Upon arriving in Caen, you will meet your guide in the rail station. You'll start the day with a guided tour of the Caen War Memorial. Afterwards, enjoy a leisurely lunch in the Memorial cafeteria. Then it is off to the D-Day landing beaches for a guided tour.

The D-Day landing beach portion of the day lasts approximately four to five hours. Transportation is provided in an air-conditioned minivan. Up to 8 persons maximum per van (why choose us instead of the large tour bus?).
