I went on the Omaha beach sector half day tour which consisted of a visit to point du hoc, Omaha beach dog sector (Featured within saving private ryan) and the american war cemetary at Omaha. Omaha beach is one of five invasion beaches within normandy. Two being American and 3 being used by Commonwealth forces.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and really set the scene for each location. He displayed amazing knowledge of the battles within normandy and the strategic and political context.
Point du hoc is amazing with full access to the real bunkers and gun emplacements for photos. The location where the Ranger battalion scaled the cliff is also accessable.
Omaha Beach is an amazing sight as it demonstrates the huge challenges the allies faced during the initial stages trying to gain a foothold within france. It was a privelage to visit these sights.
Because there is so much to see I would recommend a full day tour or more to make the most of the region.
