This was the trip of a lifetime!!! We never could have planned and organized a trip so detailed and just perfect in every way on our own!!! We had such a wonderful time with the group and everything went so smoothly.We loved all of the tours and the driver was prompt and professional. All tickets were purchased in advance and waiting for us upon arrival so all we had to do the entire trip was enjoy ourselves!!! There was not a single moment we had to “think”. Everything was handled for us. Ann Marie was a wonderful tour guide, her English was great and her knowledge of France, Art, History was wonderful. She made us feel like locals by the time our tour was finished! Thank you very much for helping us to live this great experience.

Good itinerary – D-day and Mt. St. Michel were standouts. I also really liked Loire Castles. Amazing…! We saw the most charming little towns. Experienced informative talks about the places we went, and had enough free time to wonder through the shops. Out tour guide Gilbert was superb. Every effort made to make our travel experience excellent .e was a wealth of information and his maps and storytelling really brought history to life. All well organized. Hotels are standards and their meals are OK. Bu we went out to eat in local restaurants. Can’t wait to book my next trip.
