This was the most fantastic historical walking tour I’ve ever taken! Christèle was so kind as to rush from her home to meet us in the town center after I called her asking about the daily tour in English- which needed to be booked in advance during COVID-19 (I had been reading from an older guidebook which mentioned no reservations necessary) -but she kindly agreed to meet us anyway (in under15 minutes!). Due to this, our tour was effectively private (just 3 of us) and ran over 2.5 hrs as we walked through the beautiful medieval town of Bayeaux learning about it’s fascinating history from a thousand years ago through WWII. Christèle is a resident of Bayeaux, and had so many interesting local tidbits and anecdotes. We were even fortunate to get to see the back of a beautiful old private residence where part of the old city wall is located when she ran into someone she knew who invited us into the back. Christèle speaks fluent English, and was charming and funny in addition to being knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend this tour. It is extremely reasonably priced, I found another Bayeux walking tour on Tripadvisor on the English or U.S. site when I was trying to leave this review and was shocked by how much more expensive it was. In my opinion, it would be so kind to leave her a generous tip if you take this tour and enjoy it as much as we did- times are tough for tour guides and she really goes above and beyond- it’s clear she loves her town and it’s history- such a super experience for lovers of history/architecture/walking!!

This was great value for money and lots of fun - we learned a lot too (and hope we passed the test at the end!!). What a lovely city Bayeux is - so much to see and how much more we discovered through the tour. And what a tour through hundreds of years of history! Our guide spoke excellent English. We (especially my 82 year old Mum) appreciated the opportunity to sit down during the 2 hour plus walk. The pace overall was good.

The tour was a lot of fun and very interesting. Marie-Noëlle pointed out significant architectural details on ancient buildings and filled in with explanations of life in Bayeux at that time. She told stories of Bayeux from WWII. She also took us into the courtyard and garden of a beautiful private home and overall gave us a worthwhile, memorable morning just steps from our hotel.

My husband and I took the 1 1/2 hour guided tour at 5pm this evening. It was a really fun time walking around Bayeux and learning about so much history! Christele even took several photos of us; as we were privileged to be the only 2 guests on this tour! We learned a lot and had a very enjoyable time! We highly recommend the tour! Thank you again, Christele!

We really enjoyed our walk this evening 10 sept 19. Christele was the most amazing guide. So knowledgeable about her subject; made it so interesting and fun with lots of ways to remember historic facts. Highly recommend a very good way to spend 1.5 hours of your time and very good value.
