This was a highlight of my trip. The walk through history, and the imagery is incredible. The guide was excellent and the commentary outstanding. The sites visited were a must see for anyone that appreciates the history and the sacrifices made at this time in history. Felt a little rushed at some of the sites, and would've liked to have time to stroll through some of the towns that were destroyed and now are rebuilt during WWII. We zoomed past a lot of things I would have liked to have taken a closer look at. The lunch was excellent, served at the main museum, which had fantastic displays. Lots of short films, which we didn't have time to see all. Totally worth a guided tour to get the stories and images from the time period. December a good time to visit, not too crowded.

I had been staying in Paris for the last three months and I was trying to put together all my own to visit Normandy, this trip took the hassle out of everything. A delicious lunch was provided and we were able to hit all the marks.

We were able to see a lot in just one day. The travel time from Paris went quickly as the tour guides gave interesting narrative during the drive. I might have preferred a quicker bag lunch and more time at the museum rather than an hour for a sit down lunch though. This was definitely worth the time and money to attend and we would recommend it to others.

One of the best tours I have ever done. It's rather emotional to stand on the D Day beaches an imagine what it would have been like in WWII. The American Cemetery is also a must see. Beautiful scenery on the way there. The lunch was excellent. Highly recommended
