The landing Beaches of Normandy from Bayeux or Caen - Private tour

The landing Beaches of Normandy from Bayeux or Caen - Private tour

Marked by engraved headstones, battle-scarred landscapes and the memories of the fast-disappearing 'Greatest Generation', we will pay tribute to those young men that gave their lives for our freedom. We need to ensure that their story is passed on from present to future generations !!!

During that tour, we will cover different topics (the ground, naval, airborne forces, the artificial ports, the decoy plan called Fortitude, the French life under the german occupation, the French resistance, the Atlantic wall, …).
