Thinking of hiring a car in Paris for a Half-Day Tour departing Bayeux?

If you are considering hiring a car for a daytrip to Bayeux:

Often Paris-based clients will consider hiring a car in Paris for a one-day trip to Bayeux (and back) with a half-day D-Day Tour beginning late morning.

A six-hour return trip from Paris, with the added stress of the drive itself, is not advisable for several reasons. Therefore we stongly recommend clients take the 07:06 Train from Paris St. Lazare to Bayeux (Cherbourg line) and request a 09:20 pick-up at the station. Our half-day Mix & Match Tours are specially designed for this purpose and our ‘Customize Me’ reduced-tariff 4-hr chauffeur service is the perfect afternoon complement to a morning D-Day Tour.

Half-Day Tours: An Overview

Half-Day: Private Tours [Mon – Fri]

*Suitable as a daytrip from Paris / Caen

Our relatively short 4-hr Half-Day Private Tours are designed to be easier-going on the legs than full-day tours and as such are ideal for families with young children, for the elderly, or for clients who would simply find a full-day Tour exhausting!

We still thoroughly recommend choosing TWO of our Half-Day Tours as a full-day Mix & Match Tour, particularly for those clients who wish to take part in an immersive touring experience, one that will stay etched in their minds for years to come. Bear in mind too that YOU decide the pace on all of our tours…and we will go out of our way to make sure you never feel rushed regardless of your chosen tour.

Please also notice that three of our Half-Day Tours are offered only on a Mix & Match basis; they have been designed as flexible options in a full-day Mix & Match tour (See the Half-Day Private Tours page for more info).

Mix & Match - Full-Day Private Tours: Overview

Mix & Match: Private Tours [Mon – Sat]

*Suitable as a daytrip from Paris / Caen (Mon – Fri)

Our Mix & Match Tours offer clients the ultimate in touring flexibility. Whereas a half-day tour is fairly fixed in terms of route, a Mix & Match Tour is completely customizable (within the 9-hr maximum window). In addition, there is a Bayeux hotel pick-up / drop-off option included in the price. At checkout simply select your two half-day modules, add any special requirements, and book. Then on the day of your tour confirm your chosen itinerary with your guide enroute to your first site.

Finally, on Mix & Match tours we often have a special visitor centre or museum recommendation for clients, who may then choose lunch-on-the-go with a museum visit (E.g. The fabulous Airborne Museum at Sainte-Mère-Eglise), or instead opt for a sitdown 3-course lunch.

Cost: €560 + €20 p/p (max 8) for TWO modules. (Caen pick-up / drop-off + €70)

Airborne Tours: Flexible Options

The US and British Airborne landings preceeded the D-Day Infantry Division Landings by 6 hrs. On the Eastern flank, the British 6th Airborne Division, and on the Western flank, the 101st & 82nd US Airborne Divisions (18,000 men in total).

Tour Delta (British Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Bravo’ or ‘Customize Me’  as a full-day Mix & Match Tour.

Tour Echo (American Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Alpha’ or ‘Customize Me’ as a full-day Mix & Match Tour

We strongly urge Airborne enthusiasts to consider booking a full-day US Airborne or full-day British Airborne Tour, using our Premium Chauffeur Service, since it would allow for greater distances and much greater flexibility than is currently available via a semi-fixed tour – E.g. a 10-hr day. There are simply so many variables that it would be impossible to even design an Airborne Tour that would be to every client’s liking. Therefore we will happily customize an Airborne Tour, and work seamlessly with you until you’re satisfied before you book.

Mix & Match - Full-Day Private Tours: Overview

Mix & Match: Private Tours [Mon – Sat]

*Suitable as a daytrip from Paris / Caen (Mon – Fri)

Our Mix & Match Tours offer clients the ultimate in touring flexibility. Whereas a half-day tour is fairly fixed in terms of route, a Mix & Match Tour is completely customizable (within the 9-hr maximum window). In addition, there is a Bayeux hotel pick-up / drop-off option included in the price. At checkout simply select your two half-day modules, add any special requirements, and book. Then on the day of your tour confirm your chosen itinerary with your guide enroute to your first site.

Finally, on Mix & Match tours we often have a special visitor centre or museum recommendation for clients, who may then choose lunch-on-the-go with a museum visit (E.g. The fabulous Airborne Museum at Sainte-Mère-Eglise), or instead opt for a sitdown 3-course lunch.

Cost: €560 + €20 p/p (max 8) for TWO modules. (Caen pick-up / drop-off + €70)

Airborne Tours: Flexible Options

The US and British Airborne landings preceeded the D-Day Infantry Division Landings by 6 hrs. On the Eastern flank, the British 6th Airborne Division, and on the Western flank, the 101st & 82nd US Airborne Divisions (18,000 men in total).

Tour Delta (British Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Bravo’ or ‘Customize Me’  as a full-day Mix & Match Tour.

Tour Echo (American Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Alpha’ or ‘Customize Me’ as a full-day Mix & Match Tour

We strongly urge Airborne enthusiasts to consider booking a full-day US Airborne or full-day British Airborne Tour, using our Premium Chauffeur Service, since it would allow for greater distances and much greater flexibility than is currently available via a semi-fixed tour – E.g. a 10-hr day. There are simply so many variables that it would be impossible to even design an Airborne Tour that would be to every client’s liking. Therefore we will happily customize an Airborne Tour, and work seamlessly with you until you’re satisfied before you book.
