D-DAY TOUR FROM PARIS
Booking train tickets for your Normandy D-Day tour
If you are coming from Paris for a D-Day tour in Normandy, our guided tour starting at Carentan train station is ideal. Our minivan will be waiting at the train station exit to coincide with the first arrival from Paris.
One issue that has become clear to us is the difficultly in purchasing tickets in advance. We know that our American clients like to book all their tickets in advance and the site that offers this facility can be confusing. Therefore, we have put together this step by step tutorial to help you secure your tickets in advance.
Rail Europe - train ticket booking website
When you arrive at the site of Rail Europe, you will see the search panel at the top of the screen. Input Paris as the departure point and Carentan as the arrival point. Be sure to select the correct date for your journey and set the departure time as 07am. Next to the selection box where you have just entered the time, you will see an icon to add another trip. Click this and another row of selection boxes will appear.
In the new set of selection boxes, simply do the same as before but this time, enter Bayeux as the departure point and Paris as the arrival point. For the departure time, select 6pm. Once you have done this, click the SEARCH button.
The search results will now appear and you will see a list of trains that you can now reserve seats on. There are tabs at the top of the search results and you will see the second tab as the results for the Bayeux to Paris portion.
The trains that you will need to reserve to join our Normandy D-Day tour are:
07:07 from Paris St Lazare to Carentan
18:35 from Bayeux to Paris
