostro autista e guida abbiamo visitato alcuni dei punti salienti dello sbarco il tutto accompagnato dal racconto puntuale della guida che mi ha permesso di comprendere appieno l'importanza e la storia dei luoghi. Una gita che consiglierei a tutti quelli che hanno mezza giornata da investire per aumentare la loro conoscenza della storia e la comprensione di quei giorni.
