[T6] The Band Of Brothers – Summer (PRIVATE) – Bayeux

Tour Description

Full Day Private Tour of The Band Of Brothers Sites

The Advantages of a Private Tour

→ A ‘Custom-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. 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 ‘The Filthy 13′ monument – we are not required to disembark (unless at clients’ behest).

→ You will have your own dedicated guide in your own small private party 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.

→ Our Private Tour clients benefit from a free *09:35 Bayeux hotel / B&B pick-up service, returning to base at appx 18:00. A central Bayeux, Place de Québec, pick-up / drop-off is also available (ideal if lodging in central Bayeux).

*We also offer an 08:45 ‘Early-Bird’ start option and on this extensive tour it is strongly recommended (especially if choosing ‘Option A‘ below).

Additional pick-up locations: *Carentan / *Sainte-Mère-Église pick-up/drop-off  (upon request via email). Please note our [T2] ‘Fixed-circuit’ operates from the aforementioned towns [*at T4 rates].

This tour is suitable for clients who are arriving in Bayeux  at 08:45 by train [Mon – Fri] from Paris St. Lazare Station (06:00 – 07:00 St. Lazare departure required, on The Cherbourg Line. NB: Modifiable ticket advised. Return train typically at 18:30 or 20:00).

Travel in style, safely…

Our D-Day Private Tours are conducted in spacious 8-seat 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.

Tour Schedule

We provide a free pick-up/drop-off service at client hotels [Mon-Sun], or B&B accomodation (within a 5-mile radius of central Bayeux, Place de Québec), at 09:45 / *08:45 (*’Early-Bird’ option). A central Bayeux, Place de Québec is also available.

*Check-in is always 10-mins prior to departure.

NB: Place de Québec is a designated pick-up point for all major D-Day Tour Companies, therefore kindly ensure you board the correct company’s vehicle! (See ‘Helpful Info’ for pick-up location maps).

Important (with the exception of tours starting in Carentan & Sainte-Mère-Église on our [T2] itinerary): If your pick-up/drop-off lies within our 5-mile pick-up zone, then pick-up is free.

If outwith our Bayeux 5-mile designated pick-up zone, there will be a supplement payable at checkout (up to 10 miles each way from Bayeux to pick-up point included in the fee / e.g. 20-mile roundtrip for pick-up / 20-mile roundtrip for drop-off].

Note: If your pick-up location or tour date isn’t ‘available’ within our booking system, simply just drop us a line.

The D-Day Sites you will visit on this tour

The Band Of Brothers Sector(s): Sainte-Mère-Eglise, Currahee 101st – Meehan C47 crash-site monument, Marmion’s Farm, Utah Beach WN 8 German Strongpoint – ‘Leclerc Division’, Utah Beach (& Roosevelt Café & Souvenir shop), Richard D. Winters Monument, “Easy” Company 506 P.I.R Monument at Brécourt Manor, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, NFRM (Normandy French Resistance Monument), Drop Zone D and Angoville Church, (*optional) *’D-Day Experience‘ Visitor Centre (Imax, exhibition & “Dead Man’s Corner” House), Carentan, Filthy 13 Memorial, Pointe-du-Hoc, Vierville (Saving Private Ryan film location) & Omaha Beach, Monument ‘Les Braves’ at Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, Normandy American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer.

NB: Please be aware that a visit to The stunning ‘D-Day Experience‘ Visitor Centre lasts appx 1.5hrs and, if chosen as an option, would alter the original itinerary (and create a new itinerary, labelled below ‘Option A‘) and therefore visits to the following sites will not be possible: Carentan, Filthy 13 Memorial and Pointe-du-Hoc, Vierville (WN #71) and St Laurent (‘Les Braves’) on this tour. Our Omaha visit on ‘Option A‘ would be WN #62 on Omaha exit E3 (The US 1st Infantry Division) after our American Cemetery penultimate stop. Time-permitting we ‘may’ still be able to drive through Vierville and St Laurent on the way to The US Cemetery (also traffic dependent on-the-day).

Note: As a ‘guide’ for clients: We have prefixed all numbered stops with the letter A, if they would be affected by the inclusion of a visit to The D-Day Experience Visitor Centre. Therefore, if clients are NOT visiting the aforementioned attraction, kindly ignore all references to ‘Option A‘ – and these will be included in the tour as advertised.

Pick-up Times & Locations

→ If you are based in central Bayeux, then we suggest an 08:45 ‘Early-Bird’ hotel start [Mon-Sun] for this tour (08:45 ‘Early-Bird’ pick-up option available at checkout), returning to your Bayeux hotel at 17:45-18:00.

Alternatively, why not book a 08:45 or 09:45 Place de Québec pick-up in the centre of Bayeux and take a morning stroll through Bayeux and grab a fresh coffee & croissant before your tour starts? Lunch on this extensive tour would be a panini / sandwich menu (cake & juice) near Ste. Mère or Utah, which we can stop and eat anytime (and carry on the onboard fridge until hungry!).

→ Please refer to ‘Helpful Info’ menu for pick-up location maps.
