Great tour - highly recommend

Courteous and knowledgeable tour guide, kid friendly but plenty of detail for adults, no way we could have done this on our own despite experience driving in the region.

First, starting with the positives, from a historical perspective, this was a great tour. We saw almost everything that we wanted to see and our guide was quite knowledgeable about the events of the Operation Overlord. From that perspective, I am quite happy. However, on the day that our 12 person shuttle bus took the tour, the temperature exceeded 95%... More

We LOVED the experience and our guide Gwen (a cute young man). He explained everything in great detail, told stories, showed pictures and brought the sites to life. We got to see places off the beaten path. His passion for history was so appreciated. We cannot imagine doing this type of trip on our own. We had Gwen for 4... More

Booked a 2 day tour with these guys of the american, british and canadian beach landings in 1944, based in bayeux, we were treated to some very knowledgeable and entertaining facts and anecdotes that brought the whole day of the landings to life with insights not available in any book, well worth it, ask for gwen hes the man!

We were met by Overlord Tours dockside promptly at the designated time and introduced to our guide for the day, Gwenael Pierre. He was very personable and as we learned throughout the day he was also extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Normandy invasions and much more. We first visited Omaha Beaches and using historical photos and maps of... More

We took the big bus tour, though this outfit offers smaller bus (20 people) tours as well. The tour included a visit to the American Cemetery and the D-day visitors center. Our guide Cathy took us also to Omaha Beach and provided a very thorough explanation of what happened there. They drop you off in Bayeaux for about an hour... More

Yannick, our guide, was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. His album of maps and pictures made the experience even better. I would highly recommend that Americans - including our friends in Canada, take this tour so you can appreciate the sacrifices that the allies made for our and France's freedom. Enjoy your visit to the us Yannick - you're awesome!!!

Today we took a tour to the beaches of Normandy with Michael. It was an informative and extremely interesting tour. Michael was very personable, and very knowledgeable. We went to Omaha Beach, Pointe du hoc, the American Cemetery, and several other sites. Michael's explanations made it all come to life. I highly recommend this tour!!!

We were extremely excited about this tour. It has been on my bucket list for many years, and the itinerary was perfect. I was traveling with my partner,daughter and 16 year old grandson. We met our guide at the pier in Le Havre and Brigette was friendly, and very knowledgeable. The American cemetery and Omaha beach are the most inspiring... More

Did the Band of Brother's Full Day tour with Alain M. as our guide. I was originally going to rent a car and explore Normandy by myself, but I am glad I changed my mind. Alain is an excellent guide, very informative and knowledgeable. He takes time to answer all questions, and will also quiz us throughout his lectures. One... More
