Step back in time to June 1944 with a visit to Normandy's main landing beaches. Set out on a guided tour from Paris to visit these legendary sites including Omaha Beach and Colleville American Cemetery, where the bodies of American soldiers who lost their lives on D-Day and at the Battle of Normandy reside. Afterward, spend some time exploring the medieval town of Bayeux, one of the few places in France's Calvados department to remain mostly intact following WWII.

Very good tour.
This was an incredible, emotional historical trip!
Our guide was very good, and you could tell he liked the subject.
Definitely worth the 12 hours. So impressive. All of our guides have been excellent.
Our guide, Faybien, was the best, and very knowledgeable. My only complaint was there were nine of us in a mini van. I sat in the middle of the front seat with the gear shift. It was too long to travel that way.

My family enjoyed this daytrip and it was great to expose/teach/share this piece of history to/with our kids. Our guide was difficult to understand at times his first language was Spanish but he was very nice. Our luxury tour bus was very comfortable and made the drive enjoyable. The lunch we had at a seaside restaurant in Arromanches was a highlight of the day. My only complaint is there was not enough time to see the US War Memorial/Cemetery properly and it felt very rushed. The Normandy countryside is beautiful and it was time well spent. We would recommend this day trip to others.
Dmitri was a great guide, funny and knowledgable. Of course, the sites and history of Normandy and the beaches were not disappointing. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because the van we rode in was very cramped and uncomfortable. Otherwise, it was a tremendous experience we would recommend to everyone!

The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The day moved along well and we saw everything that we wanted. The problem was the transportation. The van used by French Tourism was small! It was not comfortable for the 3 hour ride. Disappointed in that.
Guide should have given more information regarding the landing strategies.
