Revisit the site of the Battle of Normandy (1944) and learn of the events of World War II. Visit the D-Day landing beaches, which was the site of the largest military operation in history.

Normandy has many memorials of World War II like the Pegasus Bridge, captured by British gliders from Nazi control. The D-Day landing beaches of Juno, Gold and Omaha once saw fierce fighting between the Allied Forces and Nazis in the historic Battle of Normandy and memorials are erected in honour of those who lost their lives.

The large number of graves in the American Military Cemetery stands testimony to the killings in the Second World War and has a pond and chapel for silent reflections. The ground is still pockmarked with bomb craters in certain regions and ruins of German fortifications and bunkers are not hard to find.

Take a trip to the D-Day landing beaches of Normandy and recount the events of World War II.

You will be travel in an air-conditioned motor coach to Normandy.

Journey across the superb Normandy countryside where you start with a moving visit to the Caen Memorial. While dedicated to peace, the memorial devotes itself to illustrations and films about World War II and the Normandy landings of June 1944.

Break for lunch (drinks included) at the Memorial.

In the afternoon, visit the Pointe du Hoc. The site of one of the major assaults by allied forces is pockmarked with bomb craters and is now a memorial to the fallen soldiers. Continue to the American Military Cemetery in Saint Laurent in Colleville and pay homage to the 9,386 soldiers who lost their lives in World War II.

Enjoy a 1-hour walk on Omaha Beach, below the cemetery, or take a peek inside the recently-built Visitors Center and learn more about the fierce Battle of Normandy and the events of World War II.

A bus ride along the coast takes you to Arromanches and the ruins of the artificial port built by the allies in less than 15 days.

Return to Paris by coach, arriving at original departure point at around 9:00pm.

Kathleen F Laborde

A tour guide can make or break a day trip like this, and we hit the jackpot with Joelle. The tour was very well organized. We visited a number of sites and Joelle was very clear about the time allotted for each stop which made it possible for us to make the most of what the site had to offer. She was extremely knowledgeable about the geography of the region and the intricate history of the war and the invasion, providing a running commentary as we drove through the region. There was enough background for the younger members of our party to put the invasion in context, and enough detail for those more familiar with the invasion to broaden our knowledge. Not so much "fun", due to the topic of the tour, but informative and enlightening. Pricey tour, but worth the time and money invested.


It was a great history lesson. The guide has great knowledge about the events of D-Day and History of France. All went well with the reservation made online, bus left on time, the Museum of the Landing is great and the lunch was very good. Recommend the tour.

The trip was well organized and very informative. We enjoyed it very much. Highly recommend this tour.

Brian L Hanson

This tour of the D-Day landing beaches was outstanding, well organized, and quite informative. The staff was friendly and well organized both before and during the tour. A tour guide provided a narrative of what we were seeing (or going to see) so we could prepare to spend our time wisely. The museum at Caen was a great place to start before heading to the sites. It was an awesome experience.
