Landing/ Normandy/ June6/ A Day of Remembrance/PrivateDD/VIPtour


For almost 4 years, I have been specializing in Private Guided tours of the D-Day Landing Beaches and the Battle of Normandy. I will be glad to share my knowledge about the most impressive naval campaign. With me you'll discover the carnage unleashed here in Normandy on 6 June 1944.

I'll show you where General Norman Cota took the commandent on Omaha. You'll see the scenes from the movie "The Longest Day". You will hear the real story of "Saving Private Ryan"

For my clients I am trying to show as much as I can ( the original weapons, the German defensive areas)

Normally, one museum is visited during the tour and the entrance fee generally costs from 6 to 10 euros per person. Lunch is as you like, bring or buy sandwiches. You can choose: some light cooked lunch in a cafe or you can enjoy the 4 course lunch in a 5 star restaurant, you just need to say on the day. . .

Itinerary

Tours can be taken to visit the American Landing Zones or the British Landing Zones (Gold and Sword Beaches) and the Canadian Landing Zone (Juno Beach).

Utah beach+ Airborne Drop Zones at night June 6th
In the predawn darkness of June 6, thousands of U. S. paratroopers dropped inland behind enemy lines. Weighed down by their heavy equipment, many drowned in the flooded marshlands at the rear of the beach, and others were shot out of the sky by enemy fire. La Pointe du Hoc + Omaha + American Cemetery (The most powerful, the most humbling site, the Normandy American Cemetery has 9, 387 burials of US service men and women overlooking Omaha beach. . . )Defended by 1. 200 German troops, having 16 guns, 16 mortars, 86 machine guns, this landing area would create serious troubles for the Americans. . .

A Recent Review of this tour

Svetlana V. was amazing. So kind, full of knowledge, easy going, efficient. She did a 3 hour tour of WWII American site in Normandy in 3 hours which normally can take several days. I hightly recommend her and definately recommend going to Normandy France.
