It was a wonderful tour to be on. Our group's knowledgeable guide provided insightful information on the way to Normandy and at each stop we made. He chose a wonderful restaurant for lunch and a fantastic stop at a local farm for cider and refreshments before we returned to Paris. It is a long day on this tour (about 13 1/2 hours for our day) but well worth the trip. If you are a History buff, you will be in awe taking this tour.
We had an awesome day! The trip was well the time and money. Our guide “Momo” could not have been more nicer. He was on time, very knowledgeable, friendly, and let the group take their time at the locations when needed. The cider tour was a little short but that was no problem because the focus was on the WWII sites. Even the owner of the cider farm was super nice. The country side of France was historic and beautiful. If you ever thought about going to Normandy, this is the trip!
The driver/guide was ready to go promptly at the designated time and location. The drive to the Normandy region was pleasant — the shuttle bus was comfortable and we stopped about halfway to visit a rest area for a bathroom/snack break. Along the way the guide shared interesting facts and information about the area. The tour itself was well planned. The guide, Antoine, had so much information and could answer all the questions. He also had a notebook with him with more detailed overhead pics of the area. I never felt rushed and had time to see everything. Definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants a day trip from Paris to the Normandy region to see the cemetery and beaches.
This Day trip is worth the price. We had Olivia as a host and she was amazing. Although it was raining, she was very accomadating to those who were cold, etc. I learned so much on this tour. We were a group of 8 and it was perfect. Not a lot of walking for those who likes light activities.
This review is for Blue Fox Tours. The tour guide, Amari, was excellent. Very good English, extremely knowledgeable in many topics (of course WWII among them). He took us to about 6 sites (view of Rommel's Normandy home, Omaha Beach, Point Du Hoc, apple farm for orchard tasting, Overlord Museum, American military cemetery). Along the way he was extremely personable and kept the long drive interesting. Highly recommend this tour!!
Do not hesitate to book this tour . This tour was wonderful from start to finish . Nissy was our guide and she was perfect did not hurry us along made it a relaxing and informative day . I had been to the beaches before but my husband had not . He loved it . I went to places I had never gone to before . Wonderful experience
A powerful moving day to a key turning point site of WWII. Neesa (I hope I spelled it right) was an excellent tour guide. She communicated the story with explicit detail. She had the answers to every question asked by the group. She was never in a hurry and took whatever time the group needed to see and take in each stop. Having us finish on the cemetery grounds put everything in perspective. Being able to witness the daily retirement of the American Colors at 5PM touched everyone on our tour. Not a dry eye in our group as the flag was being folded. Thanks Neesa for making it a terrific experience!
This tour far exceeded our greatest expectations! Anna Lisa could not have been any better. So passionate and informed kept the entire day amazing. Buy it being a small group, we were able to see and experience everything without any delays. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
