Your drive through the picturesque Normandy countryside takes you to the Caen Memorial, devoted to illustrations and films about the Second World War and the Normandy landings of June 1944.

After lunch at the Memorial, visit the Pointe du Hoc, a German defense position that was heroically taken by US soldiers during World War II. Continue to the American cemetery of Saint-Laurent, the final resting place of almost 10,000 soldiers.

We were guided by Amaury, who knew his stuff and told the story well. Highly recommended.

Trip was very informative and we were well taken care of. The only suggestion I have is to allow the less mobile people sit in the lower part of the bus.

The overall experience was terrific. Everything went smoothly and we were well take care of. The exhibits were well done though there was not enough time to see as much as we would have liked. Highly recommend for others.

This tour was exceptional. I took my brother and his girlfriend and we all had a great time. The guide is very informative but also allows for you to rest some since the tour starts so early. Each sight is well worth it. Very well organized and enjoyable! Thank you!!

We truly enjoyed the tour, including the bus ride and of course, our tour guide. She was awesome! We wished we had had more time at each of the stops, but understand that we had just one day to get it all in.
