Which tour of Normandy, Cityrama or Parisvision?

I want to take a daytrip from Paris to Normandy but not sure which company/tour would be better, Cityrama or ParisVision? Or another? A guided tour from the city is how we will be most comfortable.

Both are about 14hours and go to Pont du Hoc, American cemetery, Arromanches and landing beaches.

Any comments or advice appreciated.

Thank you for your time and have a great weekend!

Saw their buses when we were there. I don't imagine there is much difference at all.

Ditto. The tours are very similar, from what I can see in the brochures.

We were in Paris last month. We did a daytrip from Paris to Normandy with www.paris-trip.com. It was the highlight of our two week trip. Our driver was Lionel and he was excellent! He has travelled all over the world and was extremely knowledgable in French history and current politics. His own family story is quite interesting.

He kept us entertained and informed the entire trip, despite the long drive.

The tour is 160€ per person. The price does include admission to the Caen Peace Memorial, everything else was free). He picked us up right at our apt. There are a maximum of 8 people on the tour.

We saw Ponte de Hoc (Omaha Beach), the new and old memorials, the American Cemetery, Arromanches, and the Caen Peace Memorial. He took us to an incredible lunch at Arromanches with views of the mulberries and the best oysters we have ever had.

Just wanted to note, that tour price did not include lunch.
