I was very happy with this tour. Our tour guide, Carlos, was very good, very knowledgeable, and experienced. The hotel we stayed at in Caen was very good. I would recommend this tour.
This tour company runs like a well-oiled machine. The sites were very moving and the guides give excellent information pertaining to the history of each stop. I highly recommend this tour.
I was very impressed with this tour. Probably because the number of people (21) was ideal for being able to relate well to our excellent guide and keep together when visiting the various locations. A good balance of time to do some of our own exploring .in Hornfleur and St Malo. Mont St Michel is one of the most incredible places I have visited and I would have liked a little more time there due to the number of visitors making it difficult to move around - but I realise that would not be practical due to the distance back to Paris.
We took this tour because we had been to Paris before and this time really wanted to get out of the city to explore some other regions. We were looking to see Mont St. Michel and stumbled upon this option.
Overall, I think this was a really great value and a great way to see other areas of France if you're interested. We actually visited Honfleur in addition to what's on the itinerary and found it to be a really charming little harbor town -- one of the highlights.
Something to note, when it says you "See the D Day Landing Beaches of Omaha" that's pretty literal as Omaha beach is actually considered a picture stop. I think everyone on our tour was hoping for a little more than 7 minutes there (actually the amount of time given), so just a little heads up.
Mont St Michel is pretty impressive but I'm glad we didn't see it as a single day trip. It's quite the drive and the two days definitely broke it up a little.
Well organised 2 day tour. Our guide was absolutely wonderful, a wealth of information about the history of each place on the itinerary. Adequate time allowed at each stop and the overnight stay at the Novatel was of a good standard. 100% satisfied
The entire experience with the many stops to cities not on the agenda was OUTSTANDING! Since I had not been in France before it was the trip of a lifetime and you/your company provided me with the greatest experience ever! THANK YOU so very much for being there to provide it. Joe
Our tour guide and bus driver were excellent! Our guide was very patient with the group, as one or two people on the tour did not follow the guide's instructions and suggestions. I would recommend this tour to everyone! (wear comfortable shoes for the walking on Mont St. Michel).
It is interesting, informative, the scenery is unequalled, and is a wonderful bargain for the price. The hotel where we overnighted was clean, and the food was excellent. Recommend bringing a disposable rain poncho, as the weather can change almost instantly!
This was long 2 day tour but quite enjoyable. Would liked to have spent more time at American Cemetary and probably less in Rouen. We went to Omaha Beach which I found out was not on the schedule. That is a must to see. The overnight accomdations were quite satisfactory as was dinner and breakfast (included). Going to Mount St. Michele in the morning was a good move and crowds by noon were forming. St. Malo was OK. Very tired by then and found a bistro to sit at for 2 hours. Would have liked to return to Paris before 9 PM. The tour guides, bus, and driver were all good. Impressive but long tour.
Super fun and thorough tour for only 2 days. Really saw a lot, nice hotel, excellent tour guide. Very cool!
Very fast paced itinerary and really gets a lot in during the two days. Our guide was extremely knowledable. Definitely a good value.
Outstanding itinerary, expert and informative guide, plenty of free time in Rouen, Honfleur, and St. Malo, a memorable trip for sure, highly recommended!
You get to see some nice towns on the coastline. Nice meal at the hotel. Breakfast is a great buffet. Normandy is very touching. Saint Malo was nice to walk on the beach. Many places are cooler and windy. Wear a light jacket.
We enjoyed it, especially Normandy and Honfleur. The tour schedule was switched around and we were at Mont St Michel in the cold rain. By afternoon, when the tour was originally scheduled, it was sunny. That was disappointing. The Novotel in Caen had booked two large groups at the same time so the eating arrangement was restricted, someone in the other group became a little upset! But we enjoyed meeting the travelers in our group. The switching of the buses for the return caused confusion and an inaccurate headcount caused us to be delayed leaving. However, the driver made up the time and we arrived in Paris on schedule. All in all a good tour.
The tour itself was wonderful- the sites that we visited. It was also good to have the evening dinner included as that is a good time to talk with fellow travelers. Unfortunately, the guide spoke English with such a heavy accent that all of the English speaking group continually commented that he was very hard to understand. In contrast, the woman guide on our return to Paris was extremely easy to hear and understand- wish we had had her for the entire trip. Would also like to have been directed to the visitor center for an introductory video initially at the American cemetery. The guide walked us all the way across to the water and then we had to walk all the back to the visitor center near the parking lot to use the toilet and the visit the Information area. Stopping there first would have saved time and given us some personal vignettes about the soldiers and the battle. Written information about each site would also be helpful since the guide was hard to understand.
