Our Overlord tour, taken in late October, was a most memorable day and a great way to experience that historic event. Alain, our tour guide, held our interest at every moment, and could answer all questions asked. It was a long but memorable day and I highly recommend both the Overlord tours and our most informed guide. So many sights... More

Peter Muller, my driver n guide, was more a friend who was as interested as I am in the Normandy landings. Really got an in-depth view of the landings from the view of those who fought. Other sights in scenic Normandy were beautiful too. Had a great French lunch at an authentic French restaurant

Book your tour early. We did our tour in early September and had just booked the day before. It was the 70th anniversary of WWII so the tours were even more popular. We emailed other tours and there was no availability at all. We got lucky and there was a cancellation with Overlord tours so we were able to get... More

Great Omaha/Band of Brothers day. Our guide had lots of maps and photos and knew the detail to bring the D-Day and following week or so to life for us. Private tour was great for myself and 14 year old son as we could tailor it a bit to suit our needs. November timing was also great as it must... More

We spent a windy, rainy morning in the company of our guide, Peter. Inclement weather aside, it was the most worthwhile morning of our trip to France. Peter's insight and knowledge were outstanding. There wasn't one question thrown at him that he was unable to answer. I highly recommend Overlord Tours for their ease of booking, promptness, and extremely well-prepared... More

During a recent to France and Belgium, we planned to spend a week in Normandy (Bayeaux) so that we could visit the D-Day beaches. My wife's uncle served in the 101st Airborne Division in WWII and, although he never spoke a word about his experiences, we were curious to see first-hand what has been depicted in movies like Band of...

Visit the DDay sites, great especially if you like history and war films. Overlord got us around in a well paced manner, very informative. Suggest that if you rent a car from CDG-Paris include Giverney and Versailles on the way back or after landing in the morning like we did....Great 2 1/2 days... Car rental use was a much better...

We booked with Overlord for November 3, very late in the season. We were lucky to have Colin as our guide; he came off his planned holiday to take us and our group of 8 on the Overlord "Tour 2" - all day. I don't know how one can do this in half a day though I'm sure it's still... More

My wife and I used the Overlord Tour group for our day trip from Paris to Normandy. We were very pleased with our decision to use this company. We took the train from Paris to Bayeux and once we arrived, our guide Bridgitte was already waiting for us at train station. We booked the 1 day 2FS tour of Normandy,... More
