We took a tour with Brigitte to the beaches associated with the British and Canadian landings and had a very informative day. We were fortunate to have a WWII Veteran and his family on our tour with us which made it extra special. Everywhere we went they made a big fuss of him and rightly so. Brigitte was so knowledgeable... More

In depth, all day tour was fantastic, especially if you are a history buff. Saw all of the major sights with time to explore. Our guide was a former French Marine and did a great job of bringing things to life.

We took tour 2; all day overview. Alan was our guide. He was fabulous. Well informed, and easy to understand. It is a fabulous overview of how the invasion unfolded. Wish we could have had a little more time in the museums, but there was much to see. My advice is take the tour one day, and return on your... More

When I left my drivers license back in the states and couldn't rent a car, I thought that my trip to honor my 4 uncles WWII service was ruined. Instead it was rescued by Overlords's Alain, who showed and talked to us about sites that even this veteran hadn't heard of. Bring sunglasses, a jacket and comfy walking shoes because... More

I took my teenage son on this tour, stayed in Caen the night before - tour was all day and started on time. Make sure to bring something warm as parts of Normandy - especially the clifftops get very windy and cold. This tour really confirmed the value of taking a guided tour as you really get more info than... More

My husband and I did this tour. First bit of advice: Bring warm jackets!!! These are beaches with strong, cold wind from the English Channel. I was miserable with my fleece jacket. I had to stay in bus a couple of times in the morning until it warmed up. Our tour guide, Allen, knew the history very well and you... More

We booked an afternoon half-day tour of Omaha Beach, Pointe du Hoc, and the American cemetery. The sights are inherently moving, but our guide Colin truly transported us to June 1944. He was equal parts expert historian and gifted storyteller. The half day tour was perfect for us, given our time constraints, but we barely scratched the surface. On our... More

Our tour of the Normandy beaches, particularly OMAHA and UTAH, was with 14 other people who were eager to begin the tour prior to the stated "departure" time of 8:30a.m. Our guide, Alain, was a history book par excellence His knowledge as we drove in a most comfortable van, was more then enlightening. Alain made one feel the history. Our... More

We did the half day tour with Overlord Tours and loved it. We felt the length of the tour was just right for our tight schedule in Paris. Dominique managed to get us to all the sites and was very charming and professional while giving us a lot of information. We would highly recommend her and the overall experience with... More

We spent the day with Alan on the Overlord tour. I can't imagine driving around on our own to see the the beaches. These people know their history. To have watched so many documentaries of the war and then to see the expanse of the beaches and what the troops went through I was teary eyed more than a few... More
