What You Can Expect
Continue onward to Utah Beach, where soldiers of the 4th Infantry Division leapt from their landing crafts and headed inland under the orders of General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. The first day of battle saw relatively few casualties, but the same cannot be said for those that followed.
Visit the German Cemetery, the largest in Normandy dedicated to German casualties of war and the place where over 21,000 fallen soldiers are laid to rest. Spend time at Pointe du Hoc, one of the very largest German coastal batteries. The guns located here rained shells down on Allied soldiers across Omaha and Utah beaches, and the job of silencing them fell to a certain Lt. Col. Rudder and the U.S. Rangers of the 2nd Battalion.
Spend time on Omaha Beach, widely considered the most famous of the D-Day landing beaches. Gain an insight into the challenge faced by the Allied forces landing here under heavy German fire, and take time to consider their extraordinary courage.
The last stop on your tour is the American Cemetery and Visitor Center, the final resting place of 9,387 U.S. soldiers. The cemetery overlooks Omaha Beach and honors soldiers of all ranks in equal measure. Spend time walking among the marked graves and consider this fitting tribute to those who never made it home after World War II.
After nine hours discovering the Normandy battlefields, travel back to Bayeaux where your tour will come to an end.
This tour was amazing!
Had a very good trip and great guide. The tour was thorough and gave us the perspective on the level of commitment our troops made.
Very informed guide
Great experience but it was all about our guide, Francois. Request Francois and you will have wonderful experience!
Great tour!!! Our guide was Francois. We were picked up right in front of our hotel. He was very good, easy to understand and very knowledgeable on the entire subject of the D day landings.
Francois was wonderful!! Witty, informative, insightful. It was totally worth the cost and a most memorable day.

This tour was amazing!
The tour guide, Karen, was great. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The only down side of the tour, and this was no ones fault, was the road work that was being done while we were on the beach. The machines were making ear-splitting sounds that detracted greatly from our guide's dialogue. We had to leave the beach prematurely.
Our guide was fantastic, we took the tour on Sunday May 29 I believe our tour guide's name was Antoine. He could not have been better.
Awesome tour. Did the full day. Could use two days
