Our Normandy private tour commences in Bayeux, a captivating medieval town renowned for its well-preserved ancient architecture. Explore the town center, where you'll find a delightful array of excellent restaurants and charming shops offering opportunities to savor a delicious lunch and purchase souvenirs for your loved ones.

Visit the Bayeux Tapestry Museum

Undoubtedly, the highlight of Bayeux is its world-famous tapestry museum. Dating back to the 12th century, the tapestry is an awe-inspiring 70-meter-long masterpiece that recounts the historic conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy, who would later become William the Conqueror and King of England. Crafted from wool and cloth, the tapestry features vivid depictions of over 600 soldiers and 200 horses. A true gem of UNESCO World Heritage, this remarkable artifact will be explored independently during your visit, accompanied by our expert English-speaking private guide. Please note that guides cannot make any commentary inside the museum.

Explore the Bayeux Cathedral

Marvel at the architectural splendor of the Bayeux Cathedral, built in the Norman style and dedicated in the presence of William the Conqueror in 1077. Over the years, the cathedral underwent Gothic expansions, resulting in a captivating blend of architectural styles that enchants visitors to this day.

Continue to the Historic Town of Caen

Follow in the footsteps of William the Conqueror as we journey to the town of Caen. Begin your exploration at Saint Stephen's Abbey, also known as the Men's Abbey or Abbaye aux Hommes, founded by William in 1063. This majestic Norman structure remains a prominent architectural landmark in the region. Accompanied by your private certified guide, delve into the fascinating history behind William's vision for the church and discover the abbey, including the grave of one of England's most renowned kings.

Visit the Caen Castle or Caen Memorial Museum

At the time of William the Conqueror, the Château de Caen held immense importance in the Duchy of Normandy. Explore the well-preserved remnants of the castle and its ramparts, offering glimpses into the region's rich history. Alternatively, if you prefer a different historical experience, we can adapt the tour to include a visit to the Caen Memorial Museum. Delve into the exhibitions dedicated to World War II, particularly the Battle of Normandy. The museum also features a captivating display on the Cold War and a newly introduced immersive 19-minute film that enhances the understanding of European history.

Immerse Yourself in Norman History

Throughout this private Normandy tour, your knowledgeable guide will provide captivating commentary in English, ensuring an enriching and informative experience. Travel comfortably between locations in our fully equipped Mercedes minivan.
