Full description

Enjoy a full-day trip from Paris to the D-Day Beaches in Normandy in the company of an official guide, who will bring these historic sites to life. Learn about the military operation, and visit Pointe du Hoc, the American Cemetery, Omaha Beach, Arromanches, and Juno Beach. Board the luxury air-conditioned coach in central Paris and get set to enjoy a unique day in Normandy. Relax and admire the beautiful landscapes of the French countryside. Your first stop will be at Pointe du Hoc, overlooking the hundred-foot-high cliffs between Utah and Omaha Beaches. Stormed by the American Rangers on 6 June, it was one of the key German fortified sites along the Normandy coast and was extensively equipped, at that time, with heavy artillery. Visit the well-known American Cemetery at Saint Laurent, just above Omaha Beach. Explore this 170-acre site that features 9,387 white marble headstones lined up perfectly across the grass, a memorial, a chapel, and the Garden of the Missing. Follow a small trail down to Omaha Beach, too.

The next stop is in Arromanches, a historic town known for its artificial port that was built to assist the Normandy landings. On D-Day, the harbor saw the unloading of almost 10,000 tons of equipment. You can still make out the floating reinforced concrete Phoenix constructions in the water.

Before returning to Paris, make a short stop near sandy Juno Beach and its cemetery, one of the key D-Day landing beaches for Canadian troops on June 6, 1944.

Your guided tour will include an opportunity to see everyday objects from life under occupation, maps, and models of military vehicles, as well as film screenings recreating the emotions of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

In general, the tour was quite good and interesting, the guide very attentive. They changed our departure location on very short notice and luckily I was able to find out in time as I had a lot of problems with the internet connection, otherwise we might have missed the tour.

Great tour with a wonderful and knowledgable guide. The day is very long but well worth it if you don't have your own transportation to get to the Normandy area. The bus was comfortable, and I'm assuming for safety reasons, they switched drivers half way through the trip, loved this! Thank you for a wonderful day and the education to boot!!

While the tour shows some amazing sites, the day is very rushed with little time at significant sites, and long stretches of driving in between. While the tour guides are great on the bus, there is little insight given once at the sites; and the “dinner” stop on the way home is a 30 minute break at a gas station.
