Did the full day tour that covered Omaha Beach,Utah Beach, Poinet Du Hoc, and the 101st Airborne landing zone. It was absolutely amazing. Would do the two day your if I had time. Our guide had many anecdotes that made it feel like you were talking to the veterans themselves. Good for people with any range of WW2 knowledge. Everything... More

My brother and I did a private tour of the American sector with Peter and it was worth every penny! Peter has in-depth knowledge and passion for his subject...and he has a broad understanding of history that allows him to bring additional perspective to the events on D-Day and WWII in general. He really brings the history to life. I... More

We took the half day tour of Omaha Beach (Overlord Day Tour) travelling in from Paris via train in early July. It can be done but is a very long day! One could spend a few days touring in the area but Brigitte, our guide, was able to give us a good overview in an afternoon. If you only have... More

Colin was amazing. I am not a history buff but my husband is. I had the most amazing time. If given the chance I would take a two day tour next time. We able to see several different locations within the area of Normandy. It was worth every penny. Keep in mind that the train from Paris to Normandy is... More

Our tour, led by the excellent Colin, packed a huge amount into the day. Covering the British and Canadian beaches we went from museums to cemeteries to battlefields. In addition to a huge knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject, Colin added a range of anecdotes from veterans that no history book will give you. Hugely enjoyable.

We took the half day tour to Omaha beach and 3 other stops. We communicated by email in advance and all the arrangements were specifically detailed in confirming emails. Dominique was our guide and she was knowledgable, well informed and worked well with our group of 8. The information she provided really helped us understand the happenings of those terrible... More

Brigitte picked us up promptly at the Port of La Harve for a day long tour of Normandy and drop us at our hotel in Bayeux. The vehicle was clean and spacious and Brigitte was a very good driver and extremely knowledgeable of the Normandy Invasion history. It was a very memorable day. Besides the beaches she took us to...

I had the full day tour with guide Stefan in August, 2014. I didn't know much about WWII before the tour, so I went to learn and understand more about D-Day and what occurred in Normandy. Stefan explained each site in detail, and answered any question that was asked completely. He was a wealth of knowledge and a terrific tour... More

Bridgett did her research and even drove the route prior to our day to ensure a great day for us. She picked us up at the cruise ship in a comfortable van. In the arrangements she was asked to hit the high lights of the Canadian memorials and she certainly did that. She had stories and was so respectful at... More

My 18 year-old son and I recently returned from a 4 city trip to Europe. The long planned trip achieved two life long ambitions for me, watch tennis at Wimbledon and visit the D Day beaches. Both of us like history and wanted to do this. We took a two day tour with Overlord Tours on 2 July and 3... More
