The American & British D-Day Experience – Winter

Tour Description

Full Day Group Tour of The American & British D-Day Sectors

The Advantages of a Group Tour

→ Our small D-Day Group Tour is a great way to discover the landing sites of Normandy alongside like-minded fellow travellers, accompanied by a professional native English-speaker Guide.

→ All of the D-Day sites listed – as well as additional brief stops on our planned route – have been carefully chosen to include the major sites in The American & British D-Day landing sectors. At major sites there is ample freetime to walk around and take photos and at brief stops – ‘Les Braves’ Monument at St. Laurent – we are not required to disembark.

→ You will have your own dedicated guide in a small semi-private group (max 8) throughout the entire duration of the group tour, who will go out of his / her way to make your day memorable and endeavour to answer your every question.

Travel in style, safely…

Our D-Day Group Tours are conducted in spacious 8-seat vehicles with air-conditioning front and rear, a fridge to keep your water chilled and onboard WiFi for all of your devices. Our Group Tour vehicles are also equipped with the latest in vehicle security & passenger safety technology.
