AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE!
If you wish to tribute to these Thousands of Heroes who offered their lives for our freedom, this is the perfect tour. We would aim Caen directly to visit the Memorial de Caen. This Museum is regarded as the best WW II Museum in France. Established in 1988, the Caen Memorial focuses on the events leading up to and after D-Day.
Visitors walk through an excellent 5 parts presentation:
- the lead-up to World War II
- The Battle of Normandy
- Two powerful video presentations
- The Cold War
- And the outgoing movement for peace
From Caen, we will drive to the beaches, British Sector, like Sword Beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach, to stop in Arromanches. Arromanches, a modest seaside resort, owes its fame to the fantastic “Mulberry” operation which was an integral part of the Allied Landing in Europe in June 1944. This artificial port was one of the most extraordinary maritime achievements of the whole war.

We will continue our journey following the coast to Colleville-sur-Mer, and visit The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial opened in May 2007 to tell the Story of the 9.387 Americans buried there and put The D-Day landings and follow-on battle in Europe in perspective as one of the greatest military achievements of all time. The Cemetery is located on a cliff overhanging Omaha Beach.
Passing small charming villages, we will visit “La Pointe du Hoc“, the famous limestone plateau heavily fortified by the Germans, climbed by the 2nd. Rangers Battalion who took the position by assault at draw on June 6th., but not without heavy losses. The Point is one of the few places in Normandy which still gives the impression of having been a battlefield.

Latest Customer's Opinions:
Thank you Mike for taking my clients on a wonderful took of Bruges. They felt so fortunate you would meet them at their cruise ship, so right away the history lesson on Bruges began, and they did not have to worry about getting from the port to town. They loved spending their time with someone so well informed and so personable.
