Enjoy a full day excursion from Paris to the D-Day Beaches in Normandy in the company of an official guide, who will bring these historic sites to life. 

On June 6, 1944, known as D-Day, the Allies opened a new European front against the troops of the Third Reich during the Second World War. It was the largest military operation in history, which marked the beginning of the Battle of Normandy and would lead to the end of the Second World War. More than 150,000 soldiers from America, Britain, Canada and many other nations landed by sea and air on a number of beaches along the Normandy coastline (Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Juno Beach, etc.) and at the steep cliffs at Pointe du Hoc. 

Leave our agency in Central Paris at 7 am for a unique day in Normandy. Relax on the luxury air-conditioned coach journey and admire the beautiful landscapes of the Normandy countryside as you reach the Caen Memorial Museum at around 10:15 am.

The Caen Memorial Museum, also known as the Peace Museum, tells the story of the various stages of the Second World War, in particular the Battle of Normandy and the advance of the Allied forces across France. You will have the chance to see everyday objects from life under occupation, maps, and models of military vehicles, as well as film screenings that recreate the emotions of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

In the afternoon, your tour will continue to several of the iconic landmarks that played a part in the landings.

Your first stop will be at the Pointe du Hoc, overlooking the hundred-foot-high cliffs between Utah and Omaha beaches. Stormed by the American Rangers on June 6, it was one of the key German fortified sites along the Normandy coast and was equipped, at that time, with extensive heavy artillery. 

You will then visit the famous American Cemetery at Saint Laurent, located just above Omaha Beach, near the town of Colleville-sur-Mer. This 170-acre site is home to 9,387 white marble headstones, lined up perfectly across the grass, a memorial, a chapel, and the Garden of the Missing. It pays tribute to the American soldiers that died during the Battle of Normandy and is one of 25 permanent burial sites in the United States and abroad. A small trail leads down the hill to Omaha Beach, giving you the opportunity to walk across the sand. You will have one hour to explore the site.

Following this visit, you will stop at Arromanches, a historic town known for its artificial port, which was built to assist the Normandy landings. On D-Day, the harbour saw the unloading of almost 10,000 tons of equipment. You can still make out the floating reinforced concrete "Phoenix" constructions in the water. 

Otherwise, you will make a short photo-stop near the sandy Juno Beach and its cemetery, one of the key D-Day landing beaches for Canadian troops on June 6, 1944.

Return to Paris scheduled for approximately 9 pm.

We can’t change the fact that it is a long drive from Paris to Normandy and that there is not enough time to soak up all the history at the sites. But it all you have time for, the you get an overview and know that you must return someday. I requested and paid for a small group tour and got 40 people on a large bus. Our guide was very nice; sweet, efficient, and very knowledgeable. However, her voice was so soft and quiet and her French accent so strong that it was very difficult to follow all she said. I felt that she was attempting to provide us with wonderful details, but I missed them. The lunch was good and served very efficiently so we did not waste time

You do not have a lot of time at each spot but it was the right amount of time for us. If you want an in-depth look at all the beaches and museums, then this is not the tour for you. However, we only wanted to spend the day in Normandy so we selected this tour. We were able to see all the highlights within a reasonable timeframe. The tour guides did not talk much about the spots while we were there as they let you explore on your own at your pace which we liked. If you only want to spend the day and see major spots, then select this tour.

The tour is meant to be a guided tour, I don’t call someone sitting on the bus talking as you drive and pointing you in the direction to where you have to go a guided tour especially for the price! Lunch was average and you could just get a nice sandwich and be on your way.
