Full day private guided tour of Normandy Landing beaches
No doubt our best American tour ! We will cover a large area, stopping to visit all major sites in the U.S sector. We will discover the extraordinary actions of the paratroopers in Ste Mère-Eglise and the Airborne Museum. We will also go to Utah beach where landed the U.S 4th Division.
During the day we can discuss a lot of subjects about the war (from German occupation to French Resistance) and speak about so many different soldiers’ war stories. After a quick stop at the German Cemetery, we will visit Pointe du Hoc. This German battery attacked by the U.S Rangers will put you right in the atmosphere: the beach, the cliff, the bunkers, the bomb craters… The best-known Bloody Omaha deserves two stops, one at each end.
Four miles long, no picture or movie has yet made it a justice. A third stop for Omaha is the heart-breaking U.S cemetery, for yet another perspective of the beach from the high ground. Your guide will give you time on your own at the end, to either stay longer in the cemetery or save time for the Visitor Center.

Full day small group tour Band of Brothers
You have already visited the highlights of the beaches, and watched “Band of Brothers”. Follow your specialist guide to discover what the 82ndand 101st Airborne paratroopers accomplished on D-day.
They had to jump by night and because of the bad weather, they ended up scattered. Nevertheless, they succeeded in securing the western flank of the invasion, often at the price of their lives. We will drive through many local villages in the hedgerow countryside.
You will hear so many incredible stories such as the way Lt Winters captured the gun battery of Brécourt Manor with only a few men and also the role played by the Easy Company in the liberation of Carentan. All of these actions will make you realize the extraordinary courage of these 15.000 troopers and the terrible sacrifice paid there.
