Heritage & History Tours

Get immersed into the Battle of Normandy and Bayeux history. 

How To Get There

This Day Tour starts in Bayeux. From Paris, you can take a direct train. 

Bayeux Old City

  • Bayeux may not be well known compared to Omaha Beach but the city has a lot to interest travelers. 
  • We plan for you to walk around Bayeux old city in the morning. We will provide a detailed map and information: restaurants, special shops, streets you don’t want to miss. 
  • You will also see the famous Bayeux Tapestry which is a beautiful testimony of the Middle Ages and William the Conqueror history.

The WWII Landing Sites

  • In the early afternoon, you will meet with your Private English-speaking Guide in Bayeux. 
  • Your program can be tailor-made but if no special request, your guide will take you to the most famous US or Canadian landing sites. 
  • American travelers will visit Omaha Beach, Colleville Cemetery and Pointe du Hoc, while Canadian travelers will go to the Juno area.

  • Going with a private guide makes your tour very special. Without it, you will only see «beaches» and a guide will have you really understand what happened during the Battle of Normandy and bring it back to life for you. 
  • We will also recommend some books or movies for you to deepen your knowledge about this part of history.
