Mix & Match: Tour Alpha

Tour Description

Half Day Private Tour of The American D-Day Sector

The Advantages of chosing TWO half-day Private Tours

→ Our full-day Mix & Match Tours comprise TWO half-day Tours – chosen by clients at checkout – offered at a reduced tariff.

→ This Includes: Tour customization, free Bayeux Hotel pick-up at 09:45 / and 17:45 (18:00) drop-off (*Caen pick-up available).

→ Ideal for flexible custom-created ’boutique’ tours and for visiting those rare sites and tourist attractions found ‘off the beaten track’.

Note: Our Mix & Match Private Tours are also available with a Caen Hotel pick-up / drop-off option and in some cases a small supplement will apply – we will advise at pre-booking and prior to payment (*advertised itineraries may change from Caen due to added distance).

→ All of the D-Day sites listed – as well as additional brief stops on our planned route – are based around the activities of The 2nd US Ranger Battalion, The 29th US Infantry Division (National Guardsmen) and the 1st US Infantry Division on D-Day. At major sites there is ample freetime to walk around and take photos and at brief stops – such as at ‘The Mulberry Harbour A’ memorial – we are not required to disembark (unless at clients’ behest).

→ 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.

This tour is suitable for clients who are arriving in Bayeux by train at 09:16, Mon – Fri, from Paris St. Lazare Station. 

Travel in style, safely…

Our full-day D-Day Mix & Match Private Tours are conducted in luxury 8-seat Mercedes Tourers with air-conditioning front and rear, drinks holders, a fridge to keep your water chilled, tinted electric windows for your privacy, USB charging points for all of your devices, onboard WiFi and exceptionally comfortable seating complete with leather upholstery. Not only do our vehicles have automatic gearboxes offering the smoothest ride possible, but they are also equipped with the latest in vehicle security & passenger safety technology.

Tour Schedule

The tour runs Monday to Saturday all year round. A selection of half-day & full-day Private Tours is also available Sundays throughout the year and enquiries are welcome via email.

The D-Day Sites you will visit on this tour

The American D-Day Sector*Pointe-du-Hoc, Vierville-sur-Mer (Saving Private Ryan film location) & National Guard Memorial, passing Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer & Monument ‘Les Braves’ on Omaha Beach, Omaha Beach & Colleville American Cemetery (optional *Visitor Centre instead of Pointe-du-Hoc).

*Please note: The asterisk * indicates options and clients are invited to choose one of the two starred options. Please bear in mind that a museum visit will last as long as clients wish, and typically take anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour.

If clients should be seeking more in-built tour flexibility, NormandyONtour recommends either a Full-Day Premium Chauffeur Service, or our Flagship Overlord-Neptune multiple-day D-Day Experience Tour.
