D-Day Normandy Beaches Private Tour Highlights (from Bayeux)

 

Enjoy a D-Day Normandy Private Tour that will deepen your history knowledge around this important historical event that marks the commonly known D-Day.  On June 6, 1944, the Allied forces landed on the sandy beaches of Normandy marking the beginning of the liberation of the german-occupied France and the end of WWII, hence the use of the"D" which stands for "departure", "decision".

 

Your day trip will start at Courseulles Sur Mer where more than 14,000 Canadian soldiers stormed its 8-kilometer stretch of beach 6 June 1944. Later, you will stop by Croix sur Lorraine where you will visit the de Gaulle’s memorial park and learn more about him.

 

Following the tour, you private english-speaking driver will take you to Arromanches and its Port Winston, a reminder of the remarkable technical feat of taking 600,000 tonnes of concrete and equipment across the Channel in wartime to build an allies base.

 

A little further, visit the last place of the D-Day Normandy Private Tour at Colleville Sur Mer and Pointe Du Hoc to visit the American cemetery. Pointe Du Hoc is a clifftop location situated between Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east, it stands on 30m tall cliffs overlooking the sea. You can also visit the German cemetery whose dark gravestones are a stark contrast to the all-white tombstones of the American cemetery.
