What You Can Expect

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. You will also have free time at Omaha Beach to reflect on the site's moving history and visit the Omaha Beach Visitor Center, which describes the American soldiers' operations on the famous beach in June 1944.

Before returning to Paris, stop at the Canadian Memorial at Juno beach and Arromanches to see the remains of the artificial landing harbor that was built by the Allies in less than 15 days.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This tour was nothing short of amazing. You cover so much in one day but it is not too much. We actually took our children ages 4 and 2 and even they did very well with the length of the bus ride. I would recommend this to anyone who goes to Paris.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

Took a long day trip from Paris (14 hours) to the Caen military museum, Omaha Beach, American Cemetery, Pointe du Hoc and Juno Beach with Viator. First let me say that if you have more time I would take a 1-2 day tour from Bayeux. You will get a much more in depth experience. However, if you headquartered in Paris for a short time only, then a long one day, highlights only tour, will work for you. Viator had a deluxe bus for fifty. The two onboard guides were knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting facts with no political agenda. 2 hours with lunch at museum. 1 hour and Pointe du Hoc. 1+ hours at the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach (plenty of time to walk down to the sand.......awesome experience). 45 minutes at Juno Beach. Left Paris at 7:00 arrived back just after 9. Again, this should be considered a highlight only tour. I am a "very amateur" history buff, but I learned some things about the battle from this short tour that I never knew. Had a slight overpayment issue with the company that was resolved within 48 hours with a credit to my card Amex account. Very reputable company. RECOMMEND
