    2. Normandy D-Day All Day Tour by Minibus from Paris

    Meet your experienced driver-guide at your Paris hotel for a journey through the history of World War II. Travel to the Beach of Normandy aboard a deluxe air-conditioned minibus. First, visit Pointe du Hoc, one of the strong points of the German fortifications, taken by storm on the morning of June 6, 1944. Then, see Batterie de Longues, the only German gun battery to keep its guns intact. Overlooking Omaha Beach, stop at the American Cemetery, which contains over 9,000 white crosses perfectly aligned on 170 acres. A chapel and memorial add the finishing touches to this moving scene.

    We had the most amazing time on our tour. We were lucky to have the tour to ourselves + 1 other couple. It was set out beautiful and the scenes were breathtaking and more then we could ever have imagined.

    Highly recommend this tour! We had a small group of 7 and visited many important sites for Canadians during the war. Our guide Olivia was knowledgeable and allowed just the right amount of time for us to spend exploring the museums.

What people are saying about Caen

Excellent full day tour with Nicolas! We had 8 of us in the van - very comfortable set-up and spacious vehicle. The drive took about 3 hours each way and Nicolas was great in providing relevant information as we got closer to the sites (and letting us all sleep in the car for the early morning / late afternoon). The tour was very well planned starting with point du hoc, omaha beach, american cemetery. The provided lunch at the farm house was so delicious in a wonderful environment. The visit to Arromanches after lunch was also very interesting. I was glad the tour ended at about 6:30pm in Paris since the day was pretty long. I think the semi-private vans are able to travel faster than the large buses (though these tours are cheaper) so this was a huge plus, also the vans are able to travel to areas where the buses cannot easily go. I really appreciated Nicolas driving, knowledge, and attention to detail. He is an EXCELLENT guide! Thank you!
