During this half-day tour, you will have the opportunity to visit all the most significant US battlefield sites of D-Day,

Departing from Bayeux, you will first reach the coastal battlefield area of Omaha Beach. Your guide will explain to you why on this place there was one of the boldest and most successful large scale invasions in military history.

After a short drive, you will be taken to the Pointe du Hoc site which is located between Utah & Omaha beaches. You will discover the lunar landscapes of this place which was a focal point of the amphibious assault by U.S. forces during the early morning hours of D-Day, 6 June 1944.

At the end of the tour, you will stop at the Normandy American Cemetery, in Colleville-sur-Mer. Here you will have some time to walk around and pay homage but also visit the Visitor Center.
