Bayeux: American D-Day Sites in Normandy Tour

1. Bayeux: American D-Day Sites in Normandy Tour

Meet your guide at Place de Québec and then begin your D-Day exploration adventure, retracing history as you uncover the day of June 6, 1944. The first stop of the tour is Omaha beach, where the deadliest landings of the day took place. From your guide, learn about the landings here and the soldiers who risked their lives. After Omaha, visit Utah beach, the second location where American troops landed on D-Day. Next, visit the US military cemetery and for the chance to pay respect and honor the soldiers of World War ll.  The tour continues to Pointe du Hoc next, a breathtaking cliff offering lunar landscapes and a magnificent viewpoint over the English Channel.  The site was built as a key point of the Atlantic Wall by the Germans because it was the highest point between the Omaha and Utah beaches and provided a great observation spot to notice any arrivals from the sea. Your D-Day sightseeing tour of Normandy ends with a visit to the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the heart of the jump zone for the 82nd Airborne U.S. forces.  Listen to stories of how paratroopers rained on the village, and how one of them famously got caught in the tower of the church. With options for both half- and full-day tours, tailor your experience to your meet interest and schedule.

What people are saying about Sainte-Mère-Église

My husband and I took an 8-hour tour of the D-Day landing sites and nearby places of interest. Our guide, Steven, was a wealth of information. He gave us a much better understanding of the events that unfolded that day as well as the military strategy behind them. The anecdotes and curiosities Steven shared provided many invaluable insights.

Steven was wonderful and kept the group engaged and informative on the battles, battalions and dates. Highly recommend.

The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting.
