Embark on a small group excursion (maximum 15 participants) from Paris to the emblematic sites of the Normandy landing, accompanied by a guide-interpreter.
On June 6, 1944, called "D Day", the Allies opened a new front in Europe against the troops of the Third Reich during the Second World War. It was the largest military operation in history and marked the beginning of the Battle of Normandy that would lead to the end of World War II. More than 150,000 American, British and Canadian soldiers and many other nationalities landed by sea and air on different beaches of Normandy (Utah Beach, Omaha Beach...), as well as at Pointe du Hoc.
Departure at 7:00 am from the Pullman Hotel in Paris for a 3-hour trip to the landing beaches.

The first step of the visit will be on the beaches of Omaha Beach (also called "The Beach of blood"). Stormed by the American Rangers on June 6th, it is one of the strong points of the German fortifications on the Normandy coast, equipped at the time with a large number of heavy artillery pieces. It was the beach where the Allies lost the most troops during the landing.

It is located below the 70-hectare Colleville Cemetery, which you will visit next. The famous St. Lawrence American Military Cemetery is home to 9387 white marble headstones, the memorial, a chapel and the garden of the missing. It now honors American soldiers who died in the Battle of Normandy during World War II and is one of 25 permanent U.S. burial sites overseas.

Then you will visit Arromanches, a historic site known for its artificial harbor that was installed as part of the Normandy landings. It allowed the unloading of 9000 tons of material on D-Day. Today, floating reinforced concrete caissons called "Phoenix" are still visible.

Free lunch and free visit of the Cinema 360 museum where you can observe the remains of one of the two artificial harbors built by the Allies.

Then you will visit Juno beach at Courseulles-sur-mer, beaches assigned to the Canadian troops.

Return to the Pullman Hotel at 6:30 pm.

We did this tour on Saturday and it is a great tour. We only had 6 people in our group and had a great time. Our guide, Claude, was great. The lunch was amazing in this cute cottage type manor. I highly recommend this tour. It was worth the extra money.

One of the best day tours I’ve ever taken. Our tour guide Eliza was fantastic! Great driving, information and rapport. The lunch was fantastic and the sites were well selected. I will definitely book more Paris City tours in the future.

Because of the nature of a day tour to Normandy and the immense amount of information, Frederick was a fantastic tour guide and clearly knew the important D-Day details to relay to our small group of five. Lunch at the 16th century restaurant was delicious. Definitely a tour to book!
