Undeniably, Normandy is one of the key provinces of France, and it is certainly one of its richest and most delightful regions. The fact that Romans, Vikings, the British, Germans and French have all fought over it for over two millenia suggests just how much it has to offer. Easily accessible from Paris, each of our private Normandy tours focus on distinct facets of its rich history and culture. These private tours expose our clients to the area’s unique culture, architecture and culinary delights; and for each one we provide a private guide who speaks English as natural first language and is a university trained expert in the history and culture of Normandy and France. Our guides are also expert drivers who drive our clients in upscale vehicles, for whom the safety and comfort of our clients are paramount considerations.
We offer a wide variety of private Normandy tours, including both day trip and overnight excursions. Our day tours from Paris can include: Giverny, Rouen, Honfleur, Bayeux, the great Norman Abbeys, different day tours of the Normandy Landing (D-Day) Beaches, a day tour in the steps of Claude Monet (visiting Norman towns identified with the master), and another day tour that takes you to several charming villages in Normandy (and one that is not), such as Lyons la Forêt. Other options for day tours from Paris include the ruins of Richard the Lion Heart’s medieval fortress, Château Gaillard in Les Andelys, the compelling cliffs and resort of Étretat, and the André Malraux Museum of Modern Art (MuMA) in Le Havre.
An overnight Normandy tour allows our clients to see more of this historic province at a relaxed pace. Normandy hosts some of our favorite hotels in France, offering perfect choices within a wide range of comfort and cost. We will be pleased to design your own private tour of Normandy in which we put together an itinerary that is crafted to your individual requirements, whether it involves one, two, three or more days.
All of our private tours of Normandy from Paris are performed in upscale vehicles procured from a major car rental company, which ensures that they are always maintained perfectly, and they are always new, often brand-new. However, we are also able to arrange private helicopters, which, of course, permits you to see more within the course of a single day. For this service we work with leading professional helicopter companies with the most competitive rates. A popular Normandy helicopter day tour from Paris includes the island and abbey of Mont Saint Michel in the morning and the US sector of the Normandy D Day sites in the afternoon.
