Private Normandy Tours from Paris Itinerary
Tuck your folding umbrella in a bag, board your train per our instructions and it’s off to beautiful Normandy.
Our friendly guide will greet you at the rail station with your name on a sign. Unless a special agenda is on your list, we start as D-Day did, with Sainte–Mère–Église, site of the famous airborne drops in the pre dawn hours of June 6. Next walk the sands of Utah or Omaha Beach, see the artificial harbor at Arromanches, the German gun battery at Longues-sur-Mer, the Pointe du Hoc, and of course, the American Military Cemetery at Colleville-Sur-Mer. This historically important day is timed for Taps at the cemetery whenever possible.
Lunch isn’t included in the tour price, but time is set aside at your discretion for a meal along the coast. A cozy coastal bistro, or a gourmet lunch? Many clients enjoy lunching at the simple cafe near Utah beach, where the walls are covered with decades of signatures of veterans of D-Day, men and women who returned to see the shores again. Other prefer a more upscale dining experience. Whichever way you go you’ll be pleased as the cuisine in Normandy is great.
The above Private Normandy D-Day Tour itinerary is our most popular, but we can plan anything you like. Perhaps Band of Brothers is your passion? Then we can add the crash site of the C47 #66, Marmion’s farm, Brecourt Manor, Drop Zone D and more. How about a cider tasting? A gourmet lunch? A visit to the Memorial de Caen museum? A Caen Memorial museum visit would be first, in that case, and then the afternoon would just be a select few spots. but it is your day.
Many clients like to stay overnight in Bayeux or Caen. If you are one of them, let us know and we’ll arrange a charming 3 star or impressive 5 star for you. Whether driving from Paris in a private van, or being met at the Bayeux train station in Normandy, Link Paris provides custom private Normandy D-Day tour options at a competitive price.
After 18 years of planning custom private Normandy d-day tours, there isn’t much we haven’t planned, be it for 2 or 50.
What is the best time of year to schedule this tour?
A trip from Paris to Normandy is great any time of year. Normandy is right along the English Channel and has the rainy, windy weather you would expect in the region year round. While summer and fall will be warmer, a late winter visit can be ideal, with fewer crowds.
Paris To Normandy Private Tour Details – How To Prepare
If available, bringing along a folding umbrella or a light raincoat is recommended. Comfortable shoes for walking that resist water and keep out sand will make your day a lot easier. Unless it’s full summer, wearing layers to keep out the wind is a great plan. A small backpack with your extras is perfectly acceptable in the van.
Folding wheelchairs and strollers can be stored on the van. Some sites require walking to fully appreciate, such as seeing the German gun emplacement, but most sites are reached via easy van ride. Just let us know when booking if you’ll be traveling with a wheelchair.
Rest room stops are available at lunch and select museums at the key sites, and at the American Cemetery visitor center.

Link Paris Reviews – What Others Say About Our Tours
Don’t miss out on seeing Normandy! Read all of our customer reviews.
|Why we love Normandy – What was once a humble region for fishing and apple growing somehow became the staging ground for victory in WWII. I was overwhelmed by being right on the coast where the tide of World War II changed forever. My touring day started with a little hail (in April) and finished with a bright blue sky and wild winds. An amazing day. – Laura|
