    A Personalized, Excellent Normandy Excursion
    Adrienne and her entire team constructed an excellent two-day Normandy itinerary that fit our tight schedule on the back end of a trip we scheduled separately in London. They arranged for travel between London and Normandy (Bayeux), hotel/dinner and a private tour. Our stay at Chateau Cheneviere lived up to the high expectations a friend had given us; the food and service were highly personalized and excellent. Adrienne also assigned Fred to be our personal guide for a day tour of the Normandy beaches and American Cemetery. Fred is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about WWII history and his friendly manner made for a memorable, emotionally moving excursion. We are grateful to the Albion team for helping create a a special experience for us.
    We enjoyed customizing this portion of your trip and so glad you enjoyed this once-in-a-lifetime moment. Please plan to return to Normandy so we may plan more extraordinary experiences for you. Thank you for your review and kind words.

    Normandy D Day Private Tour
    Group of 6 traveled from Paris to Normandy and back on a 3 day private tour as arranged by Albion Voyages. Albion was recommended to us by a friend, and I would like to return that favor to anyone who reads this review. We toured Normandy Beach, Utah, Saint Mere Eglise and much more. Our guide was a local who was extremely knowledgeable and exceeded our highest expectations - and a sweetheart. Albion is based in Normandy and was responsive, easy to work with (everything by email) and cost effective. Highly recommend Albion Voyages.
    Thank you for your kind words and recommendation. Please plan a return trip so we may show you more of Normandy especially the D-day sites.

    Amazing trip!
    Wow we are so glad we booked a trip and tour to Normandy with Albion. Dominic our driver to and from Paris was early to arrive, easy to talk to, and gave us great information on all of our stops. He was friendly and professional. Our D-Day tour with Charles was exceptional. He has so much knowledge we could’ve leaned from him for months. He made sure to visit all of the sites that were important to us. My husband who loves WW2 history leaned a lot and loved this day of our trip more than any other. Thanks for helping us plan such a memorable part of our vacation.
    Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. Additionally, we will pass along your praise to Charles who is indeed an outstanding historian. Please plan to return soon so we may share more of Normandy with you.

    Amazing Normandy
    Amazing trip to Normandy. We stayed at the Lion d’Or, a delightful boutique hotel in Bayeux that is also a great starting point to explore the city. Our outings were meticulously organized, including Mont St Michel and the WW II sites. Adrienne checked on us daily! One of the best part of the trip was Rhetro, our guide for the WW II visits. He was knowledgeable, personable, and clearly passionate about keeping history alive. We would visit again in a heartbeat.
    Thank you for your glowing review. Personalizing your stay is just part of Albion's service(s). We will pass along your praise to the staff. Please return soon. More of Normandy is waiting for you.

    A very personalized tour snd transportation
    My 15 year old son’s passion is WWII and D-Day history. He desired to collect sand from and visit the beaches of Dunkirk and all five Normandy D-Day Beaches. We found barriers in that some tour operators were full and unwilling to consider our request and wishes, or that they were incapable to provide all we wanted. We found only Albion able to fulfill our needs. They provided us with luxury transportation from Paris after our Dunkirk visit snd took us to beautiful Bayeux where for the next four days they gave us tours to all five D-Day beaches (American , UK, and Canadian). Our assigned personal tour guide in Normandy Rethro was excellent. His English and ability to not only convey information but as well emotions was unequaled by any tour guide I’ve ever had in the past. He delicately balanced being able to instruct my very knowledgeable son and myself whom was not as aware of WWII history. Both of us were captivated by his passion of the subject matter and his depth of knowledge. Wonderfully he was able to impart facts into us as well as the emotions of WWII and Day. In conclusion my son leaves with his 6 jars of sand. We both leave fully satisfied with all we have seen and learned, more importantly we are fulfilled in having left behind a new friend Rethro. A thank you to Lauriane from Albion for her patience and work in putting together our personalized four day tours and Transportation from and to Paris.
    We are so pleased your customize trip created the once-in-a-lifetime memories you and your son desired. And, yes, Rethro is a fountain of information with a passion that makes the history come alive. We will pass along your kudos to him as well as to the rest of the Albion staff. Please consider a return trip as there is so much to see beyond the D-Day Beaches. Thank you.

    Friendly and Reliable!
    This was our second trip to use Albion. The first was in 2019. Albion was such a blessing to me and the planning of our trip. First, they picked us up at CDG and drove us to Bayeux. The driver was kind to allow us to make a quick stop to grab some food while delivering us safely to our hotel. He also helped us with our dinner reservations which needed pushing back due to our plane being an hour late. A few days later, a second driver drove us to our Paris hotel via Honfleur. He was very kind and courteous as he fought the Paris traffic. I wish I could remember the drivers names as I highly recommend them!
    We agree that our drivers are the best. Thank you for your kind words and we will pass along your praise to our entire staff. Oh! And we appreciate using Albion for your second trip to Normandy. Please return and we would love to serve you again.

    Mont-Saint-Michel...Go See Experience It!
    We enjoyed a private tour with Morgane to Mont-Saint-Michel. She was also our guide for Normandy the day before. We loved having her twice on our trip. It was a great day at an amazing and beautiful place. This is a place you don't want to miss on your trip to the Normandy region of France.
    MSM is celebrating its' 1000th birthday this year. It was our pleasure ensure you able to experience its' magic and splendor during this special time. Of course, we will pass along your praise to Morgane for her outstanding job. Enjoy Normandy again some time in your future with Albion. We look forward to it.

    Albion Voyages were great. From the great itineraries prepared by Lauriane and her staff along with our drivers Christian, Yves and Charles. After our day with Charles, our son said it was one of his favorite trips so far. We will certainly pass your services on to friends and family!

    Tour was amazing
    Jean Rethro Lemieux was amazing. Not only his energy and knowledge, but his approach thoughtfully brought out the people and stories of the Normandy experience, after all, it was a group of individuals who made up the days, weeks, and months. If you have an option, I would strongly recommend having Rethro as your guide.
    Merci. Rethro enthusiasm brings Normandy to life during his tours. We will share your kind words with him. Please know Albion appreciates your review and look forward to working with you in the future.

    Normandy's finest!!
    Carole Duval provided us several days of amazing history as we toured Normandy. She grew up in the village at Omaha Beach and her family was immersed in France during the German occupation and the liberation by Americans and Allies. Her thoughtful insight into this part of world history is phenomenal and made this tour truly memorable for us. Kudos to her... you should ask ( demand!) that Carol be your tour guide of Normandy. Hands down a 5+ star experience! Thank you. Pk/Ck
    Carole is a special part of the Albion family. We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with her. Her knowledge is priceless. Please plan to return and allow Carole to share the rest of Normandy with you. Thank you for your glowing review. We will pass your kind words on to Carole.

We reached out to Albion Voyages to arrange a custom tour of Mont Saint-Michel and Normandy. Albion was always quick to respond to my request for quotes, provided exceptionally detailed itineraries, and was on time or early for scheduled pick ups. Their vehicles were new and clean. Their guides were knowledgeable snd interesting. They picked us up in Tours and dropped us off in Paris. Their prices were fair. I highly recommend their service.

My husband and I had only two days at the end of our trip to fit in Giverny and DDay beaches. Because of our tight time frame, traditional train/bus schedules didn't work. In one of his books, Rick Steves mentioned Albion Voyages as a possibility for a quick tour of Normandy. I emailed them, explained what we wanted to do and within a day, we had a working plan of how to get from Paris to Giverny to the DDay beaches and back to CDG for our flight. Not only did we have transport, we also had tour guides for each location.

Our experience exceeded our expectations. Albion's professional, efficient, knowledgable, and personal service gave us confidence we had made the right decision. From the initial contact with office staff to the driver to the tour guides, the process was flawless. We had never used a tour guide or tour service before so we had no basis for comparison; however, our two hour tour of Giverny gave us insight into Monet, his personality, and his art well beyond what we would have learned on our own. Our guide clearly loved sharing "her second home" with us. On the next day, our tour guide/driver for the Normandy beaches and surrounding area was phenomenal. He had an impressive depth of knowledge of DDay and history making it possible for him to answer every question we had. He took us through the Overlord Museum offering insights about the day that went well beyond the written information available by each display.

Booking this part of our trip was not in our initial travel budget, but Albion Voyages made our trip a dream come true. The price was well worth it! We highly recommend their services.

Our cheese tasting with wine was one of the highlights of our two-week trip to France. Paris was great, Normande was wonderful, Amsterdam exciting, but this experience was unique. It was not the typical “taste the cheese” excursion, it was an exceptional evening of learning about different of varieties of French cheeses, how to recognize them, and how to taste them. Our hostess was cordial, personable, freely shared her family story, and exceptionally knowledgeable. We were met at the Bayeux Cathedral as planned, after a short walk we arrived at her home, and entered a lovely courtyard surrounded by a romantic, renovated, 18th century (I think) home. She offered a brief tour before we descended to the cellar to a cheese tasting room out of a move set. Sitting around a round table that made it easy to share our thoughts easily with our travel friends, cheeses were set before us on wooden platters, accompanying wine was offered, and we set about an intimate cheese tasting. After we finished off the cheeses and wine, our host walked us to a short-cut back to our hotel. Everyone in our group was still talking about the tasting a week later as we returned home. This is an opportunity not to miss, we would certainly do it again just because it was so enjoyable!

A private 2-day tour covering the D-day Invasion of Normandy with a driver and accompanied with a noted historian is the only way to have ALL those questions answered. We went to Paris and this was to be "a short side trip". It turns out it was the best two days we spent in France. Thanks to Adrienne who promptly answered all questions and set up everything. Of course, a very special thank you to Jean our driver and Sean our Historian who love what they do; Adrienne set the tour up but they made it memorable.

Albion was recommended by a friend who sung Adrienne's praises and we will now join that chorus.

We had an amazing tour of Normandy and Mont St. Michel planned by Marthe of Albion Voyages. Marthe did a great job listening to our specific interests while combining our interests with her knowledge and experience to plan a great trip for us.
Marthe was very accessible to us during the planning process as well as during our trip.
Our trip began by being picked up at the Train station in Paris and driven to Bayeux. We made a two hour stop at Giverny along the way. Once we arrived in Bayeux we stayed at the Villa Lara Hotel which was a great property. We spent two days touring the D-Day sites and one day touring Mont. St. Michel. We were accompanied all three days by our tour guide Mickael Patin who was excellent. He carefully planned our days to use our time wisely in order for us to see as much as possible. His knowledge of every location that we visited was incredible. Additionally, Marthe made dinner reservations for us each night in Bayeux at great local restaurants.
We would highly recommend Albion Voyages based on our great experience with them.

What an amazing tour! We opted for a private our and were assigned David who was very accommodating to adjusting the tour for our preferences and my mom's physical abilities. They arranged the train tickets for us and picked us up from the station (meeting us on the platform) and took us back- making sure we got on the correct train. David knew his history, had maps and photos to highlight the areas we were seeing and what historically happened at each location. His English was perfect & he really brought the entire experience to life.

This tour was my husbands dream come true. I am a 62 year old lady with attention deficit. He kept my attention!! He is fluent English. Probably speaks better than me. They picked us up at our VRBO. The driver wore a suit! He opened the door for Lar and I every time. I kind of felt sorry for how often he did. Geert gave us the option of eating lunch at a restaurant or grabbing a meal in a bag and eating at Utah beach. I could not say one bad thing about the tour. (And my kids say I’m picky)

Albion providing Francois as our guide was the highlight of our visit to Normandy. He is so personable and knowledgeable. A real gem. Albion provided first class service for all aspects of our visit from the pick up in Paris to the drop off for our ferry to the UK. We travel extensively and without hesitation give the entire Albion team the highest recommendation.
