Paris and the Normandy Invasion Beaches Tour

A visit to the beaches, cemeteries, and battle sites pays tribute to the acts of bravery our heroes displayed on June 6, 1944.  It brings with it a greater understanding and appreciation of the events surrounding that fateful day.  Walk in the sand at Utah and Omaha to get the vantage point of the liberators when their landing-craft ramps dropped into the surf.  Visit enemy bunkers.  Stare down the cliffs scaled by the Rangers at Pointe du Hoc.  Walk through liberated villages still scarred by the ferocious fighting. Stand on the hallowed ground where “The Bedford Boys” sacrificed all they could as the first wave of invaders at Vierville Draw. Everyone experiences different emotions upon seeing the field of crosses and Stars of David at the American Cemetery, but be assured of this - the memory of your visit will not soon be forgotten.

Visit all Five Beaches:  Get right on the beaches and view what the invaders faced as they were given the command to "go" and hit the beaches.  Visit Utah & Omaha (American), Sword & Gold (British/Commonwealth) and Juno (Canadian) beaches.  Special attention is paid to Easy Red and Dog Green sectors.

Museums:  Private tour of Utah Beach Museum. Private tour of Hillman Bunker (based upon availablity), Pegasus Bridge Museum, American Cemetery Visitor Center.   

Other Sites and Memorials: Pegasus Bridge, Café Gondrée, Ranville Commonwealth Cemetery, Ouisterham Casino, Commandos memorial, Mulberry artificial reefs, La Fiére, St. Mere Eglise, Brecourt Manor, Easy Red beach, Vierville Draw, entrance to various bunkers, visits to various gun placements, American Cemetery at Collevile-sur-Mer, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, Pointe du Hoc, Church of Angoville-Au-Plain, Le Cambe Germany war cemetery, plus many more memorials and sites of interest.  Let us know exactly what you want to see and we will put it on the itinerary.
