By reserving this free tour you will have an experienced guide , with whom you will be accompanied at all times, and who will explain what happened in each position in great detail. In addition, and as you will see, this guide is one of the greatest disseminators of the Second World War in Spanish.

We will begin at Omaha Beach (Vierville) itself, where we will analyze how the bloody landing took place, and where the marines penetrated the German defenses. We will continue to the American Cemetery where the scene from the movie Saving Private Ryan was filmed. In addition, we will also see the bunker in which the German soldier Heinrich Severloh was, nicknamed "the Beast of Ohama" after killing more than 1,000 Americans alone during D-Day. The next visit will take us to the batteries of Longues Sur Mer , in which a position of naval batteries that were firing against the Allied fleet and against the beaches throughout D-Day is preserved. Finally, we will go to Arromanches Beach , in which the British established an impressive artificial port " Mulberry ”. End of Tour.

Sergio nos ofreció una gran visita a los lugares del desembarco y quedamos muy gratamente sorprendidos por su profesionalidad, conocimientos y capacidad didáctica. No nos hizo el mejor tiempo, pero Normandía es así y Sergio hizo todo lo posible por hacer de la visita una gran experiencia. Ojalá podamos ir a más lugares y que esté él allí para mostrarlos. Gracias a Sergio por su labor histórica y didáctica.

Sergio es un “friki” de la Segunda Guerra Mundial y es el guía perfecto para tener una aproximación de lo que supuso el desembarco de Normandía en la historia de la humanidad.
