11-Day Normandy to the Bulge Tour

Normandy_D11

Introduction

Join us for 11 days of special focus on the Battle of Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge. We begin by visiting all five D-Day landing beaches, then trace the Allied advance further into Normandy to explore the triumph of seizing Saint Lo despite the perilous terrain of the hedgerows, and the Allied attempt to close the Falaise Gap. From Normandy we move to Belgium, where we visit Battle of the Bulge sites related to the encirclement of Bastogne and the Malmedy Massacre before paying a visit to Luxembourg’s American Cemetery where General Patton was laid to rest.
