The bus was very comfortable and clean. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, however, she spoke very softly , had no microphone while out of the bus and was very difficult to understand.
Great tour! Tour guide was excellent! Very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. Lunch was great! Only wish we had spent more time at the American Cemetery and the museum. Would add that this trip may be difficult with young kids.
I am a serious history buff so this was high on my bucket list. The plusses...highly emotional day for the son of a WW II American vet. The realism of the severity of the bombardment is evident at Pont du Hoc. Huge shell craters and the remains of the German bunkers attest to the force of the shelling. To be able to walk on Omaha Beach was quite moving. The negatives...too long at the Caen museum. While this is like a quick highlight tour of the war and the causes leading to it, I would have liked more about D Day itself and not about the Holocaust, Pearl Harbor, the Blitz, etc. it was a very long day made longer by a pointless ride to Juno Beach but not access to the Canadian Memorial there. The tour guides were pleasant and informative to a degree but had a number of misstatements and exaggerations.
