I am not a history buff and tend to fall asleep in historical movies, but this tour was extraordinary and left a lasting impression.
John explained history in a way that I actually grasped. He made every experience 10x better with his vivid explanations which made me ponder and even laugh at times.
This well-planned tour was exceptional. We hit major stops, but we’re able to avoid crowds with John’s approach. One of my favorite moments was witnessing Taps at the American Cemetery.
This was a small group with a very large, and comfortable bus to spread out on. There were ample breaks and easy walking paths. Lunch with the cider/calvados tasting tour was not distracting from the history, but made me appreciate Norman traditions and culture outside of war. I was surprised at how much we were able to taste!
I highly recommend this tour, but John also hosts wine and champagne tastings, Mont-Saint-Michel visits, and food tours. If I had more time, I would immediately book more!

The tour of Normandy was excellent. John, our guide was highly knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting facts about the D-Day invasion and the Normandy area. A little more time in the museum and in the American cemetery would have been nice maybe in lieu of the cider orchard stop but all in all I highly recommend this tour and especially John, if you can request him, you will have a very enjoyable and learning experience.

John Price was my tour guide and I really enjoyed the tour because you can tell how passionate he is about subject matter. As someone such as myself who has taken World War 2 History classes and read/watched multiple forms of media on world war 2 and world history, I still came away with some new factoids and other things that I didn’t even know! I also appreciated how thorough he was at the sites. The only drawback I had (and it wasn’t against the guide) was that I wish we had a couple more minutes at the sites, even 5 more minutes, specifically the museum at the beginning and the cemetery at the end. My wife and I had just enough time to speed through both and get the gist of everything, but wished we had a few more minutes to slow it down a little bit to process. Besides that, great tour and would definitely recommend to others

Highly recommend this day trip from Paris. It starts quite early in the morning, but you get a chance to nap on the bus and get some coffee at the rest stop before the storytelling begins. Our guide, John, was very knowledgeable about WW1 and WW2 history and made sure that everyone was comfortable (adequate bathroom breaks) throughout the whole day. One of the best parts was John drawing a map in the sand in Utah Beach and describing the events that occurred on d-day and the following weeks. Standing there, where it happened, looking up and down the coast - it all comes to life. All of the stops were great. Btw, we didn’t get it, but we thought the fish lunch option looked the tastiest!

John Price is our guide, I took my children (12, 18 and 22) for a three-week trip in Europe and this is one of the most personable, informative and entertaining experiences we had. John is definitely knowledgeable about history, and he was passionate to share valuable history events in a story telling format that is easy to understand and entertaining. We learned about World Wars, history of France, Germany and Normandy, he made the ride more enjoyable and made our purpose at Normandy more memorable.
I know from many tour experiences,John has done above and beyond what’s required as a guide, we appreciated him so much, this excursion with John at Normandy marks an exclamation mark for our trip in Paris.

The Normamdy trip with our tour guide John was exceptional. John was incredibly knowledgeable and it was evident that he loves the topic and does his research. His delivery was engaging while he also offered additional study, if interested, with book suggestions and movies to consider to further our knowledge on World War II. Being on the beach, descending into the bunkers, and walking through the cemetery submerged us into the experience of Normandy. Cider tasting was a lovely addition to the day! We saw a lot, but we felt we could have used more time at the museums, although we understand time is tight. Lunch was another plus and we fully enjoyed the meal and sitting with new friends. Seeing the French countryside was another. We would recommend this tour. Thank you. John.

The tour and overall experience was terrific! Our guides, Minnie and John were a great team. Minnie kept us organized and on time while John shared the history and stories. He had a tremendous amount of detail but also made it interesting and kept us all engaged. He truly was an expert on D Day but also had many historical details and stories that complemented D Day and provided very interesting details. He also did a good job engaging with the group making it fun.

The cider tasting was also an interesting addition to the trip and provided additional details on the region. It tasted good too.

I highly recommend Minnie and John if you want interesting stories, details and perspectives as well as being on time and running smoothly.

The trip was not too far of a distance from Paris, yet enough to allow us to view and appreciate the natural beauty of this region of France. My anticipation of the history and epic occurrences of D-Day didn’t come close to the emotional feelings I experienced when I actually arrived. Lunch was excellent as well as the french farm and liquor tasting opportunity. The American Cemetery at Normandy was humbling, so peaceful and thought-inspiring……heaven-like. John, our guide, was incredible. A wonderful blend of intellect, knowledge and humor. His conversation was natural and spontaneous. He exuded a genuine interest in assuring that our day was entertaining, and one that would exceed our expectations. A very skilled and poised tour guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris, and to make a special request for John as the guide……Jeff Meehan from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

The whole experience to Normandy was fantastic. We enjoyed the museum at Omaha Beach . We also enjoyed the sumptuous lunch in the small seaside French town. The cider tasting was an unexpected treat and thoroughly enjoyed the tasting. The turrets at Omaha beach was surreal. Last the American Cemetery and the playing of Taps was moving.

John, our guide was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional and kept the whole group actively involved and engaged. His stories and in depth factual accounts made the whole day memorable and definitely a highlight of our 9 day trip to Paris. We intend to recommend this excursion to all our ‘well-traveled’ friends and family.

My fiancé and I took the Normandy D-Day trip with John. Our experience was excellent. John was very knowledgeable (we got both WWII history and the history of France), friendly, and made sure that our time at each site was maximized. In fact, we ran into a traffic jam that required a 1 hour detour on the way to Normandy. Without missing a beat, John arranged for the cider for the cider tasting to be delivered to our lunch spot so as to ensure that we got back to Paris on time. If you’re a person who wants to spend hours at each site, this tour is not for you. But, if you want to see what Normandy has to offer and get some great information with a knowledgable tour guide, we highly recommend.
