Learn more about outstanding history and the operation "Neptune" June 6th, also known as "D-Day"!
Since I arrived to Normandy 3 years ago I started making the tours on the DD landing sites hoping to communicate to the travelers the intimate stories my family told me about summer of 1944 during the German occupation and the Allied invasion. The DD tour is filled with my personal stories, details from the books and all the funny anecdotes.
The tour can involve lots of different points, the American sector, British sector or Canadian sector. Beaches, German batteries, Museum.
Normally, one museum is visited during the tour and the entrance fee generally costs from 6 to 10 euros (Airborn museum in Ste Mère Eglise, D_Day Museum on Utah, Landing Museum in Arromanches, The Juno Beach center as for example)
"NOTE: If you have a specific itinerary in mind, send me a message and I'll customize the tour for you"

We spent yesterday with Anne-Sophie D. She was amazing and very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions...literally brought the history of D-Day alive for us. We would recommend her for your tour.
