Paris and the Normandy Invasion Beaches Tour with Mont St-Michel

Join Us on the 80th Anniversary of D-Day

A visit to the Normandy Invasion Beaches is a life-changing experience for many.

A tour to the Normandy invasion 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 beach 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 Normandy beaches.  Visit Utah Beach & Omaha Beach (American), Sword & Gold (British/Commonwealth) and Juno (Canadian) beaches.  Special attention is paid to Easy Red and Dog Green sectors. A small group tour is the only way to see the Normandy Invasion Beaches.

Museums:   Private tour of Hillman Bunker (based upon availablity).  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.

Mont St-Michel:  Visit one of the wonders of the world, the "Castle in the Sea", the abbey of Mont St-Michel.  Private guided van transportation between our hotel with admission to the abbey.

Giverny, the Home and Gardens of Claude Monet:  Enjoy a lunchtime 2-hour stop on our journey from Paris to Normandy to explore the gardens and home of the famed Impressionist painter, Claude Monet.

This tour of the Normandy Invasion Beaches is with a a small group of travelers.  The experience of walking in the sands of Utah and Omaha beach or entering the bunkers is something that can't be found with those big bus tours.  This is the Normandy Invasion Beaches tour for you.
