Theresa I

Excellent tour guide...Francoise...she was extremely knowledgeable about WW l and WW ll and all the events leading up to, during and after those wars. A very moving experience to Pointe Du Hoc, Omaha Beach, Juno Beach. The museum was excellent, as was the delicious lunch. The cemetery sight brought to mind the sacrifices of those who fought for our freedom. Very sobering....

This excursion is relaxing, educational, and provides an amazing lunch. I strongly recommend it, as there is no hassle, no stress, and easy to find meeting location. We are grateful we chose La Vacanza Travel for this D-Day trip.

My late father landed on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. He fought his wag off the beach and then continued to fight through France and Germany. It was my wish to visit this beach and the others along the coast, and to hear the history of the liberation of the villages in Normandy in which he participated. Our guide was very knowledgeable and inquired about my father’s unit.
May the souls of those lost on those beaches rest in eternal peace may all the families of both the fallen and the living live with pride in their hearts. everyone should spend time in Normandy. It is the heritage of mankind. This trip was long but perfect.
