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 uses 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.

Our tour guide for the Normandy trip was Guillaume. He had a great personality and had so many stories he shared with the group. It's a long day, but you are immersed in the day and the experience. We visited several sites and always had ample time to explore a bit on our own.

Our small group Normandy tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept our group of 6 (4 children ranging from ages 11 - 20) interested in all the sites. We loved seeing all the small French towns along the way too.
