    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Normandy, Normandy

    The very interesting part of France with a unique history that spans over a thousand years. History of Normandy shaped France as much as it did England, Europe and indeed the world as it is today.

    Duration: 6 hours

    Stop At: Pointe du Hoc, 14450 Cricqueville-en-Bessin France

    The most breathtaking aspect of the visit, where one can truly appreciate the scope of fighting and of the destruction that took place here. One is hard pressed to decide which is more admirable - the still visible traces of intensive bombing, or the courage it took to scale the cliffs and attack the strongly fortified bunkers and batteries.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Omaha Beach, Avenue de la Liberation, Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer France

    The most important landing site of the Allied Invasion. This is where the bulk of the fighting happened.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Cimetiere Americain de Colleville-sur-Mer, 14710 Colleville-sur-Mer France

    The contrast between the serenity, symmetry and harmony of this cemetery on one side, and the complete chaos of the "devil's theatre" on the landing sites, is awe-inspiring. The site of unique solemnity.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Musee du Debarquement Utah Beach, Utah Beach, 50480 Sainte-Marie-du-Mont France

    One of the five landing sites where the Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Caen, Caen, Calvados, Basse-Normandie, Normandy

    A city of considerable importance in the Normandy landing operation

    Stop At: Arromanches-les-Bains, France

    A picturesque and vivid example of courage, logistic prowess and ingenious engineering that were instrumental in making the Normandy Allied landing a success.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    It's a long day trip from Paris, but worth the trip. There were 5 of us on this trip: my teenaged son, my mother, myself, my adult cousin and my grandmother. With a private guide and driver, it made things so easy for all of us including my 92 year old grandmother. They took

    hi Carissa, Thanks for the kind words - indeed Normandy is a demanding visit with a lot of driving, but one well worth the effort on account of the unique historical value and importance. Especially if you have a knowledgeable guide to take you through all the important sites. You were very easy to work with and Isidora enjoyed the conversation with you guys a lot. Hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, Boris, Paris in person private tours

    Outstanding tour Amazing tour, and emotional experience. Isidora was fantastic, interesting and clear. We liked Pointe du Hoc the best, so much history embedded in every inch of that place that Isidora managed to bring alive by playing the testimonies of surviving Rangers who
