Our in-depth walking tour of Rouen with Marianne brought history to life. Her highlights of the town left you feeling a part of history. To finally see Monet's beloved cathedral in the flesh was remarkable.The pleasant drive to Giverny which followed was filled with anything/everything Monet and did not disappoint. Again, our driver Guy, was superb. The charming stops and French lunch, in a charming cafe afterwards, made the day one to remember for a very long time. Marianne is as thorough as she is fun.
