My husband and I were visiting Normandy for the first time and made the good decision to do the walking tour with Marie-Noelle. She is so knowledgeable about the area and Bayeux history and architecture and a fun person. We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent!

Fantastically enjoyable and educational overview of 2500 years of local, regional, and national history. Heritage buildings, local anecdotes, famous personages, religious and political upheavals, all delivered in an engaging style that was a pleasure to hear. Kudos and many thanks, Christele! Highly recommended.
