Can't Miss D-Day Full Day Tour!
Sean_W, Aug 2021
First and foremost, our guide, Igor, is amazing at this job! He picked us up at our hotel which was out of his way. His breadth and depth of knowledge coupled with his multi faceted approach to passing on that knowledge, provided for an entertaining and fascinating day of learning. We had three generations on our tour - my father in law, me and my son. We enjoyed Igor's passion for the history and heritage of the region. His numerous accounts of different people involved in D-Day brought a human side to the immense military operation. I was very impressed with attention to detail and concern for our enjoyment. He made sure we did not miss the lowering of the US Flag at the Omaha Beach Cemetery and the playing of Taps. So Powerful!. Can't say enough. His price is very reasonable and so worth it. You will not regret booking with Igor.

Susan M, Oct 2017
Well worth it. Igor, our guide was excellent. He was very enthusiatic, passionate about the history of Normandy, full of facts. We saw The Pegasus Bridge, Museum, Omaha ,Juno Beaches. Pointe du Hoc. At the Amercian cemetary, Igor timed it so we would see the flags lowered. Very humbling. Enjoyed a delicious lunch at Omaha Restaurant. There was just 2 of us. He said he can take up to 8,but does not combine groups

Betsy W, May 2017
My husband and I did not know what to expect with this tour. We knew that we had a large wish list of things to see in Normandy and we were not sure how much of our wish list was attainable on our one day tour. This tour exceeded our expectations as our guide Igor Rosen of Normandy Tour spent 10 hours with us to make sure we could see all of the things we wanted to see! Igor was very knowledgeable and my husband and I learned so much about the invasion and the months that followed. Igor was able to answer all of our questions and more! I would recommend this private tour for anyone. It was expensive but well worth it!
Excellent tour, My guide Igor Rosen...
Peter_M, Dec 2016
Excellent tour, My guide Igor Rosen was very accommodating and able to fit in as many sites as we could given the short December day. He had in-depth knowledge, photos, maps, videos, and painted the picture of D-Day from the allied perspective as well as the Germans.
