See where the brave American soldiers gave their lives during WWII


This tour will take you back in time, in 1944, during the invasion.
You will stand on the Beach exactly where the brave American soldiers gave their life, Bloody Omaha.

Overlooking the Beach, in the American Cemetery, 9386 Soldiers are resting, all the Crosses are facing USA.
At Pointe du Hoc, a cliff of 100 feet high, you will realise the bravery of the Rangers who had to climb it during the Battle.

Lunch time in Sainte Mère Eglise, where a paratrooper stayed hanging at the church steeple.

Visit the church with the stained-glass windows.

It is important to see how Omaha and Utah are different.
Omaha, surrounded by high Bluff, Utah flat and marshy.

The last spot is an amazing story in the small village of Angoville au Plain.

If you wish to, we can make a stop at the German Cemetery LA CAMBE where more than 21000 German soldiers are buried.

Of course, these are only examples and suggestions of what we can see together.

Your requests are welcome!

A Recent Review of this tour

What a fabulous day with Brigitte! She listened carefully to our interests, designed an individualized route, and thoughtfully gave us space to reflect on the strong emotional response evoked. Her well prepared timelines, maps, and photographs enhanced the experience, as did her clear knowledge of both the historical events and the current best pathways and backways to observe them today. Knowing we had more days on our own, she carefully drafted a sequence of villages and monuments to best guide us.
