Walk With Us – In The Footsteps of Heroes

Walk the most famous and some of the almost forgotten sites of this vast D Day conflict.

Stay as guests at our timeless 16th century fortified Manoir that was itself a part of the Normandy battleground on the 6th June 1944. At the Manor we can provide accommodation for up to eight guests.

Dine with us the night before your tour begins and after breakfast prepare yourself for a day of standing in the footsteps of heroes.

Visit with our Tours the exact Normandy locations of not just the well documented D Day battles – but some of the thousands of less well known but equally bitterly contested skirmishes that took place in the first few weeks after D-Day.

See through our eyes the tragedies and successes of those first hellish days of 1944 when life itself was a tenuous day to day existence – and where comradeship was everything.

“A tour filled with personal stories about individual American soldiers and what they did in these fateful days”

We had two full days with Ben. First day at Utah Beach and the inland villages where the Airborne landed. Second day at Omaha and related inland locations. Both days you see the actual places that you have seen depicted in movies from The Longest Day to Saving Private Ryan and learn what actually happened there. Ben and his wife were gracious hosts, sharing their lovingly restored villa. He has tracked down the families and stories of many of our young men who gave their lives, making the tour personal and real. We had been to Omaha Beach before with a larger tour group, but it was superficial by comparison. My only regret is that we did not book a third day with Ben.
