What to Expect
The Battle of Normandy and the Allied landings of D-Day were two of the most memorable events of World War II, when American forces helped liberate France from German occupation. During this reflective and in-depth historical tour, retrace the steps of American soldiers and revisit the beachfronts where the famous campaigns took place. Begin with a hotel pickup from Bayeux, where you settle into your private transport and prepare for a moving journey to the days of high-stakes battle along the Norman coast, as Americans joined the Allied forces in the fight for France’s freedom. Tours are fully customizable, with multiple itineraries available. Or, you can opt to personalize your excursion with a tailor-made list of sightseeing stops. You can choose to pay your respects at classic landmarks, such as Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Brecourt Manor, and the Normandy American Cemetery, or meet with civilian survivors of the landings. All tours include a traditional lunch at a local restaurant.
