Tour Itinerary

Longues 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.

 

Please note that we stop here for 45 minutes.

Arromanches - Mulberry Artificial Harbour

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.

 

Please note that we stop here for 20 minutes.

Arromanches - 360 cinema

Come and discover the Arromanches 360 film co-financed by the Région Basse-Normandie and the Mémorial de Caen. Produced by the authors of the hugely successful French television series Apocalypse, this film will be projected in High Definition on 9 screens and tell the story of the terrible Battle of Normandy thanks to archive images gathered from around the world.This film is a tribute to soldiers from all countries and to the 20,000 civilians who were killed during this battle for the liberation of Europe, battle which gave rise to so much hope.

 

Please note that we stop here for 40 minutes. The entrance fee is not included in the price of the tour.

Gold Beach - Asnelles

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.

 

Please note that we stop here for 30 minutes.

Ryes War Cemetery

On our way back to the drop off point, we will stop and show you the Ryes War Cemetery. This is a fitting end to this short tour where you will be able to reflect on the loss suffered by the British.

 

Please note that we stop here for 30 minutes.

Things to consider

We want you to have a fantastic experience so please bear these in mind when preparing for your tour:

The weather can be unpredictable in Normandy so dress in layers.
Please wear comfortable walking shoes.
Gratuities will be appreciated.

One last thing!

If you decide to take a tour with us, we will be over the moon. However, even if you don't and decide to choose another company, we are still grateful. Without you, Normandy as a whole would suffer so thank you, thank you, thank you!
