    Great tour with a wonderful and knowledgable guide. The day is very long but well worth it if you don't have your own transportation to get to the Normandy area. The bus was comfortable, and I'm assuming for safety reasons, they switched drivers half way through the trip, loved this! Thank you for a wonderful day and the education to boot!!

A great trip well worth the money. Our tour guide was excellent, she had so much knowledge of the Normandy days landing and gave us lots of information during the day at each site we visited and during the coach journey. It was a long day, started at 7 a.m. and finished at 9 p.m. but glad I booked the tour.

What a memorable tour, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. While the setting was somber, it was heartwarming to see how the brave service members are honored.

Our tour guide, Leala, was amazing. The tour was amazing. It was all amazing and surreal. 100% recommend. Spend the money, you will not be disappointed.

The museum was great. The ride was a little long from Paris (but to be expected)
