Our guide, Florence was excellent, knowledgeable and humorous. She spoke impeccable English and Spanish. I selected this trip because it met all the places we wanted to go. We especially loved San Malo. Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery were breathtaking and somber. (Do not select it if you want to see more of the landing beaches and museums.) The hotel accommodations were first rate and the dinner was excellent as was breakfast. The only criticism I have is the meeting site as we had two addresses given to us on the website, and one was incorrect. Luckily we had enough time to get to the correct meeting place.

Our guide, Pierre, was very knowledgeable about Honfleur and its history. He was engaging and witty. I thoroughly recommend this guided walk.

Pierre is an engaging and funny guide who was able to tell us much of Honfleur's history engrossingly in good English.

1h30 of visit and even more, with Pierre, a very dynamic, friendly, theatrical and humorous guide! We recommend!

Florence was fabulous!! Well planned trip with great points of interest.
