Embark on one of our shore excursions from the ports of Le Havre and Caen to Honfleur and Mont Saint Michel with one of our fantastic English-speaking tour guides.

Mont Saint Michel, whose namesake bay boasts one of the world’s highest tidal ranges, is a truly memorable sight. Your privately guided tour begins at the Abbey, founded at the turn of the 8th century. The Abbey became a major cultural and pilgrimage center during the Middle Ages. You will visit the Romanesque Church, the Gothic "Marvel" with the monk's cloisters and refectory, the Knights Room, the Guest Room, the Undercroft, the Refectory, and more. The tour also includes several chapels: St. Stephen, St. Martin, Our Lady Underground, St. Mary Magdalene, and the 11th-century Crypt of the 30 Candles.

Next on your private tour is a tour of Bayeux, home to one of the oldest tapestries in the world. The 230-foot-long medieval cloth explains through its embroidered Latin inscription and pictures the events surrounding the 1066 Norman invasion of England. The tapestry is on view at the Bayeux Museum, which you will visit on your tour.
