The tour was fantastic and highly informative. The locations we visited were amazing and sobering. Ian, the tour guide was like a storyteller. My wife and I learned heaps from him. We were very happy to take this tour.That said, the logistical information provided was a problem. Buried in the instructions was the GPS location. There did not appear to be any helpful information on parking near the collection spot. There was no follow-up email before the event containing useful information, nor could I find it online or via the app.

The experience from start to finish exceeded our wishes. Because we did not plan for nearly enough time in France's Normandy region, we knew that, above anything else, we should get an expert guided tour of the American D-Day Beaches and cemetery. We chose the Bayeux Shuttle's all-day tour in a small, comfortable van. We met the Shuttle and six other guests at a stop right outside of our hotel - Churchill Hotel. Convenience of that was a good start to the day. Weather good - cloudy but mild temps. Ian, from Britain, was our guide who had visited Normandy several years before and was so inspired, he became a guide. We learned so much from him as we drove along through the lovely countryside and villages. He told us of little known facts and personalities that were important to the operation as were the significant people and events. Along the beaches, not only did we see the remnants of extensive German defenses but learned of their unexpected weaknesses on that fateful day. Of course the beaches and cliffs were sites to behold because of the daunting challenges they presented to the Allied invasion which consisted of thousands of ships and tens of thousands of troops. Almost inhuman. The cemeteries respectfully memorialize the fallen. Ian planned our visit to the American cemetery for the playing of TAPS and the lowering of our flag, an expression our national mourning. Thank you Bayeux Shuttle and a special thanks to Ian.

This company does it right.. Mike our guide was exceptional and the size of the group was just right. They choose the visits carefully and the full day tour allowed us to explore in detail some sites that were not available to others who did the half day. Lunch was delightful in a private venue with period accents of the day.

We knew this would be a great tour, but it was better than we imagined. Ian Everingham, our guide, was so knowledgeable and explained everything in great detail. I never expected to learn as much as I did. He answered all questions thoroughly and was very entertaining. We were really glad we had time to take the full day tour. Neither of us will forget the experience.

Before I arrived in Normandy I was convinced that I could not possibly look upon the World War II veterans with any more admiration and respect than I already had for them. I was proven wrong by going on a Viator tour of the D-Day beaches. The intimate stories, the sites they chose to tour, and just being at the American Cemetery, brought a whole new level of insight and emotion that I never expected to experience when booking the tour. They do a first rate job and made my first trip to France beyond memorable.

The D-Day tour was amazing. We had Mike as a tour guide and he did a great job. He knew a lot of details and I can’t recall a single question he was not able to answer. We started with the German cemetery, went to Utah Beach, Pointe du Lac, stopped for lunch at a cafe decorated as it would have been in the 1940s, went to Omaha Beach, and finally wrapped up with the US cemetery when flags were lowered for the day. It was an awesome experience. I would highly recommend it!
