Discover the hart of the D-Day beaches from Bayeux or Caen
Discover the D-Day beaches in a comfortable Mini Van.
You can choose between the US, Canadian or/and British D-Days Beaches and their related sites.
For US visitors, from Caen or Bayeux we can even go to the less visited US UTAH Beach wich is further away.
For British and Canadien visitors, Caen and Bayeux are inside the British/Canadien sector so all sites are reachable within one day. But careful, as there are so many not all are visitable in one day.
Important! This tour is very popular and so I'm often quickly booked. It is better to reserve at least 6 month ahead.
The D-Day beaches have roughly three sectors:
- Us with:
- Omaha Beach, US Cemetery at Colleville, La pointe du Hoc (Ranger memorial) and Utah beach, Saint Mére Eglise , are the most famous ones.
- Canadian with:
- Juno Beach, Juno Beach Memorial, Canadian Cemetery at Beny/ Reviers, are the most famous ones.
- British: Gold Beach, Sword Beach, Bayeux Commonwealth . Cemetery, Artificial Harbor at Arromanches, Pegasus Bridge, are the most famous ones.
IMPORTANT It is not possible to do all in one day.

It was clear that D-Day beaches are Richard's passion! He picked our family of 6 up at our VRBO and we were off! We communicated with him in advance so he had an idea on what we wanted to see. We fined tuned that when he arrived. My husband is quite a history buff so Richard's knowledge was quite impressive. The American Cemetery was very moving. Our kids liked climbing around the German bunkers. He helped us order lunch and even helped us pick up our rental car as we do not speak French. Great tour!
