I particularly appreciated the social, architectural and historical knowledge of our guide. Her knowledge of of the sites we visited was truly impressive. I was a little disappointed in the fact that even though our 2 day tour was a tour of 25 guests, we were integrated with another tour (different language) of 25 for bus transportation. This necessitated all information presented while traveling on the bus between sites to be heard twice in two different languages. But it was still an excellent tour, with excellent overnight accommodations. I had to change my tour date after booking the tour and the customer service agents (telephone) were very accommodating. Good customer service and good flexibility. Good value overall.
You really feel like you've seen Normandy after this tour, and the taste of Brittany leaves you wanting more! The guide was very friendly, funny and welcoming, and, being from Normandy herself, she was very knowledgeable. Not only did I learn a lot about the history of France, and Europe, I was also enlightened in regards to Norman traditions and the French way of life. Furthermore, as someone who didn't really know where she was going and was overwhelmed by the amount of things to see in Normandy and Brittany, I was grateful to be in the hands of an expert. I had a much better experience than I could have planned on my own!
My primary objective was to visit Normandy WWII memorials. I would have gladly passed up extended visits to small towns, wonderful towns though they were, in favor of spending more time at Omaha beach, the American cemetery and the British memorial.
Very good collective, hotel and food. The guide must carry an umbrella, but open, it can be a tall flag, which is seen would devote another hour to honfleur and one less elsewhere
Enjoyed the trip The guides were very friendly and explained the history of france in a wonderful way ! Thanks
