Fabulous tour. We appreciated the guide and learning about the history of Normandy along the way in addition to the informative tour of the Abby.

This is a must see. Most leave this out of a Paris first-timers visit, but this church was mindblowing.

Having skip the line tickets made entry to La Sainte Chapelle much easier and faster.
