Nel pomeriggio, visita le spiagge della Normandia, dove è avvenuto lo sbarco durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale.

Immergiti nel cuore della Bretagna durante la tua prima fermata, la città portuale fortificata di Saint-Malo. Fai un tour a piedi guidato lungo i bastioni che si affacciano sull'oceano e visita la Cattedrale di Saint-Malo. Goditi del tempo libero per il pranzo (non incluso).
Il tuo tour di 2 giorni culmina con una visita ad una delle attrazioni più iconiche della Francia, Mont Saint Michel, una storica abbazia in mezzo ad un'ampia baia. Cammina fino al villaggio collinare per un tour a piedi guidato dell'affascinante abbazia benedettina dell'VIII secolo, fondata dapprima come monastero da San Michele Arcangelo. Impara la sua storia, la sua architettura e vari usi che ne sono stati fatti nel corso degli anni, tra cui una prigione, un castello, una fortificazione strategica e un centro culturale e di pellegrinaggio durante il Medioevo. Oggi è un sito patrimonio dell'umanità dell'UNESCO.
In cima alla collina, potrai ammirare delle vedute della baia, e non perderti l'incredibile spettacolo dell'alta marea che arriva e circonda l'intera isola! Dopo il tour avrai del tempo libero per esplorare e fare acquisti in giro per il villaggio.

The bus was not your expected touring bus like Greyhound in the US. Seats very narrow and no room in front of you to store anything. Especially on the way back after 2 days to Paris. No overhead space was available. I would inquire about the bus type first. Mont St Michel stair climbing ONLY for athletically fit people. I am 66 and had a very hard time coming down the stairs.No hand rails down from the over 300 steps. Hotel was nice as were the various villages that we visited. All said, I like the tour but did not like the bus style.
Well planned,well organized, and well executed. The best part of our trip was Dominique, our guide, who was incredibly meticulous about the details and getting everyone around to everything. She was an endless source of knowledge about all of the places we visited and offered such great explanations about everything. I was concerned beforehand that we would feel rushed, but we had plenty of time to see what we wanted to. I was a little disappointed about not spending more time in Normandy, and not having time to see a museum there.Wonderful overall experience though.
Our guide was very hard to understand and said "eh" at the end of every sentence. We had very little time at the WW2 sites that were of interest to us. We stopped for 10 minutes at Omaha beach and weren't given any information or history about the events that took place there. Overall very rushed in the places that were of interest to us with very little information about the places we stopped in.
It is a packed two days, but nicely laid out. Wonderful trip through history. Easier to take a tour than navigate all the places via rail or car.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Very well organized, our guide Veronica was amazing, knowledgeable enough to teach French history. Our driver was very skillful, lots of narrow village roads.Dinner was OK, tiny portions, both my husband and our table mates were still hungry. Breakfast was much better.The woman at check in counter in Paris very rude.
The most important part of reviewing a trip is not about the attractions, but about the experience; and our experience was pretty bad this trip. The guides were one of the main problems. A great guide can make history come alive, and make you feel like you are a part of that history. These were not those guides. Our main guide, Veronica, was like that one teacher that puts you to sleep in class. Often times she during tours we would get basic insight into the various landmarks we would visit, but not much else. Compounding this issue was her tendency to say "eh?" at the end of every sentence. To make matters worse, she would often walk off on her own without accounting for the group. During our trip to Honfleur for instance, we became separated from her along with half of the other folks in the group. We all ended up going in separate directions trying to find her, while her monotone voice flitted in and out of range of our headsets! We ended up joining the other guide's tour, who was more lively, but about 10 times ruder. I saw her snip at three or more people during the time we were on the two day trip, including my father. Instead of "eh?" this guide would say "voila!" during every sentence, as if she was performing constant magic tricks. I understand that English is neither of these guides first language, but they were difficult to listen to. Neither guide would stop to allow the group to ask any questions at all, and on the rare occasions someone did ask a question, neither guide would repeat that question to the group and instead answer the mystery question over the headphones. The schedule was the other main issue. Spots like Honfleur and Saint Malo were given too much time and were mainly filler; the guide would only spend about 20-30 minutes with us and then let us loose for lunch. This was a problem in Saint Malo since barely anywhere was open for lunch until about 45 minutes after our guided tour. The places that demanded more time, like Omaha beach, got 15 minutes of time with no real tour. The graveyard at Normandy was such a short stop that I did not have time to walk to the end of it. On the plus side, the hotel we stayed at was recently renovated and very accommodating. The breakfast there was excellent with bacon, sausage, eggs, crossaints, and juice. Even if for dinner we could not agree whether the mystery meat we were eating was pork or chicken.Overall we would not recommend this tour.
great trip... comfortable bus and accommodations. Informative guide. All transports on time. Highly recommend.
Long days but guide and drivers were very good. Guides tend to walk to fast.for older folks. Very educational. Loved Normandy and it's villages. A little tiring but enjoyable.
