daadmin
16 febbraio 2016

On this complete, full‐day tour, you will discover the Landing Beaches of Normandy where on the 6th of June 1944, the Allied forces landed on the coast of Lower Normandy to start the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. With your licensed guide, you will re-live the principal events and battles of the Longest Day. Your Licensed English Speaking Guide will pick you up from your hotel in Paris at 7.00 am in a deluxe private vehicle and you will depart immediately to the wonderful region of Normandy. Upon your arrival, you will be given an introduction by your private guide to the battle of Normandy. Enjoy a quick stop half‐way for coffee and croissants.

You will begin your day in Pointe du Hoc, a strategic position for the Germans overlooking the English Channel just between Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. Your guide will explain to you how the US Second Ranger Battalion, under the command of Colonel James Rudder, successfully assaulted Pointe du Hoc after scaling the cliffs. You will then enjoy the scenery whilst driving along Omaha Beach before reaching one of the highlights of the day: The American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer where 9387 American soldiers are buried. During your private visit, your guide will show you famous headstones such as, Theodore Roosevelt Jr who received the medal of honour, and The Niland Brothers who inspired Steven Spielberg’s film, Saving Private Ryan, with the appropriate explanations. After this emotional walk through the cemetery, you will have the opportunity to view remarkable films and documentaries about the Normandy operations in the Visitor Centre.

Following this, you will have a lunch (not included) in a traditional restaurant in Port en Bessin, a small fishing-port village, situated between Omaha Beach and Gold Beach. Enjoy some of the best specialities of Normandy region: fresh sea‐food, Camembert cheese with some great local cider. BON APPETIT!!! After this delicious lunch, you will discover another impressive site of the Second World War: The German Battery of Longues-sur-Mer, part of Germany’s Atlantic Wall coastal fortifications with the four 155mm guns still intact.

At the conclusion of your tour, you will visit the beautiful town of Arromanches where the massive artificial harbour built by the Allies still remains. If time permits, enjoy a cider and calvados tasting in a small local farm near Arromanches before heading back to Paris in the late afternoon, where you will be dropped off at your hotel around 7.00pm.

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have an 11 month old and were able to have our dinner and wine without disturbing our son sleeping in one of the bedrooms. The outside patio is beautiful and feels very private. The location is great, away from the busy and touristy center with a more local feel. There is a great bakery just down the street, as well as two supermarkets close by. It takes about 20 minutes by metro to go "downtown", with the metro stop (Dausmenil), which is a block or so away. Nadia helped us get a cab to the airport and even paid the $5.00 reservation fee for us, which was very nice of her. All in all, I will never choose a hotel room over an apartment again, and am a big fan of bnb. We hope to return to Paris someday, and would for sure want to stay in Nadia's place again.

    This studio in the Marais neighborhood was an amazing value. While small, it had everything we needed and was easy to access. The neighborhood was very fun and close to the metro, Notre Dame, and other Paris attractions. It is located in a quiet courtyard off the street.

    This studio in the Marais neighborhood was an amazing value. While small, it had everything we needed and was easy to access. The neighborhood was very fun and close to the metro, Notre Dame, and other Paris attractions. It is located in a quiet courtyard off the street. The only downside is that you can hear everything in the hallway outside of the door, but the building has only a few other tenants so we were not disturbed at night. Virginie was available by phone and accommodated our check in schedule with a key drop box. We were thrilled to be in the heart of Paris for such an affordable price.

    The surrounding of the apartment is very quite. And the location is quite amazing cuz it takes little time to walk to the Champs Elysees and the entrances of metro line 1. We enjoyed the time living there. BTW, the actual looking of the apartment is much better than in the photos. January 2014 Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China

    Lejligheden er simpelthen så rar at være i og ligger helt perfekt. Næsten kun et stenkast fra Seinen, hvorfra man blot skal spadsere til den næste bro, så er man ved Notre Dame. Mange gode spisesteder samt bager og indkøbsmuligheder helt tæt på. Vi blev informeret om det hele ved ankomsten, som var lige så venlig som stemningen i lejligheden....
