What You Can Expect

Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Beaches Day Trip

American War Cemetery, Normandy

Your Normandy day trip from Paris begins with the 3- to 4-hour drive out of the city to France’s northwest coast. Enjoy pretty views of the French countryside, and stop at the Caen Memorial, dedicated to films and illustrations about World War II and the D-Day landings of June 1944.

Enjoy lunch here before heading to Pointe du Hoc, a German defense site that was captured by American soldiers, and then visit the American Cemetery and Memorial near Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, the final resting place of nearly 10,000 members of the US military. The cemetery overlooks Omaha Beach, where you have free time to walk along the shore, take in the ocean views and reflect on the bloody events that seem a world away from this now-tranquil location. You can also check out the Visitor Centre, home to poignant exhibits that depict the stories and operations of the American soldiers.

Your next destinations are Juno Beach to see the Canadian Memorial and Arromanches, where you can check out remnants of the artificial landing harbor built by the Allies. Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Paris.

Excellent tour guide and driver. Day trip out of Paris. First stop was the Caen WW II museum about 2.5 hours out of Paris. Nice museum. Amazing history in the not too distant past. First stop after the museum were Omaha Beach and Point du Hoc. Looking out the bunker and down the sheer cliff you could almost sense the soldiers coming ashore. Also had stops at Juno and Gold Beaches and the Canadian memorial at Juno. Final stop was the American Cemetery. A beautiful tribute to the men that gave their lives.

Tour was excellent. I did the 8 person tour and recommend this over the larger tour even though more expensive. The guide was highly knowledgeable. It seemed a little rushed in at the various sites in 1 day--this is probably a 2 day trip if you really want to spend some time.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Our tour was wonderful. Everything went very well, beginning with hotel pick up.
Our tour guide, Carlos, was excellent. Very knowledgeable and helpful. It could not have been easier or more pleasant.

Great Tour. The trip from Paris was beautiful. Our guide was wonderful, and very informative. Visiting the various beaches and American cemetery was powerful. I would recommend this tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This is well worth the trip. Every aspect of this tour exceeded my expectations. our tour guide, Vincent, was very thorough, gave us lots of information without feeling like a lecture. There was plenty of time for everything. Our group was a total of 6 guests so it was easier and more pleasant going around. Lunch was phenomenal. Even the drive from Paris was great as it gave us time to rest.

Highly recommended. Physically standing on the locations I had only previously read about, and imagining these brave young men and what they through about was unbelievably moving.

Our guide was a lovely women who kept us engaged, and went above and beyond, considering the 14 hour duration. You can tell the points were they can just send you off on your own and she didn't, and was very accommodating with questions and explanations.

The stops did feel a bit rushed, but not much can you do about that when your traveling that distance in one day. If you can't devote a few days to the area, this is an excellent option.
