Explore all the D-Day Beaches from Caen/ Bayeux with your private guide-driver


I will meet you in Caen at 9AM with some croissants and coffees.

Then, let's go to Ste Mère Eglise by Utah Beach where the US Airborne division paratroopers jumped back on June 6th 1944.

Now, let's go to see Utah Beach where the 4th Army led by Brig. Gal. T. Rooselvelt landed successfully and took the beach in 3hrs.

Time now for Omaha beach and the the Pointe du Hoc where the US Rangers had to climb 80 feet cliffs at dawn under heavy fire to get control of this German strongpoint.

On Omaha Beach let's go to the Normandy American Cemetary to see the graves of all these men who gave their lives to save Europe and Freedom.

We'll then spend some time on Omaha Beach to understand what really happened on here on D-Day.

Here, I will show you the amazing Artificial harbour called "Mulberry Harbour" built for the D Day in Arromanches.
Arromanches and the 360° cinema "The 100 Days of Normandy" (20' movie)

To finish I will show you the German Batteries of Longues sur Mer.

Back in Caen, Bayeux 7PM

Can't thank Igor enough for the work he did to organize a highly personalized tour. His interest and knowledge of history and the environs of Caen made for a full day tour worth every penny we paid, and more.
