GROUP TOUR INFORMATION
Is there any advantage to coming in a group?
Yes, besides the camaraderie of sharing together in your D-Day Memorial experience, you also may be eligible for a complimentary walking tour at no additional cost.
What do I need to do if my group wants to reserve a tour at the National D-Day Memorial?
First, decide on both a date and a specific hour for your planned tour. Next, make sure your group will have at least 15 members on the date and time you have selected. Groups with 15 or more patrons receive a complimentary guided walking tour included with the price of their regular admission fee, provided they have made a reservation at least two weeks in advance of their anticipated arrival. Finally, call 540-587-3619 to make your reservation.
What if I have less than 15 people in my group?
There is a flat fee of $100.00 for any group numbering less than 15 patrons. You may find that for the price of the admission and the tour this is a better bargain than waiting until the day you come to take a tour. The daily walking tours on the site are scheduled once an hour beginning at 10:30 AM with the last tour beginning at 3:30 PM.
Groups who have scheduled a tour in advance.
Please arrive at the Bedford Area Welcome Center 20 minutes early to check-in, use the facilities, and join up with your tour guide at the Memorial. Contact us as soon as possible if you see that your party will be arriving late. Groups arriving more than 15 minutes late without advance notification will forfeit their guide and any reserved shuttle carts. Please call this number to notify the Memorial of a late arrival – 540-587-3619.
If you are traveling in a group of 15 or more, please designate one person responsible for payment procedure. One payment is required for the entire group.
Unscheduled tour groups should arrive 20 minutes prior to the Memorial’s scheduled walking tours.
It takes approximately 20 minutes to purchase your tickets, register, use the facilities, and join up with the tour guide at the Memorial. Because the Memorial conducts timed walking tours, you face a significant delay if you miss your tour time.
Do you have any mobility assistance available?
Should you need mobility assistance for members of your party who are disabled, we do have a limited number of wheelchairs available at no cost, or you may reserve one of our five-passenger shuttle carts for an additional $30.00 each. Reserved tours are limited to a maximum of 2 shuttle carts, based on availability. Since the availability of these carts may be limited, please plan your trip well in advance.
