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.

Romain rocks they. Normandy region. Bright, witty and fun to engage in all sorts on conversations with. He went beyond Mt St Michel and took us to a dairy farm where we met a wonderful family and tasted some great apple cider
Hats off to Normandy Tours!!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

This tour was ideal for a 2 day visit to the Dday beaches and Mt. Ste. Michel. We were picked up at the cruise ship terminals of Honfleur and Cherbourg for an additional charge. Guy was the guide, and he was quite knowledgeable and willing to squeeze in as much as possible on both days.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

A great day trip from Bayeux that my wife and I both enjoyed immensely. Our guide Jonathon was incredibly knowledgeable about the site and many other places we passed through on the trip, and he was very flexible in allowing us to see things at our own pace and to spend more time in the areas we found more interesting. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area.
