Our guide, Olivier, had not only tremendous knowledge about D-Day and the story, but imparted it with great passion. His storytelling of the individuals and the sacrifices was spellbinding. Omaha Beach Cemetery and hearing Taps while there will be a forever memory.

Utah & Omaha Beaches D-Day Group Tour from Bayeux
Point du Hoc and its craters, Omaha and Utah Beaches, and the American Cemetery. Each helps visualize the immense sacrifices made on that incredible day. Our guide Jordain had the stories, the photos, the maps, and even sometimes artifacts that were perfect for each stop. A very worthwhile tour!

Normandy D-Day Landing Beaches Omaha & Pointe du Hoc
Our tour guide was a history buff and made the experience so much more interesting for our family. The kids learned much more than they did in a class room and came away with a greater appreciation for the sacrifices paid by so many.

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
Jonathan was an excellent guide. We especially enjoyed the playing of Taps at the cemetery. It was interesting to see the German bunkers and learn about their construction and use. Seeing Omaha beach gave a feel for what the soldiers went through. The cider tasting was a fun way to end the tour.

  • Most tours visit WWII cemeteries and memorials, so it’s important to dress and act respectfully.

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes to explore the battle ruins and beaches.

  • Some tours are wheelchair accessible, but it’s best to check in advance with your tour operator.

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.
