Marvellous, brilliant guide. So glad we went on it, much better than just driving ourselves about and missing half of what we saw.

We were a bit disappointed with this tour. What we wanted to see most was Sword beach as we were very interested in the British landings, but there was very little time spent there. On the other hand we had too much time left to wander round a war cemetery. Our guide was very knowledgeable, but not very engaging. And he was hard to hear because the mike in the van was broken.

Good to see a more comprehensive perspective of the region and its history, as a companion to the American sector. Guide was accommodating but we left wanting more insight to such an important part of modern history.
