What people are saying about Caen

Our guide, Florence was excellent, knowledgeable and humorous. She spoke impeccable English and Spanish. I selected this trip because it met all the places we wanted to go. We especially loved San Malo. Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery were breathtaking and somber. (Do not select it if you want to see more of the landing beaches and museums.) The hotel accommodations were first rate and the dinner was excellent as was breakfast. The only criticism I have is the meeting site as we had two addresses given to us on the website, and one was incorrect. Luckily we had enough time to get to the correct meeting place.

Florence was an excellent guide. Due to the weather, she made a couple adjustments to our schedule that made the trip! Give yourself about an hour to have lunch.

Intersting and enjoyable !
