Kowledgable, experienced guides.

I particularly appreciated the social, architectural and historical knowledge of our guide. Her knowledge of of the sites we visited was truly impressive. I was a little disappointed in the fact that even though our 2 day tour was a tour of 25 guests, we were integrated with another tour (different language) of 25 for bus transportation. This necessitated all information presented while traveling on the bus between sites to be heard twice in two different languages. But it was still an excellent tour, with excellent overnight accommodations. I had to change my tour date after booking the tour and the customer service agents (telephone) were very accommodating. Good customer service and good flexibility. Good value overall.

A flawless experience!

You really feel like you've seen Normandy after this tour, and the taste of Brittany leaves you wanting more! The guide was very friendly, funny and welcoming, and, being from Normandy herself, she was very knowledgeable. Not only did I learn a lot about the history of France, and Europe, I was also enlightened in regards to Norman traditions and the French way of life. Furthermore, as someone who didn't really know where she was going and was overwhelmed by the amount of things to see in Normandy and Brittany, I was grateful to be in the hands of an expert. I had a much better experience than I could have planned on my own!

Good variety of species to see. Quite well laid out and our grandchildren were able to see everything in the tanks even though it was busy. Most did adhere to the direction arrows in the floor. English translation of information was displayed which was helpful. It’s a shame the member of staff at the entrance didn’t tell us she wanted to scan our Covid QR code rather than the code for our tickets as we thought we had the wrong format on our barcoded tickets which caused a lot of confusion!

Intersting and enjoyable !
