The area of Normandy is filled with military history and one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. Sure you can go see some of the sights yourself but if you want to visit the most places with the greatest amount of knowledge and explanation at each site then look no further than this tour company.

Our family spent a full-day tour with Yannick last week. We had an amazing day touring the Normandy sights. Yannick shared his passion for and knowledge of WW2 history with us. Our children (ages 6 and 8) enjoyed it as well, and we all learned so much. We would definitely recommend Overlord Tours to anyone coming to Bayeux!

We recently had an all-day tour of Normandy, Band of Brothers Tour, with Gwen as our guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm made the tour!! You will need good walking shoes. If you have a chance, watch "The Longest Day" and/or the D-Day landing section of "The Band of Brothers" before your trip. This will help things really come to life... More

We traveled from Paris to Bayeux for a half day tour of Normandy. It really was worth the cost and the trip. We took the first train from Paris, explored Bayeux for a few hours and after the tour, took the last train back to Paris. Book your train tickets to and from Bayeux in advance, it is not like...

We signed up for the 1/2 day tour with our guide Sophie. She was delightful and very informative. She shared so many things that can only come from a local, with family from the area. The small group allowed for time alone to explore more. Pace overall was perfect. Highly recommend!

What a fantastic day! Yannick our guide was brilliant and his knowledge and enthusiasm made the whole day very memorable indeed. He was on time and was polite, patient & helpful through out the whole day. The tour is great and you learn a lot from Yannick about all aspects of the war. The day is long so make sure... More

My wife and I had been on a week-long tour in Normandy for the 70th Anniversary of D-Day but there were sites that we wanted to revisit and others that we missed last year. We signed up for Overlord’s 101st Airborne tour and our guide was Colin. He was very personable, extremely well-informed, funny and a perfect guide. My wife... More

We took the train from Paris to take the afternoon tour. We had a little difficulty following the instructions to join the tour. Their instructions didn't include how to walk to the meeting point and it's a little trickier then we expected. However, we did find the hotel they mention, but there was no office there nor was their a... More

We booked the full day tour from Paris to see as much of Normandy as we possibly could. We ended up getting train tickets the morning of... it's doable, but more expensive! So if possible, get your tickets in advance. We took the metro to the train station first thing in the morning and got on an early train from... More
