Travel back in time on a historical 12-tour of World War II landing sites, with optional hotel pickup. Departing from Paris, your driver will guide your group to the Beach of Normandy, where you'll see The Pointe du Hoc, a promontory that was a German fortification strong point until U.S. army members invaded on June 6, 1944. You'll visit the American Cemetery on a bluff above Omaha Beach, and explore other significant locations such as Mulberry Harbour — built specifically to speed the unloading process of Allied troops — and the Caen Peace Memorial. The tour also includes return transport to Paris.

Why Travelers Choose This Tour
Small group sizes on this D-Day tour are ideal for those who want to ask lots of questions.
Wonderful day from beginning to end - Our guide Rodolphe was entertaining and knowledgeable taking us to all the must see destinations for a history lover - We had just enough time at each location to nor feel rushed and the restaurant we ate at for lunch was great (even had a kids menu for my daughter) . Our family of 3 was joined by one other traveler on the tour and the small group setting was amazing- I would highly recommend this tour
This was an excellent event. Nicholas, our guide, was excellent and gave a balanced overview of the events leading up to D-Day......full of useful and interesting information. It was a long, full day, 6:30 am ‘til 7:00 pm but well worth it. I would recommend it for families with children old enough to understand the events leading up to D-Day. Very sobering.
Small-Group Normandy D-Day Battlefields and Landing Beaches Day Trip from Paris

Richard was very knowledgeable about the subject, answered all of the questions we had and was very friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend him as a guide. We had a great experience with him as our guide.
Max is an excellent guide and very personable. He picked us up at our hotel and drove to Normandy. Following the activities of the 75th Anniversary, there were still flowers and wreaths from various dignitaries in evidence. Seeing the beaches and Point du Hoc is a very sobering experience. Normandy area is beautiful. Max took us to a local restaurant for lunch (try the local cider). We returned to our local Paris hotel about 7 pm.
Thank you very much for telling us about your tour to Normandy with Max. We are glad you enjoyed your day expecially on this very special 75th Anniversary year of the landing. It's great you also had time to taste some Normand Cider at lunch break. Regards, Arnaud
The trip was great our guide was outstanding I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Paris who wants to experience what the troops went through the D-Day magic overlord period our guide was terrific his name was Nicholas the bed was very comfortable the staffs were well planned and no one's venue restaurant was terrific!
The trip was well organized and didn’t feel like we were rushed through everything. Very emotional and thought provoking to see the fortifications and landscaping soldiers had to overcome to free Europe from the evil that gripped it for several years. Will recommend this for anyone wanting to see for fast day trip. Of course more time is always needed to see everything. Also don’t forget the rich culture of the northern France reign as well that needs to be visited on its own.
Great recommend and worth time and money!
