1. Bayeux: American D-Day Sites in Normandy Half-Day 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 the US military cemetery 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 beach and provided a great observation spot to notice any arrivals from the sea. Tailor your half-day experience to your meet interest and schedule.
