One of France’s most rugged yet moving destinations, where the sweeping coastlines and rolling lush hills tell the story of historic invasions.
From the 1066 Norman invasion of William the Conqueror to the D-Day Landings of 1944, Normandy has unwittingly landed a role on the European wartime stage. Set on the French coastline, its beauty abounds with bucolic farms, wild beaches, and a medieval abbey. The historical narrative of the area is somber, yet it's that history that makes for an intriguing visit. Join Context Travel on one of our Normandy private tours.

David was amazing. I don't know how he spent the whole day in the cold talking without loosing his voice but he was an incredible person to walk the beaches of Normandy with. We learned so much about what happened after the initial wave of soldiers hit the beaches and the realities involved with the logistics of actually securing a military presence on a continent from our day together.

Looked forward to the tour for months and it was everything I hoped and more. Our tour guide David was just absolutely fantastic. His knowledge of the history of the area as well as the specific history of the D-Day invasion was incredible. He offered great anecdotes and factual tidbits none of us had heard or read about. He really brought the entire tour to life. He also made sure to provide us with time to see the tapestry and give us some great restaurant tips for our evening in Bayeaux.

William is knowledgeable, engaging and enthusiastic. Despite the COLD weather, we wandered through the key locations of America’s participation in the D-Day invasion. We enjoyed every minute and learned a great deal about this pivotal moment in history.
