The tour was very interesting. The museums we visited were really informative. The American cemetery museum information in particular was in English, which was great. The restaurant we were taken to was disappointing. We visited in December and it was very cold, with very few shops and restaurants open but, also, very few tourists which was great. I did struggle to hear and understand what the guide was saying at times. The small group size was great- 7 plus driver.

4 of our group plus 1 other. Our guide, Regis, was exceptional. The courtesy and knowledge that was extended to us during the tour was excellent and much appreciated. The tour was never rushed and everything was explained in detail along with personal photos from his camera and website recommendations to extend the depth of knowledge delivered. Every American should see Normandy if they are fortunate enough to visit France. Never forget the sacrifices made by these brave men, whatever their nationality.

Great small group tour.

This tour was amazing! Very personal and small group, only 5 people including myself which was awesome. Location easy to find. If you can aim to go on a Saturday as the Paris traffic is almost nonexistent on the way there and not bad on the way back, leaving you with more time at each site.
