Sylvan was very knowledgeable and had great conversations with my husband. The lunch was at a very quaint and beautiful restaurant. From Paris, this is a three hour drive each way. But, well worth it.
We had a great experience during our day at Normandy even though it was a very emotional day for me as my Dad landed there on D-day. Our guide Dimitri was the nicest young man and very knowledgeable of the history. It was nice to have a private tour and be away from the crowds. It was nice to be there so soon after the 75th anniversary and see a few late presentations. Highly recommend!
We were among the throngs visiting the various sites on D-Day and filled with gratitude for the many men and women that put their lives on the line and the strength of relationships with our allies throughout history. It was a very humbling experience viewing the sea of crosses at the US graveyard. Riding through the lush countryside and stopping for lunch at La Ranconniere in Normandy (Crepon) was a very pleasant experience.
Valentin was a great guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable with regard to the history of the area and the local towns nearby. My wife and I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was FANTASTIC!!! My husband and I went to Paris for our 25th wedding anniversary and this was the tour he wanted to take more then any other. I must admit I was a little reluctant when we booked this tour. Boy was I surprised at how great the day was. It will be one of our fondest memories of our trip. Our guide picked us up at our hotel and was an amazing. He had so much knowledge of D Day and took us to places we never expected to see. The lunch was really nice and the food very good. I would highly recommend this tour, it’s a long day but so worth it. We were so happy with all the tour we booked through Victor. When we travel again they will be our tour company.
