Shuttle Paris to Caen or Bayuex

I am traveling to the Normandy D-Day Beaches my flight gets in at 21:15. I don't want to navigate the trains at night or stay in a Paris hotel for one night. HELP!! Can anyone give me the name or link to a reliable shuttle,taxi or car company that will actually be there to pick me up. I heard some don't show up. I know I will pay 350-450 euros.

I know you said that you don't want to take the train at night, but for the record you should know that that wouldn't be possible anyway. The last train from Paris to Caen and Bayeux departs at 19:59. According to viamichelin.com, it's a three-hour drive from CDG to Bayeux. It could take you up to one hour to clear immigration/passport control, which means you wouldn't get to Bayeux until at least 01:00. Even though you're willing to pay dearly for private transportation, staying overnight in Paris and taking the train in the morning may well be your best option. The first train leaves at 07:07 and arrives in Bayeux at 09:29.

Would there be anyone there to let you in at that time? They don't usually run a 24-hr. front desk.

Your best solution is to stay at an airport hotel at CDG and travel to Normandy in the morning. You can take a train from Paris' Gare St. Lazare to Caen or Bayeux. For airport shuttles at CDG, Rick recommends Paris Shuttles Network; Airport Connection; or Paris Webservices. Bonne chance.
