WWII Jeep Tour

NEW…..!!!, starting May 2014.

Let your dream come true………….. and visit the Normandy battle sites by guided tour in a genuine WWII Willys Jeep! 

We can offer you a half day 4 hrs (morning or afternoon) or full day 8 hrs private D-Day Tour in our own 1942 Willys MB Jeep. Together we will plan a route which suits your interests to give you a day you will never forget.

We will take the lovely scenic routes, driving thru charming villages that look like time stood still and past the hedgerows of Normandy to the invasion beaches, monuments and battle sites. Also thanks to the open character of the jeep, you can enjoy your ride to the fullest! 

Your half day tour could be as follows;
Starting at 9.00 am – 1.00 pm or 1.30 – 5.30 pm
-Church square Sainte Mère Église
-La Fière, Iron Mike
-Utah Beach
-Brécourt Manor
-Sainte Marie du Mont
-Angoville au Plain

Amount of people:
• Up to maximum of 3 adults or 2 adults plus 2 children.
• We cannot take bookings including children younger than 10 year old.
• If in doubt or this is suitable for you, please contact us.

Please take into account:

• YOU and our jeep are fully insured!
• Our jeep is registered at the; “Atout France” register! This is mandatory and is a register of the government where all “Vehicules de toursime”(vehicles used for transporting tourists) have to be registered. This register is for all vehicles used for transporting tourists and dismisses us from using a taxi meter and further taxi markings on the outside. You can only register vehicles when operating a business that meets all legal requirements.
• To keep you safe, we will not drive on motorways / highways and only take the scenic routes.
• Keep in mind that this is fun to drive, but its designed to be a military vehicle (meaning; functional workhorse) and over 70 years old with its charming character of that era. No luxury, seat belts and air conditioning. Getting in and out of it is less easy and space is limited at the back compared to a modern car. Some will experience space at the back as cramped.
• As it is an open vehicle without any heating, warm clothing and waterproof windbreaker to keep at hand is advised. There is plenty of space to store it, so take it with you. Better safe than sorry.
• If weather conditions are as such, that you would not have an enjoyable day, we can use one of our mini busses (if available). Of course the rate we charge then, will be accordingly.

Normally the Airborne museum in Sainte Mère Église is integral part of our tours. The average speed will be lower as with a modern car and for safety reasons, we will not drive on motorways / highways. Therefore it takes more time to get to the battle sites, monuments and beaches. The given timeframe will not allow us to visit a museum, unless you don’t mind missing some other interesting sites.

At this time, we provide tours mainly covering activities in the American sectors. The British sectors will be gradually included in future itineraries.

We currently offer three types of tour, which vary in length and coverage depending upon your timescales and interest.

The itineraries outlined for each tour represent a set format and are called Standard Tours.

Please remember that these itineraries can be changed to suit individual or group requirements, and such tours would then become Private Tours for the purposes of Pricing

"My wife and I spent a day with Ellwood in November and had a remarkable day. Ellwood's knowledge of the events surrounding D-Day and beyond are unparalleled and his warmth and sense of humor simply made it a day to remember. We were deeply touched by what we learned, and especially grateful for the time Ellwood took in his own home to help us understand all that led up to the battles of Normandy. We will do it again!"
