With the D-Day beaches stretching over 55 miles of Normandy coastline, and the subsequent battle covering over 4,000 square miles, it is simply impossible to gain an overview of the events of 1944 by taking a tour of of a duration of anything less than a few days. However, we do appreciate that many people may find themselves close to Normandy, maybe in Paris, and have a deep desire to see some of the more famous sites yet only possess limited time to do so. With this in mind we do offer a one day tour with a set itinerary which is designed to work as a day trip by train from Paris.
Running only on a working weekday, by taking an early departure (approximately 7am) from Paris St Lazare railway station to Carentan, Stuart will meet you at the platform at which your train arrives at approximately 9.30am before we visit sites such as Ste Mere Eglise, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery before concluding the tour back at Carentan for you to catch the return train just after 6pm, arriving back in Paris at approximately 8.45pm.
These tours cost 650 euros (300 euros to be paid as a deposit in advance and the remainder in cash on the day of your tour), only ever start and conclude at Carentan station and do not include alternative stops not mentioned in the above itinerary (please note that all deposits are non-refundable, and all tours are non-transferable - we take no responsibility for delays or the non-running of train services for any reason including adverse weather or industrial dispute).
