Normandy Beaches Half-Day Trip from Bayeux
From US$ 86.26
Overview
Enhance your experience of Normandy and its intriguing historical heritage on a half-day tour of Pointe du Hoc and Omaha Beach from Bayeux. Delve into the turbulent past of the region with a knowledgeable guide and visit renowned D-Day battlefield sites situated on Normandy’s picturesque coastline. Pay tribute to fallen soldiers at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial and browse the exhibitions in the informative visitor center.

What to Expect
Depart from Bayeux in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and travel along the picturesque Norman coast to Pointe du Hoc, a German battery devastated by US soldiers on D-Day. Listen as your guide offers fascinating narration of the bloody battles that occurred here, and then capture photographs of fortification remnants blown to pieces by destructive bombs. 
Return to the vehicle for the short drive to Omaha Beach and delve into the dramatic procession of D-Day events that unfolded on this beach. Stop at two points at either end of the sandy stretch to appreciate the scale of the expanse and then head to Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial to pay tribute to fallen American soldiers. Feel emotionally stirred as you stroll around Europe’s largest American cemetery and then venture to the Normandy American Cemetery Visitor Center to enrich your knowledge of the region’s history. 
Browse exhibits that speak eloquently of the events that took place on Omaha Beach; listen to personal stories, narrative texts and interactive displays and appreciate the insightful nature of the museum. 
Return to your vehicle after the explorative tour and then relax during the journey back to Bayeux.

Dogs were not on the beaches; not sure if it’s pet friendly . I would google the question and then go from there. Especially if you aren’t taking an escorted tour , it may be allowed to take your dog.
