Stephen Ambrose D-Day Tours are unmatched in their historical accuracy.

Stephen E. Ambrose, author of the best-selling book, D-Day: June 6, 1944, personally designed our multi-day D-Day and Normandy Tours. They are based on thousands of hours of Dr. Ambrose’s interviews with veterans who fought on D-Day and walking the battlefields of Normandy with these citizen soldiers. Thanks to our decades of experience with the terrain and its history, we are able to present the best D-Day Tours offered by any WWII tour company.

We cover the entire D-Day campaign from the planning—Operation Overlord—to the landing on June 6, 1944—D-Day to the Rhine—to the battles that raged in the inland breakout region beyond the D-Day beaches for 80 days until the liberation of Paris—Normandy Tour.
