Excursion d'une journée sur les plages du débarquement et les champs de bataille de Normandie
Ne passez pas à côté de cette excursion d'une journée, poignante et inoubliable, sur les champs de bataille de Normandie et les plages du débarquement de la Seconde guerre mondiale. Vous visiterez des sites de guerre célèbres ainsi que le cimetière américain, découvrirez les plages historiques et appréhenderez la guerre du point de vue des alliés et des citoyens français qu'ils libérèrent.
À quoi pouvez-vous vous attendre ?
Votre traversée de la campagne pittoresque normande vous conduira au Mémorial de Caen, consacré aux documents et films sur la Seconde Guerre mondiale et le débarquement de juin 1944.
Après avoir déjeuné au Mémorial, vous visiterez la pointe du Hoc, une position de défense occupée par les Allemands mais qui fut récupérée par les soldats américains pendant la Seconde guerre mondiale. Continuez jusqu'au cimetière américain de Saint-Laurent, dernière demeure de quelques 10 000 soldats. Vous aurez un peu de temps libre à Omaha Beach pour vous plonger dans l'histoire du site et visiter le centre des visiteurs d'Omaha Beach, qui décrit les opérations des soldats américains sur la célèbre plage en juin 1944.
Avant de retourner à Paris, arrêtez-vous au Mémorial canadien de Juno Beach et à Arromanches pour voir les vestiges du port de débarquement artificiel construit par les alliés en moins de 15 jours.

Avis Clients :
If you have time, this trip is well worth it.
great tour very moving. The guide was very informative and pleasant. Would highly recommend this.
Our guide was great, she was knowledgeable and helpful. It was a busy day but didn't feel too rushed except at the beach stops though I understand why that has to be for driving time constraints. An excellent job fitting a lot in for those of us who have only a day to spend seeing as much as possible!
Our tour guide Chris was great. She was well-versed on the history of Normandy and the D-Day beaches, and also witty. We enjoyed this trip very much, and felt it was a good value for the dollar. My only constructive criticism is, I did note when booking specific dietary restrictions that didn't seem to get translated over to the actual restaurant. When we notified Chris, she handled it with ease. Overall, we had a really great day trip, and I would recommend this trip.
An excellent tour covering the history and sites of the D-Day landings of the Americans, British and Canadians. Our guide Christen was very thorough and knowledgeable and she made the tour very enjoyable. Highly recommend.
Very nice day trip out of Paris. Knowledgeable tour guide and the group size was just right. It's just a day trip. So, don't expect to see all the beaches and spend a lot of time there. You need more time to do that. This was my second time to Normandy-the first time, my family and I spent about a week and took our time experiencing each beach and the museums for each. This is a good introductory visit.
Such a memorable and moving experience. The ride across the country was beautiful as the canola flowers were in full bloom and were absolutely gorgeous. It was very impactful to see the beautifully manicured grounds with so many memorials.
The tour guide was excellent kept us informed on the background and historical significance of each stop. The driver and bus were all excellent plenty of room to stretch out. The provided lunch included wine and was delicious. The tour covered all of the major point of interest, Unfortunately time was limited at each stop preventing a more through visit but given the distances needed to cover from Paris to all of the Stops would have been impossible to do in one day otherwise. We truly enjoyed the tour and
Our only regret was not making better use of our free time at the Caen museum as there was so much to see but little time.
Military historians will love this tour. Nice balance between historical significance and scenery.
This tour was everything we hoped for and more. Our guide, Vincent, was amazingly knowledgeable, and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed his commentary and appreciated his detailed explanations. The included lunch was incredible! We highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful trip! Long day with much to see and visit but worth every moment. The Caen museum set the scene for the day as well as providing a very complete lunch. Visiting Pointe du Hoc with its 100 foot cliffs and German concrete bunkers gives an understanding of the commitment and bravery shown by some many young troops. Walking on Omaha beach and seeing the width of the beach at low tide, combined with German fortifications on the bluffs, is humbling. A visit the American cemetery topped off the day to salute those that gave all during the invasion. The tour was well paced and the guides historical overview enhanced the trip.
It was a 14 hour day but well worth it! It put the exclamation point on a great week long stay in Paris. Check in and loading was very efficient. Be there a half hour before departure. Seats were comfortable and there was a washroom on the bus. Our guide did a great job in recapping how WW 2 began and what led up to D Day. It put everything into context. Stops were well timed. I highly suggest that everyone adhere to the timing. Waiting an extra 10 minutes for one person takes 10 minutes off the next stop for everyone. Lunch was amazing. Something there for everyone. Plus we got to sit and chat with people around us and it made it more personal. The stops and ride through the small villages really made the history come to life. Well done!

This was an absolutely wonderful experience! Our guide, Elisa. was lovely and shared insights all along the way. She picked us up right on the dot at our hotel early, like 6:30, gave us broad background on Normandy and the areas we were driving though. The visit to Omaha Beach was very moving. My father was in WWII, and I had an uncle who was at Sainte Mere Egise D Day 3. All of our lives we have heard about and studied WWII. Seeing the actual beaches, the bunkers and the graves was a very moving and important experience for us. After touring the beaches, we had a truly exceptional lunch at a old country estate, with the usual divine French wine, which helped with some napping on the drive home after a long day. My husband and I would absolutely recommend this tour. We went in a van with 8 people, and it seemed a lot more manageable than a big bus tour. A big thank you to Elisa! I know she does other tours in and around Paris, and if we are so lucky to visit Paris again, we will look for these folks.
This was a very full but incredible day especially with our tour guide. She was extremely informative during the lengthy drive and at the 3 beaches that we visited. DDay and the following almost 3 month long battle and the terrain and obstacles they survived and lives sacrificed was felt during this visit.
Truly a humbling experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and made a long trip more exciting with his stories to and from Normandy.
Great guide, very knowledgeable. Enjoyed the entire experience
Standing at Pointe Du Hoc gives you an amazing connection with all that fought there. The American Cemetery gives you the scope of the cost of freedom.
Loved this tour! My husband picked this trip because he is always reading about WWII and wanted to see and place some of the places he always read about. I found it interesting seeing the war from another perspective. We always read about the United States experiences, but I enjoyed seeing the French and German side. We were not disappointed. Our tour guides we extremely nice and shared quite a bit of information along the way. The museum we stopped at was very well done and the lunch was very good. The stops at the beaches and cemetery were informative and we had just enough time at each one and didn't feel rushed.
It was a very well organized tour and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the history of WWII.
Very good -- we had enough time at each stop and good guides. We had booked a pickup at our hotel and they arrived shortly after the scheduled time despite the pouring rain ... it was very good to not have to deal with a cab at that hour, and in that weather. Fortunately the skies cleared and we had a beautiful day for our trip. And, the lunch at the museum was great!!!
Thorough, fascinating, and moving.
Although a long day, it was most definitely worth it. Our guide, Sandrine, was superb, providing information en route to Normandy as well as on site. Extremely friendly, excellent English, very knowledgeable. I wish we had had her as our guide on a different tour a few days later. Although we covered a lot of territory we never felt rushed by our guide.Highly recommend this tour.
My reason for going to France. They did not disappoint. Very humbling and well-organized/operated trip.
Great Experience - Great tour
Guide was friendly and knowledgeable - made the tour go along without a hitch.
Not sure what the process is for number of hours a bus driver can operate, although we did not go over the number of hours specified for the tour, it was rather strange we swapped bus drivers at the last hour of our trip. - I think the original bus driver missed out on his tips for the day, as we had no knowledge of his departure until it was happening. - He was a good guy!
