Private guided Allied D-Day Tour from Bayeux

On this full day tour we will visit the Canadian, British and American landing beaches: Juno, Gold and Omaha.

On route, as well as on location, throughout the day you will learn about the planning and preparations involved to get the largest military operation in history organised, which units were involved, what their objectives were, and how victory was achieved.

I will share with you stories of the many men and women who fought to free Europe of Nazi occupation.

At each of these site there will be some free time for you to take photos, use restrooms or grab a coffee.
