Instead of doing a bus tour, I have been researching and found that this may be doable on our own. I have read others who simply took the train from Paris to Caen and then a Taxi to the Memorial Museum at Caen, and booked a tour to the D-Day beaches which runs from the museum.
Specific questions are:
1. How far in advance can you purchase train tickets? I just tried to look for mid-March and it won't let me book.
2. Is it a direct train (no change in trains required).
3. What will a taxi run for 2 from station to museum and then return back? and are they readily available outside both the train station and museum?
4. How far in advance can you purchase the D-Day tour at the Museum - currently on line they only show December.
Finally, this actually sounds very easy and doable to me... just wondering if it is as easy as it sounds :)
