normandy beaches

will be in le havre on sept. 30, 2012. on a cruise port of call. Are there any guided tours that would be an alternative to an expensive cruise ship excursion? Also would be interested in a tour to Mont Ste. Michel

In May there are usually 3 or 4 public holidays and also two British public holidays so although it's early in the season it may be wise to book. From my own experience of running a B&B it's one of our busiest months.

Next year the 1st (French PH) falls on a Wednesday, the 6th is a Monday and British PH, so there may be Brits taking long weekends in France, the 8th (VE Day) and 9th (Ascension) fall on a Wednesday and Thursday, so a lot of French will then take the Friday and make a very long weekend of it.

Are you on the Celebrity Constellation? We are on that ship and will be docked at Le Havre on Sept. 29th and 30th. My husband and I are looking for a tour of Normandy. As the other replies have indicated, you really need a group of 8 to make it economically feasible. Let us know if you are interested in connecting to try and make arrangements. We prefer to do the 29th if possible to avoid worrying about getting back to the ship on time on the 30th.

We hooked up with overlord tours and have a group of eight. I'll let you know how it goes.

Are you by any chance booked on Oceania Marina, Sept. 27th? If so, my friend and I would be interested in joining a group for a Normandy tour. The ship's tour is full and we are wait-listed. We'd like to be assured of going, so please respond and let me know.

Thanks,

Jari

2travelmavens, if you look at the dates the cruise was last year! I think you're a bit late.
