Our guide was perfect. Well versed in numerous historical details and places, including some lesser well known stories and places that really added to our experience.

Lots of facts and figures and a very efficient guide who clearly knew his top line stuff so that was a plus. He was however quite impatient, terse, dismissive and robotic - a hard gig I know but surely patience and explaining things to the group sometimes more than once is a basic requirement? No sense of camaraderie or humour or connection, just did a short fast intro in each place with quick highlights a lot in the group missed or did not understand, and told us when to be back at the van. Have since spoken to others who had a very different experience on similar tours - it all comes down to the guide at these events and it was a pity this one seemed focused on the bare minimum. Worth the day but with a different, warmer and more approachable (less grumpy and intimidating) guide the experience could have been lifted much higher and explored much deeper.

Great experience. Lots of historical information to help understand what was seen. What is heard, you can’t unhear, what is seen, you can’t unsee, what history has taught us, we must learn.

The German Cemetery was particularly moving to me, especially when our guide explained how young the soldiers were. Of course, going out to the German bunkers and seeing what our Allied soldiers were facing on D-Day. Our guide was excellent, and we learned so much from him.

Haunting Visit

I visited in mid-June so the weather conditions were similar to those on D-Day. It was bitterly cold with very strong winds that made walking on the beach difficult. These factors demonstrated the vicious barriers the Allies faced during the landing.

Such a full day. I was tired but I felt like I knew so much more than ever before. Many important sites visited and time was taken to explore and explain why each one was significant. Personal soldier stories were recounted and much more. He really knew his history and the area. I got more than the price of the ticket I feel.

Fantastic tour with Alex (tour guide)
Jacqueline_d
, May 2022
This was the perfect tour for a group of Americans. Our tour guide, Alex, was amazing, he's English and a WWII fan, providing lots of interesting information. We had plenty of free time at each stop to take pics and explore a little. Lunch was good, although the weather was not cooperating. He has the timing of the day down to the second, getting us to the flag lowering at the American cemetery, exactly in time for the ceremony. Request Alex for your tour!

Normandy tour May 15.
Ann_M
, May 2022
Point au Hoc was just amazing. The American cemetery was beautiful and serene. Our guide was a truly lovely French woman, but her accent was heavy, and a little hard to follow. I felt she could have provided a lot more background on the war and sites we visited, because overall, it felt more like a self guided tour with transportation provided. That was a lot of money for a self guided tour. I could have driven there myself for less than half the price.

Thank you very much for this review The French touch and our French accent are part of a tour led by local French guides able to speak about a region rich with centuries of history in 2 or 3 different languages. Best regards and thank you for choosing GoldbeachCompany Enjoy your vacations

We really enjoyed this tour of the Normandy region WW2 sites. Sophie, our guide, was very friendly, and went out of her way to provide historical information and answer questions at each stop on the tour. It was a long day, but well worth it! Visiting these important sites was a humbling experience. Highly recommend.

Normandy at last !
KarenH_S

We had a day packed with D Day history thanks to Alex. He knew the story of Normandy thanks to his grandmother. A family connection always inspires you. Visiting the beaches of Utah, Omaha, Juno then St-Mere-Eglise , Pointe du Hoc and traveling the same roads our troops did during the invasion was memorable. Alex had a wealth of information he shared with our group of 8. We had a magnificent day. The most moving part was when we were at the US Cemetery for taps as our flag was lowered. Thank you Alex. You must visit these sites with a guide or you will miss too much.
