Tour of "On Your Own"

Sorry in advance if I've posted this once already.

Received a lot of help on this forum about where to stay in Normandy, etc. Still need to know if I should do my research before the trip, rent a car, and then do the tour ourselves of the D-Day sights or do my research before the trip and then hire a guide. If I hire, such as BattleBus or Michael Chilcott, any suggestions?

We didn't feel like we missed out visiting these areas (Ste. Mere Eglise, Pointe du Hoc, the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-mer overlooking Omaha Beach and Arromanches) on our own, in September of 2002 - - so I will defer to others to advise you on guided tour options available in the area.

Since you are new here (you indicate this by the opening sentence - - and easy to see when you "click on your own name" - - the undocumented tip that Fodor's fails to tell new registrants when they first post here), I assume that you may have had trouble locating your earlier post. Using the click on your own name method, it is easily located, but as a convenience, I list its URL here for you:

Sorry, no advice, except to always double check you title before posting. We all make lots of typos (or at least I do) but I clicked on this one just to find out what "On Your Own" was and how or where you do a tour of it.

We were in Mormandy 2 yrs ago in late March. We rented our car in Paris and drove throughout the area and saw the beaches, etc. I can't see any reason to use a guide or join a tour.
