Listen as your guide offers fascinating narration of the bloody battles that occurred here, and then capture photographs of fortification remnants blown to pieces by destructive bombs.

Stop at two points at either end of the sandy stretch to appreciate the scale of the expanse and then head to Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial to pay tribute to fallen American soldiers. Feel emotionally stirred as you stroll around Europe’s largest American cemetery and then venture to the Normandy American Cemetery Visitor Center to enrich your knowledge of the region’s history. 

Browse exhibits that speak eloquently of the events that took place on Omaha Beach; listen to personal stories, narrative texts and interactive displays and appreciate the insightful nature of the museum.

We took the 5 hour tour to Pont du Hoc and Omaha Beach. It was fantastic. Our guide, Romin, was so knowledgeable about all of the history regarding WW2 not only in this area, but elsewhere around the world. He explained things in such a way that we could really feel the impact of what happened there and know what we were seeing on the tour. It was a highlight of our trip.
