What's an online D-Day tour?
Over the years we have welcomed hundreds of visitors from all over the world to Normandy. In 2020 these visits stopped. The travel restrictions due to Covid-19 have disappointed so many people who planned to come to the D-Day beaches this year. Our LIVE INTERACTIVE tours bring the sights and sounds of the D-Day battlefields and beaches right to your living room, den or office - on your tablet, computer, laptop or TV screen. The tours are interactive - you and your guests can ask questions as we go along during the LIVE video link.
Tours are given in English.
How does it work?
Since the lockdown measures became the 'new normal' most people have become familiar with using Facetime, Whatsapp, Zoom, Skype etc. to keep in touch with loved-ones and colleagues. From June 2020 we are providing online, interactive D-Day tours using the latest cellular and video technologies - LIVE, not pre-recorded.
To join a LIVE interactive D-Day tour you only need 3 things:
1. A computer or tablet *
2. A reliable internet connection *
3. A comfortable place to relax and enjoy the tour
That's all - except for some tasty refreshments!
When do the tours run?
Private tours run 7 days a week during daylight hours, typically from 8am to 8pm (Paris Time). A time that works for you is agreed upon when you make a reservation, and scheduled in advance. Private tours can be tailored to suit your wishes and requirements.
If you're in the USA, then the best time is in the morning, due to the time difference. If you're on the west coast, Alaska or Hawaii then late evening tours can be arranged.
