Panzers in Normandy
A fascinating look at the role of Allied and German Tanks in the Battle of Normandy where we see an original Tiger tank, Shermans, Panzers, and many other vehicles in the French Tank Museum as well as on the D-Day and Normandy battlefields.
Depart from your chosen UK pick-up point and travel to the port where a coach interchange will take place, you will then join your tour coach for the Channel crossing. On arrival on the Continent we continue to our hotel (passengers joining the tour in Europe will meet the group at the hotel this evening).
Day 2 > Gold Beach, Juno & Villers Bocage
Day 3 > Operation Totalise & Saumur
A long but rewarding day as we travel south to visit the superb French Tank Museum at Saumur. This is France’s main museum of armoured fighting vehicles and covers WWI to the present day. Among the more than 200 tanks found here, many were used in Normandy and among them are a Panther tank, Tiger I and Tiger II as well as Allied Churchills and Shermans. We have plenty of time to explore this rich collection before returning to Normandy. (B)

Day 4 > Omaha Beach, La Cambe & Overlord Museum
Today we look at the American use of armoured divisions and start on Omaha Beach where Sherman DD tanks ran into problems on D-Day. We visit the Omaha Beach Museum and see a Sherman before moving onto La Cambe for a look at the decorated German panzer crews buried there including Tiger Ace Michael Wittmann. After lunch we visit the ever expanding Overlord Museum with an unrivalled collection of original WWII tanks in Normandy. We then follow Operation Cobra in the St. Jean de Daye and Le Dézert area. We also visit the site of Barkmann’s corner and look at how a single Panther tank held up the American advance here in 1944. (B)
