Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Normandy is a history-filled region in France located on the Atlantic coast. It is famous throughout the world as the site of key WWII battles, like the infamous D-Day landings of 1944. During this personalized private tour from Bayeux, you’ll revisit the days of French resistance, German occupation, and American support with stops at Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American cemetery.
What to Expect
Begin your tour of the history-filled region of Normandy with pickup in Bayeux in an air-conditioned minivan. Your guide will be on hand to give you key facts and historical background, so you can get the most from your visits.
During this intimate guided historical tour you revisit the triumphant wins and heavy losses of the war’s most memorable campaigns. You travel to Utah Beach, where the US Fourth Infantry Division made its assault, before making your way to the tiny nearby town of Sainte-Mère-Église, site of the American paratrooper landing on D-Day.
At Point du Hoc, your guide explains how Americans scaled the cliffside, bringing to life the final days of battle. After your in-depth guided visits, enjoy free time to explore the American cemetery on your own, where you can look for graves and spend time in the visitor’s center before heading back to Bayeux for drop-off.

Excellent full day tour with children

We spent the day with Olivier visiting the American beaches and cemetery. He did an excellent job engaging both the adults and our two kids, 9 & 12, with facts and stories. Highly recommend for families.

Romin, our guide, was prompt upon pickup and kept small group (7 of us) apace at each stop and site, without feeling hurried at any of them. Although several of the museum sites are so well done that you could spend a full day at...More

Every American should make the effort to come here.

Our guide Olivier, having been born in a near-by sea side town knew the area well. He took down back roads that others miss. He added humor, pop quizzes and a passion for history that isn't taught in American schools. After 7-8 hours you are...More

I don't know about other tour groups, but it was a small spot across from Utah Beach named after Theodore Roosevelt, Jr (which was on top of a former command post). The prix fixe lunch was good, and the service was faster... More
