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.

Thank you for your lovely words about our tour to the Normandy beaches.
We are glad that you thought our tour was very well organised.
We look forward to seeing you again.
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.

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.
