Custom private tours of the D Day Landing beaches
Custom-tailored and private D Day tours are our speciality.
Even our published tour itineraries end up being customised and tailored to our individual guest on the day. When your guide is as expert and knowledgeable as Malcolm Clough, a change in the itinerary presents no problem. Malcolm covers every aspect of the invasion and landings with the same enthusiasm and interest. However, if you prefer, Malcolm can cover one or two aspects of Operation Overlord. He can focus on the British Beaches, the US beaches, the Canadian beaches. He can look at the landings from the perspective of the the infantrymen, the paratroopers, the reconnaissance units, the engineering teams, the air forces involved, and explore these and other aspects of the D Day Landings.
If you let us know what you would like to see, we can arrange exactly the type of custom private tour you want.
Private tours can be as long or as short as you like. We can cover the quick highlights in a morning or afternoon, or we can take more time and get into more detail, have an opportunity to relate more of the stories about the events and really give you a feel for what happened and what the experience would have been like.
Transport, catering and logistics for private D Day tours
We can organise every aspect of your custom private D Day tour. We can collect you (and your party) from your accommodation, your airport, train station or ferry port. All our tours are conducted in comfortable 4 x 4 vehicles ( 2 x Mercedes ML 270). We can recommend (and book) restaurants to suit every budget and taste or we can source packed lunches and picnics. Let our local knowledge and experience inform your choices to make sure your visit to the D Day beaches is an experience you will remember all your life.
Accommodation available, if required
On our 3-day D-Day tours, we usually accommodate the guests in our beautiful farmhouse gites in Brittany, which allows us to continue the discussions after dinner or to have a refreshing dip in the pool before we set off in the morning. Staying with us in Folleville can allow family members who don’t wish to participate in the tour to relax at the poolside while the others head off to experience the events of Operation Overlord.
