Ryan did a great job getting us to and around Normandy. American Cemetery is a must see. Long day but worth it. Loved the Overload Museum.

Omaha Beach Half-Day Trip from Bayeux
Our guide was fantastic!! Would love to have him again! Very informative and had many personal stories to add! The van was clean and the ride was comfortable. The only downfall was the price, but is probably worth it to avoid large tour group and have personal touch! Would definitely recommend!

Normandy, Omaha: D-Day - From Airborne to Infantry
Dean is an excellent guide! He is very knowledgeable about the Normandy invasion and has a great understanding of the historical facts of that era. One can tell that he cares about communicating this knowledge to his guests and relaying as much as he can about the brave men who were a part of the invasion.

Omaha Beach Half-Day Trip from Bayeux
We learned so much from our guide, who shared many details that brought the stories to life. The small group format was ideal...it was personalized and we had the time to experience the D-Day sites as we wanted to. With the afternoon tour we were at the American cemetery when they lowered the flags for the day, and the ceremony was very moving. Highly recommended.

This was by far the best tour of our two weeks in Europe. Our guide Gabby was excellent and very capable. Very emotional experience for me since my Dad landed on Omaha beach in 1944 with the US Army.

All moving to actually be walking where the war was happening. Fred brought it all to life with his knowledge. Especially affected by taps and flag lowering at the cemetery.

How to Get There

Omaha Beach is located along the coast of Normandy in northern France, 15 miles (24 kilometers) northwest of Bayeux. Although buses run to the beach from Bayeux, the easiest way to visit is by private transportation or as part of a guided tour. The American Cemetery lies above the beach, from where a long walkway heads down to the beach itself.

When to Get There

Tours run to Omaha Beach year-round, but it can get busy during peak summer season. If you’re visiting in July and August, try to arrive early morning or early evening to avoid the large groups of day-trippers. The most moving time to visit is during the annual D-Day Festival, which commemorates the anniversary of the Allied Landings with a program of memorials, parades, and beachside picnics.

The D-Day Landings

Omaha Beach was the location of one of the most significant battles World War II. On June 6, 1944, American troops were given the task of securing Omaha Beach as part of a strategy to land Allied troops along five points on the coast of Normandy—an operation code-named D-Day. Due to unforeseen tidal forces and stronger than expected German defenses, the American soldiers suffered massive losses—2,400 casualties in a day of bloody fighting. However, the landing was eventually successful with 34,000 troops securing the area for the Allies, and thus beginning the end of the war.
