Savour the best of Normandy with a delightful Gourmet Chefs and Cider Tasting tour.
Discover heritage and culinary feats during your full day tour of Bayeux and Honfleur Villages.
Shaped by war and mystery, the region of Normandy is packed with gripping history and stories captured in its cobbled streets, war memorials, and intriguing Norman-Gothic features. While the region's sullen past is deeply entrenched in every corner, a visit to this medieval land is certainly anything but gloomy. Veering away from crowded tourist sites, this package presents the perfect opportunity to get an intimate look at Normandy's unique tradition. Blending taste and history, you'll begin with a zestful tasting tour of Camembert and cider followed by a fascinating history lesson as told in the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry. Refresh your senses in the picturesque fishing village of Honfleur and take time to wander through the quaint streets oozing with art and regional fare.
This tour departs daily from April to October 2020.
