Description

Travel through the pastoral Normandy countryside to the historic battlefields and landing beaches of WWII, visiting the Utah Beach Museum and Pointe du Hoc. Pay your respects to fallen soldiers at the American Cemetery and enjoy an orchard cider tasting and a delicious Norman lunch.

Depart central Paris, bound for the shores of northern France. As you travel through the scenic hills and coastal farmland of Normandy, your expert English-speaking guide prepares you for each stop on the tour with insightful commentary about the significant events that took place here during World War II.

Visit the Utah Beach Museum, housed in an original German bunker, and see 1 of the only 6 remaining B-26 bomber aircraft in the world. Stop by a traditional Norman orchard to taste cider and Calvados − a famous regional apple brandy. At a restaurant overlooking the port of Grandcamp Maisy, enjoy an authentic Norman-style lunch prepared with fresh and local ingredients.

Travel to the cliff-top German defence post of Pointe du Hoc to see original German fortifications and bomb craters. Finally, spend a poignant moment reflecting at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Colleville-sur-Mer before exploring the informative Omaha Beach Visitor Centre.

The tour guide is very familiar with history of the area and events occurred. She is very articulate and a good story teller. The bus driver is also very skillful and friendly. He is an excellent and a safe driver. It’s an informative and good trip for us.

This is a very good tour had it not been for mother's nature "the rainy day" it would have been a great tour throughout. The guide Addie was wonderful. Addie was expert in her field. She knew history well and she talked about the attractions, asked questions to get people interested and curious, gave details about the history the events that led up to the Normandy battle fields. We also had extra time to stay at the American Cemetery so one could visit the Visitor Center if desired. We witnessed the flag lowering at American Cemetery which was great. It was such a beautiful solemn area and well maintained. The UTAH beach, the Museum, Pointe Du Hoc and the bunkers surrounding the area are amazing. The weather rained heavily at Utah beach so we were inside the Museum mostly but the weather dried out when getting to American Cemetery and Omaha Beach overlook which was wonderful. Lunch was delicious and cider tasting was a bonus.

The tour was fantastic! It’s a full day but completely worth it. Our guide Sense’ was top notch and extremely knowledgeable. The cider tasting was such a great addition to the already amazing trip and sites. I would highly recommend this if you need to pack Normandy into one day. It was nice to sit back and not worry about where you were going and how to get there. 5-star!
