Embark on a vibrant Shore Excursion from Saint Malo Port of Call and visit an incredible small town! 

Departing from St Malo Cruise Port, this Brittany private tour will take you to the small town of Dinan. First, we will come and pick you up at your ship in Saint Malo Cruise Port. Meet your English speaking driver guide who will go over the itinerary and program of the day with you. Then, board your air conditioned vehicle and depart for the small town of Dinan.

Visit Dinan town

The discreet small town of Dinan is located on the sides of a plateau above the Rance river. From afar, its castle surrounded by remparts dominates and protects the old town where half timbered houses and mansions built of granite stand alongside each other in a most harmonious way.

From the port, we will make our way up the steep Rue du Petit-Fort, which was Dinan’s main point of access until the 18th century. This cobbled hill with its half-timbered houses appears on many postcards. Reach the most attractive district of the town, Place des Merciers where you’ll find the best examples of the town’s half-timbered houses. Just opposite is the pedestrian street of Rue de la Cordonnerie, also known as ‘thirsty street’ as it has nine bars.

See the 13th-century castle that now houses the town’s museum and is the best place to start a tour of the magnificent ramparts, 8804ft (2684m) long, which are the oldest and most impressive in Brittany. 

During your visit, have a browse in the arts and crafts shops. Dinan has been designated as a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire and the town is filled with artists, sculptors, engravers, bookbinders, glassblowers and more. A visit to Dinan is a sure way to take a leap back in time.

After your guided walking tour, enjoy some free time for personal discovery. For those of you who are motivated and in good physical condition, follow your tour guide and climb the 158 steps to the top of the 40m (132ft)-high Tour de l’Horloge for wonderful views over Dinan and the surrounding area. On a clear day you can see as far as Mont-Saint Michel. Nearby Place du Guesclin is the site of the Thursday-morning market.

Visit one of the most beautiful villages of France on your way

As you travel from Dinan back towards Saint Malo, we will make a stop in one of the most beautiful villages of France: Saint Suliac. After leaving Dinan, we will follow the Rance River that has become a superb estuary that is bordered on each bank by local heritage sites that are varied, rich in history and legends.

Here, we will stop for a short time so that you may take in the charms of what a traditional village of Brittany looks like and get the local feeling of things. The village is nestled by the River Rance and is a delightful fishing village. It is also classified as one of the most beautiful villages of France.

Here, admire the pretty granite cottages and the village is also home to a 12th century church. For the most willing, it is possible to head up to the Virgin of Granfollet statue for a panoramic view over the estuary.

After the visit, return to Saint Malo and drop off at your ship. This private tour can accommodate a maximum of 7 persons per minivan. During the whole day, one of our English-speaking driver guides will be by your side to explain the history behind each Brittany tourist site you will visit.

The tour is fully customizable depending on your wishes. If you would like to add a visit that is missing from this description, do not hesitate to let us know!
