Multi-media Tour Experience

All of our vehicles are fitted with our unique multi-media tour system. As we drive, the vehicle location will be shown on a map via our on board screens. As we pass points of interest, small video clips that we have produced will start automatically by GPS. These videos will help explain the sites that we pass and, lay the foundation for the next stop. This system was developed in house and is unique in Normandy!

Please note that this does not mean that this tour will just be multi-media. Far from it! This is an additional bonus while we drive from site to site. The guide will also provide information as we drive and when we arrive at sites, you will have a guided tour outside of the vehicle. Best of all worlds!

We strongly advise you to arrive early for the tour as no refunds will be considered if you miss the service.

  • German gun batteryLongues Sur Mer

    This impressive gun battery position is the only position along the Atlantik Wall in this area of France that still has the guns in situ. We will explore the site together and you will learn about how it was built, how it operated and ultimately, how it was silenced.

  • Artificial HarbourArromanches

    Arromanches was chosen as the location for Mulberry B Artifical Harbour; better known as port Winston after Churchill. We will show the impressive remnants of this amazing construction project and explain how significant this was in defeating the Germans in Normandy.

    Gold beach was assaulted by British forces on D-Day. Their objectives were to move west and capture Arromanches and link up with American forces landing at Omaha. Move eastwards to link up with forces landing at Juno Beach and to move inland and capture the medieval town of Bayeux.
