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. This 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. We do however appreciate that many people have a great desire to visit the D-Day battlefields and that they will at some point find themselves in Paris for a limited time. With Normandy so tentalisingly close to the French capital, we do offer a one day tour, albeit with a limited itinerary to the longer duration tours we offer, which we hope may at least offer a glimpse of this remarkable history. These tours, offered only on a working weekday, are designed and timed to coincide at Carentan railway station for the arrival of the first train out of Paris St Lazare (approximate departure time of just after 7am), the tours then have approximately 7 hours and 30 minutes to tour the American sector of the D-Day battlefields, before concluding back at the railway station at Carentan at approximately 5.45pm for the evening departure by train back to Paris.
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.
