Full description

Meet your guide at Place de Québec and then begin your D-Day exploration adventure, retracing history as you uncover the day of June 6, 1944.

The first stop is at the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the heart of the jump zone for the 82nd Airborne U.S. forces. Listen to stories of how paratroopers rained on the village, and how one of them famously got caught in the tower of the church.

Visit Utah beach, the second location where American troops landed on D-Day. Pay a visit to the Utah Beach Museum and learn more about the fascinating history.

Then, continue to Pointe du Hoc, a breathtaking cliff offering lunar landscapes and a magnificent viewpoint over the English Channel. 

The site was built as a key point of the Atlantic Wall by the Germans because it was the highest point between the Omaha and Utah beaches and provided a great observation spot to notice any arrivals from the sea.

Head to Omaha beach, where the deadliest landings of the day took place. From your guide, learn about the landings here and the soldiers who risked their lives.

Your D-Day sightseeing tour of Normandy ends with a visit to the US military cemetery where you will have the chance to pay your respects and honor the soldiers of World War ll.

Very informative day touring and learning more about D-day. Seeing the beaches and Pointe du Hoc gave a much better appreciation for the challenges our soldiers overcame. The Normandy American Cemetery is an incredibly beautiful place and a very good tribute to our lost soldiers. It stirred a lot of emotions. Excellent day!

Great tour. You spend more time at monuments than on the road which is nice, however in January, many of the sites are closed. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Wish we had more time for the museums that were open and that there was a souvenir stop available.

The car was very comfortable, Steven was a safe and courteous driver, lots of historical information and clearly voiced. We learned so much. Completely fascinating. The museum at Omaha beach needed a bit more time. We got caught up in putting relatives names in the database looking for gravesites. And missed the film in the basement
