Operation Overlord from Paris by minivan or car
Since the early 90's in France, it's remarkable how some new destinations had become really popular, especially among the US visitors, this is the case of the landing beaches in Normandy.
This tour, despite the long drive, is one of my favorites; Starts at your hotel, after the morning drive we will see spots like la "La Pointe du Hoc" or the American mémorial at Omaha beach. The tour can be customized, therefore I can propose several possibilities regarding the different landmarks and spots. At the end of the day, we will be at the center of Paris around 7 pm, under good traffic conditions. In total 600 km, around 370 miles; I know. . . it's a long distance, but the van is big enough for 7.
La Pointe du Hoc (rangers mémorial)
Omaha beach (memorials and beach)
Coleville cemetery and the visitors center.
Arromanches (artificial harbor).
Eventually and depending on our Schedule;
German battery at Longues Sur Mer

Gustavo was a wonderful guide. Very informative and fun. We were 4 in our 60's and he was very patient and accommodating. We would highly recommend him to anyone.
