Private Day Tour: Normandy Landing Beaches from Paris

About this activity
Start your day trip with pickup from your Paris hotel in the morning for the 3-hour drive to the Normandy coast with your private guide, traveling by air-conditioned minivan (either a Mercedes Viano or VW Caravelle).
You'll take one break during the drive to purchase snacks or drinks, if you wish (own expense), before arriving at your first stop, one of the most emblematic places in Normandy, where a small group of rangers managed to take a German battery strategically placed on top of a cliff.
From there, continue to Omaha Beach, perhaps the best-known of the D-Day landing beaches, where you can see monuments and memorials such as 'The Braves' and one dedicated to the members of the National Guard who landed with the 29th division. Then head to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer, where you can explore the visitors' center and museum before walking along the rows of white crosses that honor American troops who died during WWII.
Next, visit Arromanches and Juno Beach before making the return drive to Paris, where your day trip ends.

My husband and I had both been to Normandy before- This time, we returned with our children, ages 15, 13 and 9. We opted for the private tour, in light of having children along. Our guide was Milan, who passionately, articulately, and accurately was able to set the stage for each battle, break down landscapes, strategies, historical significance of each location in such a way that we all walked away knowing so much more about D-Day and the battle for France. As a driver, he was an artist in both traversing the countryside and the crazy city streets of Paris. I had never driven around the Arc de Triumph before, but there we were. This trip was worth every penny, and truly changed my children's view of war, loss, battle, heroes, etc. Thank you.
