The tour was emotional and very comprehensive. Danielle was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant, and aimed to please. On the way to Normandy, she gave up a history and then had a folder full of laminated pictures to help illustrate each event and place. I learned a lot. AND on the way home, there was an accident on the hwy which she handled with grace, even if it was a 2 hour delay and we had to go to a TURKISH toilet!!!.It was not her fault, but she took over.

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.
