Omaha Beach Half-Day Trip from Bayeux
Our guide was fantastic!! Would love to have him again! Very informative and had many personal stories to add! The van was clean and the ride was comfortable. The only downfall was the price, but is probably worth it to avoid large tour group and have personal touch! Would definitely recommend!

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
Great tour with lots of good historical sites visited. Our guide was fairly new at his job but did a pretty good job at relaying the history of D-Day. He will definitely get better as time goes on.

A Gem for WWII History Buffs

D-Day tour - Utah Beach & Omaha Beach - suitable as a day trip from Paris
This was a day trip from Paris for my 12-year old son who is a WWII history buff. He loved it. He got to walk into Point Du Hoc bunkers and around the Sainte Mere Eglise town (setting of The Longest Day)—loved it. Mike was a fantastic tour guide—so knowledgeable with so many interesting background stories of soldiers and troop movements on all sides and perspectives. The tour van was great too. Couldn’t have been more perfect—a gem for WWII history buffs.

Normandy, Omaha: D-Day - From Airborne to Infantry
Dean is an excellent guide! He is very knowledgeable about the Normandy invasion and has a great understanding of the historical facts of that era. One can tell that he cares about communicating this knowledge to his guests and relaying as much as he can about the brave men who were a part of the invasion.

All moving to actually be walking where the war was happening. Fred brought it all to life with his knowledge. Especially affected by taps and flag lowering at the cemetery.

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.
