Your day trip starts in Paris at a central location, where you'll meet your guide and board your comfortably equipped van for the drive out of the city, heading west to the French region of Normandy.

Throughout your tour, your guide helps you to appreciate the stories of bravery and courage that took place on the D-Day landing beaches of Normandy at the end of WWII. By the end of the day, you'll understand how important this battle was to the end of the war and have insight into some of the soldiers who fought and died to put an end to Hitler’s plans for Europe and the world.

At the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, pay your respects to fallen soldiers, and hear stories from your guide about the heroes who fought on the D-Day beaches. Visit the Operation Overlord Museum to see its historical collection of items retracing the planning and events of the liberation of Europe, and then head to Omaha Beach, where U.S. and British soldiers landed on June 6, 1944.

Explore one of the many German bunkers that the Allied troops had to neutralize, and learn about the difficulties the soldiers faced in their battle with the Nazis. Then enjoy the lighter side of Normandy with a tasting of its famous apple cider.

During the day, your guide uses visual aids such as military maps, plans, and photos to help you understand the planning of D-Day, the effects the battle had on the liberation of France and the end of the war, personal stories, and historical battle facts about what the soldiers were told to do and what they encountered when they landed. Your day trip ends with return to Paris.

Awesome guide and tour....highly recommend. Had umbrellas for us. Felt sorry we tracked mud in his van because of the rain.

This was the highlight of our France trip. The tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Pablo made it a very enjoyable experience. The tour is in an 8 person van which was nice, clean, and comfortable. A caution that this could be uncomfortable for a larger person so something to keep in mind. One recommendation to Blu Fox Tours would be to update the Van's with USB ports so phones can be recharged...it is a long day with lots of pics. That aside, this tour was worth every penny.

Guide was informative, respectful, cheerful and generally delightful to be with. We were broadsided during outing (no fault of guide). He handled professionally and thankfully no one injured.
Content and sites visited were awe inspiring. Visiting OmahaBeach Cementary at 4pm to watch the lowering of US flag as taps was played was sobering.
Highly recommend

Worth every single penny. Very personable and knowledgeable guide. Very comfortable ride. It was absolutely worth the extra money to be in a van verses on the bus with a large group.
