Normandy guided D-Day tours, visit the invasion beaches with us!

D-Day invasion area tours

2 – Day guided private D-Day tour

Bayeux Sightseeing Tours also offers an indepth tour of D-Day. This is a tour for people who do not want to share the vehicle with others or have specific interests and sites they want to visit. If you had family or people you know fighting here or just have great interest in what happened on D-Day, this tour is perfect for you. Others will NOT be able to join this tour too. Groups up to a maximum of 8 people per vehicle! Bayeux Sightseeing Tours deliberately keeps her groups small for maximum personal contact and to have enough time to show you everything we promise. This way we will also be able to answer all your questions.  If your interest is Band of Brothers or Airborne in general, this will be an excellent choice too. An intense and powerfull tour covering the American sector and British landing beach “Gold”!
