Full description
Learn about the history of World War II and the D-Day events with a guided tour of the key D-Day sites, along with admission to the Mémorial de Caen Museum.

The tour consists of a self-guided visit of the Mémorial de Caen itself and a guided tour of the D-Day Landing Beaches and key sites. You can spend as much time as you wish discovering the Mémorial de Caen on the same day as your Landing Beaches guided tour or on another day. 

The Mémorial de Caen is a museum and war memorial which you can explore at your own pace. Here, go on an historical journey through the 20th century, discovering major events from the end of World War I to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The museum features an entire section devoted to D-Day, and is the only museum in Normandy to relate the intensity of the invasion and explain its preparation in both enemy camps.

You'll also get the chance to visit the Normandy landing beaches in the company of a bilingual guide from Le Mémorial de Caen. Travel by air-conditioned minivan to the key American D-Day sites such as the artificial harbor at Arromanches, the American Military Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer, Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc.

Informative with a personal touch

Hats off to our excellent guide, Victoria, whose knowledge of the D-day landings was only surpassed by her friendliness. Having done tours of this area before, I wanted my teenage children to learn about this pivotal event. I can honestly say this was the best your I have ever done and I learned much that I didn’t know already.
