We strongly recommend taking your time in exploring this incredible region. At Normandy Battle Tours we offer serious, in depth and historically rich tours led by a qualified historian and published author of military history. Our kind of tour takes time and is simply impossible to undertake in anything less than a few days. All of our residential tours are tailored specifically to your requests and we will work with you in advance of your tour to devise an itinerary which will ensure you get the very most from your visit. The main emphasis of your tour will be on the battlefields, after all this is the subject which your guide has dedicated the majority of his adult life into researching, but do not worry you will not be all warred out as we'll be able to combine excursions to other sites of interest within Normandy's abundance of cultural attractions. We could maybe include a visit to Mont St Michel, Honfleur or Giverny to name but a few options. Whatever you want to do in Normandy we are the most passionate, dedicated and professional tour operator there is offering unrivalled versatility and flexibility ultimately providing the visitor with an extraordinary experience; one which we guarantee the whole group, young or old, will remember for the rest of their lives.
Obviously, the longer the duration of your tour, the greater insight into this special history you shall receive. However, we do realise that some people only have a single day to tour the D-Day beaches. We therefore offer a limited number of single day tours commencing and concluding at Carentan railway station. This tour runs only on a working weekday and is designed to coincide and commence with the arrival of the first direct train from Paris St Lazare and conclude at the same station in time for you to catch the 6pm return train to the capital. Because of the limited time constraints of such a tour, the itinerary of our single day tours are fixed to visiting Ste Mere Eglise, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery.
We are a small company who can combine the personal touch with a professional academic background. By using Normandy Battle Tours we are certain we will offer your whole group an unforgettable experience when visiting the scene of The Great Crusade.
