From Paris: Normandy Landing Beaches D-Day Tour by Minibus
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 12 hours
Great tour with a wonderful and knowledgable guide. The day is very long but well worth it if you don't have your own transportation to get to the Normandy area. The bus was comfortable, and I'm assuming for safety reasons, they switched drivers half way through the trip, loved this! Thank you for a wonderful day and the education to boot!!
While the tour shows some amazing sites, the day is very rushed with little time at significant sites, and long stretches of driving in between. While the tour guides are great on the bus, there is little insight given once at the sites; and the “dinner” stop on the way home is a 30 minute break at a gas station.
A great trip well worth the money. Our tour guide was excellent, she had so much knowledge of the Normandy days landing and gave us lots of information during the day at each site we visited and during the coach journey. It was a long day, started at 7 a.m. and finished at 9 p.m. but glad I booked the tour.
Bridget’s communication skills are excellent and we enjoyed her many presentations. However, we noticed that most of the other tour guides accompanied their groups on the short walking tours and elaborated on the historical details. The details are always important. On balance, it was a very good tour.
The trip was great & the US cemetery was impressive. The only only downside to the trip was that the guide had such a heavy French accent that it was hard to understand at times. She was very nice & for what we could understand, she was very knowledgeable.
