Private Two Day Tour of Normandy
Our private Normandy two day tours are designed to make the best use of your time. They also allow you to choose two full days of touring, possibly from the three most popular full day Normandy itineraries: a day devoted to Giverny, Rouen and Honfleur, a day devoted to the Normandy D Day sites (in either the US, Canadian or British sectors, or all three), or a day devoted to Mont Saint Michel island and abbey. The last choice can be paired with either a tour of the Viking capital, Bayeux, and its eponymous tapestry, or with a visit of a charming rustic Norman village such as Beuvron-en-Auge or Le Bec-Hellouin, or perhaps a distillery, such as the Château de Breuil, to see how the apple brandy that is called calvados is made in Normandy’s Auge countryside.
If you include Giverny, Rouen and Honfleur in your Two Day Normandy Tour, we recommend seeing them on the first day, and following them on the second day with either the Normandy D Day sites, or the island and abbey of Mont Saint Michel. It is also possible to schedule the Normandy D Day sites for the first day, and to follow them with Mont Saint Michel on the second day. Mont Saint Michel is too far from Paris to reach early enough in the day to be ahead of the dense crowds of other visitors. It therefore has to be scheduled on the second day of a two day tour.
For our Two Day Normandy Tour, Paris Luxury Tours has several preferred accommodations to propose, including nice B&B options. One of our favorite hotels in all of France is the five star hotel, La Chenevière, outside of Bayeux near Port en Bessin Huppain, set in a lovely arboretum. It is ideal for this Normandy two day tour, and you are bound to remember its cuisine, copious breakfasts and peaceful setting. We are also partial to the four star Château de Bellefontaine, on the edge of Bayeux, replete with its private park and swan-graced pond. For a three star establishment, consider the Hotel Churchill in the center of Bayeux, a short walk from numerous fine dining options, such as Le P’tit Bistro and L’Angle St. Laurent.

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the tour of the Loire Valley [Custom Loire Valley Day Tour from Paris of 2 chateaux and 1 wine estate]. Let me start by saying the best part of the trip was meeting you and listening and learning about the history of France and specifically Chenonceaux. Your comments and guidance throughout the day made the experience far more than just a sight-seeing trip. Lunch was great and so were Amboise and the wine tasting. I can’t thank you enough for putting this tour together for us, we will enjoy the memories for years to come.
