Embark on one of our shore excursions from the ports of Le Havre and Caen to Honfleur and Mont St. 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 of Mont St. Michel 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 shore excursion from Le Havre takes you on a tour of the charming port town of Honfleur. At the heart of Honfleur, the old dock is full of character, from its old crooked-faced slate-fronted houses to the art galleries and cafes located in converted salt stores. Eugène Boudin and Claude Monet were among the famous impressionist painters who drew inspiration from the Honfleur port.

You will have time to visit a few sights in town, perhaps St. Catherine's Church, which is the largest wooden church in France, built by the town’s shipbuilders in the late 15th century. The Eugene Boudin Museum, set in a 19th century chapel, will be of interest to art lovers. The town’s farmer’s and flea markets are also fun places to stroll and shop (inquire for days and times).
