You will follow the footsteps of the American soldiers who landed in Normandy on June 6th 1944 with the objective of liberating Europe from the terror of Nazism.
First of all, you will start the day at Omaha Beach where the 1st and 29th US infantry divisions landed. Our guides, with the help of maps and pictures, will explain to you all the details of “Bloody Omaha” and will share with you stories of the brave GI’s who conquered the beach.
Afterward, your guide will take you to the American Cemetery behind Omaha Beach. It is the resting place of more than 9,000 American servicemen. Run by the American Battle Monuments Commission, this sacred place is the most visited D-Day site in Normandy.
Then, you will discover the unique site of Pointe du Hoc. Follow the footsteps of the 2nd US Ranger Battalion who scaled the cliffs to destroy a German gun battery threatening the whole US landing operation.
In the heart of the Airborne operation, you will visit the small town of Sainte-Mere-Eglise. It was the first town to be liberated by the American paratroopers. One of them got stuck on the church steeple during that night.
Later, at Utah Beach, your guide will tell you how the 4th Infantry Division successfully breached the German defenses. Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt Jr led the first wave of troops who landed on that beach at 6:30 a.m. For this, he was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor.
Finally, your guide will bring you to the church of Angoville-au-Plain where two medics set up an aid station. These two young heroes treated about 80 wounded comrades for two days. Discover their heroic feat, a moving story about humanity and dedication on the battlefield.

Mont Saint Michel is the most visited site in Normandy and one of the most visited sites in France. The first construction on the rock was built in 708. Bishop Aubert from Avranches made the decision to create the first sanctuary in France dedicated to Saint Michel on the island.
Eventually, a few decades later, it became a major pilgrimage site for all the Christians in the world. Thanks to the work of the religious community on the Mont, many saw the site as an intellectual reference in Europe where monks copied and wrote thousands of books, manuscripts and charters.
Later, the importance of Mont Saint Michel declined and it became a prison after the French Revolution in 1789. From 1793 until 1863, the site had the worst reputation and was nicknamed the Bastille of the seas… Consequently, the building suffered from the lack of maintenance during that time and almost disappeared after the French stopped using it as a prison. Fortunately, the French government saved it from destruction and many architects participated in its renovation from then until today.
Discover 13 centuries of History with our experienced guides. Since 1979, it is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Above all, Mont-Saint-Michel is an incredible master-piece of architecture surrounded by the beautiful seascape of one of the largest bays in Europe.
