Full description
Spend the day visiting four locations over three and a half hours. Visit the Bayeux Tapestry, and learn the history behind it. Then visit the Omaha Beach, known for by its code name for one of the five sectors of the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944, during World War II. Visit Gold Beach located between Port-en-Bessin on the west and La Rivière on the east. High cliffs at the western end of the zone meant that the landings took place on the flat section between Le Hamel and La Rivière, in the sectors code-named Jig and King. Learn how Juno Beach was the responsibility of the Canadian Army, with sea transport, mine sweeping, and a naval bombardment force provided by the Royal Canadian Navy and the British Royal Navy as well as elements from the Free French, Norwegian, and other Allied navies.

    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    It is a real experience to be able to sniff the history! Although we did not like the weather gods, we were able to fully enjoy this adventure. Thomas is a very pleasant and attentive guide and driver. An absolute must!
