we had a wonderful experience 4 years ago with Overlord Tours. Oliver was thoughtful, patient, fun, and informative. I told Oliver we were coming back with more folks (21) for the 70th and have requested him again. Our first trip included 7 people. And all but one is going back this trip. Stay in Bayeux, meet the local people who... More

My neice and I enjoyed our tour of Normandy with Alain who was very knowledgeable. There were solemn moments on Utah and Omaha beaches and at the cemetery. We got a feel for the French countryside and little villages who were greatly affected by the invasion in 1944. My neice's father was part of the 101st Airborne division. We stopped... More

We visited the invasion beaches on Tuesday, April 8. Peter of Overlord Tours did a fantastic job explaining the sights and sharing human interest stories about the area and events that unfolded there. It was quite obvious he loved his job - he was patient and informative and very knowledgable about the history of the invasion. I have traveled to... More

Absolutely awesome 1/2 day tour. We took a morning train from Paris to Bayeux for an afternoon tour and we were not disappointed. Time limitation in our vacation limited to us the 4 hour tour. However, to see enjoy everything I would recommend the full day tour and spend a night in Bayeux. The town of Bayeux is very nice.... More

We took a full-day tour with our guide Brigitte and opted to cover the British D-day landings. We were very impressed with our day - Brigitte is very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions we had. We were able to cover an enormous amount and we learnt such a lot from her. We planned to do more by... More

we took the morning train from paris and did the afternoon Omaha beach tour with Alan. He was able to pack in so much into so few hours! We saw the beach, several important monuments, the American cemetery, and Point du Hoc, just to name a few! Though we wish the weather was nicer, our only regret was not booking... More

Having arrived in Bayeux from Paris in order to visit the D-Day beaches, as well as the town and it's tapestry, we booked Overlord for a half day tour. I thought the 60 euros per person fee was a little steep for 4 hours, but in line with other tour operators in town. We received a fine overview of the... More

We pre booked with Overlord tours and looked to do the British part of the D Day operation. Our guide was Brigitte. She was very knowledgeable about the operation, which made for a good day and greater understanding of the historic event. We visited a number of locations Pegasus Bridge, Juno and Sword beach etc.... When visiting the cemeteries, she... More

I recently spent a day in March with Brigitte on Tour #3 Omaha/Band of Brothers Full Day Tour. She was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and helpful with guiding us through the tour and the different stops along the way. I would recommend the company and the Band of Brothers Tour for anyone who likes to take a tour off the beaten... More

We experienced a great day tour of Normandy and Band of Brothers sites with Bridgette. The tour was informative and the locations were great. It felt a little rushed, but that was by choice as we picked Tour 3, which crammed a lot into the day. The only problem I had was that the Band of Brothers didn't stop at... More
