Tour Description

Half Day PRIVATE Tour of The American D-Day Sector

The Advantages of choosing a half-day Private Tour

→ Our half-day 4-hr PRIVATE Tour Alpha comes as a fixed 4-hr itinerary, with two Bayeux departures (09:00 / 14:00), but is also available as an exceptionally flexible tour, with a plethora of extendable *options (*See Tour Alpha – Flexi for more info). On this page there is a ‘Book Now’ direct link to reserve either the morning or afternoon fixed 4-hr tour.

→ You will have your own dedicated guide in your own small PRIVATE group throughout the entire duration of the tour, who will go out of his / her way to make your day memorable and endeavour to answer your every question.

4-hr fixed-itinerary PRIVATE Tour Alpha: Clients looking for a brief insight into the American campaign exprience often welcome the shorter fixed schedule. It picks up at 08:50 in the morning at client hotels (or Place de Québec) and returns to Place de Québec at 13:00. In the afternoon, it picks up at 13:50 from Place de Québec and at 18:00 sets clients down at either Place de Québec, at their Bayeux hotel or at *Bayeux Station (*suitable as a day-trip from Paris – with morning free-time sightseeing in Bayeux as a strongly recommended itinerary).

A quick look at the map below will give you an idea of this tour’s coverage (on a ‘fixed’ 4-hr tour).
