Overview

Operated by ?

This touching tour of Normandy is ideal for history buffs and World War II aficionados eager to personally explore the sacred sites of Operation Overlord, the codename for the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944. On this stirring tour, you’ll see where more than 150,000 mostly American, British, and Canadian troops stormed 50 miles of fiercely defended coastline, securing an Allied victory and gaining a foothold in the fight against Nazi Germany. Your expert Tour Director will lead you to the many significant sites of that fateful day, including the cliffs scaled by troops at Pointe du Hoc as well as the assault shores of Utah, Juno, and Omaha Beach. You’ll have time to explore the movingmemorials and museums of each site, including the emotive American Military Cemetery and Memorial. Start and end this incredible journey in magnificent Paris.
