travel to Giverney and D-Day beaches

Will be spending about 12 days touring the WWII landing sites....hoping to visit Giverney as well as Brugges . We will be using the train system. Need info on the best WW II tours, reasonable hotels or B & B's in the areas... This will be in Sept. '15. Buying train passes good sense or point to point? Starting point will probably be Amsterdam. Thanks

For the train rides implied above, a Benelux-France pass would not save money. The longer, faster legs, such as Bruges-Paris, have good discounts available for purchase about 90 days ahead. I would fly home from Paris, instead of returning to Amsterdam. Rick's France guidebook has his advice for Normandy sightseeing and hotels. Normandy tour companies have been fairly often discussed in this France forum, too.

The OP needs to read Jeff's post.
You can't tour the landing beaches by train.
