Bayeux train station and city center
Depart from Bayeux in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and travel along the picturesque Norman coast to Pointe du Hoc, a German battery devastated by US soldiers on D-Day. 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. 

Return to the vehicle for the short drive to Omaha Beach and delve into the dramatic procession of D-Day events that unfolded on this beach. 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. 

Return to your vehicle after the explorative tour and then relax during the journey back to Bayeux.

Aiden, our guide, was wonderful! He picked us up at the designated spot right on time. His knowledge and insight into the locations we visited made our visit truly memorable. His engaging personality and sense of humor also made it fun. He made sure we got to the American Cemetery about 4:30 so we could see the flag lowering ceremony at 5:00. This was very moving and I'm happy we got to experience it. This is a great half-day tour and well worth the train ride to and from Bayeux. We were so happy we got to explore and have lunch in this charming village. I highly recommend this tour!
