Had a wonderful personalized tour with Olivier during our recent vacation to France. His knowledge and enthusiasm made our day tour a highlight of our trip. Highly recommend this company and Olivier for their professionalism and expertise!

We had a fantastic day with Colin as our guide. It was as good as I had hoped and better than expected. Colin kept the teenagers entertained with his anecdotes and first hand knowledge gained from speaking to many veterans.Thanks Colin

We chose to be in Normandy for only one night and do a tour of the D-Day attractions. We chose the Overlord Tour because it had just the right half day tour for us at the right time of day. We were escorted by Peter. Peter gave us a very good tour, making sure to keep the 8 of us... More

I booked an all-day tour (8 people) of the American sector of the Normandy landings for August 5, 2014. Peter met us at the cruise ship in Le Havre in a modern, comfortable van and we embarked on an amazingly powerful, informative and truly memorable visit to the sites that shaped history. Peter did a remarkable job showing and explaining... More

At 8 a.m. we gathered with 7 other adventurous souls to begin a day long experience of a lifetime. Our guide, Dominique, a french historian and advanced student of the events surrounding D-day moved through an extraordinary account with rich documentation she had gleaned from countless periods of study and research. For 8-9 hours, we lived the lives of brave... More

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
