Continue onto to Omaha Beach to hear moving accounts of courageous US soldiers who landed on the beach to attempt to conquer Nazi forces. Hear shocking numbers of casualties and then head to the Normandy American Cemetery to quietly reflect beside more than 9,000 American graves.

Romain, our driver was incredibly knowledgeable and very accommodating. Great experience all the way around! Fantastic just wish we would have docked in Cherbourg. La Harve is a bit of a ways to the landing beaches.

Our tour with Viator was everything we hoped it would be. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I was pretty aware of the D Day landings but she added information that I had not been aware of. I would recommend Viator to anyone who wanted a comprehensive day tour of Normandy.

Excellent tour- Phillip was an amazing guide and provided a lot of information about the events leading up to D Day. He was a complete professional and did a great job. I highly recommend both the tour and Phillip as a guide. Wonderful day.

The tour was terrific. Phillip was an excellent tour guide. We had been to Normandy area a couple years ago as part of a Viking Cruise tour, but learned a lot more history, and interesting facts, being with Phillip.
He picked a very pleasant local place for lunch and everyone from the grandkids to the grandparents enjoyed it.

Excellent Tour. We had a chance to see anything and everything. Guide is willing to adjust schedule and take you to wherever you want to go. We took a short lunch and were able to see another destroyed German Battery. This is much better than a bus tour.
We took this tour from a Princess Cruise and had no issues with pick up or drop off.

Great tour with a great guide-Johnathan. We were met at the ship and were on our way. Johnathan shared the history and culture of Normandy as we drove through the countryside. The landing sites and cemetery were interesting and a moving experience. All 8 of us agreed that it was a 5 star experience

The ability to control just what we spend time on makes this tour much better that the ships's tour.

Adrian was absolutely fantastic. He was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable and willing to improvise for senior citizens. I would give him an A for my adventure to Normandy. If I can only give stars I'd give him 5 bright stars.

Francois was our driver and historical guide. He knew all the history about D Day. We stopped at Pointe du Hoc and saw all the bunkers and points the Allies came in. Then to the American Cemetery which is so sobering to see. Next Omaha Beach. Totally amazing day. Francois made it all come to life. Great time, well worth the time and money. Thanks Francois!
