We visited Paris over Thanksgiving break to avoid a lot of the crowds and we hit the jackpot. My wife and I took our three kids ages 10, 13 and 16. Our guide Nissa was amazing! She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was very well informed on all aspects of WWII to include, planning, strategy, troop commands, local support and overall impacts of every detail. We had great weather for early December. The sun was out and we couldn't have asked for a better day. We hit all of the major stops that Americans want to see, Omaha, Pointe du Hoc, and the American cemetery. It is about a 3 hour drive each way, but we stopped half way going and coming. There are bathrooms and a place to get breakfast which was great since we had the kids with us. We also stopped for lunch and had some local French fare, but they also have burgers, salads and steaks if you are a little less adventurous. This was a very humbling and spiritual place to visit. If your are on the fence about spending a whole day going to Normandy, you must make this trip. This was by far my favorite day trip on our visit to France. Everyone should visit Normandy at least once. I was worried about the kids making it all day, but they held up great. The only thing I might do different is book a private tour that picked us up at the house we rented to avoid travelling to and from the pick up point, but it was really easy to meet up with our guide at the pick up point. It just adds an extra step when you are travelling with kids.

Had a wonderful time on our tour of Normandy D-Day Beaches Day Trip. Very informative and loved that there was only 6 of us in the group. Felt we had more time to ask question and hear the information more clearly.

This tour delivered on everything I had hoped for. I got to see everything I wanted to see. At the end of the day we even met some WWII veterans at the American Cemetery. Olivier, our guide, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the events surrounding D-Day and got us to and from the area safely and efficiently. I would definitely do this tour again if I am ever in France again.

The small tour group (4) was a real plus. Our guide, Emerick was absolutely fantastic. His knowledge and pleasant personality made this a trip to remember. Definitely recommend.

Oliver was great!! Very informative. Didn't get the cider tasting part of the trip but I think we were all so tired it didn't matter.
