Full-Day American Battlefields and Sites of Normandy Tour from Bayeux
USD 116.81
Overview

Normandy is a history-filled region in France located on the Atlantic coast. It is famous throughout the world as the site of key WWII battles, like the infamous D-Day landings of 1944. During this personalized private tour from Bayeux, you’ll revisit the days of French resistance, German occupation, and American support with stops at Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach, and the American cemetery.

What to Expect

Begin your tour of the history-filled region of Normandy with pickup in Bayeux in an air-conditioned minivan. Your guide will be on hand to give you key facts and historical background, so you can get the most from your visits.

During this intimate guided historical tour you revisit the triumphant wins and heavy losses of the war’s most memorable campaigns. You travel to Utah Beach, where the US Fourth Infantry Division made its assault, before making your way to the tiny nearby town of Sainte-Mère-Église, site of the American paratrooper landing on D-Day.

At Point du Hoc, your guide explains how Americans scaled the cliffside, bringing to life the final days of battle. After your in-depth guided visits, enjoy free time to explore the American cemetery on your own, where you can look for graves and spend time in the visitor’s center before heading back to Bayeux for drop-off.
