Overview
Take a 12-hour day trip from Paris to Normandy to visit the D-Day landing beaches, where the end of World War II began at sites such as Omaha Beach. You'll see German bunkers, the Operation Overlord Museum, and Pointe du Hoc, plus visit the Normandy American Cemetery, where 10,000 white crosses stand in perfect rows next to the waters of the English Channel. This tour is limited to eight people to provide a small-group experience with a guide.
Highlights
  • Cover key WWII D-Day landing sites in a day from Paris
  • Travel with ease to Omaha Beach, the American Cemetery, and other sights
  • Discover stories, facts, military maps, and plans you might otherwise miss
  • Smooth minivan travel and group limited to eight let you focus on the sites
What to Expect
Your tour begins in central Paris, where you board an air-conditioned minivan destined for Normandy. As you travel, your guide tells of the bravery and strategies behind the WWII D-Day landings. Hear soldiers’ personal stories, and learn how the Allied June 1944 campaign changed the course of the war. Your guide will use military maps and photos to provide a detailed picture of the operation, and show the difference between what was planned and what happened. Visit the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial before continuing to the Overlord Museum to view its exhibitions on the planning and execution of the landings. Next, head for Omaha Beach, where US and British troops landed, and then visit one of the defensive German bunkers to discover how the Allies managed to neutralize them. After a tasting of Normandy apple cider, your tour concludes at the departure point in Paris.

Perfect way to see Normandy. This was the highlight of my Paris trip over the summer. My guide’s name is Tej and he did a wonderful job. He kept us on schedule, but gave plenty of time to take in the sights. Wonderful experience.

I don't think I am the best person to answer your question. Since I am unfamiliar with your disability, I would contact the tour company directly. There were wonderful.

We stopped for lunch at a nice little place. Food and service were good, and each of us paid for our meal. Lunch was a small part of an excellent day of touring Normandy beaches, the American cemetery, and cider tasting.
