When your cruise ship docks in Cherbourg, meet your guide at the cruise terminal and hop into your air-conditioned minivan. Then, head out to the D-Day landing beaches on the Normandy coast to begin your tour. Along the way, watch movies in your vehicle which shed light on the region’s WWII history.
During your 8.5-hour tour, visit sites of interest including the Pointe du Hoc and Sainte-Mère-Église. Hear how the US 82nd Airborne Division attacked German gun battery positions in the early hours of D-Day, and see evidence of the ferocious fighting still visible today.
At Omaha Beach — widely considered among Normandy’s most historically significant WWII battle sites — listen as your guide explains how US soldiers overcame German forces and learn of the sacrifices made on all sides.
After lunch in a local French restaurant in the Omaha Beach area, visit the Overlord Museum — a museum dedicated to the memory of WWII. Discover artifacts dating back to D-Day itself and hear stories from the front line of battle.
Afterward, visit the Normandy American Cemetery and the La Cambe German Cemetery, and perhaps pay your respects to the thousands of fallen soldiers buried there. When your time at the La Cambe German Cemetery comes to an end, return in comfort to your cruise ship in Cherbourg to conclude your tour.
