Overall an excellent tour, tour guide was great. Like other reviews, I wish the museum stop was shorter and had more time at the beaches. Overall a great experience.

One of the highlights of our trip! The motor coach was very comfortable and our guide, Linda, was very knowledgeable. The lunch was a delightful surprise - very tasty and plenty to eat. A very moving experience learning more about D-Day.More

It’s very fast pace though. A lot there to see. Stops were brief. Long drive to Caen follows by short drive to beaches. Lunch was very good.More

From our experience there are paved pathways up to a point but towards the beaches and bunkers it is irregular and unpaved. The American cemetery is paved and more amenable to wheelchairs
