Meet your English Speaking Driver/Guide who is a local Expert of Normandy

Upon arrival at the meeting point, you will be welcomed by your English speaking guide who will be waiting with a sign bearing the name of the tour and with the Ophorus logo on it. Also, all our guides have a nominative badge so that it will be easy for you to recognize them.

Once you have met your guide, he/she will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, board your comfortable, air conditioned Mercedes minivan and begin to make your way to visit Honfleur.

All our vehicles are equipped with an on board P/A system which means that everyone will hear the guide's commentary during driving time, even if you are seated in the back of the van! Also, we have bottled water at your disposal and you can use our free wifi as you travel from one destination to another.

Visit the Charming small Town of Honfleur

Located on the Seine Estuary close to Le Havre and the incredible 'Pont de Normandie' bridge, the small port town of Honfleur is one of the most beautiful of the area with its historical center and vieux bassin port and marina. The historical town center still retains stunning half timbered houses, old cobbled stone streets that are located around Sainte Catherine church. The church itself is quite surprising as it has a double roof nearly all made out of wood. Dating back to the 15th century, the church was built by ship builders explaining why the vaulting of the two naves resemble the hulls of ships. 

Honfleur is also home to famous museums such as the Eugene Boudin museum dedicated to the 19th century painter who originates from Honfleur. Located on Erik Satie square, the museum is home to more than 100 art works of Boudin but also includes paintings from Courbet, Monet, Lebourg, Dufy and many more.

Then discover one of the most beautiful villages of France

After the visit of Honfleur, you will have some time for personal discovery as well as lunch. Then, it will be time to head towards your next destination of the day, the small village of Beuvron en Auge. Rated as one of the most beautiful villages of France (plus beaux villages de France), this village can be considered as a picture perfect postcard of a traditional Normand Village. 

Stronghold of the d'Harcourt family, on the Cider and Calvados trails, its half timbered houses, old covered market and surrounding manor houses make it a treat to discover. Here you will have some time to stroll through the village on your own for personal discovery.

End the day with a commented tasting of Apple Brandy

Finally, reach a local Calvados distillery located in the heart of the Pays d'Auge. This family owned estate produces some of the most famous Cider, Calvados and Pommeau of Normandy. Here, more than 25 varieties of apples are grown on the 30 hectares of orchards composed of either standard trees or cordons trees. 

After more than a century of production, the family has gained recognition worldwide for the subtle and delicate art of blends. After a short introduction to the different products that are distilled here, you will participate in a commented tasting of the local spirits. After the tasting, it will be time to return to Bayeux and this will be the end of our services.
