What you can expect

Get on board this Normandy battlefield tour and come with us on a full-day visit to the key beaches, sites and museums linked to D-Day.

On the morning of June 6, 1944, thousands of soldiers from the Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy in an attempt to liberate French from the German occupation. This marked the beginning of a fierce and deadly battle against suprised but well-trained Nazi troops.

Among the allied troops, the Americans landed on two different beaches, later named Omaha and Utah. This Normandy battlefield tour will first take you to Omaha, where the deadliest of the landings took place. Even although bombings occurred before the landing itself, they failed to neutralised the German positions in that sector. Learn more about the landing and the following days at the D-Day museum right next to the beach.

After Omaha, the Normandy battlefield tour will take you to Utah beach, the second beach where the American troops landed. There, the “Musée du débarquement” will tell you all about the planning and the execution of D-Day from the American side. Your guide will also take you to the US military cemetery.

To finish the American sector, you will head to the Pointe du Hoc, a breath-taking cliff offering lunar landscapes and a magnificent viewpoint over the English Channel. Given the toughness of the operation, the Pointe du Hoc was given to Rangers to land upon.

To finish your sightseeing tour of Normandy, you will go to the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, heart of the jump zone for the 82nd Airborne U.S. forces. Indeed, the D-Day landings did not only happen from the sea! Paratroopers rained on this village, and one of them famously got caught in the tower of the church. The Airborne Museum retraces the involvement of the paratroopers and the airborne forces in the D-Day landings.

At lunch time, your English-speaking guide will point out the best places to eat depending on the location you are at. After the visit, return to the Bayeux.
