Private local guide and private driver for one full day


Your tour begins at your hotel, where, together with your private guide (who was born in Normandy), you'll board a luxury car. As you travel to Normandy, your guide will teach you about the region, pointing out sights along the way. Your guide will share stories about World War and Normandy as well.
Your first stop is Utah Beach with its extraordinary museum, and an original B-26 airplane, one of only six in the world and the only one in France. You'll want to spend time contemplating the beach, its natural beauty a sharp contrast to the dramatic events that occurred there.
Then time to relax for a great lunch in a local restaurant.
Pointe du Hoc is an incredible site (Bomb craters, bunkers, the insurmountable cliffs).
The most emotional, is the American Cemetery with over 9000 graves.
You'll have time to walk on Omaha beach.
At the end of the day, you will have new memories of the history and beauty of Normandy -and you will remember this day forever

A Recent Review of this tour

We had booked a tour with another guide who at the last minute was unable to take us. Patrice -- whom we had as a guide on our first day in Paris -- worked with TBL to pick up this tour to Normandy. His flexibility allowed us to spend a moving day visiting the Normandy beaches and US cemetery. The trip is long (three hours drive each way) but Patrice's driver had a very comfortable van we could stretch out in. Patrice allowed us time to soak in each site and shared insightful details along the way.
