This audio guide on the Normandy invasion beaches will allow you to self guide. The normandy invasion guide covers ground that I would normally visit on a private battlefield tour, inluding sites that many guides don't know about. The package includes a 16 page visual aid booklet.
Starting at Bayeux the tour leads you to La Cambe german cemetery, La Fiere causeway and Sainte Mere Eglise. Then past a POW camp to Utah beach. If you've seen the series the Band of brothers you'll remember the gun battery that they knocked out near Sainte Marie du Mont. The tour takes you to that manor house before going on to Point du Hoc where the Rangers climbed 100ft high shear cliffs to attack a gun battery. Then on to Omaha beach where you'll see an 88mm gun still in place and further along the site of the first cemetery then another 50mm gun on the first exit opened up on d day.
The American cemetery with it's 9387 graves overlooks Omaha beach. From there we'll continue past Port en Bessin to return to Bayeux.
Along the way you'll hear about many other sites and anecdotes.
