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.

What’s Included

Other: The driving and the guiding on the chosen sites. I do not recommend visiting a museum as they need around 1 hour time to visit. This 1 hour is part of the 9 hour time frame.

40 Euro - Museum entry, lunch, souvenir, per person
IMPORTANT! Many shops in Normandy refuse to accept 500 and 200 euro bills, the best is to use small 50 and 20 euro bills.

Our D-day beaches tour with Richard Henning was fantastic. The tour was well paced and very informative. Richard pointed so many interesting facts along the way and answered all our questions. I would not hesitate to recommend him for a tour.
