Following pickup from your accommodation in Paris, board a Mercedes Benz van for your day trip outlining the history of D-Day.
Begin at Pointe du Hoc, where Colonel James Earl Rudder commanded his 225 US Rangers to climb the 100-foot (30-meter) cliffs under enemy fire. Travel back in time and imagine the scenario through your licensed tour guide's engaging commentary. The men managed to destroy the 155-mm guns perched on the cliff to save the lives of thousands of men landing on Omaha Beach. Learn about the battle that took place there and how it earned its nickname, 'Bloody Omaha'.
Stop for lunch (own expense) at a traditional French restaurant before continuing your tour with insights into the German perspective on D-Day. Continue on for a guided tour of the American cemetery and some free time at the visitor's center at Colleville-sur-Mer.
If time permits, visit gun battery of Longues sur Mer and Arromanches. Canadian travelers can request to stop at Juno Beach.
Your private 12-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your Paris accommodation.

Our trip was expensive because they picked us up at 7:00 am at the hotel fir a three hour drive. Vwe then spent a full day touring. We got back to the hotel after 7:00 pm following the three hour return drive. Our guide presented info in the drive both ways. Yes. It was expensive, but we felt it was worth it. Uf we had gone overselves, we would have missed a lot.
