Spend the day on the D-Day Beaches sites in Normandy from Paris with your private guide-driver


I will meet you in Paris by 7AM.
The tour starts early to be as soon as possible on the D-Day sites.

First we'll stop near Caen in Ranville at the Pegasus Bridge.

There the 61stBritish Airborne Division took control of this bridge jumping from Horsa Gliders and parachutes to prepare the way for D-Day from the early morning of June 6th 1944.

Then, I'll show you the Merville-Franceville Baterry where you will relive D-Day from a real bunker.

After another stop on Juno Beach, and at the Douvres La Delivrande Radar and Bunker Museum, let's go to :

"Mulberry Harbour" built for the D Day in Arromanches.

Then, you will spend some time on Omaha Beach and the American Cemetaryto pay tribute to the men who gave their life to save Europe and the world.

To finish your day I will show you the German Batteries in a Longues sur Mer, and explain you the history of this battle.

Back in Paris by train with the 6. 54PM direct train.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a spectacular day visiting Giverny with Igor. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to share many details of Monet, his history, inspiration and art. He was especially good at fielding the many questions from my 3 children. Giverny was a beautiful place, after visiting I have a more profound understanding of Monet's work. I highly recommend Igor as a tour guide for Giverny!!
