Our tour in Normandy with our guide, Monica, was exceptional! She was so knowledgeable of the history and thoughtful of our requests for the day. We saw all of the well-known sights of D-Day as well as smaller places where more personal stories happened. It was these lesser known stories of individual heroes that made this a very special experience.... More

My family, a group of 6, were taken on a wonderful tour by Monica and it was more than one could have hoped after reading about. She met us at St. Mere Eglise and showed us many sites, Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Pont du Hoc and the Cemetary. As well as many other smaller memorials and sites dedicated to the... More

For starters, our tour was lead by Rene who has to be one of the foremost experts in the world of DDay/WWII history. He has immersed his life from a young age in learning about this area and the sobering events which took place here. Rene has even gone to a jump school in Oklahoma to jump out of a... More

We dealt with Monica in the months leading up to our visit and I hoped she would be our guide. I just had total confidence this would be all we hoped for. We ended up with Rene as our guide and he exceeded the hopes and expectations we had for the tour. Can't recommend this company enough!!

My wife and I had been in Normandy serval times before for the WWII sites. This trip we had our grandson along and wanted to do something special. We signed up for the two day tour which primarily covers Utah and Omaha beach areas. Our guide was Rene Van Oirschot who was not only very informative but also just one... More

I took the US tour in August 2016 with Monica as our guide. The tour was excellent! We took the train from Paris to Carentan and Monica picked us up at the station. The tour started in Sainte Mere Eglise at the museum. She took us to see Utah and Omaha beaches, the American Cemetery and also stopped at various... More

We were unsure as to how helpful it would be to have a tour guide. Rene was helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. Its too much information to absorb without someone giving the big picture of D-day. He would bring the information down to what a particular man did at a site. It made each site more personable and... More

I participated in a tour guided by René with my parents and two others focusing on Utah and Omaha beaches and the American cemetery. René was incredibly knowledgable about any and all aspects of D-Day and WWII, being able to answer just about any question we threw his way. His knowledge put the battle into completely new light for me... More

Cannot say enough about D-Day Battle Tours. If you are considering a D-Day beaches visit, please consider taking D-Day Battle Tours - don't just go visit yourself. There is so much interesting and valuable information that you would never get unless you read about every book about D-Day that there is! Rene was an outstanding and personable tour guide, whose...
