Bayeux: American D-Day Sites in Normandy Tour
- Small group
- Duration options: 4 - 8 hours
This was a very long day, but we knew what we were signing up for. My husband and I wished we had more time at the Utah Museum. We just ran through it knowing we had other things to do around Utah Beach. Another hour here would have been perfect. To see Pointe du Hoc and to now understand how hard it was for the Rangers to get to their objective was something to see. We enjoyed our little stop at the apple cider farm. Learning the history of the farm and how the various ciders are prepared was interesting. The lunch was outstanding. Everyone at our table selected the cod prepared in the way a Normandy family would have it. The cod and dessert were delicious. Seeing Omaha Beach and the cemetery was very moving. Just to see the cemetery is something you must do. Brad, our guide, was outstanding. He made our tour both interesting and informative. There is so much to see in this area. My husband and I would like to make a trip to the Normandy area and spend a few days there.
Very informative and in depth tour of the main battle points. Stephan was an awesome guide and was very flexible with stopping whenever we found a bunker interesting AND still got us to the cementary well in time for taps. Definitely worth doing to enjoy this historical landmark to the fullest. SUGGESTION: I personally love small stories so maybe including more throughout the tour would make it even more breathtaking and personal. Overall an amazing trip by an amazing guide!
The weather was a problem which greatly deflated the tour. The guides Sinse & Addie were hard working & did their job. I understand that canceling the tour is not economically an option, ame conditionshowever; we literally wasted our day. We could have watched a movie with same results. To meet as early as 7 am. I would pay an extra fee for a boxed breakfast. Rest stops were subpar & lunch was not good. Under same conditions I would have cancelled.
The tour was wonderful! We enjoyed and appreciated the new information we received at every stop. The early morning gathering in Paris at the Trocadero was easy to reach, and the late return to the location still provided easy access to transportation back to our hotel.
Other travelers should know that this will be a long day but well worth it. The coach will make a stop for breakfast. Our driver was the best. Mirian and Sensi were fantastic. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. The best!!!
