Vincent was the best tour guide that I have ever had. He had a love of history and was a great host. My son and I booked this trip at the last minute and we are so glad that we found this tour. It was fantastic. I would argue that it was the high point of our trip to France. Vincent was so knowledgeable about every place that we went. One of the best parts of the trip for us was the visit to the Pointe du Hoc. It is such an iconic place for Texas A&M grads and we had to find a way to make it there from Paris. All of the other places were so moving and emotional. The lunch was fantastic and I highly recommend anyone to grab this tour. You get to see so much and the time literally flies by. Thank you to Vincent for such a fantastic day that My son and I will never forget.

ITINERARY

Departing Paris by minibus, you’ll travel through the scenic Normandy countryside, winding through quaint French villages and rolling hills. You’ll reach Pointe du Hoc, a portion of the Normandy beaches well-known for the heroic assault of the US Army Rangers. After free time to explore Pointe du Hoc, continue to the American Cemetery in Colleville for a visit to the final resting place of 9,386 soldiers from World War II. A new visitor’s center was built there in 2007 to commemorate the D-Day operations in Normandy.
Omaha Beach, arguably the most famous of the Normandy D-Day landing beaches is your next destination; take time there to reflect on the enormity of its history before heading to lunch (with drinks included) at the historic 13th-centure restaurant Ferme del Rancoinniere in the village of Crepon.

After lunch, continue to the ruins at Arromanches, an artificial harbor built by the Allies in less than 15 days to aid in the invasion. Finish your journey along the Gold coast to Juno Beach and the Atlantic wall before returning to Paris. This tour is truly an experience, offering a chance to see the places our freedom was won.
