[T2] The American Beaches – Summer (PRIVATE) – Bayeux

Tour Description

Full Day PRIVATE Tour of The American D-Day Sector

The Advantages of a Private Tour

→ A ‘Fixed-circuit’ Private Tour is the perfect way to discover the D-Day landing sites of Normandy in a small family group, or group of friends, accompanied by a professional fluent 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 D-Day landing sector. At major sites there is ample free-time to walk around and take photos and at brief ‘photo opportunity pitstops’, we are not required to disembark.

→ You will have your own dedicated guide in your own small private party (max 8) 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.

Travel in style, safely…

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