We took a tour from Caen Memorial Museum and it was fantastic! Due to bad weather (heavy rain in Caen but nothing on the beaches luckily) there was not many people not even in the museum and the two of us were the only ones to see the beaches, so it turned out we had a private tour and it was excellent!
You can take the tour after you check out the museum and then both the exhibition and tour are around €60 (we had a discount card from our hotel and I think many hotels have it in Caen, you just have to ask) and the museum is definitely worth seeing.
The tour lasts 5 hours and there are 4 stops (Point du Hoc, Omaha beach, American cemetery, a place with bunkers still having tanks inside, Arromanches - the view on the artificial port made by Allies) as well as drive along the beaches. Our lady guide was fantastic, she was driving, explaining and giving us photos all in the same time :D
I highly recommend to everyone, we wanted to rent a car at first and do it all ourselves but this was much better!
Since it's a whole day trip (tour starts at 1pm and ends at 6) you can also have lunch in the Memorial's restaurant or cafeteria. The later is a bit expensive but the choice of food is great.
