Coronavirus – Updated: April 29th 2020

Progressive ‘de-confinement’ has begin May 11th, with some young kids returning to school.

Universities, cafés, restaurants to stay closed. Stay tuned for weekly updates. People are now free to circulate, while cafes remain closed and most areas attracting large crowds remain closed too – and sadly that includes D-Day sites.

Our website is ready and will go live mid-June as the situation here in France unfolds – more below on expected 2020 tour dates.

We thank you for your patience and support. 

*Update today by French authorities regards refunds for cancelled tours due to Corona virus: According to the French authorities they have today decreed that tourist companies must hold client funds in escrow for up to 18 months. During that period the client can either reschedule their tour (up to 18 months) or not. If no tour is rescheduled within that time frame – or no replacement tour can be offered – then the client is entitled to a full refund (minus charge-back fees) at the 18 month marker.

Due to the Corona Virus and the current ‘confinement’ we have decided to re-programme our partner sites (Viator, Trip Advisor, Expedia and Get Your Guide) from August 2020 for all Private Tours and Chauffeur Services, as well as our new 2021 Group Tours and expect to have these online and bookable by the end of June 2020. It’s all very fluid here. All tours, shuttles and chauffeur services will also be available via the website directly, as soon as the ‘confinement’ period has completely passed, and tourists feel confident enough to return to Normandy. Basically all of the major hotels have ‘crossed’ out the return of international tourists this entire year.

Our website and booking system update has obviously been delayed by the global pandemic, which has also on a personal & professional level had a huge impact (one close family member passed away recently in Glasgow, aged 80, and it’s impossible to leave France to attend the funeral, which took place today – Apr 16th). It’s all rather sad. So we urge everyone to stay safe, indoors, and look after family, and it goes without saying, we wish everyone well and hope to welcome you here, perhaps later in the year, or in 2021.

Our site WILL move forward as soon as we have dates with which to pre-programme our booking system and that availability will depend upon the French Authorities. For the time being, it is unfortunately a waiting game for the entire global tourism industry. It looks like all June D-Day events have been cancelled this year, as well as yearly festivals (July’s popular Bayeux Medieval Festival etc).

**We are not expecting international tourists before September at the earliest… we will keep you updated on this page.

NB: We have ‘frozen’ pre-bookings for April-August already and have agreed to postpone all pre-paid Private Tours to a later date. Therefore, client payments will be held in escrow until the rescheduled tour date comes around, regardless of whether clients have purchased our Cancellation Insurance or not. Your payment is safe and your tour guaranteed, regardless of when you finally get here.

Our 2021 Group Tours (April 2nd 2021 onwards) will be available for purchase online when the site goes live in June.

(Image: Out & About: Starting the company and filing official paperwork in 2018 [upper-left], and 2019 publicity event for Bayeux & Caen Tourist Board) 

Our website is packed with:
→A choice of carefully structured Private and Group D-Day Tours (in small personable groups of 8 max), led by professional Guides & conducted using stunning visual materials.
Sightseeing & Cultural Visits: Cidre & Cheese Tasting; Le Mont Saint-Michel; St. Malo, Giverny, Honfleur, La Loire & more.
→ Our luxury Chauffeur Services on board a Mercedes Tourer: Leather interior, carpeted floor, tinted windows, reclining seats, comfy neck rests, drinks holders, USB charging ports front & rear; WiFi on board; A/C and heating front & rear; clear audio throughout via guide’s headset and – last but not least – hot coffee, tea and chilled juices, sodas & water.
→ Our Motorcycle Private Tours: 1 pillion passenger on board our luxury Honda Goldwing Classic (for any of the above services) or Small (1-8) or large (9-20) D-Day Group Moto-Tours, led by our Moto-Guide, for bikers riding on their own two wheels.
→ We also have hundreds of hi-rez pics, travel info, links to train tickets, museums & visitor centres, taxi & airport tips, weather info, Bayeux Hotel info & links and so much more…
We are very mindful that we also still need to update our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest accounts from back in 2019! We have SO many great stories and images from the massive 75th Anniversary. We will get around to that just as soon as the site has gone live. Plus, we have actually been out & about ONTour throughout Winter 2019 /early 2020, which slows things down a little bit administratively.
But, it’s been SO SO good to get out and meet folks throughout the Winter. Not merely because it breaks the monotony of PC marathon sessions BUT because TOURING is what we do best – the strenuous IT hours are merely a means-to-an-end and that end is meeting YOU for your special day here in unforgettable Normandy.
So, whether it be guided Group Tour of one or all of the Allied Landing Beaches or a Group Shuttle to Le Mont Saint-Michel via The Overlord Museum or Colleville US Cemetery, or its stunning new {June 2019} Visitor Centre; perhaps a Private Shuttle with an early morning pick-up from a Paris hotel or Paris CDG Airport, followed by a trip up the Cheese & Calvados Cidre Routes in Le Pays d’Auge enroute to Normandy – no matter how simple or complex your itinerary – we have still got you covered!
In late Dec 2019, *one family’s experience of a customized Private Tour – spread over 3 days – included all of the aforementioned (*click link for the Trip Advisor review).
→ All of our Group Tours are conducted in English. However at checkout, Private Tour & Chauffeur-Service clients can also choose any private service in one of the following languages: French, Spanish, German and *Japanese (*Le Mont Saint-Michel only).
Very competitive pricing:
→ We also have the lowest Private Tour prices in Normandy; tours which clients can modify and/or customize simply by adding a selection of optional add-ons or ‘extras’ to their order within our booking system.
Flexible payment options:
→ Furthermore, by ‘pre-booking’ (€1 deposit), you can then proceed in complete confidence with the design of your own simple one-day or complex multiple-day customized tour itinerary, planning – over days or weeks (with or without our input and feedback) – until you are fully satisfied with your itinerary and the smallest details. By doing so you will ensure 100% satisfaction on the day; before you pay. If satisfied with any of our fixed itinerary tours ‘out-of-the-box’, then clients can also proceed quickly through the checkout and pay in full.
→ We also offer flexible payment options with our own Cancellation Insurance, which for a small fee, covers client reservations right up until your tour departure (see T&Cs). At checkout choose between two global giants, Paypal and Authorize.Net (secure card processing), or opt to pay merely a part deposit, with the remainder paid on-the-day in cash or by card (*We have secure card processing on board all of our vehicles).

About Us – Some General Info

We opened shop in 2019 with fresh ideas for well-paced, enjoyable Private D-Day Tours and sightseeing trips, for people of all ages and backgrounds, riding comfortably in a luxury 9-seat Mercedes Tourer – leather interiors, tinted windows, reclining seats, wifi, usb connections front and rear, drinks holders, with coffee & chilled beverages & snacks on board too. From March 2021 we will be adding competitively-priced Group Tours to our list of services. Among these will be our Mont Sain-Michel ‘special’ shuttle via Colleville American Cemetery (with options to visit Omaha Beach, The Overlord Museum or spend time in The Cemetery Visitor Centre)
Last year in 2019, in addition to our international tourists, we guided: Well-schooled D-Day enthusiasts, hobbyists, international student-groups, as well as active US Rangers (!), active and retired pilots and tank commanders and of course veterans too. So, regardless of your background, we have something to suit all knowledge levels, tastes, and requirements.
We also provide high-end Chauffeur Services (with/without a ‘guide’), for hotel and airport transfers (including Paris CDG, Caen-Carpiquet) and again, these are tailor-made to suit. Whether travelling in style from Normandy to Paris, or Paris to Le Pays d’Auge, we can assist.
