    What to Expect
    This private Normandy tour from Caen allows you to choose what World War II sites you visit and how long you spend at each one. There are many D-Day sites to visit, and your expert guide offers unique insights into each one, no matter what sites you choose.

    The beaches of Normandy – now known as the D-Day beaches – were invaded by more than 16,000 Allied troops on the nights of June 5 and 6, 1944. Soon, the beaches along the coast of Normandy saw heavy fighting between Allied forces and the Germans. These brutal battles helped lead to the eventual end of the war.

    During this private Normandy tour, choose from a number of potential sites to create your own itinerary.

    See the most famous landing beaches, such as Omaha Beach – which saw some of the deadliest fighting – or Utah Beach, the first the Allies secured. Pay your respects at the American Cemetery near Omaha Beach, where more than 9,300 soldiers are buried, or the Airborne Museum of Saint-Mere-Eglise.

    See Sword Beach, where British and Free French soldiers made their advances, moving from there to capture Pegasus Bridge. Pay your respects at the Commonwealth Military Cemeteries, tour the Merville Battery Museum, or visit the Hillman Bunker Complex near the town of Colleville-Montgomery.

    Head for Juno Beach, where the Canadian forces invaded, to see the Juno Beach Center and the Canadian Cemetery near Reviers and Veny-sur-Mer. Visit Ardenne Abbey, a 12th-century abbey where 11 Canadian prisoners of war were executed.

    The itinerary is yours to sculpt, with each option offering wonderful opportunities to put history in context and honor those who fought and died on these beaches in Normandy.
