We did a full day tour of the D-Day beaches and Normandy region as day trip from our cruise ship which docked in LeHavre. It was one of the most amazing tour experiences of my life. Our guide, Yannick, was extremely knowledgeable and his passion for WWII history was evident. I have a deep interest in the WWII era and... More

Last week (6/30/15) my husband and I booked a full day (8:20 am - 6pm) coach tour with guide Alain. Detailed instructions for parking in Bayeux, meeting place, etc. were provided prior; passengers (about 20 Americans) were directed to our coach and guide and we left promptly. Alain speaks English fluently with a charming accent and there was no problem... More

This tour was amazing. I've read a lot about WWII and D-Day, but to see what the allies went through to overcome all these obstacles was amazing. Pierre was very smart and knew a lot about not only the history of the invasion, but also the history of the area of Northern France. I learned so much from him. I... More

Excellent Tour. On the tour (June 8th) were a couple from New Zealand, couple from South Africa and ourselves from the UK, plus Nigel. We had a great day under the guidance of Colin whose knowledge of the history was incredible and his inside stories made fascinating listening. The banter between Colin and Nigel was great. If visiting the Normandy... More

My wife and I took our adult children on a private, day-long tour with Brigette of OverlordTour in late June. We had decided on Overlord because we had taken the very same tour in 2008 and wanted our children to experience Normandy on their very first visit to France. We were not disappointed. Even though we covered the key highlights... More

My family and I took a full day private tour with Gwen today, and it was spectacular. From the very first moment Gwen anticipated our every need, and was very adaptable. He sensed that we were familiar with Band of Brothers, and made sure we saw all of the highlights. Gwen knew his material extremely well, and was prepared with... More

We took two full-day tours with Overlord, on June 5 (small group with Sophie) and June 7 (private with Jonathan). Both were excellent! As a person, Sophie was delightful. As a tour guide, she was knowledgeable - clearly explaining the events, people, strategy and outcomes of those momentous days. Sophie spotted us in a restaurant the next day, and knowing... More

Great day visiting the historical sites related to Easy Company. Very interesting and knowledgable tour guides, with access to all the regular sites but also some privately owned properties. Highly recommended for anyone interested in D-Day / WW2 History

We took the whole day tour and were not disappointed! The content of the tour is unmatched - and the passion of the guides adds a flair I don't think you'd get anywhere else! This is a "must!" One thing I will offer as hopefully constructive - we toured on a 100degree hot day unusual for the area. A cooler... More
