Welcome to our Useful Accordian: Tours From Paris- Introduction

Paris daytrip clients: Kindly also refer to the selected tours detailed on the following pages –

For BAYEUX Departures: Full-Day Private Tours and Half-Day Private Tours

For CAEN DeparturesTours From Caen.

Note: For daytrips to Le Mont-Saint-Michel, with options to visit Omaha Beach & Colleville American Cemetery enroute, please consult our Premium Chauffeur Services page.

Caen-based clients: Please note that due to the distances between Caen and specific D-Day sites, certain Tours are only available with a Bayeux pick-up.

This section contains a summary of each of our D-Day Private Tours departing from Bayeux (or Caen) with a list of sites visited for quick and easy reference.

Among our D-Day tours you will not only find full-day fixed Tours based around the three main Allied Sectors – American, Canadian & British – but flexible full-day Mix & Match Tours, which are simply TWO half-day Tours to be mixed & matched according to your preference: E.g ‘Tour Alpha’ (American Sector) +Tour Echo (American Airborne Sector) OR Bayeux‘ (Sightseeing Visit) + ‘Tour Charlie’ (Canadian Sector) ORTour Delta (British Airborne) + Tour Bravo (British Sector) OR Bayeux‘ + Customize Me‘ (reduced tariff 4-hr flexible Premium Chauffeur Service) etc.

You will find more information regards these tours on our Half-Day Private Tours page (or further below in this section).

Is Bayeux worth visiting ?

Paris daytrip clients

Would you go to Egypt and not want to see the Pyramids?

If you are travelling to Normandy for the day by train from Paris, then we sincerely recommend a 09:20 Bayeux Train Station pick-up followed by a Half-Day D-Day Tour of your chosen D-Day Sector, with lunch in Bayeux, and a half day spent sightseeing in the old medieval Town of Bayeux, accompanied by your guide. It would be such a shame to visit Bayeux and miss the stunning Cathedral, renowned Tapestry and never to have strolled along her historical Normand streets, steeped in Caramels, Cheese & Calvados…and completely unscathed by World Wars!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us via email if you need help in any way with your booking. We endeavour to respond to all emails within 24 hrs (72 hrs in High- Season).

Important Booking Info

All of our Private Tours & Shuttles remain customizable for our Paris day-trip clients – as far as itineraries are concerned. However the start times & pick-up locations are fixed, and these are clearly indicated (in white) at the foot of the images accompanying each tour opposite. Since clients will need to select their pick-up location at checkout – we therefore ask that you please pay special attention to that part of the payment process since an incorrect  location chosen may result in a forfeited tour fee !

Useful Tip 1: The Four Beaches Private Tour departs Caen only. Our remaining Group Tours depart Bayeux only. (From 2020 we will propose daily Caen Group Tour departures).

Useful Tip 2: Cultural Visits with the following *options added – *Omaha Beach, *Colleville US Cemetery  will ALWAYS start in Bayeux.

A note to our Paris-based clients

We offer a selection of Private Cultural Visits and Private or Group D-Day Tours, which have been carefully chosen with our Paris-based clients and current train schedules in mind.

These tours and shuttles are not only suitable as a daytrip by train from Paris by train, but to offer maximim efficiency – and minimise transit times for Paris daytrip clients – they depart either Caen OR Bayeux depending on the proximity of the D-Day sites or tourist attractions themselves. We have carefully drafted these schedules taking into account a mulititude of factors, and it is our hope that once in Bayeux / Caen, our clients will simply sit back and relax in comfort and trust us with providing the best guided D-Day Tours available in Normandy today.

Our Cultural Visits are also viable as a daytrip from Paris, E.g Le Mont-Saint-Michel (with *options  to visit The Colleville American Cemetery & Omaha Beach OR Calvados Tasting enroute IF departing Bayeux). Please refer to individual tour pages for departure times, locations & itinerary details.

See Helpful Info menu above for pick-up locations, maps, trains and more…

There is an excellent (2-hrs + 15-minutes) direct Train Service from Paris St. Lazare (Dep: 07:06) to Bayeux (Arr: 09:16), Mon – Fri. (*The train stops briefly at Caen just before Bayeux). NB: We also advise purchasing a ‘modifiable‘ train ticket.

Which Cemeteries will we visit on a Group Tour (Bayeux) ?

Cemeteries on our route

On The Longest Day Tour we always visit Colleville American Cemetery (50 mins).

On The Allied Triangle Tour & brief stop can also be made enroute at The Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery or Ryes Commonwealth Cemetery to allow clients to pay their respects. We never visit the three cemeteries in a day and the short 15-min pause is allocated as freetime (see below).

Unlike the vast Colleville Cemetery, these small cemeteries are directly accessible from the roadside. Therefore as soon as we park and exit the vehicle we’re already ‘in’ the cemetery grounds. Although 15 mins may seem short, it is still sufficient time for strolling around the cemetery grounds, paying respects and signing the visitor’s book.

Note: There will be no guide ‘presentations’ at these smaller cemeteries, and clients wishing more time on-site, with a formal brief presentation, are encouraged to consider one of our Half-Day Private Tours.

Half Day Private Tours: 4hrs

Half-Day: Private Tours [Mon – Fri]

*Suitable as a daytrip from Paris / Caen (Mon – Fri)

Our relatively short 4-hr Half-Day Private Tours are designed to be easier-going on the legs than full-day tours and as such are ideal for families with young children, for the elderly, or for clients who would simply find a full-day Tour exhausting!

We still thoroughly recommend choosing TWO of our Half-Day Tours as a full-day Mix & Match Tour, particularly for those clients who wish to take part in an immersive touring experience, one that will stay etched in their minds for years to come. Bear in mind too that YOU decide the pace on all of our tours…and we will go out of our way to make sure you never feel rushed regardless of your chosen tour.

Please also notice that three of our half-day tours are offered only on a Mix & Match basis; they have been designed as flexible options in a full-day Mix & Match tour (See the Half-Day Private Tours page for more info).

*Reminder: We regret that due to transit times to The Merville Battery, or to Utah Beach, Tour Delta (British Airborne) and Tour Echo (American Airborne) are NOT suitable as standalone half-day tours. ‘Customize Me’ 4-hr flexible Chauffeur Service is only available as part of a Mix & Match Tour.

Airborne Tours: Flexible Options

The US and British Airborne landings preceeded the D-Day Infantry Division Landings by 6 hrs. On the Eastern flank, the British 6th Airborne Division, and on the Western flank, the 101st & 82nd US Airborne Divisions (18,000 men in total).

Tour Delta (British Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Bravo’ or ‘Customize Me’ as a full-day Mix & Match Tour.

Tour Echo (American Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Alpha’ or ‘Customize Me’ as a full-day Mix & Match Tour

We strongly urge Airborne enthusiasts to consider booking a full-day US Airborne or full-day British Airborne Tour, using our Premium Chauffeur Service (See our 2019, 75th Anniversary Special Offer below), since it would allow for greater distances and much greater flexibility than is currently available via a semi-fixed tour – E.g. a ten-hour day. There are simply so many variables that it would be impossible to even design an Airborne Tour that would be to every client’s liking. Therefore we will happily customize an Airborne Tour, and work seamlessly with you until you’re satisfied before you book.

Welcome to our Useful Accordian: Tours From Paris- Introduction

Paris daytrip clients: Kindly also refer to the selected tours detailed on the following pages –

For BAYEUX Departures: Full-Day Private Tours and Half-Day Private Tours

For CAEN DeparturesTours From Caen.

Note: For daytrips to Le Mont-Saint-Michel, with options to visit Omaha Beach & Colleville American Cemetery enroute, please consult our Premium Chauffeur Services page.

Caen-based clients: Please note that due to the distances between Caen and specific D-Day sites, certain Tours are only available with a Bayeux pick-up.

This section contains a summary of each of our D-Day Private Tours departing from Bayeux (or Caen) with a list of sites visited for quick and easy reference.

Among our D-Day tours you will not only find full-day fixed Tours based around the three main Allied Sectors – American, Canadian & British – but flexible full-day Mix & Match Tours, which are simply TWO half-day Tours to be mixed & matched according to your preference: E.g ‘Tour Alpha’ (American Sector) +Tour Echo (American Airborne Sector) OR Bayeux‘ (Sightseeing Visit) + ‘Tour Charlie’ (Canadian Sector) ORTour Delta (British Airborne) + Tour Bravo (British Sector) OR Bayeux‘ + Customize Me‘ (reduced tariff 4-hr flexible Premium Chauffeur Service) etc.

You will find more information regards these tours on our Half-Day Private Tours page (or further below in this section).

Is Bayeux worth visiting ?

Paris daytrip clients

Would you go to Egypt and not want to see the Pyramids?

If you are travelling to Normandy for the day by train from Paris, then we sincerely recommend a 09:20 Bayeux Train Station pick-up followed by a Half-Day D-Day Tour of your chosen D-Day Sector, with lunch in Bayeux, and a half day spent sightseeing in the old medieval Town of Bayeux, accompanied by your guide. It would be such a shame to visit Bayeux and miss the stunning Cathedral, renowned Tapestry and never to have strolled along her historical Normand streets, steeped in Caramels, Cheese & Calvados…and completely unscathed by World Wars!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us via email if you need help in any way with your booking. We endeavour to respond to all emails within 24 hrs (72 hrs in High- Season).

Important Booking Info

All of our Private Tours & Shuttles remain customizable for our Paris day-trip clients – as far as itineraries are concerned. However the start times & pick-up locations are fixed, and these are clearly indicated (in white) at the foot of the images accompanying each tour opposite. Since clients will need to select their pick-up location at checkout – we therefore ask that you please pay special attention to that part of the payment process since an incorrect  location chosen may result in a forfeited tour fee !

Useful Tip 1: The Four Beaches Private Tour departs Caen only. Our remaining Group Tours depart Bayeux only. (From 2020 we will propose daily Caen Group Tour departures).

Useful Tip 2: Cultural Visits with the following *options added – *Omaha Beach, *Colleville US Cemetery  will ALWAYS start in Bayeux.

A note to our Paris-based clients

We offer a selection of Private Cultural Visits and Private or Group D-Day Tours, which have been carefully chosen with our Paris-based clients and current train schedules in mind.

These tours and shuttles are not only suitable as a daytrip by train from Paris by train, but to offer maximim efficiency – and minimise transit times for Paris daytrip clients – they depart either Caen OR Bayeux depending on the proximity of the D-Day sites or tourist attractions themselves. We have carefully drafted these schedules taking into account a mulititude of factors, and it is our hope that once in Bayeux / Caen, our clients will simply sit back and relax in comfort and trust us with providing the best guided D-Day Tours available in Normandy today.

Our Cultural Visits are also viable as a daytrip from Paris, E.g Le Mont-Saint-Michel (with *options  to visit The Colleville American Cemetery & Omaha Beach OR Calvados Tasting enroute IF departing Bayeux). Please refer to individual tour pages for departure times, locations & itinerary details.

See Helpful Info menu above for pick-up locations, maps, trains and more…

Travelling to Bayeux / Caen from Paris by train?

There is an excellent (2-hrs + 15-minutes) direct Train Service from Paris St. Lazare (Dep: 07:06) to Bayeux (Arr: 09:16), Mon – Fri. (*The train stops briefly at Caen just before Bayeux). NB: We also advise purchasing a ‘modifiable‘ train ticket.

Please refer to individual Tour pages opposite & consult our Booking your Paris > Bayeux Train page on the Helpful Info menu above for more details.

Pick-up / drop-off: We operate a free 09:20 Mon – Fri BAYEUX Train Station pick-up / drop-off on all Private Tours, Group Tours & Cultural Visits (except The Four Beaches Private Tour), and we also operate a 09:00 Mon – Fri CAEN Train Station pick-up on selected Private Tours (others may incur a + €70 Caen pick-up supplement – See Tours From Caen for more details).

Important info: There is currently no train station pick-up service on Saturdays, although our D-Day Group & Private Tours do depart Place de Québec, Bayeux, on Saturdays at 09:45, which is suitable for Caen-based clients travelling by train to Bayeux on Saturday morning.

Please always confirm train times as schedules can sometimes vary slightly. We will always be at the station to meet you and will wait should your train be running *late. 

*Please refer to our T&Cs on the About Us menu above.

Which Cemeteries will we visit on a Group Tour (Bayeux) ?

Cemeteries on our route

On The Longest Day Tour we always visit Colleville American Cemetery (50 mins).

On The Allied Triangle Tour & brief stop can also be made enroute at The Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery or Ryes Commonwealth Cemetery to allow clients to pay their respects. We never visit the three cemeteries in a day and the short 15-min pause is allocated as freetime (see below).

Unlike the vast Colleville Cemetery, these small cemeteries are directly accessible from the roadside. Therefore as soon as we park and exit the vehicle we’re already ‘in’ the cemetery grounds. Although 15 mins may seem short, it is still sufficient time for strolling around the cemetery grounds, paying respects and signing the visitor’s book.

Note: There will be no guide ‘presentations’ at these smaller cemeteries, and clients wishing more time on-site, with a formal brief presentation, are encouraged to consider one of our Half-Day Private Tours.

Options available on 'The Allied Triangle' Group Tour

This tour has been specifically designed with in-built flexibility, providing individual clients the oppportunity to spend 1 hour inside the Juno Beach Visitor Centre as an alternative to a 1-hr Arromanches visit.

Both locations are 1hr ‘freetime/lunch’ stops. We will return to Juno and pick clients up before meeting back up with the main group an hour later.

Similarly during freetime at Arromanches clients can opt to visit the 360 Circular Cinema (30 mins) or the Mulberry Harbour Visitor Centre (40 mins), grabbing lunch-on-the-go, or may instead simply opt to take some ‘time-out’ for a 1-hr sit-down lunch overlooking the stunning Gold Beach Mulberry Harbour.

Half Day Private Tours: 4hrs

Half-Day: Private Tours [Mon – Fri]

*Suitable as a daytrip from Paris / Caen (Mon – Fri)

Our relatively short 4-hr Half-Day Private Tours are designed to be easier-going on the legs than full-day tours and as such are ideal for families with young children, for the elderly, or for clients who would simply find a full-day Tour exhausting!

We still thoroughly recommend choosing TWO of our Half-Day Tours as a full-day Mix & Match Tour, particularly for those clients who wish to take part in an immersive touring experience, one that will stay etched in their minds for years to come. Bear in mind too that YOU decide the pace on all of our tours…and we will go out of our way to make sure you never feel rushed regardless of your chosen tour.

Please also notice that three of our half-day tours are offered only on a Mix & Match basis; they have been designed as flexible options in a full-day Mix & Match tour (See the Half-Day Private Tours page for more info).

Half Day Private Tours: Schedule

Afternoon Tour Schedule

2. Half-Day: Tour Bravo – British Sector

3. Half-Day: Tour Charlie – Canadian Sector

4. Half-Day: ‘Bayeux’ – Bayeux Sightseeing: Bayeux Tapestry, Bayeux Cathedral & freetime last-minute shopping.

Cost: €320 + €10 p/p – Max 8 clients.

*Reminder: We regret that due to transit times to The Merville Battery, or to Utah Beach, Tour Delta (British Airborne) and Tour Echo (American Airborne) are NOT suitable as standalone half-day tours. ‘Customize Me’ 4-hr flexible Chauffeur Service is only available as part of a Mix & Match Tour.

Airborne Tours: Flexible Options

The US and British Airborne landings preceeded the D-Day Infantry Division Landings by 6 hrs. On the Eastern flank, the British 6th Airborne Division, and on the Western flank, the 101st & 82nd US Airborne Divisions (18,000 men in total).

Tour Delta (British Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Bravo’ or ‘Customize Me’ as a full-day Mix & Match Tour.

Tour Echo (American Airborne): Is only available with ‘Tour Alpha’ or ‘Customize Me’ as a full-day Mix & Match Tour

We strongly urge Airborne enthusiasts to consider booking a full-day US Airborne or full-day British Airborne Tour, using our Premium Chauffeur Service (See our 2019, 75th Anniversary Special Offer below), since it would allow for greater distances and much greater flexibility than is currently available via a semi-fixed tour – E.g. a ten-hour day. There are simply so many variables that it would be impossible to even design an Airborne Tour that would be to every client’s liking. Therefore we will happily customize an Airborne Tour, and work seamlessly with you until you’re satisfied before you book.
