Paris: Normandy D-Day Beaches Guided Day Trip with Lunch

1. Paris: Normandy D-Day Beaches Guided Day Trip with Lunch

Explore the beautiful Normandy countryside on a fully guided day trip of the D-Day landing sites, and discover the rich traditions of Normandy at a typical cider and Calvados farm. The tour departs Paris for the historical battlefields and landing beaches along the coast, including the Utah Beach Museum, housed in an original German bunker on the very beach where the first American troops landed. Learn about the complicated planning behind Operation Overlord, and hear touching stories of ordinary men and women whose actions shaped the face of Europe as it is known today. The museum also offers unparalleled views over Utah Beach and is home to one of the only remaining B-26 airplanes in the world. Enjoy a Norman-style lunch of freshly prepared seasonal produce in a restaurant overlooking the port of Grandcamp Maisy. Next, stop at a traditional cider-making orchard, and taste the ciders and Calvados (apple brandy) typical to the region in a 17th-century barn. After that, travel to the Pointe du Hoc to see the German cliff-top defense that was heroically taken by US Rangers during the D-Day landings. Overlooking the English Channel, the site remains much as it was over half a century ago, with original German fortifications and the crater scars of bombs. Pay your respects at the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer, located on a bluff overlooking Omaha Beach. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., son of President Roosevelt, and a Medal of Honor recipient, is buried here, along with almost 10,000 soldiers.

Even though it is an expensive trip, it is worth the money! It is great learning about so much history and being able to see it first handed! However, I will be honest and it was very rushed. I am glad we were able to go, but it is very quick and there is not enough time to read everything and fully appreciate the museum. The lunch was great, but I just wish I could of had another hour or two at the museum to fully take it all in.

This was a well planned tour with excellent and informative tour guides. The time at each stop was just enough but not too much. I would definitely recommend this to others.

This is a great trip to see Normandy in a quick way. Kind of quick moving but just enough time atveach stop. Our guide Amad was great. The visit to taste cider was a treat.

Highly recommend this tour! Well worth your money and time.
