A cemetery for the eternal youth private guide


Driving along the famous Omaha beach to realize the courage of the american soldiers who landed here at 6. 30 AM on june 6th. Stop at the temporary cemetery. If the tide is low we can walk on the beach and pick up some little pebbles. We'll proceed to the american cemetery, 172 acres in extent, for about an hour, to see the beautiful memorial erected by Donald de Loo from New York and the headstones out of carara marble. 9386 servicemen and women are buried here, three hundred and seven of which are Unknown. The garden of the Missing is located behind the memorial and the semi-circular wall contains the names of the 1, 557 Missing. Depending where we start the tour we can end or start with another famous site: La Pointe du Hoc immortalized in "the longest day" where the rangers climbed a rocky cliff with ladders and ropes. Extremely impressive place where many bunkers were totally destroyed . A moonlike lanscape.
We'll end the tour with the little town of Arromanches with the artificial port.

A Recent Review of this tour

Marianne is a classy Parisian, now living with her husband Guy (and excellent driver!) near Normandy. She recommended the Hotel Mathilde in Bayeux and it was fantastic. Marianne is extremely knowledgeable about D-Day and specifically about history from 50 years ago and back. She also taught us so much about the US Cemetery. As an inactive US Army officer and Company Commander, I now understand D-Day and how the Allied Forces tactically achieved a significant victory - a turning point of the war.
