This tour will take you to the main sites of the Omaha sector in the morning and then will follow the footsteps of the famous Band of Brothers in the afternoon. Since this tour is based on the heroic actions of “Easy Company”, highlighted in Stephen Ambrose’s book and later the TV mini-series, it is recommend to watch the DVD episodes 1 and 2 or read about its main participants before joining this tour. True fans will be delighted to be taken onto the sites where the action actually took place! This tour is interesting because it takes you both to the D-Day beachfront and inland airborne sector.
