This was my introduction to the Normandy Landings. Of course I've heard about DDAY and I've seen Saving Private Ryan. BUT I'm no war expert and I had no detailed knowledge of the reality of this battle. It would have been nearly impossible to do all of these sites on our own without a car and expert knowledge of the... More

My wife and I contacted Overlord Tours after getting no less than seven rejections from other operators - 75th anniversary of D-Day made September exceedingly busy. Overlord immediately helped us with available dates, setting up a private full-day, Canadian focused tour. However, it was our guide, Colin Taylor, that we spend the day with that made all the difference. He... More

First thing first, my background and expectation to this tour for your reference: I know some background of the D-DAY and also attracted by the movie. What I expect to see and know is the scene following the timeline of the D-DAY combined with history backstory. Well, I did see the scene but there is almost nothing left. The only... More

This company takes itself seriously when they take you on a tour of Normandy beaches. I reserved a two day tour and was not disappointed. Our guide spoke perfect English and knew everything there was to know about the area. The first day was spent going to Omaha Beach and Utah beach and the town of St. Mere Eglise. The... More

Our trip to Paris would not be complete unless we visited the beaches of Normandy on the year of the 70th anniversary of D-Day. After looking at all the tour choices we chose Overlord Tours. We booked the whole day tour and that fit the bill perfectly. From the very first email I sent them they were extremely helpful and... More

Visiting the beaches of Normandy is not to be missed. It's a very fascinating and moving experience, brought to life by Oliver and Overlord tours. The tour exceeded our expectations with our guide filling the day with the sites and stories to enhance our experience. We saw not only the high points but some interesting lessor known sites as well.... More

The one thing I wanted to do while I was in France was visit the Normandy D-Day invasion area. It was the half-day tour on September 24. Our tour guide was Peter and he was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We were given some time to walk around each of the stops on the tour. Be prepared for an emotional experience... More

My husband has always had the desire to visit the beaches at Normandy. When I knew we would be visiting the area I wanted the day to be perfect for him. I knew a private tour would be the best way to visit this historical area. The decision to use Overlord Tours proved to be a great choice. Eight of... More

Would highly recommend this day tour. Our guide, Colin Taylor, ensured we were well furnished with information, in the form of maps, pictures and those wonderful anecdotes which are so important in bringing history to life. Altogether an absolutely marvellous day!

Our family of four recently took the #2 tour with Alain from Overlord Tours. Suffice to say, it was BEYOND our expectations. Alain was knowledgable, patient, informative, humorous, and kind. Actually, the list could go on, but you get the idea. The tour itself was just terrific. It was everything we expected and more! It covered an entire day, and... More
