This private Normandy tour from Caen allows you to choose what World War II sites you visit and how long you spend at each one. There are many D-Day sites to visit, and your expert guide offers unique insights into each one, no matter what sites you choose.

The beaches of Normandy – now known as the D-Day beaches – were invaded by more than 16,000 Allied troops on the nights of June 5 and 6, 1944. Soon, the beaches along the coast of Normandy saw heavy fighting between Allied forces and the Germans. These brutal battles helped lead to the eventual end of the war.

During this private Normandy tour, choose from a number of potential sites to create your own itinerary.

See the most famous landing beaches, such as Omaha Beach – which saw some of the deadliest fighting – or Utah Beach, the first the Allies secured. Pay your respects at the American Cemetery near Omaha Beach, where more than 9,300 soldiers are buried, or the Airborne Museum of Saint-Mere-Eglise.

See Sword Beach, where British and Free French soldiers made their advances, moving from there to capture Pegasus Bridge. Pay your respects at the Commonwealth Military Cemeteries, tour the Merville Battery Museum, or visit the Hillman Bunker Complex near the town of Colleville-Montgomery.

Head for Juno Beach, where the Canadian forces invaded, to see the Juno Beach Center and the Canadian Cemetery near Reviers and Veny-sur-Mer. Visit Ardenne Abbey, a 12th-century abbey where 11 Canadian prisoners of war were executed.

The itinerary is yours to sculpt, with each option offering wonderful opportunities to put history in context and honor those who fought and died on these beaches in Normandy.

Our tour guide was Caroline. She was fantastic! We learned so much throughout the day that we hadn't known prior to the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour. It was well worth the money and time we spent.

I was disappointed with our guide. It was expensive since we had a private tour . I asked our guide about seeing the city where the paratroopers first landed , he said we couldn't do that right from the start. Then when I asked him about seeing some museums, again he said that would be a waste of our time. I know we couldn't do everything in a day , but he was average at best. To the point that i will not recommend Viator to others if this is the type of guides you have. He was interested in scheduling lunch. He was checking his phone throughout the day,which i feel was all personal business. I would recommend that he study up more on his subject before leading people especially for the high fee. As a final note he handed me his review and asked me to fill it out right in front of him. I rated him high marks since he was looking at me while I did it, I was at his mercy to get us back to our train station so I gave him a good review. Please disregard that review.

Gwen was a wonderful tour guide! His english was excellent and he explained, in detail, the many events leading up to as well as the D-Day invasion. My wife and I had a D-Day tour of Normandy in 2011 that we thought was excellent- but Gwen's tour was by far and away the best! He took us to a lovely hotel near Omaha beach for lunch and the food was exceptional! I would recommend Gwen and the Viator Normandy D-Day tour to all. Duane
