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.
Great trip, comfortable bus, good lunch. The guide had so much knowledge of the Normandy invasion, she was amazing!
Viator staff drivers and guides did an excellent job.... very humbling experience!
Definitely a must see!!!
Our guide was very very good we loved her commentary and lunch was wonderful. So knowledgeable and extremely endearing
I was skeptical that a one say trip to the beaches D-day would be worth the cost but it didn't disappoint.
If you have one day to visit than for my money do it. I'm not disappointed over my decision to go. Visiting point du hoc, beaches containing Mulberies and American cemetery not to mention the local scenery was well worth it.
Our entire group of 15 enjoyed this emotional tour back to D-Day. The guides, Linda and Elaine, were wonderful and shared many enlightening details about the invasion. As Americans, we were proud to have helped liberate Europe and the beautiful French towns and countryside.
I loved every second of this tour! If you're into history, or even if you aren't, this is wonderful!
Great trip. Got to see things up close. Three beaches and cemetery. A must see for anyone interested in WWll history.
The tour and tour guide was outstanding! Our guide was very educated on both the historic events as well as details. The lunch at the Museum was fantastic as well. The entire day was very well planned out including the hotel pick up and drop off. Paris Vision did a wonderful job overall. This was a bucket list tour for me and did not disappoint!
The beginning of the trip was very disorganized and little help to find the correct bus. The bus itself was nice and comfortable. We could barely understand our guide. Her English was not very understandable (at least to our ears) and others commented on it, too, which made us tend to have to work very hard to understand what she was saying. We would have been much happier to have had more time at the museums/cemetery without such a long lunch stop.
