Since returning from our vacation, I have been asked several times how I liked Normandy, Honestly, I really struggled with how to respond to that question. The typical "oh, we had a great time" or "we really loved it" just didn't seem to capture the feeling or give the respect that this special place deserves. I have finally decided the... More

We did a private tour with Jonathan and we couldn't have had a better tour!!! Jonathan was very flexible with our requests and went out of his way to accommodate us. We had considered renting a car and seeing the area ourselves and I am so glad that we didn't. We would not have been able to see a fraction... More

We just returned from a day tour of the Canadian and British sites. We were so fortunate to have Colin Taylor as our guide. Not only was he knowledgable but he was also so accommodating knowing we were Canadian. We were also lucky that there was only one other British couple on the tour so we got to see more... More

All I can say about our recent tour (Overlord 2) with your agency on September 26th, 2014, is that the guide was great and the tour itinerary was excellent. The tour was taken in honor of my now deceased father who was a part of the Normandy and subsequent campaigns of WW2. I can only imagine his thoughts if he... More

Overlord tours was outstanding from beginning to end! I initially contacted them through email to inquire about their tours and they were very responsive and informative. Becky and Hope were very professional and helpful. I explained that my Dad was stationed in the Normandy region after landing on Utah beach so this tour would be particularly interesting to me. They... More

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
