The American air and sea landings can be seen on one Itinerary.

Shortly after midnight on the night of 6 June, two American airborne divisions filled the skies over Normandy with gliders and parachutes. They secured four causeways and several key towns of the Cotentin peninsula.

Even if two assault battalions of the 8th IR landed 2000 yards south of where they should have been, they managed to take the position with very light casualty rate.

Omaha was the critical beach and on the 4 miles of sands below its 100ft high cliffs the Allied invasion came perilously close to failure. It was the spirit and determination of small groups of GIs that won through.

Take a tour with me and learn all details about American Dday.

A Recent Review of this tour

Elena is charming and an excellent tour guide. She is very knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions, and made excellent suggestions for our second day of touring Normandy on our own. The tour itinerary was perfect and gave us detail as well as a good overview of the events of D-day and beyond. She was able to key in on specific people and how they were able to influence the battles being raged. My husband and I have only positive feedback and would recommend her without hesitation.
