Vacation in Normandy

Monica is very knowledgeable and altered to the tour to accommodate both American and British in our group so that we could visit both beaches. We had a great time.

Rene did a wonderful job of making an entire day interesting! I did not think I would like hearing about war all day long but he had great insight into equipment, strategy, fate and the personalities involved. Senior citizens and college students alike were entranced. We covered all of the important spots and learned things about village life as he... More

We signed up for a two day private tour of Normandy. Elwood was our guide and he is extremely knowledgeable of the history and he had so many personal stories to share with veterans he has interviewed. I give my highest recommendation for D-Day Battle Tours and Elwood

My husband and I took the 8 hr. D-Day tour with Rene of D-Day Battle Tours. Renee was very well informed and an enthusiastic guide who seemed to have a real love of WW 2 history. He had a notebook with many photos and added personal stories of soldiers making the places we visited come alive. We felt a tour... More

My wife, two daughters (8 & 12) spent the day with Rene of D- Day Battle tours on June 24. We booked a small group tour but the other folks cancelled at the last minute. So we had Rene all to ourselves. Rene was great. We took the train in from Paris on the morning of the tour. Rene was... More

Monica Baan skillfully provided us with details and specific information about each D-Day battle site that we visited on June 18, 2015. Sharing her focus and knowledge regarding each site we visited that included the Air Museum, Utah Beach and Omaha Beach helped us learn detailed information about what took place at each of these sites. We were deeply impressed... More

We did a day trip from Paris, which I highly recommend if time allows. Our guide, Monica, was very knowledgeable and sweet. She showed us many details which we would have missed if we did a self guided tour. If you are thinking about booking a D-Day battle tour, do it, you won't regret it

I had prepared to tour the Normandy beaches and area by myself. I had read books and had an audio series for guidance. However, a few weeks before, I decided that this was going to be a better experience if we had a guide. I was lucky enough to get an open date with D-Day Battle Tours. Our guide was... More

Had a fantastic day tour with Monica last week (June 10th, 2015) Me and my father had such a great time with perfect weather all day. All the information, stories and photos during the tour really made it for us. A real highlight of our very first trip to Normandy and a great start to our trip. Highly recommended.

We cannot thank Ellwood enough for providing such an informative and stimulating tour. Elwood's enthusiasm and depth of knowledge makes the 8 hour tour fly by. My husband and I, as well as our travel mates loved the detailed descriptions of the events of WWII. I highly recommend booking with Elwood and this organization. My only regret, is that we... More
