OMAHA Beach - Day trip from Paris to Normandy in a small group (3/7 pax)
My daughter and I went to Normandy Beach. It was one of our favorite places. Regis, our guide was the best! He was so knowledgeable, patient, and kind. His English was very good! He dropped us off right in front of our hotel. We felt very safe with him. I would definitely book again with Viator.

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
We had a amazing day trip to Normandy. Of course our guide and driver made all the difference. Thank you John Baptiste for the best day ever. I was truly amazed at your knowledge of WWII and not just from a script. But rather understanding troop movements and the various battles and locations. I cannot recommend this trip enough. The small group made all the difference. Of the 10 days we spent in Europe, this was the best experience.

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
If you are looking to be emotionally moved, this tour is it! Such a dark time during WWII for many nations and to explore and understand the enormity of D-Day, is an experience I will not forget. I left with a great sadness for all those who gave their lives and a great appreciation for all who served. Thank you! Our guide Guiomme was also just fantastic!

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
We had the most amazing time on our tour of Normandy! Nyssa is a top-notch tour guide who loves what she does, and it shows! We were just in Paris for one week but wanted to make it out to Normandy somehow. This tour was the perfect way to take a day trip and see a few of the important places associated with D-day. We highly recommend this tour and any others run through this company.

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
Adrian was an excellent tour guide, friendly and extremely knowledgable -- took the time to explain all of the sites and answer questions. Standing on Omaha Beach was the highlight of the trip. If you have the time for a day trip to Normandy, do not miss out on this.

Fascinating Tour with a truly Passionate Guide

D-Day Omaha Beach Area Morning or Afternoon Group Tour from Bayeux
The tour was fantastic and treated with reverance and respect for the lives lost in the fighting. We saw sights which were historically important and awe inspiring. Our tour guide, Tom, shared plenty of fascinating information and data about the events but also passionately portrayed a compelling story of the history of the war. Would recommend very highly!

Normandy D-Day Small-Group Day Trip with Omaha Beach, Cemetery & Cider Tasting
I loved standing on the cliffs and looking out over the gray churning water. I can’t believe the courage those young man had that day. Going to the American cemetery later made it all very real. Our guide, Giuliam, was an incredible font of knowledge.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Most tours visit WWII cemeteries and memorials, so it’s important to dress and act respectfully.

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes to explore the battle ruins and beaches.

  • Some tours are wheelchair accessible, but it’s best to check in advance with your tour operator.

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.
