Guided tours Normandy beaches

We plan to be in Normandy in May 2012. Can anyone recommend a tour company
for a landing tour of the Normandy beaches?I would also like to visit the American cemetary. I assume that we will stay in Bayeux. I do not have the exact dates yet.

We had an excellent full day with Francois (and also stayed at his B&B) a couple of years ago. Highly recommend this very personalised trip.

I had a great tour with Dale Booth with the now defunct Battlebus.

Dale now has is own company:

And, a former co-owner of Battlebus, Paul Woodadge, has his own company:

We stayed at the Hotel Churchill last March in Bayeux and took a tour with Overlord Tours. We enjoyed the whole experience immensely.

Another enthusiastic reco for Dale Booth; we also had a super tour with him when he was with Battlebus.

Ditto the Dale Booth recommendation. We toured with him and had a fabulous tour. He did a great job of scheduling the day so we saw as much as possible w/o being rushed. He also tells stories of individual soldiers which helped us understand the history so much better. We toured with our sons(15 and 12 at the time) and it was the highlight of our trip.

I went to the museum at Caen (Caen Memorial) and took a tour from there after visiting the museum, watching the movies, etc. The tour was a half day and was terrific!
