On June 6, 1944, the Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy. Now known as D-Day, this historical turning point reminds us of the American triumphs made during the war. On this private Paris day trip, see many of Normandy’s critical battle sites and get a sense of what it was like on the front lines of combat. In addition, the Allies spent months carefully planning the invasion. Plus, learn more about Normandy’s cuisine by touring a local French cider house and tasting a variety of delicious drinks. This full-day tour includes:

  • - A personal English-speaking tour leader
  • - Round-trip private luxury transportation from Paris to Normandy
  • - Cider tasting and tour
  • - Visits to Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc
  • - Custom group size

Pointe du Hoc Cliffs

On the first stop of this day trip, you'll discover the beautiful cliffs of Pointe du Hoc. Now a scenic overlook at beautiful French beaches, Pointe du Hoc served as a shooting point for German soldiers during WWII. Trace the footsteps of soldiers and see what remains of the craters and bunkers left over from these battles. On D-Day, it was crucial for the Allied forces to take control of Pointe du Hoc and regain the power of the coastline. Taking the hits from German soldiers up above, Allied forces fought tirelessly to reclaim control of the area and emerge victorious. 

Omaha Beach Invasion

A 5-mile stretch of the Normandy coast, Omaha Beach is located directly below the Pointe du Hoc and faces the English Channel. One of two beaches invaded by American troops, Utah Beach is the other one. This is where U.S. forces faced the most resistance. Reported American casualties sustained here range from 2,000-5,000. This is where young American troops, many still teenagers, disembarked from a landing craft and braved German artillery fire.

Lunch Break

After your dose of WWII history and remembrance, it’s time for some delicious French cuisine. Your guide will take you to a local restaurant to indulge in some delicious local grub.
Lunch is not included in the price of this day trip. However, we will happily recommend a delicious lunch spot for you. 

Cider Tasting and Tour

After lunch, continue on exploring the French foodie scene. Tour a local cider house and learn the manufacturing process behind Normandy’s best liqueurs. After your tour, try some delicious hard cider, Calvados and Pommeau. Both with a refreshing apple taste, these ciders complete a history-heavy morning with a bit of leisure. Outside of Normandy’s World War II history, the gorgeous region is known for its rolling hills, orchards and farmland. One of the world’s largest areas for apple production, French cider is the principal export of Normandy. While France is primarily known for its wine production, French cider from Normandy nectar is not to be missed.

American Cemetery in Normandy

As your final stop, pay a visit to the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. This site honors the American soldiers who died on D-Day and serves as their final resting place. Learn stories from your guide about the American triumphs of D-Day and pay tribute to the brave men who lost their lives in combat.
