Description

Albion Voyages takes your breath away with this ultimate experience to visit the D-Day Beaches via helicopter. See the underwater wreckage along the coast understanding the topographical challenges faced by our brave soldiers on June 6, 1944.

Should you have a D-Day Veteran in your family, please tell us. Our historian will be happy to research the veteran's history "tracing his footsteps" with the presentation.

Smile as your D-Day historian, accompanied by your driver meet you in the hotel lobby. The presentation is in an interactive conversational style meeting your level of interest and knowledge.

Boarding an AS350 Helicopter, Olivier-your pilot, will assist in your orientation and comfort. A Bose Voice Activated Headset allows the continuation of the presentation as you make a low altitude flight parallel to the D-Day Beaches. Making a close approach to circle over the American cemetery, the historian will point out the different terrain landmarks significant to the Battle. The flight is approximately 40 minutes.

Landing at significant Chateau for a garden lunch, a table will be reserved on the terrace. After lunch, you will visit the following D-Day sites with your historian:

Arromanches Artificial harbor built by the British in 12 days.

Omaha Beach An American military assignment, five miles of the most difficult fighting with the highest casualty rate of the five D-Day Beaches.

American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer 172.5 acres containing 9387 graves or a third of the Americans who loss their lives in the Normandy Campaign.

Point Du Hoc Rangers scaled the 90-foot cliffs to capture this major German artillery and communication outpost.

St. Mere Eglise A major crossroad for the military the U.S. 82nd Airborne but they landed in the town square and church yard.

It is highly recommended watching the films: "Saving Private Ryan" and the "Longest Day" prior to the tour.

A Perfect "Second Day Tour" to complement the D-Day Experience is Albion Voyages' "The Occupation: A Local Perspective".

Ablion was fantastic! We were supplied with every detail we needed. When we had a glitch in our hotel, they stepped in and solved our problem immediately and created a fabulous experience at the new hotel! Adrienne even came to meet us before we left Bayeux. They were a great team and I would highly recommend them.
