Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the 2-Day Normandy, Saint Malo and Mont St Michel Tour from Paris submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
We took this tour because we had been to Paris before and this time really wanted to get out of the city to explore some other regions. We were looking to see Mont St. Michel and stumbled upon this option.
Overall, I think this was a really great value and a great way to see other areas of France if you're interested. We actually visited Honfleur in addition to what's on the itinerary and found it to be a really charming little harbor town -- one of the highlights.
Something to note, when it says you "See the D Day Landing Beaches of Omaha" that's pretty literal as Omaha beach is actually considered a picture stop. I think everyone on our tour was hoping for a little more than 7 minutes there (actually the amount of time given), so just a little heads up.
Mont St Michel is pretty impressive but I'm glad we didn't see it as a single day trip. It's quite the drive and the two days definitely broke it up a little.Reviewed by: dkjkb6, October 2012
Well organised 2 day tour. Our guide was absolutely wonderful, a wealth of information about the history of each place on the itinerary. Adequate time allowed at each stop and the overnight stay at the Novatel was of a good standard. 100% satisfiedReviewed by: Heather K, October 2012
The entire experience with the many stops to cities not on the agenda was OUTSTANDING! Since I had not been in France before it was the trip of a lifetime and you/your company provided me with the greatest experience ever! THANK YOU so very much for being there to provide it.

Our tour guide and bus driver were excellent! Our guide was very patient with the group, as one or two people on the tour did not follow the guide's instructions and suggestions. I would recommend this tour to everyone! (wear comfortable shoes for the walking on Mont St. Michel).
It is interesting, informative, the scenery is unequalled, and is a wonderful bargain for the price. The hotel where we overnighted was clean, and the food was excellent. Recommend bringing a disposable rain poncho, as the weather can change almost instantly!
This was long 2 day tour but quite enjoyable. Would liked to have spent more time at American Cemetary and probably less in Rouen. We went to Omaha Beach which I found out was not on the schedule. That is a must to see. The overnight accomdations were quite satisfactory as was dinner and breakfast (included). Going to Mount St. Michele in the morning was a good move and crowds by noon were forming. St. Malo was OK. Very tired by then and found a bistro to sit at for 2 hours. Would have liked to return to Paris before 9 PM. The tour guides, bus, and driver were all good. Impressive but long tour.Reviewed by: David K, June 2012

Very fast paced itinerary and really gets a lot in during the two days. Our guide was extremely knowledable. Definitely a good value.Reviewed by: Gene H, September 2011
Outstanding itinerary, expert and informative guide, plenty of free time in Rouen, Honfleur, and St. Malo, a memorable trip for sure, highly recommended!Reviewed by: Richard S, May 2011
You get to see some nice towns on the coastline. Nice meal at the hotel. Breakfast is a great buffet. Normandy is very touching. Saint Malo was nice to walk on the beach. Many places are cooler and windy. Wear a light jacket.Reviewed by: BRENNAN D, USA, August 2010
First day of trip was fantastic. However, we had to pay for drink with the dinner(inlcluded) meal. That seemed a bit cheap. On the second day we visited Mont St Michael and then were left at St. Malo for 3 hours. Then we were taken back to Mont St Michael and put on a different bus with a group returning to Paris. Wasted time that we could have used to see Reims on way back to Paris.Reviewed by: LUCILLE R, September 2012
