Everything about the trip was great! Sights to see, lunch, museum, Omaha and Utah beaches, all well done. And our tour guide, Victoria, was FANTASTIC!!!!
What a great experience. Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, the timing of site visits was perfect. The lunch at the museum was surprisingly delicious! The movie experience was a great ending. We left with a new found appreciation for history! A must visit and very worthwhile - Thank you
