After departing Paris in the early morning by minivan, travel to the French region of Normandy for your D-Day landing beaches tour.

Stop at Pointe du Hoc, 90-foot (27-meter) cliffs where 225 rangers landed on the morning of June 6, 1944, and then continue to Colleville-sur-Mer to visit the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, which overlooks Omaha Beach and is home to more than 9,000 white crosses perfectly aligned on 170 acres. A chapel and memorial add the finishing touches to this moving site that allows visitors to reflect on the price of war.

Then visit other WWII locations such as Arromanches and the vestiges of the artificial Mulberry harbor, Longues-sur-Mer, and the German artillery battery, which gave the Allied troops a lot of pushback on the morning of June 6th. This is the only coastal battery to have kept its guns, giving a picture of what an Atlantic wall gun emplacement was like.

Your day trip ends with return to Paris.

Guide was excellent, paced the day perfectly, with breaks every couple of hours. Was a wealth of knowledge, explaining everything as we went along. Know ahead of time that its a full day - 6:30 to 6:30.

Excellent tour. The guide met us at a central location. We traveled about 3 hours in a comfortable van to Normandy. Along the way the driver/guide pointed out several interesting sites and explained the history of the area and a lot about the WW II. We visited Omaha Beach, Utah Beach and the American cemetery during the tour. The guide lead us the each location and explained the highlights and gave us free time to look and explore on our own. The lunch stop was was reasonable and the food was excellent. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

The most thought provoking and memorable experience of our two week trip to London and Paris. Our guide/driver was amazing and provided safe transport and exceptional knowledge the entire day. All of the communications from La Vacanza Travel were timely and the entire trip went like clockwork. I highly recommend using their service for this trip.
