Descriptions

Following a 9am pickup at your accommodation or the local train station in Bayeux, take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan and head onward to the Normandy beaches — where so much of the violent fighting of WWII took place.

First, visit the port at Arromanches — built by the British to organize the landing of the Allied troops in June 1944. Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (own expense) and admire sweeping views over the beach.

Visit the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer with your private guide and learn of the many Allied soldiers who laid down their lives in battle. Next, head to Longues-sur-Mer to see the batteries the Germans used to protect the coast from the Allies.

During your 8-hour tour, travel to top sites of WWII interest including the Pointe du Hoc and Sainte-Mère-Église. Along the way, learn of the now infamous battles that took place here between the German and Allied forces.

When your tour comes to an end, return in comfort to your hotel or the train station in Bayeux at approximately 6pm.
