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!
Lunch was excellant, ordered vegetarian. Tour was very good and the guide was excellant! Bus was very good. The sites had so much information, hard to absorb it all in time alloted.
History came alive on this excellent tour. The guide was knowledgeable, the museum and lunch in Caen were excellent.
An excellent day with our excellent guide Dimitri. Incredible experience. Superb lunch stop. Would highly recommend this tour.
Our trip to Normandy was great. We bought the pick up and drop off portion, which was excellent. They were at our place on time in the morning.
The tour guides were very knowledgeable about the history which made it even better. So happy we booked this.
My husband and I were very impressed with our experience in Normandy. It was so humbling to be on hallowed ground and see what sacrifices our grandparents' generation made. It was a long day, but worth it. The tour was very organized, however it was hard to not be disappointed that we didn't get to spend as much time as we wanted at the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach, but we understand that it was necessary due to the distance we were traveling. Our tour guide, Agnes, was very knowledgeable.
Definitely a worthwhile tour. It was an amazing experience to be at Pointe Du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. It was a long day, but well worth it. I will have to say that the day was very rushed. BRING SNACKS. I understand that we had a lot to see and a lot to travel but felt it could have been organized better. We only had 30-45 minutes at Pointe Du Hoc and 15 mintues at Omaha Beach before driving an hour to spend another 20 minutes at Juno Beach.
The guides were nice but the lead guide was very difficult to understand. It sounded like she was rambling off a script in a monotone voice with a strong accent. Another person on the tour commented that she sounded like Charlie Brown’s Teacher. So although I would have loved to listen about the history of where we were and what we were going to see, I could not understand what she was saying.
Driver was 15 minutes late for pick up. The A/C in the car was not working so to cool the car down, windows needed to be open. Tour guide spoke French - English as a second language. Natasha talked in the car but with windows open and broken English we could not hear or understand most of what she said. Guide was informed that we could not hear her. She stated this is as loud as it will go, it will have to do. We were dropped off at sites, told to go look and she would meet us at the car. We were not given any guided information at each site. We were not given time to go into museums. Lunch was nice. Wait staff was pleasant, food was good. We left to drive back to Paris, and as we approached Paris we had to stop at a car wash and wait for the car to be washed (20-25 minutes) before returning to Paris. I would not recommend this tour. It was more of a driver than a professional tour guide.
