What people are saying about Bayeux

The car was very comfortable, Steven was a safe and courteous driver, lots of historical information and clearly voiced. We learned so much. Completely fascinating. The museum at Omaha beach needed a bit more time. We got caught up in putting relatives names in the database looking for gravesites. And missed the film in the basement

This was an amazing and a very humbling experience and a must stop if you are in France. Anisa was absolutely fantastic! Very knowledgeable and passionate about WWII history. I’d highly recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Normandy.

Our tour guide, Jonathan, was great. Just the right amount of information, always eager to provide more when asked. Keep us safe while getting us around efficiently.

Steven was an excellent guide. Any questions we dreamed up he had the knowledge to answer them. What an experience, and what a wonderful day.

Steven was an excellent and knowledgeable guide and our group size of 5 was perfect. Definitely enjoyed the day.
