My husband and I went on the full day tour of the american beaches and the band of brothers tour. philippe was our guide and I can not say enough wonderful things about our experience. I learned more in this day about the D-Day invasion than I learned in all of my years of history. The best part is that he keeps it super interesting, fun, and still allows for plenty of time for questions and photos. My husband has watched all of the movies and documentaries and he came away from this experience very moved, as did I. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. I have traveled through much of Europe and this is by far, one of the highlights in all of my travels.
