TOURS FROM CRUISE PORTS #9

For those of you who arrive in Normandy by Cruise line… let us show you all of the key D-Day Battlefields, door to door, or rather dock to dock, from your cruise liner in the Ports of Le Havre, Cherbourg, and Honfleur!

Our “Tour from Port” is a private tour, for up to 8 people per minivan. We also offer a Group Tour 9B from Port, this tour is conducted in our Mercedes seating 16 people.

We recommend you inquire as soon as possible even if your party only counts a few people at this time, as “cruise arrival dates” are filling up very quickly. Cruise Critic is also a good website to place an ad and advertise your tour.

 

You have the choice

You can let our guide take you on one of our impressive inland tours of the Battleground where the Allied liberators started their massive invasion, or you can design a tour yourself to suit your own interests and needs – and we will follow your lead! Our booking administrator will help you build an itinerary around the sites you wish to see and check, with you, feasibility in time and distance. Do browse our website for inspiration. You can, of course, simply base your tour on one of our regular group tours.

Our guides are entirely at your disposal, and, for example, you can structure your tour to see the famous medieval town of Bayeux that became the first French capital after the Invasion, and while you are there you can see the panoramic and famous Tapestry of Bayeux that is on display there. Or, you can structure your tour to visit Normandy’s crown jewel, Mont-Saint-Michel, or the charming port of Honfleur. Be mindful of the driving distances between your cruise port and the sites you wish to visit. We would be delighted to check feasibility in time and distance for any itinerary you have in mind. The choice will be difficult, no doubt, as you won’t be able to see all of what Normandy has to offer in one day.

Please Note: The above quotes are for up to 8 people (maximum per van).

Most of our cruise line clients are American/British/Canadian, and desire to focus their tour on the American/British/Canadian Battlefields of Normandy. If this is so, below is a suggested itinerary from your cruise port.

We will visit the historic and moving beach at “Bloody Omaha” and the American Cemetery at Coleville sur Mer, overlooking Omaha Beach. These are sights that no American should miss!

Next, we will stop and visit Pointe du Hoc- where American Rangers courageously scaled sheer cliffs while under constant fire to attack German emplacements.

At noon we will stop for a quick lunch a Saint Mère Eglise, approximately 200 km from the port of Le Havre.

After lunch, we will take you to a 12th century church at Angoville au Plain, where two American paratrooper medics administered life saving aid to a mix of some 80 American and German soldiers wounded during the first day of the Normany Invasion. This village was overrun by troops of both sides several times during D-Day.

Depending on the remaining time available, and your interests, we will take you onto some more key invasion sites for the balance of the day- some of which are only accessible by our guides at Overlordtour!

  • Hours 8.15AM
    6.00 PM
  • Number of spots 8
    30km
  1. Spot 1 Omaha and the WN

    Here we will see many WN’s - (wiederstandnest- meaning German weapons strong point emplacements) from Sainte-Honorine-des-Pertes to Vierville.We will visit some of these strong points, which were the better-defended German Positions along Omaha. We will stop at WN 62 and WN 65 in Fox Green and Easy Red sectors of the American landing, and WN 73 in Dog Green at Vierville. This beach assault was a difficult assignment, given to US V Corps (General Gerow) whose Force O was made up of the 1st Infantry Division, 29th Infantry Division, the Rangers and several attached Units.

  2. Spot 2 American Cemetery of Colleville-Sur-Mer

    This Cemetery, extends over 172.5 acres, and is one of fourteen permanent American World War II cemeteries constructed on foreign soil.It contains the remains of 9387 servicemen and women killed for our freedom. The American Cemetery of Colleville conveys an unforgettable feeling of honor, peace and serenity.

  3. Spot 3 Pointe du Hoc

    Located on a cliff 8 miles west of the Cemetery, this monument was created by France to honour elements of the 2nd Rangers Battalion under the command of LTC James E. RUDDER which scaled the 100-foot cliff. Admiral Hall’s Intelligence officer remarked: "It can’t be done. Three old women with brooms could stop the Rangers scaling that cliff!". RUDDER replied to General BRADLEY: “Sir, my Rangers can do the job for you".

  4. Spot 4 Sainte Mere Eglise

    Sainte Mere Eglise is one of the most memorable places depicted in the famous movie: The Longest Day. This tour will show you the famous church tower upon which the American paratrooper John Steele landed and became entangled as he parachuted into Normandy on June 6th. An actual mannequin of Steele has been hung with parachute on the church tower to commemorate his courageous jump. Although Sainte-Mere-Eglise was the area where the 82nd Airborne were schedule to jump and land, the first paratroopers who landed here were instead, members of the 101st Airborne Division. Several groups of the 101st Division, landed here, miles away from their Drop Zone, and instead, mistakenly landed on top of this village. "Easy Company", for the most part was also misdropped southeast of the town with some men landing in the center of the Village. "Dog", "Easy" and "Fox" Companies belonging to 2nd Battalion 506th PIR were also to jump at around 1:00 a.m. on DZ "C", near Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. Instead, due to all of these missed drops, Sainte-Mere-Eglise was officially the first town liberated at 4:30 AM on the day of the Invasion.

  5. Spot 5 Angoville Au Plain

    : A very moving place! Our tour here will first allow you to enter a 12th/13th Century church where two medics of the 506th, Bob Wright and Kenneth Moore took care of 80 German and American wounded for over 72 consecutive hours following the initial hours of the jump into Normandy.Wright and Moore were honored by the residents of this small village by a Memorial, which you will see, and a recently installed stained glass window in this famous church in commemoration of their life saving efforts. You will enter into the courtyard of the farm where the colonel Sink, Commander of the 506th PIR, established his second CP. The "Easy Company" stayed here from June 7 to the attack of Carentan.

  6. Spot 6 Mont Saint Michel

    (Exclusive tour to the Mont Saint Michel, if you choose this option you will not have time to also visit the D-Days sites) Mont-Saint-Michel is a rocky tidal island located in Normandy, at the mouth of the Couesnon River, near the city of Avranches. The highest point of the island is the spire at the top of the Abbey’s bell tower, 170 meters above sea level. They are currently less than 50 people living on the island. The unique feature of Mont Saint-Michel is that it is completely surrounded by water and can only be accessed at low tide. Victor Hugo described the tides as changing “à la vitesse d’un cheval au galop” (“as swiftly as a galloping horse”). Mont Saint-Michel is one of the most famous French monuments. Approximately 3 million people visit the site each year (3,250,000 in 2006). The Mount and its bay are listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
