Itinerary

Day One: 

Travel to Normandy


Leave your local area early this morning as we head to the Channel. Once in France we'll continue south-west, and should arrive at our hotel in the early evening.



Day Two:


Explore Rouen and Honfleur


Rouen, the lovingly restored capital of Upper Normandy, is famed for its connections with Joan of Arc. Spend the morning exploring; stroll the narrow streets past half-timbered houses or perhaps climb to the belfry of the Gros Horloge, the famous 16th-century astronomical clock, to take in the views.


We'll then continue to Honfleur. Head down to the Old Dock, visit the wooden church of Saint Catherine or the 17th-century hill-top Chapelle de Grace, and perhaps enjoy an early dinner (payable locally) at one of the many restaurants that line the ancient harbour, before returning to our hotel this evening.


Day Three: 


Marvel at Mont Saint-Michel


Early this morning we'll travel along the coast to one of France's most beautiful and iconic sites - UNESCO-listed Mont Saint-Michel. Connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, this small island is dominated by a magnificent 11th-century Benedictine abbey, which attracts millions of visitors each year. Climb the winding cobbled streets, lined with half-timbered houses and little shops, to the top of the hill and you'll understand why!


Day Four:


Optional 'A Taste of Normandy' excursion


Choose to spend your final day relaxing in the peaceful surroundings of your hotel, or join our 'A Taste of Normandy' excursion, on which you'll sample delicious, locally-produced cheese and brandy. We'll begin with a visit to the historic, 100-year-old E. Graindorge cheese dairy, to learn the secrets of three generations of cheesemakers, and then continue to the ageing cellar of the prestigious Chateau du Breuil Calvados distillery, for a guided tour and tasting.



Day Five: 


Travel home


After breakfast, we'll begin our journey home. We'll cross the Channel in the mid-afternoon, and should arrive back at your original pick-up point by mid-to-late evening.


Further Information

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.


Appropriate footwear

We strongly recommend that comfortable walking shoes be worn during the excursions on this holiday.


Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)


Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 7 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.


Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.


Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.


Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.


Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made. The nature of the terrain on this tour means that those with walking difficulties may find parts of the tour difficult.


Channel crossings

Where possible, we will cross the Channel by ferry at the beginning and end of your holiday. However, we reserve the right to substitute crossings by Eurotunnel when necessary.
