Knowledgeable tour guides, tour stayed on schedule, tour company handled all details. Would recommend the hotel pickup-drop off option.

Efficient use of time to see as many important sites as possible. Guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Hotels were utilitarian, but clean, comfortable with adequate breakfast. Only one dinner included. Buses were clean, modern, and comfortable. Chateaux not castles in the usual sense. Wine tasting was fun, but only three pours (red, rose, white)

Surprised that rejecting to provide dinner
Pioneer805351
, Apr 2019
Everything is very good, but on day 2, the guide told us that they do not provide dinner even it is mentioned in the tour description. And let us keep the bill to ask the refund from Viator. I double check with Viator that meal should be included and agree to send the bill to their follow up. At last, both of them reject to return the meal cost to us.

This is a great trip to get a feel for the area. The tour is for a large group of people, which is not really my preference, but for the price, this is the standard. The hotels were lovely. The only comment I would make would be recommending less stops so we could have more time at the prime spots. We left the hotel very early in the morning, and got there after 6:00 pm at night. Helene was our tour guide for most of the trip. She was amazing. Mostly we loved it. Just a little tiring.

The 3 day tour was good. We were moved by Normandy and the American cemetery and feel we had adequate time there. St. Malo was a delightful town that we enjoyed also. The first hotel was fine although the dinner needed improvement. Other reviewers made the same remarks about the food. Mont Saint-Michel was a wonderful experience, but we really felt we needed another hour or so. We had to hurry so at the end, we did not have a minute to look at anything in the shops--we barely had time to buy a book on MSM. The second hotel was fine and dinner was considerably better. The third day was the biggest problem. Absolutely not enough time at any of the stops. Perhaps the tour needs to have one of the stops removed to allow for more time at last chateau.

Guide Corinne who was with us for the first day and a half was excellent. Guide for remainder of the trip was difficult to understand when speaking English. She seemed much more at home in Spanish and, of course, French. Itinerary should include more time at the D-Day landing sites, including the Museum, and could eliminate one or two chateaus/castles. Accommodations and meals were outstanding. Buses and drivers were first rate. All in all, a good experience. Dave S

Our guide, Dominique was incredible with her ability to remember all of the historical details with such detail. Despite our bus breaking down in Rouen, we had an incredible 3 day trip and would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a great overview of northern France.

Wonderful tour! It is a great way to see the French countryside in a short amount of time. The hotels we stayed in were very comfortable. Our guide was very nice and gave us lots of great history about the areas we were in. I highly recommend the tour!
