Join us in Normandy, France, for the only fully-immersive, historically-accurate World War II adventure tour known today.
This extraordinary once-in-a-lifetime D-Day paratrooper experience is no run-of-the-mill battlefield tour. It will leave you, as it did the paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions on D-Day, second guessing your senses, abilities, locations and yourself
while having to trust the other men in your "stick" to find,
reach and overtake your many objectives. Throughout the
in-depth, guided, immersion experience, participants will be transported back to June 6, 1944, and offered the
opportunity to wear the authentic uniforms and gear,
travel in the authentic period military vehicles, carry the
weapons, access restricted and private areas, conduct
multiple authentic ground operations and walk in the
footsteps of the 101st and 82nd Airborne Division's
paratroopers in and around the battlefields, drop zones,
villages and towns of the Utah Beach Sector.
To add an element of realism and to place
things into perspective, our fully-customized
and exclusive aerial reconnaissance
operation shows you exactly what the DZ's,
LZ's and other key locations look like from the
air, many of which look the same as they did
in June, 1944. Your trip culminates with an
unbelievable night operation that is sure to
raise the hair on the back of your neck.
