We were on a recent Jewel of the Seas Transatlantic cruise. We also had Oliver for 2 days exploring the D-Day sites. We did the beaches the first day, along with seeing Pont du Hoc, and the Colleville cemetary. The second day we did more of an emphasis on the Band of Brothers sites. Oliver was there bright an early each day and provided us a lot of info on what happened on D-day and used a lot of pictures and maps to help us paint a visual picture in our minds of what it was like on that day. On the way back to the port we had stops at Bayeaux for lunch and to view the Bayeaux tapestry, a nice little French village for a break for wine and beer, and a second stop for a quick viewing of Honfleur. We were too tired to stop and walk around. On the second day we had people who had visited some sites we had planned to visit on the previous day. They felt Oliver was more informative and brought a different prospective to what they saw and heard the previous day. Both groups felt the tours were excellent. I will definitely go with Overlord tours again to cover other areas of D-Day that we didn't have time to see on this trip and I would request Oliver.
