    Hey,
    There’s an article on contiki that says to budget around 75-100E per day, so I’m probably going to go with that, and then bring a credit card for anything extra.
    Im from Nova Scotia, Canada. Where are you from, SMD?

    I’m 25 from Toronto, Canada. I am travelling with my husband Shawn. We are going to do the credit card thing too, plus some cash obviously. Apparently there are debit machines around, so that would work too.

    What optionals are you planning on going to? I wasn’t sure about the Cabaret one in Paris (pricey) but I heard it was good.

    I’m hoping to do all of them. i added up all the prices and its only about $400Can for all of them. I might skip the dinner/cabaret though, that one alone is around $140. I was considering taking a train to Bayeux and touring the beaches of normandy/doing a WW2 tour instead of the full day in paris, so Im not even sure if I’d be back in time for the dinner/show anyways. The train/tour would cost the same as the dinner but would be an all day thing, so thats what im leaning toward,

    Awsome, I’d love some company. The tour companies I’ve been looking at (and that seem to be the best) are: http://www.dday-tours.fr/d-day_tour_american_east_and_british_sector.html
    http://www.normandy-sightseeing-tours.com/en/d-day-tours.html
    I was hoping to be able to do a full day tour, but they all start at 830am, and its like a 2.5hour train just to get there, so I dont think I’ll be able to pull that off haha, so I’ll probably be doing an afternoon halfday tour
