Description

Commemorate the bravery of the American soldiers who defended the Pointe du Hoc by visiting the historical sites of the American Cemetery in Coleville, the Visitor Center, Omaha Beach, the Arromanches, Gold Beach and Juno Beach. This tour will be initiated with pickups of the participants from their hotels in central Paris.

Travel comfortably aboard a luxury airconditioned minibus to the French region of Normandy where your first destination is located. First in the itinerary of this trip is a tour of the Pointe du Hoc. This raised mass of land overlooks the English Channel. To prevent the Germans from advancing, soldiers from the United States (ally of the French) recaptured the Pointe Du Hoc after scaling its cliffs. A tour of this cliff will enable you to climb through bunkers, walk through the cliffs scaled by the American soldiers, and observe the bomb craters.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the American Cemetery in Coleville. Pray for the departed souls of the 9,386 brave soldiers who fought against the Germans during the D-Day battles in Normandy. To understand the significance of the sacrifice of these soldiers even more, you will be given the chance to tour around the Visitor Center of the American Cemetery where you can be able to understand the intimate stories of the 10,944 people that this memorial is dedicated to. Discover the Omaha Beach which was used as one of the landing beaches during the D-Day battles.

Lunch will be enjoyed at the Ferme de la Rançonnière restaurant at the Crépon village.

After lunch, you will go on a trip to see the Arromanches artificial harbor. Also called as the Mulberry harbor, this harbor was built by the British during World War II as a way to transport goods from the supply ships off the coast of Normandy. Composed of 105,000 tons of steel, 144,000 tons of concrete, and 85,000 tons of ballast, this artificial harbor was able to accommodate 7,000 tons of vehicles and goods per day.

Last on the itinerary of this trip are detours to the Gold Beach and Juno Beach. These beaches were among the four landing beaches used during the D-Day landings of either the Canadian, American, or British armies.

This tour will end with the transfers back to hotels in Paris.

My 13 year old daughter and I had the pleasure of taking the Normandy D-Day Trip small group tour while visiting Paris in April 25. We opted for a Monday tour with a total of 8 travelers. What an amazing day! Our tour guide, Celine, was an incredible guide right from the moment she met us at the van. She was hospitable and oh so knowledgeable about the events leading up to D-Day, the invasion itself as well as the after effects. I think my daughter and I learned more than we ever could have through any other venue.

The tour began with a cab being sent to meet us at our rented apartment (if you stay on the left bank which is where our apartment was located, they send a cab to retrieve you and take you to Paris City Vision to meet your group. A cab will also take you back at the end of the tour. If you stay on the right bank, your tour guide will pick you up and drop you off in the van). The ride to the Normandy beaches will take between 3-3.5 hours however a rest stop of about 25 minutes is built in. We visited Pointe du Hoc, made a brief stop at Omaha Beach for photos and a quick walk on the beach, and then traveled to the American Cemetery where we were given about an hour to explore on our own. To say the sights are incredible is an understatement...such an incredible experience. After the cemetery, we stopped for lunch...and not just any lunch. We stopped at Ferme de la Ranconniere, a 15th century farm now converted to a hotel/restaurant, where we had a fabulous three course lunch consisting of an appetizer, a game hen prepared authentically French, and a dessert. All 8 of us agreed the lunch was a pleasant surprise! A 20 minute stop in the village of Arromanches For souvenirs and photos was next and from there we stopped at Juno Beach

A wonderful day and I highly recommend the small group tour as opposed to the large tour bus!
