Last week I went on Day Trip to Normandy from Paris. I know there are mixed reviews on trying to accomplish this in a day but others have asked for my review so....
We left St. Lazare at 7:07 with a stop in Caen to change trains we arrived in Bayeux. Our tour guide Roul was there to pick us up. We booked with Victory Tours basically because their Full day tour started after the first train from Paris arrived.
We toured Arromanches, Omaha, the American Cemetary, Point du hok, St. Marie Du Mont, Utah Beach, and St. Marie Englise. We also stopped at a few lesser know sights because we booked a Private Tour. Roul's knowledge of the area alond with personal stories or stories from servicemen and women he has talked to enhanced the tour and brought June 1944 to life.
Roul was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and a great sense of humor. The other 3 members of our group were more excited to see the sights of Paris but after the week said our tour was the highlight of their trip to Europe.
Roul dropped us back off at the train station before the 6:41 train to Paris. It was the best tour I have ever been on. If anyone has any questions or wants more details, feel free to pm me.
