Normandy Invasion Beaches Tour

Normandy Invasion Beaches TourToday is the 74th anniversary of the Normandy Invasion.  The Traveling Professor just completed a small group tour to the Normandy Invasion Beaches with 12 travelers.  There are quite a few ways to do a tour of the Normandy Invasion Beaches.  Some people do it as a one-day big bus tour from Paris, some people do a self-drive tour, some people hire a private guide.  Then, there is the issue of how many days to spend on the beaches and where to stay.  The Professor gives his opinion on all of this with today's blog post on how to do a D Day tour of the Normandy Invasion Beaches.
