CRUISE SHIP D-DAY TOUR
An 8-hour private tour of the American, British and Canadian D-Day sites in a modern air-conditioned minivan (up to 8 passengers). During the day we will walk in the footsteps of the troops who took part in history’s most ambitious military operation – Operation Overlord. Overlord involved more than 10,000 aircraft and 7,000 ships, and landed over 156,000 allied servicemen on the beaches and in the hedgerows of Normandy during the 6th of June 1944. Sites may include Pegasus Bridge, Sword Beach, Juno Beach, Gold Beach, Arromanches and the mulberry harbour, the Longues-sur-Mer battery, Omaha beach and the American cemetery, Pointe du Hoc, the US Airborne sites and Utah Beach (exact tour itinerary will depend on your port of arrival).
