1 st day: You will spend 7 hours with me traveling to the Landing Beaches of Normandy in a deluxe air-conditioned vehicle.

2 nd day: Bayeux and Caen: join me during the walk through Bayeux's and Caen's medieval streets that are flanked with beautiful, old half-timbered houses! ( another option is Honfleur)

3 rd day: our direction is the most popular attractions in France, the fairytale island of Mont St-Michel located on western the coast of Normandy. French are calling this isle the "Marvel of the Occident", some say that it is the pyramid of Keops, some describe it as an imaginary manor-house, stupefying as a dream palace.

A Recent Review of this tour

Svetlana was an extremely knowledgeable guide for the Normandy area and the DDay invasion. We saw sights that we would not have seen on a larger group tour. She was very flexible as far as any itinerary change and provided us with a great driver. I would highly recommend Svetlana for anyone needing a competent guide in the Cherbourg area.She has done her research.
