A full day tour to Mont St Michel, Omaha Beach and The American Cemetery
This tour takes in the iconic historical sites of Normandy for those on a tight schedule. In the morning we visit Mont St Michel, where we will visit this ancient fortress and place of worship, and in the afternoon the two most important sites of the American D-Day landings. We end the tour at the American military cemetery to see the final resting place of the young men who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of freedom.
Depending on time available we may be able to include extra stops, but these can be decided on the day.
The tour is priced to start from Bayeux or Caen, and there may be an extra charge for start points more than 50 Km from these locations. Due to the distances involved it is not possible to start this tour from Rouen, Honfleur or Le Havre.
08:00/08:30 I will meet you at your start point by prior arrangement. We then leave for the drive to Mont St Michel (approx 90 mins). After a visit to this medieval fortress and Abbey we will leave for Omaha Beach, where we will visit the Beach Memorials and see the remains of the German defenses. We then drive the short distance to The American Cemetery, where we will have time to visit the memorial and walk around the cemetery before returning to your start point. A snack lunch will be taken on route, or you may prefer to bring a packed lunch and stop for a quick picnic.
