Enjoy some cider, calvados , Camembert cheese tastings and a "Gourmet" lunch with an expert foodie of Normandy.


Starting in Caen, you will be guided through the wonderful market of Caen around the port.

Being myself a passionate cook and restaurant critic during the "off-season". I will introduce you to Normandy's best products.

Let's go to the village of Camembert to visit a cheese factory.

There you will see how the Camembert, Pont Lévèque, and Livarot are handmade for over 2 centuries.

After some tastings let's go for lunch in "The Fossard" a lovely restaurant in the Pays d'Auge, set by a water mill facing Normand cows pastures.

After lunch I will bring you to visit another Pont Lévèque maker

Then, let's go to Breuil en Auge, to visit the Breuil en Auge, Calvados producer.

And after some tastings ( at least five good glasses) we will head to Trouville to see and taste some oysters and seafood.

Still hungry ?

An organic icecream in Honfleur is waiting for you.

In Honfleur we will have time to visit the city which inspired Impressionists painters from Monet, E-Boudin, to W. Turner.

Back in Caen 7PM.

A Recent Review of this tour

Day 2 we toured the D-day beaches. We started in Bayeux, where we saw the Bayeux Tapestry which we loved! Then on to the beaches. My husband is a retired history teacher so he was on cloud nine! And Igor's knowledge of the history and the area added so much.
