Explore highlights of Normandy: Dday Landing Beaches and Mont Saint Michel


The first day we learn all details about American Dday.
We visit the most famous sites as Saint Mere Eglise, Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach and American cemetery. I will explain how Overlord plan was developed, what we expected and what finally happened at each site. Many funny and sad stories.

Next day, we discover Mont Saint Michel which has hardly changed at all in centuries. And it's difficult not to be impressed with your first sighting of it. You will learn about ancient ramparts, Benedictine Abbey, legends and french history which changed its face through the centuries.

A Recent Review of this tour

We spend 2 wonderful days with Elena and enjoyed every minute of it. She was knowledgeable the history of the Normandy Beach area. She provided us with important details of the D-Day invasion and World War 2. The second day we saw the William the Conquer Tapestry and Mont St Micheal. Elena would provide us with resources on the topics so we could follow-up the discussions at home. I highly recommend her for a tour of the Normandy.
