"Sword" and "Gold". These were the code-names designating the beaches assaulted by British troops on D-Day. A journey back in time to the first hours of the invasion. Find out how British glider-pilots managed to pull off an incredible landing and one of the most outstanding flying achievements of the war, but also how the Tommies finally overcame all difficulties and secured sections of a beachhead considered vital for the success of "Overlord".




NEPTUNE C - Canadian assault area

The famous house, Juno Beach, Normandy

Longues s/ Mer battery - Arromanches - Grayes s/ Mer - Juno Centre & Juno Beach (Courseulles s/ Mer - Bernieres s/ Mer - St. Aubin) - Beny / Revieres Canadian Cemetery - Authie - Abbeye d'Ardenne


Often overlooked by visitors and historians alike, the story of the Canadian D-Day landings is an amazing one. On June 6th, 1944, the Canadian troops stormed "Juno" beach and achieved the deepest penetration into enemy territory of all the Allied divisions. Visit one of the two Canadian Cemeteries and learn more about Canada's role in WWII at Juno Centre. Last but not least, hear stories of the Canadian soldiers and their incredible bravery in the face of death as well as the ones of the crimes perpetrated by the SS in the first days of the campaign. 



D-DAY TOURS (HALF-DAY)

OMAHA TOUR (American landings)

Pointe du Hoc and Ranger Memorial, Normandy

Longues s/ Mer battery - Normandy US Cemetery and Memorial - Omaha Beach - Pointe du Hoc


This is the perfect tour formula for those of you having only a few hours on their hands. Considered the second most visited place in Normandy, Colleville American Cemetery and Memorial is a very moving place: men and women resting in the soil so stubbornly defended by the enemy on D-Day.  Furthermore, no visitor should leave Normandy without stepping on "Omaha Beach", scene of fierce fighting on June 6th, 1944, or without seeing the "lunar scape" created by the Allied bombardments at Pointe du Hoc. 




GOLD TOUR (British landings)

Sexton at Gold Beach, Normandy
Bayeux Cemetery - Crepon - Ver s/ Mer - Asnelles - Arromanches - Longues s/ Mer

This is all about unique landmarks: Arromanches, the place where one can still contemplate the vestiges of the artificial harbor, or Longues s/ Mer powerful coastal battery which became illustrative for the German standardized fortifications of Hitler's "Atlantikwall". Reminisce about the endeavor of the British forces at "Gold Beach" and their difficulties. Last but not least, Bayeux War Cemetery and Memorial, largest Commonwealth graveyard in Normandy, tells the story of brave men who "gave their today for us to have our tomorrow".


JUNO TOUR (Canadian landings)

Beny Canadian Cemetery, Normandy
Longues s/ Mer battery - Arromanches - Grayes s/ Mer - Juno Beach - Beny/Revieres Cemetery

On D-Day, "Juno Beach" was the second worst place to land after "bloody Omaha". The losses sustained by units like the Royal Winnipegs or Queen's Own Rifles were staggering. Learn how floating tanks were hampered by the heavy seas and how quite a few of them ended up being buried in the sand for decades. See the remains of the  German bunkers and find out why the beach obstacles the enemy set-up became a very real "devil's garden" for both coxswains and Canadian infantry.
