Excursions from LeHarve to Normandy


Recommended Posts

I hqave never been to Normandy and I am very excited to try to connect on the best possible excursion to and from Normandy from our docking at Le Harve.  Any recommendations.  Sailing on the Crown Princess next May.


Thanks in advance

Now that you have found the best location for your research, please look down the board...there are several recommended venders. Perhaps the most commonly mentioned is the one we have used, Overlord Tours. Great operation, great tour.

We used Cunard’s tour twice (American sector in 2017; Juno & Sword last year). 

If Princess uses the same operator, then I would recommend that.

The cost was about $20 higher than Overlord’s bus tour, but made up for that by including a very nice lunch.

What is your primary interest in Normandy?  WWII and the D-Day beaches?  Medieval Normandy (castles, Bayeux tapestry) or are you a foodie? (Shore side restaurants & oysters, the Cider trail)  That will help you focus your efforts and searching.

I am taking a friend who's father is buried at the cemetery.  He died in the invasion  before she was born. We are looking for a very small private tour as it will be very emotional for her.  any recommendations?

Just looked at the overlord site.  Any other recomendations for a private tour.

D-Day Battle Tours, I’d highly recommend Monica Baan. Probably their other guides are just as good but she was wonderful. Phone +33 2 33 01 26 12 or take their name, drop the dash and mash the words together, adding the standard com ending.


We went during the 75th anniversary commemoration in June 2019. Even though we are amateur WW2 aficionados we learned a tremendous amount from her, plus her local knowledge and contacts  kept us out of the big crowds and we got some personal experiences we wouldn’t have on our own. She will tailor your trip for your interests.
