Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

American War Cemetery, Normandy

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

I was completely satisfied with the tour and all of the extras that I was able to set up from my living room at home. I purchased the extra service of the taxi from my hotel and also the return. The taxi arrived at 6:00 am to pick me up and I arrived in plenty of time at the bus depot to take care of all the ticket and paperwork. The trip was packed with information and our guide, Isabell was very knowledgeable and made history alive. At the end of a very long day we arrived back at the Paris bus depot and I was glad to have a return taxi to drive me back to my hotel. Everything was included and I was enjoyed the ample lunch along with a bottle of wine. Just Great!

EXCELLENT tour guide. Very informed and keep a group of 33 with multiple stops over 14 hours well in step! LONG day to/from Paris, but well worth it.

We really enjoyed the tour being able to see all the beaches, the Memorial site, and the Museum. Our guide was very informative and lunch at a farm house was excellent. The tour provided an opportunity to explore the beaches and spend enough time at the Normandy Memorial.
