Premium Chauffeur

Transport Solutions with multilingual Driver-Guides

Bayeux / Caen…

We provide a fully air-conditioned, luxury 8-seat Mercedes Tourer with a native English-speaking Driver-Guide for a full-day D-Day Premium Chauffeur Service (Minimum 4-hr hire / 350km – up to  max 10 hours / 850km), based on a journey from a Bayeux / Caen base.

This service, also available in Français, Deutsch or Español, is ideal for clients in small groups wishing complete privacy & unsurpassed flexibility within a tailored high-end personal service.

This Chauffeur Service allows clients to take our advertised full-day 8.5-hr D-Day Private Tours or Cultural Visits and expand them to 10-hrs to include extended Airborne D-Day Tours; extended tour options from Caen or Outside Zones; extended visiting times at Le Mont-Saint-Michel (+ extended Colleville Cemetery options enroute e.g. Visitor Centre / Overlord Museum); D-Day Tours including exclusive Calvados Tasting options (complete with Private presentations, local food samples and exquisite Private Château visits (info upon request); onward travel to/from Outside Zones or Paris Airport Drop-off options at the end of a full day spent touring.

Extended Tours (10 hours:  09:00 – 19:00) – Typically companies offer 7 or 8-hr full-day D-Day Tours, however with time for lunch that leaves just 6 or 7 hours for visiting AND travel times between sites. Such tours may be quite necessary for daytrip clients from Paris with 18:35/20:09 return trains to catch, however Bayeux/Caen-based clients may be looking for something more. Since tours must always run to a schedule clients can sometimes leave Normandy wishing they’d had just a few hours more in which to make their unforgettable Normandy experience even more memorable. In response to previous clients’ feedback – received whilst working as guides ‘elsewhere’ – we have now transferred this broader concept of extended D-Day Tours over to our Chauffeur-Guide Services.

The following popular sites all have fantastic visitor centres & museums nearby however, it is often impossible for companies to add a further 1.5 hrs to an 8.5-hr day. Our extended service is designed with this in mind: Beginning at 09:00 we tour until 13:00, stop to have a relaxing lunch and a short beach stroll, before continuing the tour after lunch, terminating at 19:00 in time for an aperitif. With 8 hours ‘visiting time’ the day’s touring is transformed into a real travel experience. One can then choose to incorporate any of the following visitor centres/museums into the tour schedule: Utah BeachColleville US CemeteryJuno Beach, Omaha BeachGold BeachArromanches, Bayeux Commonwealth Cemetery, Sainte-Mère-Eglise, Saint-Côme-du-Mont, Sword Beach, Caen. 9 out of 10 tour companies do NOT take clients inside Colleville Cemetery Visitor Centre (1-hr visit) and millions of tourists visit Colleville Cemetery each year, and drive straight past the astounding Overlord Museum situated right on her doorstep – perhaps never to return…

Just to recap: On extended visits then, clients can include : Colleville US Cemetery [50 mins] and Visitor Centre [1 hour]; Utah Beach Visitor Centre [1.5 – 2 hrs]; Sainte-Mère-Eglise Airborne Museum [1.5 hrs]; The Azeville Battery or Merville Battery [2 hrs each]; Juno Beach Visitor Centre [2 hrs]; Hillman Bunker [1 hr]; The Arromanches Visitor Centre [1 hr]; The Arromanches 360 Cinema [40 mins];  The Atlantic Wall Museum [1.5 hrs]; The D-Day Experience – new in 2018 [2 hrs] and many more, not to mention the unknown gems in The American, Canadian & British Sectors (especially Airborne) that NO other companies will ever visit. Clients may also opt for an ‘unwind’ hour after lunch, to simply walk around and take it all in near: Courseulles, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, Ouistreham, Bayeux, Caen, Port-en-Bessin, Arromanches – wherever we find ourselves…

We advise clients to peruse our advertised Tours and compose their own itinerary prior to booking. If you require more info on our ‘unknown gems’ we will present them to you on the day of your tour(!) Clients will be able to confirm their chosen itinerary with their driver-guide prior to departure.

Booking Info:  A minimum 6-hr service-window from Bayeux / Caen can be booked and paid directly online (max 10 hrs). This service, which includes a Bayeux / Caen Hotel pick-up option, is bookable via the Bayeux / Caen button below. There is no pick-up / drop-off charge for pick-ups in and around Bayeux. However Caen pick-ups which are less than 7 hours will incur a + €70 Caen supplement. Clients will need to add the Caen pick-up ‘extra’ at checkout. Reservations for service-windows of less than 6 hours are by email only (cash € payment or creditcard on the day accepted).

Le Mont-Saint-Michel…

Note : Whereas our fixed-tariff cultural visits run to a tight schedule – with 2.5 hrs inside the Mont (if a 1-hr Omaha & Colleville option is chosen) – with our Premium Chauffeur Service, clients benefit from a relaxing 1.5 to 2hrs at Omaha, The Cemetery & Visitor Centre, and an additional hour for a sitdown lunch inside the Mont (3.5-hr visit).
