I found the Best of Northern France:Paris and Normandy Tour an excellent way of learning about Parisian history and culture. Visiting the actual site of where the invasion began, the logistics involved in carrying out the mission and the cost of human sacrifices that were made will give you a new perspective on what was involved.

This was a wonderful trip. I especially enjoyed visiting the beautiful churches in Paris, Rouen and Honfleur and listening to Ange Laporte's superb narrative. The hotels and meals were excellent.

Recently returned from this trip and still recovering from jet lag, I also want to echo what a great experience this was. Seeing Normandy and having an in depth presentation of DDay was my highlight, but I also want to compliment our guide Ange Laporte on a job well done. His extensive knowledge in a number of topics and sense of humor were very much appreciated. There is a lot of walking on cobblestones on this trip so it's best to be in good shape.

This was a delightful experience. Every bit of it was interesting to me. Personal highlights included visiting the Sunday market in Paris, Mont St. Michel, and Monet's gardens in Giverny.

If seeing Normandy and Omaha Beach is one of your travel goals, the Road Scholar experience cannot be matched.

Fabulous trip with a wonderful itinerary! The D-Day beaches were definitely a highlight including the visit to the American Cemetery. But all aspects of the trip were great including Mont St. Michel and the various Paris excursions. Robert Andre Harvey was a great leader--informative and a great sense of humor. Included meals were terrific. People on the trip were great too. Can't think of anything I would change on this trip!

The whole trip was amazing. Our group leader, Robert Andre Harvey, was wonderful. All the cities, Paris, Giverny, Roeun, Bayeaux, Honfleur, Versailles held something of interest. I was very impressed with Jean Philippe, our guide through Normandy and Omaha Beach. He obviously cares so much about the history of D-Day and we were greatful he imparted so much of his knowledge to us. I was honored, as a veteran, to participate in a wreath laying ceremony at the Normandy American Cemetery. Everything about this trip is great!!

Don't know if you want to share this, but I have to share my wonderful story. We stayed in the churchill Hotel, which was full of WWII memoribilia and photos. I loved it as that is mostly why we chose this trip to see Normandy and WWII things. As walking around looking at the pictures on the wall I got to the 2nd floor and lo and behold there on the wall in a picture frame was a picture of my father from WWII. I can't tell you what an emotional and overwhelming experience that was. I mean what are the chances of that happening. I will never forget that and always treasurer that. My husband took a picture of me by his picture.
