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.

My 16 yr old daughter and I enjoyed this day trip to Normandy. Adrian was a great guide who was fun, knowledgeable, and very dedicated to his profession. He found answers to questions guests had that he did not know immediately. He was friendly, spoke great English, and we enjoyed spending the day with him. The sites were interesting and gave both me and my daughter the historical experience and education we were looking for. We wanted to do Normandy in a day, but needed to leave and return to Paris. If you are in the same boat, I recommend this trip, and specifically Adrian.

Amazing, amazing, amazing. I have always been a proud American. After this trip, I am even more so. The bravery, sacrifice and selflessness of these soldiers and the courage of the leadership is more than incredible. I got emotional on this tour several times. Our tour guide Ollie (Oliver) was unbelievable in terms of his grasp of the area, D-Day and history in general. He was so passionate and appreciative of the US sacrifice on that day. Full disclosure, it is a long day but sooo worth every minute. Ask for Ollie. This tour (and managing tour company) is more than first rate.

Our tour was with Blue Fox and our host was Amaury (Mo-Mo). We saw multiple historic sites, visited the Overlord Museum, and had time at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach. Amaury was a perfect host. He shared much information about the sites while still giving us time to respectfully visit at our own pace. We stopped for a great lunch at a local restaurant and later enjoyed a cider tasting. Our whole family got a lot out of our day 75 years after the D-Day Invasion that turned the tide on the war in Europe. Don't miss out on this!

The tour guide was very informative, provided good perspective on history, excellent presentations and great driver. I would recommend this tour and guide. Well worth the time to experience Normandy area and see the terrain the solders had to cross during the invasion of D- Day.
