Sam was a great guide. He not only knows what he's talking about but clearly has a passion for history. This day trip out of the city was definitely worth it.

Guide was Awesome and the whole thing is amazing!

The tour will begin in Central Paris. Your guide will accompany you on board the air-conditioned bus that will take you to the sites. The guide will set the scene for you by narrating intriguing stories of World War II along the way. Feel free to quench your curiosity by asking any questions.

Utah Beach

Utah Beach, located on the same beach where the first American troops landed and is housed in an original German bunker, will be your first stop. Experience the opportunity to learn about the intricate planning that went into Operation Overlord at this globally acclaimed museum. Here, you will get to see an original B-26 plane, soldiers’ letters, and personal possessions that speak volumes about the traumatic experiences they went through.

Optional dining experience and a visit to Omaha Beach

Bask in the apple orchards of Normandy. You’ll even get a chance to visit a 17th-century barn and try out some apple brandy, locally known as Calvados. A 2-course lunch will follow this in a local restaurant. After that, you'll travel to Omaha Beach, the site of the most challenging and spectacular attack. WWII veterans refer to this beach as "Bloody Omaha" since nearly 2,500 men died there in a few hours. The men who survived were pinned down by heavy artillery, yet they battled valiantly and creatively to defeat the enemy.

Ponte du Hoc

The next stop is at Pont de Hoc which is undoubtedly the most beautiful location of the tour. The colossal cliffs that overlook the English Channel are an incredible sight. Discover the history of the valiant actions that occurred there as you stand atop the Pointe du Hoc cliffs overlooking Normandy's stunning beaches. As your guide explains the specifics of the historic Battle of Normandy, you may view real military artifacts like bunkers and bomb holes.

Last but not least, you will visit the American Cemetery. Ten-thousand white crosses dot the landscape, emphasizing the sheer number of lives lost in the war. You'll have time to look around the cemetery, visit the wall of the missing, an awe-inspiring memorial, and look down upon Omaha, the beach where the Allies faced the stiffest resistance and suffered the most casualties.
