Retrace the steps of the brave men who took part in the largest military operation in the history of the world on this unforgettable day trip from Paris. You’ll walk the sands of Omaha Beach, peer over the cliffs at the Pointe du Hoc, and go inside of old German bunkers with massive guns still pointing towards England.

You’ll learn the details of the attack plan when you explore the Operation Overlord Museum and have the chance to pay your respects to those who sacrificed everything when you visit the American Cemetery with its 10,000 white crosses standing in rows.

On June 6th, 1944 an unprecedented event took place on the Beaches of Normandy. It was a highly detailed and extremely difficult offensive attack on the Third Reich by more than 150,000 Allied troops arriving by sea and air. The epic battle waged on D-Day was crucial to the liberation of France, the outcome of WWII, and the future of the free world.

Whether you’re a military history buff or someone who is just curious about D-Day, our guide will share the day’s events so you can better appreciate the remarkable acts of bravery and selfless sacrifice which took place on the beaches of Normandy.

German Bunkers and Omaha Beach

Meet up in the morning with your guide close to the Arch de Triomphe in Paris and head off in a small group of 8 people to retrace the amazing events of D-Day and the Normandy Invasion. The Beaches of Normandy are only 2 hours away from Paris with lots of beautiful French countryside in between.

Arriving in Normandy you’ll explore part of the “Atlantic Wall” built by the Third Reich as you follow your guide into a battery of German bunkers. You’ll see and touch the huge guns that still point towards England and learn about the many extreme fortifications the Allied troops had to fight against when they landed on D-Day.

You’ll then drive to Omaha Beach where the most difficult and impressive attack happened. It’s called “Bloody Omaha” by WWII veterans because in a matter of hours almost 2,500 men lost their lives on this beach. Despite being pinned down by heavy artillery, the surviving soldiers fought with bravery and ingenuity to overcome the enemy.

Operation Overlord Museum and the Pointe du Hoc

Diving deeper into the details of the Invasion of Normandy you’ll visit the Overlord Museum and discover its unparalleled collection. You’ll have an hour of free time inside to see personal items from soldiers, heavy artillery, and other equipment that actually took part in the invasion.

After your visit to the museum it will be lunch time. The guide will take you to a nearby restaurant that has many local specialties such as French barbecued meats, different salads, as well as savory and sweet crepes. You’ll have one hour to rest and enjoy your lunch.

Then you’ll visit the Pointe du Hoc. Walking on the battle scarred earth where allied bombs exploded, you’ll make your way to the edge of the 100ft tall cliffs. Peering over the edge you’ll wonder how the Army Rangers accomplished the impossible task of scaling the cliffs under heavy enemy fire without any back up.

The American Cemetery

Leaving the Pointe du Hoc behind you’ll enjoy a short break at a family owned Cider House. There you’ll have free tastings of the famous Normandy hard cider and Calvados that were made locally. Anyone who prefers not to drink alcohol can enjoy an outstanding apple juice.

To finish your adventure on the coast of Normandy you will visit the American Cemetery. The guide will share many incredible acts of bravery and heroism that individual men performed and show you where these men rest today. You’ll be able to pay your respects to Medal of Honor heroes, Theodore Roosevelt Jr, and the Niland brothers who inspired the movie Saving Private Ryan.

The ride back to Paris will take a little over 2 hours long and will include a stop for you to use the restroom and stretch your legs. You’ll arrive back in Paris at about 8pm and say goodbye to your guide at the Arch de Triomphe.

While this tour’s content was not planned out with kids in mind we do allow children that are aged at least 7 years old to join it with one of their parents.
