Your drive through the picturesque Normandy countryside takes you to the Caen Memorial, devoted to illustrations and films about the Second World War and the Normandy landings of June 1944.

After lunch at the Memorial, visit the Pointe du Hoc, a German defense position that was heroically taken by US soldiers during World War II. Continue to the American cemetery of Saint-Laurent, the final resting place of almost 10,000 soldiers. You will also have free time at Omaha Beach to reflect on the site's moving history and visit the Omaha Beach Visitor Center, which describes the American soldiers' operations on the famous beach in June 1944.

Before returning to Paris, stop at the Canadian Memorial at Juno beach and Arromanches to see the remains of the artificial landing harbor that was built by the Allies in less than 15 days.

The excursion was expensive but very worth it. I took my dad who has read a lot about D-Day and this is great way to see a lot for just a day trip from Paris. If I could do it again, I might consider doing a two or even 3 trip. If you are hesitant to go in the winter time-dont be! Our group of 8 were the only individuals at Point Du Hoc and there were only about 2 dozen folks in the entire American Cemetery. The tour itself makes things very easy for you, with the pickup and drop off. The guide wad knowledgeable and funny and offered to take us to other beaches or a local town after lunch. It was the highlight of our week long trip to Paris and if you are American/English/Canadian or Australian you will feel a deep sense of pride, something I had not intended to feel on a vacation to a foreign country.

Ian, our tour guide was wonderful and all that we saw was fantastic. I picked this tour because my husband loves military history. He knows a ton and he was thrilled with all that he saw and Ian's knowledge. Ian confirmed what he already knew but learned new history too. The meal was fabulous too. We would definitely book another tour with you again. Thank you for a memorable day.
