“You are about to embark upon the great crusade toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you…I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle.” Eisenhower, June 6 th 1944.

In the early hours of 6 June 1944, Allied forces began landing on the shores of Normandy, the first step in a long planned invasion of German occupied France. Known as Operation Overlord. Parachutists were dropped near Ste-Mere-Eglise and Pegasus Bridge. Sea bourne assaults were made a long a string of code named beaches. Over 60 years on these very same beaches are still referred to by the same code names, Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword.

We spend the day retracing our brave soldiers heroic footsteps to victory…

An awe inspiring, charged with emotion day never to be forgotten as we tour the most important locations of the Allied invasion on the “Day of Days”. We can only be moved by the enormity of the task and marvel at the courage of the fighting men. We visit the beaches, key landing areas, strategic bridges and the site of the Allied prefabricated harbour.

At the American Cemetery we humbly pay our respects to the brave fighting men who made the ultimate sacrifice. As we finally finish our tour one reflects on the sheer human cost of the undertaking to free us from Nazi Germany.

As with all our tours, if our most popular tour schedules do not suit your specific requirements, please allow us to create a customised itinerary especially for you. We always remember the day is yours to cherish.

“So, my dear Oliver, who would have thought it possible that I can drop you an email at 39,000 feet! The world is certainly changing! However, it is good that some things stay the same...for example, folks like you who help folks like us enjoy their holidays to the fullest. Clearly, this was a trip I planned for Joannie, who has spent decades reading about the royals (beginning with the British, some French, and lots of the Spanish), sorting out their loves, romances, and their rise and fall. Thus, it was natural that she always wanted to tour the great homes and castles and re-live that past. Thus, charged with that responsibility, the Lord cast me into your wonderful hands and you provided the rest. We had a great week. Danny was wonderful from his first meeting us in the lounge at Heathrow rather than having to negotiate the 300 sign waving drivers at the arrivals area, until he swiftly delivered us back to the departure lounge...and all in between. I must admit London and surround traffic has changed a great deal since my first trip in '63 and no longer would I ever attempt a self-drive! The day trips were well planned and executed (and not for the faint of heart!). Can never thank you enough! And, we look forward to our return in June. If your travels ever bring you back across the pond, we would hope to be able to return the favor! Many thanks again Michael ” Read more testimonials
