ORGANIZATION OF D-DAY TOURS FROM PARIS
During World War 2, most parts of France were occupied by Germans. Normandy seemed to be the perfect place to start freeing the country from this regime. The assault of the 5 beaches (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword beach) and the Normandy war represent a turning point in the war. On this day, Germans came to realize D-Day was a real invasion, not a diversion.
Experience a memorable private D-Day guided tour with our day trip to Normandy from Paris with our expert driver-guide.
Visiting Normandy beaches will make you relive a very important day that marked France History.
You will truly realize the sheer size of Operation Overlord: 156,000 men landing on a 50-mile stretch (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword) including the paratroopers.
Reliving D-Day: Normandy beaches tours from Paris
We are pleased to offer two different tour experiences. The private D-Day Normandy guided tour will be perfect for you if you want to learn every detail of this memorable day. Those who are more curious by the role of Americans in this war will enjoy the American D-Day Normandy landing beaches tour. Note that we organize a special Paris day tour to the Normandy beaches for our Canadian and British clients. You will discover Juno beach and the Canadian D-Day museum, the gun battery at Longues sur Mer and the artificial harbour, code-named Mulberry B at Gold beach (Arromanches). We can also take you to Sword Beach and Pegasus Bridge in Benouville.
