We spent a great day with Brigette touring Normandy. We were picked up from the LeHavre cruise terminal at 8:00 and spent the day at Omaha, Utah, Memorial, etc. Brigette's knowledge of the invasion was fascinating, and she had maps to accompany all of her discussions. At each stop, she would give us the history and description and then we... More

Imagine walking out to the tour van and being greeted by a middle-aged man in a worn sweater who spoke with an Irish accent and appeared to have possibly come straight over from the local Irish pub? Your expectations may have been lowered somewhat. But your observation could not have been more incorrect. Colin of Overlord Tours turned out to... More

I waited 3 years to take this tour. I researched every tour available for Normandy beaches and this looked the most thorough. It did not disappoint. Dominique was very sick with a cold but was a trooper and did an excellent tour. If she had not been able to do the tour, we would have been out of luck. She... More

We did the full day tour of the British/Canadian sector with Brigitte. Like lots of other reviewers I can't speak highly enough about the both the content and delivery of the tour. Brigitte was great - sharing her knowledge came across as not only her job but also her passion and hobby. We learned so much; more importantly perhaps though,... More

I'd been to France four times, but had never visited the "D-Day" beaches in Normandy. I was able to confirm a spot on the tour with only 6 days notice. I took the 1/2 day Overlord Tour with Peter, which included Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery. The tour is filled the historical details, and Peter was a font of... More

We took the day tour which is very suitable for those coming from Paris just for the day. Our guide was waiting right outside the train station. The tour is very comprehensive: Omaha (2 different stops) and Utah beaches, american cemetry, Sainte-Mere-Eglise, pointe du hoc, the small church that served as a hospital and merderet river bridge. The guide (unfortunatelly... More

July 2014 me and my family (all adults, but Tripadvisor doesn't let you choose that option) were on a private tour with Colin from Overlordtour. We followed the tracks of 101st Airborne (the Band of Brothers tour) and also went to Utah beach. Colin is not your average guide – he is a trained historian, ph.d. and an extremely knowledgable and... More

Becky and Hope, We want to thank you for allowing us to spend the day with Dominique. She was fantastic! Could you please pass along to us our heartfelt thanks and also pass on this for her: the quote that only two kinds of people are going to stay on this beach, those that are dead and those who are...

We recently took the full day Overlord Tour with Alain and were completely taken in by his level of enthusiasm, knowledge and complete professionalism. As an American citizen (born after World War II), I learned of this horrendous time in our world through history classes in school and now that I have visited the area and viewed the sights, this...
