Normandy Group Tour

The Normandy Landings in June 1944 signified a major turning point in World War II and in those dark days gave hope to millions that Europe would eventually be liberated. D-Day – or 'Operation Overlord' – was an extremely large and complex undertaking. The successful coordination of American, British, Canadian and Free French Airborne troops, as well as the landing of infantry and armoured divisions, remains one of the greatest victories in history and the largest invasion of troops by sea.

Tour Highlights

  • Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword Beaches where the troops landed.
  • Pointe du Hoc.
  • Airborne drop zones.
  • Military cemeteries including St. Laurent sur Mer and Ranville.
  • Arromanches to see the artificial harbours built by the Allies after D-Day.
  • Saint Mere Eglise, the famous 13th Century church with the Airborne stained glass windows.
  • Pegasus Bridge, named after the emblem worn by the British airborne forces that defended the bridge and Pegasus Museum.
  • Brécourt Manor, captured by Company E of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, as seen in the popular TV series, Band of Brothers.
  • 1944 Normandy Museum or Bayeux Tapestry.
  • Gondree Café (the first liberated building).

What Our Clients Say

I was very fortunate to be on their 70th and 75th D-Day celebration tours. The service and attention to details was exceptional. It was very moving to go back.

As a Jane Austen enthusiast, this tour was perfect - and the Jane Austen Festival in Bath was just fabulous to see!

Words fail me...The Downton Abbey was a perfectly wonderful travel experience! We did not know we would be the ONLY guests at the Abbey. When we realised how truly exclusive our tour was we were speechless! Surreal being there and actually meeting Lady Carnarvon.
