Explore at your own pace with a private vehicle, driver and English-speaking guide at your service. This exclusive custom tour is designed to maximize your time ashore and discover the most interesting sights in the comfort and privacy of your own vehicle. With your private vehicle and the personalized attention of your driver and English-speaking guide, you will have the flexibility to visit the sights at your own pace.
Begin your day with the scenic drive to Arromanches, a modest seaside resort that owes its fame to the fantastic Operation Mulberry -- an integral part of the Allied Landing in Europe in June 1944. This artificial port was one of the most extraordinary industrial and maritime achievements of the whole war.
Visit the Landing Museum, which depicts the entire landing operation through various media. You'll then see the remains of this artificial port that enabled Allied forces to land in France.
You will have an opportunity to stop for lunch during your time in Arromanches.
An afternoon drive brings you to Colleville Saint Laurent with a stop at the American Cemetery here. More than 9,000 marble grave markers stand aligned at this impressive site overlooking Omaha Beach. A memorial, inscribed with a map of the operation, lines the central alley and is surrounded by trees.
Continue your tour to Utah Beach where you will have some time to stroll and take photos.
Your final stop is at Ste Mere Eglise, famous for the American Paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne engaged in the Normandy invasion.
Capacity: 6 guests. Your private party may be of any size up to the maximum capacity.
Please note: Private vans are ordered per vehicle (not per person), so only one person in the party needs to order the vehicle. The price shown is the total cost for the vehicle, driver, English-speaking guide and applicable entrance fees.
