DDay Tours - private or group?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will have one full day this fall, September 20, to spend seeing the DDay sights. I am questioning whether a private guide (well-rated) is worth the extra money (360 euros) versus a group tour with Overlord (190 euros). We are both very interested in the history but we are not "hard-core" WWII buffs by any means. I am worried that the tour group experience may be too big and too hard to follow everything, especially since I have some light hearing loss? But, I'm also thinking 360 euros is a lot to spend since we aren't huge buffs; would it be money well spent versus allocating that money to a different portion of our trip -- namely, other tours in Paris? I'm okay with spending the money on the private tour as long as there really is a major difference in experience. If you think private vs group wouldn't really be a big advantage for our interest level, then I don't think it makes sense to spend the extra money. Help?
