We are staying at the Mercure Omaha beach Hotel. We want
to take a tour of the American landing beach's and Point Du hoc, cemetery.
Should we go into Bayeux to get a tour? Half day be enough? Taxi or other?

Thanks, Larry

    A 1/2 day is not enougth.Maybe 2 days to see the total picture. which is beyond the beaches.Forget the taxi option.

    Hi there.
    Have you though of renting a car? Half a day is too short indeed and I would recommend two days if you have time but if you cannot spare two days, you could do a lot in one day if you drive around.
    From Bayeux, you can do a tour including the Pointe du Hoc (warning: Pointe du Hoc has a nice viewpoint & preserved bunker but the Cementary is in Colleville), Colleville US cementary (that's the big one you see at the end of Saving private Ryan), Port-en-Bessin and Arromanche (museum and what's left of the artificial harbour built after the landing).
    Bit rushed but doable. better if you leave la Pointe du Hoc.
