Spent the day driving in Normandy and stopping at all the D Day beaches. This was a very moving experience standing on the beaches where so many lost their lives. This definately worth a day of your time if you are in Normandy. There still remains pieces of history in these small towns as a reminder of the war. We started at Sword beach and worked our way up to Omaha beach and the American cemetery. I wish we had had more time to continue up to Utah beach, visit the Canadian and German cemeterys. You will need a whole day and a car to see these sights. Take time and walk down on the beaches and reflect on what happened that day.
Read the dates of death , and ages of those who lost their lives when you tour the cemetery.
This was a must see for anyone who had a relative who fought in the war.

I booked on-line a one day tour with Overlord Tours. It included visits to Omaha and Utah beaches along with a visit to the town of St. Mere Eglise, where American paratroopers landed in the middle of the village square , a scene immortalized in the 1962 movie " The Longest Day. " The visit to the American Cemetery Memorial.above Omaha beach was very moving.
Olivier , our tour leader, was very charming , informative and humorous. He provided us with very insightful informarion about the places we visited.
The office staff also was very informative in providing information of what was included in the tour and how to find arrive by train at the city of Bayeux ( departing point for all tours ) and the pick up point.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the D-Day beaches and surrounding areas.
It was a very moving experience to visit the American Cemetery above Omaha Beach.
I shall return, God willing, in 2014-the 70th anniversary of the Normandy Invasion.
Overlordtours offers other tours to the beaches were British, Canadian and Free French troops landed.
Lest we forget !

This is where history was made in early June, 1944. Today, the sandy beaches are in some places used for swimming and playing, but the forts and shelters still mark the place where men died in the struggle for the world we know today.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."
Binyon, 1914

Seven of us travelled by train from Paris to Carentan, where we were met by a private tour guide, Eva Ruttger from visitnormandybeaches.com. Eva was terrific and gave us an exhaustive tour of St. Mer Sur Eglise, Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, the American cemetery, and other stops. We had a great lunch, and she dropped us at the end of the day in Bayeux, where we were able to view the Norman tapestry before the museum closed, and then take a 6:30 train back to Paris. Eva made everyone feel comfortable and tailored to our needs, since we had vastly different age ranges-- from 85 down to 13 years old. I would highly recommend her services.

Lots of interesting exhibits, though not was well presented as the American museums at Utah and Musee Airborne in Ste Mere Eglise. Worth a trip just to see remains of Mulberry Harbour
