Our guide, Adrien, was prompt, flexible, extremely knowledgeable, and charming. We were delighted to discover that we were getting him for a different half day tour later. I highly recommend a tour like this if you are going to Mont St Michel.
Our guide and driver were marvelous. I saw and learned so much. Very pleasant hotels. With the walking and stairs I didn't have to worry about calories.
Very articulate and concise information on this 2 days tour. Excellent tour guide.
I recommend this tour to every one. This was an unforgettable experience!
Worth every penny.
Great day. Did independent tour and had enough time to do all we wanted. Long bus ride but that goes with seeing Mont St Michel. Loved it.
Very enjoyable. It was rainy but being on the bus and seeing the Normandy and Loire countryside broiught back many memories. in addition, the tour of the chateaux and Mont st. Michel were incredible.
Our tour guide, Dominique, was exceptional. Her knowledge and English was excellent. She gave us the right amount of information both on the bus while driving through towns and while touring the different sights. She also gave us great tips for our free time. It would have been nice to have a little more time at Omaha Beach and a little less time at the Graves, but that wasn't her choice. We highly recommend this tour.
This trip was very good except that the food on the first night at the Novotel Caen Hotel was the worst. It was like they just provided for the sake of providing Many people in our group left the whole plate as it is...some even said it is like dogs food. Overall trip was good but the last section on Chateaux of Chambord was too quick, they did not give us enough time to see it...it was just a rush. Driver was very good.
Would have wanted more time at Omaha Beach. The tour guide was wonderful, the bus was comfortable and our overnight accommodations were very good.
This was my and my husband's first multi-day tour. All in all we had a good time. Our guide, Corinne, was very knowledgeable and gave us information that made the viewing more interesting and added to our general store of knowledge. The bus was very comfortable. My husband has a bad back, and because the bus was never full, he was able to utilize the back row of seats. The windows all over were big and allowed great viewing of the sights. This is especially true on the small country roads in Normandy where we could see the thatched roofs on the cottages up close. Although there were adequate bathroom stops, the bus bathroom did come in handy and was clean and comfortable. We were lucky enough to have good weather for half the trip, so sites like Honfleur and the chateau Chenonceau were particularly beautiful. Sights like Omaha Beach and Mont. St. Michel were almost better in rainy ominous weather. The hotels we stayed in were quite comfortable, modern and clean. The breakfasts were delicious, with a huge array of pastries, cold cuts, eggs, fruits, etc. Lunches were up to us, and since I did research online ahead of time, we found a couple of really good restaurants. My main complaint were the dinners provided by the hotels. With a couple of notable exceptions, the dishes were not very flavorful and were in fact rather odd. When the kitchens fell back on traditional French cooking, it was much better. Frankly, I would rather have the option to pay for dinner myself. One thing we discovered is that the nature of the tour was a little hard-going for us. It would have been easier to be able to return to the bus when we got tired, and the early rising and little time between arriving at the hotels and dinner kept us somewhat tired. It is understandable, though, that a tour has to keep us going to make best use of the time. In retrospect we are glad we saw so much.
Time is enough for the trip, yet it'd be better to spend overnight as the travelling time is almost a double of the visit time. Still, if you wish to spend one day there, it's good enough!

Dinner at hotel was the one weak area. Breakfast was wonderful. Otherwise, wonderful trip. Great guide Dominique.
The bus was so comfortable and the place there is awesome!
overall, a very well organized trip! the coach ride was very long but comfortable. corinne, the tour guide is very knowledgeable indeed. despite the unfortunate gloomy weather, it didn't dampen our mood to witness and explore such a magnificent medieval architecture. only downside of the entire trip is the lunch which was provided which I really didn't enjoy considering after so many hours on the road, the highlight upon arrival was really at least a satisfactory meal!... the selection could have been better!
