Highlights
    What to Expect
    Depart from your centrally located Bayeux hotel and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for Pointe du Hoc, the site of a brutal attack on a German battery on D-Day. On arrival, gaze at an eerie lunar landscape of scattered remnants of ancient fortifications and then return to your vehicle for the scenic drive to Omaha Beach. 

    Disembark at the famous World War II site and listen as your guide reveals the brutal history of the battlefield that saw the most D-Day casualties. Pay tribute to fallen soldiers at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial and marvel at interminable rows of headstones commemorating courageous soldiers. 

    Head next to Pegasus Bridge, the site of one of the most successful D-Day operations, and capture picturesque photographs of the Orne river and canal as you stroll towards the sea at Caen. 

    Continue onto the Merville Battery Museum to discover the tales surrounding the 6th British Airborne and then arrive at Sword Beach, a sandy stretch upon which the British 3rd Infantry Division landed on their way to Caen. Then, descend into the underground bunkers of the Hillman Bunkers to empathise with brave soldiers fighting in claustrophobic conditions. 

    Conclude your moving tour at Bayeux War Cemetery, the largest WWII cemetery of the Commonwealth soldiers in France, and feel emotionally stirred as you see graves containing more than 4,500 soldiers killed in WWII.

    Relax during the journey back to Bayeux, where the tour concludes.
