  • Cover key WWII D-Day landing sites in a day from Paris

What to Expect
Your tour begins in central Paris, where you board an air-conditioned minivan destined for Normandy. As you travel, your guide tells of the bravery and strategies behind the WWII D-Day landings. Hear soldiers’ personal stories, and learn how the Allied June 1944 campaign changed the course of the war. Your guide uses military maps and photos to provide a detailed picture of the operation, and show the difference between what was planned and what happened. Visit the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial before continuing to the Overlord Museum to view its exhibitions on the planning and execution of the landings. Next, head for Omaha Beach, where US and British troops landed, and then visit one of the defensive German bunkers to discover how the Allies managed to neutralize them. After a tasting of Normandy apple cider, your tour concludes at the departure point in Paris.

Tej was a great guide. He was knowledgeable, kind, and funny. We saw so many historical sites in Normandy. I’d recommend boots over sneakers if you go in spring/fall bc we had a drizzly and windy day. Great tour!

We went with Olivia. Our tour was everything we expected. Beautiful sites, and good interaction with locals at the places we stopped. I wanted a small group tour and Blue Fox has just what we wanted. (6 people on our trip.) Our guide answered all of our questions and was fun.
