T7. Canadian & British Sector Day D-Day Tour (Private)

Summer (FULL-day)

Tour Description

Full-Day Private Tour of The Canadian & British D-Day Sectors

 

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 Canadian & British D-Day landing sectors. 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 Bill Millin 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.

→ Our Private Tour clients benefit from a *09:35 Bayeux / Caen Hotel or Bayeux Train Station pick-up service, returning to base at appx 17:45 and in plenty of time to catch the *18:00 -19:00  (*appx  )return train to PARIS St. Lazare.

*We also offer an 08:45 ‘Early-Bird’ start option from Bayeux/Caen hotels.

This tour is suitable for clients who are arriving in Bayeux by train, on the early-morning 06:00 – 07:00 direct service to Bayeux, from Paris St. Lazare Station [Mon – Fri]. 

Travel in style, safely…

Our D-Day Private Tours are conducted in spacious, comfortable panoramic 8-seat vehicles, with air-conditioning front and rear, a fridge to keep your water chilled and onboard WiFi for all of your devices.
