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.

Excellent tour package. VIsits to sites were not rushed nor sparse. Guide knew her info and was more than willing to talk about it Bus speaker system was not great. Although it was high tide you could imagine the landing forces coming ashore. Roads used gave good indication of what the landscape was like.

So moving , so important in our history . Perfect amount of time spent at every location . Lunch was wonderful in a 13th century castle . The guide was vey knowledgable and nice . The only complaint was that our friends who planned this whole thing were not on the pick up list and Viator did nothing to get them to see Normandy . Left a bitter taste.

Our guide Harvey was a BLAST! He was very knowledgeable and took us to places a large bus tour could not go. We had an amazing lunch the BEST meal during our entire stay in Paris. He walked us through bunkers and told us history like a text book. This man is smart, funny and a little bit crazy. He explained how to collect sand and water in an empty bottle and pay respect to those that lost their lives on the shores and during the battles and war. Amazing to see the Gold sand glitter. We took a small group and had only 2 other couples in our private van. The price we paid was PRICELESS and worth every penny. Indulge and enjoy you won't be disappointed! If you speak a foreign language ask for Harvey he speaks 7 yes I said 7 different languages fluently.

This is a great way to cover a lot of history in a short time. Many will say there is not enough time, but the tour, the museum visit , and the drive through the srea is a great experience for we first timers.It's a long day, but well worth it. You learned about it, saw films and documentaries, and now you are there!.

The Omaha Beach museum and tour, Pont du Hoc landing site with pillbox and bunkers were amazing to see. The American war dead cemetery was not to be missed. A chance to walk on the Beach at the Gold Landing site was very special.The trip was well organized with appropriate time allotted at each stop. It was a bonus to see the French countryside of Normandy as we were touring. Our guide was very knowledgeable.
