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.

Excellent. We learnt a lot.

Reviewed by: Susan B, July 2016

As others have mentioned, this is a highly recommended trip. It makes a number of stops so I felt that got a good overview of the battlegrounds and the battle. A couple of tips to help- these stops are all memorials etc so there is not much time or availability of refreshments- this is a good tour to pack a extra bottle of water for the afternoon. If you want to look up a specific grave in the American Cemetery, I would find it on the internet and study it where it is so that you can go directly when you visit the cemetery. There really is not a lo of time to do a search and locate. The tour is a full 14 hours as it takes about 3 hours to get there and back plus the time to drive between the different stops. The bus was a double decker so we were not overly crowded and it did have a toilet within the bus. it made it a comfortable ride.
