The 76th D-Day Anniversary - Updated: Nov 24th, 2020

Due to the 2020 Corona Virus and the likelihood that european tourism will remain adversely affected throughout 2021, we have decided to re-programme our partner sites (Viator & Trip Advisor) from March 2022 for all Private Tours and Chauffeur Services, as well as our new 2022 Group Tours (from April 2nd, 2022 onwards) and expect to have all of these online and bookable by Spring 2021.

Prior to relaunching our online booking system, we're basically awaiting news of unrestricted flights being restored between France/the rest of The EU, The USA, Canada and The UK. We expect this will happen some time in 2021.

Please keep following us on Facebook and Twitter for updates (@ddayguide)

We thank you for your patience and support.

GOLD BEACH - Asnelles

The plaque reads: "Right here was the terminal (disembarkation point) of Mulberry Harbour B (*after D-Day it was renamed: 'Port Winston'), running 900m in length (actually the full breadth of the harbour was 5 miles wide!), which was used to guide 220,000 men, and 40,000 vehicles which, in 4 months, had landed here on this quay where the LSTs (Landing Ship Tank - large transporters) docked. *Note: There was also an American Mulberry Harbour A, erected at Vierville-sur-Mer, but which was utterly and tragically destroyed amidst Normandy's worst storm in 40 years which raged from June 19 - 22nd, 1944.


Today, June 6 2020, we may not be able to visit the resting places of those who fell on D-Day (and beyond) but that will not stop us from remembering their and their families sacrifice, especially on this special day.

The French air-force still flew its annual "Patrouille de France" today, eight jets in a V-formation overflew the American Cemetery and Omaha Beach at precisely 14:15, with the customary tricolore smoke trails. Let us hope that next year we will all be able to attend the June 6th, 77th Annual D-Day Ceremony together. Until then, God Bless and stay safe...

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 global economy reboots and the site is once again live.

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 tourers - leather interiors, tinted windows, reclining seats, wifi, usb connections front and rear, drinks holders, with coffee & chilled beverages & snacks on board too. From April 2022 we will be adding competitively-priced Group Tours to our list of services. Among these will be our Mont Saint-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.

From Paris by train [Mon-Fri, 09:16 pick-up at Bayeux Train Station] or central Bayeux / Caen, or hotel pick-up [08:45 to 09:45, Mon - Sun]. 'Outside Zones' ('Other' Normandy pick-up/drop-off locations) are also covered within our extensive list of services.

NEWS: 2022 Group Tours (€115): spacious vehicles with all-round excellent panoramique viewing, 1-8 clients, and all tours will be led by professional fluent English-speaking guides.

A full day Day Tour of the American landing zones and D-Day Beaches typically includes:

  1. Angoville-au-Plain (a little church transformed into a field hospital by 2 American paratroopers)
  2. Ste. Marie-du-Mont (101st US Airborne)
  3. Utah Beach (4th US Division). On the way from Utah, we will stop at the monument dedicated to Richard Winters, hero of the series “Band of Brothers”
  4. Sainte-Mère-Eglise (where the famous American 82nd US Airborne paratrooper J. Steele got snagged on top of the church. This is our lunch stop too)
  5. Mission Impossible: La Pointe-du-Hoc (2nd US Rangers)
  6. Omaha Beach: Vierville (29th ID, National Guard Monument)
  7. The Normandy Colleville American Cemetery.

These are the stops but there will also be a lot of monuments, bunkers and sites to see from the vehicle on the way.

There’s enough time to visit the Airborne Museum in Sainte-Mère-Eglise (at lunchtime) and free-time at stops to explore on your own and take photos. Plenty of rest stops and restroom facilities en-route.

→ For fixed schedule full-day Private Tours We can provide a Mon-Fri Bayeux station pick up (at 09.16) or Mon-Sun *09:45 Bayeux/Caen Hotel pick up with a full day D-Day tour and drop off at 17:45 (in plenty of time to catch the 18.35 back to Paris). *Note: An 08:45 'Early- Bird' add-on ('extra') is also available at checkout.

*Tours & Services also from cruise ship ports of Cherbourg/Honfleur/St. Malo/Le Havre. Half-Day D-Day Tours from Paris hotels for onward transfers to Normandy too.
