What to expect
  • This private Normandy tour from Caen allows you to choose what World War II sites you visit and how long you spend at each one. There are many D-Day sites to visit, and your expert guide offers unique insights into each one, no matter what sites you choose. The beaches of Normandy – now known as the D-Day beaches – were invaded by more than 16,000 Allied troops on the nights of June 5 and 6, 1944. Soon, the beaches along the coast of Normandy saw heavy fighting between Allied forces and the Germans. These brutal battles helped lead to the eventual end of the war. During this private Normandy tour, choose from a number of potential sites to create your own itinerary. See the most famous landing beaches, such as Omaha Beach – which saw some of the deadliest fighting – or Utah Beach, the first the Allies secured. Pay your respects at the American Cemetery near Omaha Beach, where more than 9,300 soldiers are buried, or the Airborne Museum of Saint-Mere-Eglise. See Sword Beach, where British and Free French soldiers made their advances, moving from there to capture Pegasus Bridge. Pay your respects at the Commonwealth Military Cemeteries, tour the Merville Battery Museum, or visit the Hillman Bunker Complex near the town of Colleville-Montgomery. Head for Juno Beach, where the Canadian forces invaded, to see the Juno Beach Center and the Canadian Cemetery near Reviers and Veny-sur-Mer. Visit Ardenne Abbey, a 12th-century abbey where 11 Canadian prisoners of war were executed. The itinerary is yours to sculpt, with each option offering wonderful opportunities to put history in context and honor those who fought and died on these beaches in Normandy.

WE hired a tour guide / docent for a day while staying in the Normandy. It added extra information to being able to go to places and hearing how it impacted the people there as well as what events occurred in each place. We went to both American and german cemeteries which was not necessarily on our list, but were convinced by the tour guide to do so. Great to see the differences in how each culture memorializes their fallen.

This was truly a wonderful day trip! Our party included teens. The trip gave them a history lesson that they cannot appreciate from reading about World War II and Nornandy. The tour guide was truly knowledgable and shared facts that are not in textbooks. That you Olivia!

July 2017: Our guide, a young lady named Cat who speaks excellent English, met us at the train station. Cat gave us a wonderful tour of Ste. Mare Eglise, Point du Hoc, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, and the American Cemetery. My husband, our two teen daughters, and I heard Cat's detailed and thorough history of the war and the D-Day battle from the French perspective. I took copious notes and am so happy to have had this opportunity. Seeing the battlefields and beaches, touching the sand, and reading over the grave markers was very meaningful. WWII will never be just a textbook chapter.

Took a tour with Normandy Sightseeing Tours of the American landing beaches. Tour guide Adrian was great. Young guy who is very passionate about history, Norman history and of course D-Day. While everyone wants to see the main sights, the tour is flexible to any sights you want to add. Very flexible. Our tour was a full day tour and the pace was perfect, saw everything we wanted to see (Utah, Omaha, St. Mare-Eglise, American cemetery) but also threw in German cemetery and Maisy battery, so good flexibility. Adrian has been asked every question so his descriptions answer your questions before you ask. Having a live person orient you to the what was going on, on each beach/landing zone and the timing of everything really brings it to life and clarifies what was going on. Highly recommend.

We booked a small group private tour with Bertrand Saudrais and he was outstanding in every way. He picked us up at our place exactly as promised. He had everything planned so well and he was a wealth of knowledge. He really made the tour special. His personality was very pleasing and he was patient with our questions. Bertrand really had a great sense of humor. Our tour exceeded the advertised time so that we could experience all the sights. This was one of the best tours we have been on and it was due to Bertrand. Book him if at all possible!
