[T5] American D-Day Beaches – PRIVATE

Summer (Paris by train)

Tour Description

Full Day Private Tour of The American D-Day Beaches

The Advantages of a Private Tour

→ A 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 native 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. All of our D-Day Private Tours are fully modifiable and we will always accomodate requests for additional stops where possible. At major sites there is ample freetime to walk around and take photos and at brief stops – such as at Richard Winters Monument – 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 [Mon – Fri] from Paris St. Lazare Station (06:00 – 07:00 St. Lazare departure required, on The Cherbourg Line).
