About this activity
Meet your private guide during a 9am pickup at your accommodation or the local train station in Rouen, then take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan and head onward to the beaches of Normandy — where so much of the violent fighting of WWII took place.

During your 8-hour tour, visit the port at Arromanches — constructed by British forces to help land the Allied troops in June 1944. Enjoy lunch in a local restaurant (own expense) and admire panoramic views over the famous beaches.

Visit the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer with your private guide and learn of the many Allied soldiers who laid down their lives in battle. Next, head to Longues-sur-Mer to see the batteries the Germans used to protect the coast from the Allies.

Head onward to the Pointe du Hoc and listen as your private guide explains how the how the U.S soldiers climbed the cliffs to disarm the German defence. Time permitting, perhaps visit Sainte-Mère-Église — where the first Allied paratroopers of WWII landed — and learn of the fighting that took place here those years ago.

When your tour comes to an end, return in comfort to your hotel or the train station in Rouen at approximately 6pm.

Our Guide was terrific and made us very comfortable spending the time at the beach. He was extremely knowledgeable and felt like we had known him forever. Good driver, nice van --had water for us. Non smoker.
