Enjoy this memorable private tour of Normandy, featuring the D-Day sites of the British and Canadian sectors. Your private tour of Normandy’s British and Canadian sector begins with a drive along shore and stop at Juno Beach, where the British and Canadians landed. In your guided tour of Juno beach, you will visit the old house that has original photos of some of the Canadians who landed here.
Lunch stop is at Quistreham (also referred to as Caen), the port where ferries from England come in. You will drive along the shore here, enjoying a picturesque landscape studded with small stone village houses, on the way to Pegasus Bridge in the British sector. Here, glider-borne troops made a daring assault on this and other vital bridges connecting important waterways. You will learn more at the museum at Pegasus, dedicated to this military feat.
Your private tour of Normandy also takes you to Calvados (home to Normandy’s famous apple brandy), in Beuvron-en-Auge, a picturesque village. The hilly town, dotted with cows and apple trees, still has half-timbered houses, typical in Normandy before the war.
After your Normandy tour in Calvados village of Beuvron-en-Auge you will continue your private tour to the charming port town of Honfleur. Located on the Seine estuary, Honfleur has an unforgettable ambiance that has inspired artists, writers and musicians for centuries – notably impressionist painters Eugène Boudin and Claude Monet. You will enjoy a short stroll around the old dock, where fishermen unload their fresh catches every day.
