This was a great trip, but we expected it to be more focused on WWII history. Other than seeing Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery, the remainder of the trip was just about the local area. Still a great trip, just not what was expected.
Fabulous tour! Stop in Honfleur was not on the agenda but was a very nice surprise and great place for lunch. Guides were very friendly and informative. The only blemish was the hotel and dinner in Caen. If you could upgrade this, tour would be superb!
What an enjoyable tour. Our guide Florence was extremely knowledgeable. Met some lovely fellow travelers.
Overnight accommodations and dinner was subpar.
The guide was excellent. The Novotel in Caen was very good. The bus was more comfortable than the one used for the Loire tour. I'm so glad I got to see these wonderfully interesting places in spite of the bad weather! Thank you.
First day of trip was fantastic. However, we had to pay for drink with the dinner(inlcluded) meal. That seemed a bit cheap. On the second day we visited Mont St Michael and then were left at St. Malo for 3 hours. Then we were taken back to Mont St Michael and put on a different bus with a group returning to Paris. Wasted time that we could have used to see Reims on way back to Paris.
Helpful guides, delivered us efficiently to the major sites on the trip. The overnight accomodations in the Novotel in Caen were satisfactory, as was the dinner there.
This tour gives a good overview of what the region has to offer but don't expect to have much time in any one location. We felt very rushed at the D-Day sites and there was no time to go to museums or the visitors center at the cemetary. Mont St. Michel felt rushed too but there was plenty of time shop and eat at the more touristy locations.
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip - very packed itinerary but our guide - Layla - was wonderful and full of interesting information - saw more than we would ever have managed under our own steam in two days - just excellent - and much better standard hotel than I was expecting as well!
Highlight of our trip to France; a perfect break from Paris. I was worried some poor reviews of Paris tours, and the overnight to Normandy/Brittany is expensive. Day one was great, especially the small towns before Normandy. Hotel was fine, dinner was ok. St Malo and MSM were ok, hoards of tourists (it was a French holiday). The ride back was hot upstairs, driver seemed helpless or clueless even after mentioning it. Average age onboard about 60 and fit. A professional job.
The best part was that they made all the travel arrangements. Accommodations were very good for the overnight stay and bus was comfortable. Two dings were that St Malo and Utah Beach were too touristy without having anything unique over the other sites we visited. Second, I would have liked to have more time in some of the other places (the cemetery, Honfleur) rather than pack extra stops in.
Our guide was good, knowledgeable....
Very good but I would have liked more time in the Normandy invasion area
