Enjoy a highly informative and engaging private tour of Normandy, whose landing beaches are famous for their key role in the fall of Nazi Germany in WWII. Your guided Normandy tour from Cherbourg begins at Ste. Mere Eglise, one of the first towns liberated by the Allies. The Ste. Mere Eglise’s Airborne Museum pays tribute to the American paratroopers who descended on Ste. Mere Eglise as it burst into flames. This informative museum maintains an extensive collection of photos, films, interactive displays and artifacts from the ill-fated D-Day landings. You will hear about the history from your expert guide as you go through the town and the church, whose stained glass windows depict the paratroopers rather than religious subjects.
Your Normandy tour from Cherbourg will also take you to Omaha beach, where so many young American lost their lives. Next, you will go to the American cemetery and the museum which features stories, photos, films, interactive displays and artifacts.
Time permitting, this Normandy tour from Cherbourg also takes you to spectacular Pointe du Hoc, where Colonel James Rudder and his Rangers accomplished a memorable feat of arms on the cliffs on June 6, 1944. Located between Utah and Omaha beaches, it is a cliff 100 ft. high. Pointe du Hoc was where the Germans had bunkers with artillery that could reach Omaha and Utah beaches.
