Honfleur Omaha Beach Excursion Reviews

History-lovers with cruise stops in Honfleur might skip the typical Paris excursion in favor of a visit to Omaha Beach, which played a crucial role in the D-Day invasions during World War II. See abandoned German bunkers and visit the museum that documents the invasion.
Great trip !

15 minutes at the beach was not long enough.
Sail Date: May 2016
15 minutes at the beach was not long enough. I would have liked more time to walk the beach and reflect. I would have preferred much more time on these beaches. Maybe an option to spend more than just one day there.

Visiting the D day beaches was a moving experience. Our guide was wonderful. Crystal had five buses for this excursion, and we heard that other guides were not as good. Lunch was not good. The restaurant was beautiful, but they dumped meat, ham, and salmon one plate for each person.It would have been far better to give people a choice, I have a fish allergy. Additionally,there were people who were vegettarians ,and kosher. One man at our table just ate bread. Read Less
