Link Paris arranged the train transportation from Paris, two wonderful nights in the beautiful town of Bayeux at a terrific hotel, an escorted day trip to Mont Saint Michel and a day trip to the Normandy beaches. Everything could not have worked out more perfectly or gone so well.

Our guides were outstanding. Not just knowledgeable, but studied historians, and just down-right nice people to spend a day with. They didn't just transport us to a place and dump us off. They were with us the entire time, giving us complete narration throughout the experience.

We learned not just about the main historical subjects, but about the people and life in France and the Normandy area.

You can do most of their tours in a day, including round trip transportation from Paris, but we loved spending the evenings in Bayeux, finding great restaurants and small town charm. The Bayeux Tapestry (not part of the tours) and the cathedral were an easy walk so they could be experienced on our own, and well-worth seeing. We didn't make it to the art or military museums in the town, but they are additional attractions.

If we return to Paris, we'll certainly consider other tour options from Link Paris. They treated us royally.

As part of an extension to a Bike and Barge Trip that we ran last summer on the Mosel, we took a group of 6 persons to Normandy on a tour arranged through Link Paris. Laura was excellent to work with. Everything she promised turned out to be true - and sometimes even more than she promised. Link Paris was flexible and worked with me to structure the 3 day trip exactly as I wanted it for my group. Even today non of them can quit talking about how excellent it was. The on-sight guide was amazing. Her knowledge of the area was great and she was not afraid to make suggestion about other stops to make along the way. I would recommend Link Paris for your next trip in Normandy - or whoever else they serve.

My husband and I booked a daytrip with LinkParis.com to the Loire Valley. Obviously once the pandemic hit we had to cancel the trip.We have spent alot of time trying to retrieve money from vendors throughout Europe, and some have been impossible to deal with. LinkParis has been the exception! They have been prompt about returning our inquiries and payment without any hassle. Dealing with this company has been a very positive experience! I would recommend this coompany and plan to use them when we are able to rebook our trip!

My sister and I had a tour scheduled for Lourdes and train travel which we were unable to take due to the Covid virus. The tour was just one of many travel items we had booked and had to cancel and seek refunds. This was the only venue that provided a real person to deal with. The refund was swift and complete. Would deal with LInkParis in the future.

We were ready to book a bus tour to Normandy when my son-in-law happened on the Link Paris website. Compared to the bus tour, we only had a 2 hour train ride, met at the train station by our tour guide. Our 8 person group allowed more of a personal tour. Morning at the Museum followed by an amazing lunch (included in price), Afternoon was spent on the Normandy Beaches, Cemetary. Our guide was lots of fun, very informative and we didn't feel rushed. On the way back to the train, she took us through small villages and beautiful countryside. Laura at Link Paris was very helpful and we even had our train tickets emailed to us before we left on our trip. I very highly recommended Link Paris for any part of your trip!

While staying in Paris, my wife and I wanted to make sure that we made the time to get to Normandy for a D Day tour. Many people will tell you that you need at least 2 days but I will say that the single day tour through Link Paris was exactly what we were looking for. They make our train arrangements to Caen then we were met by a small group guide at the Caen train station. I believe the guides are employees of the Memorial de Caen, a WWII museum. Our guide was Kathleen and she could not have been better. From the train station we went to the Museum. Museum time consisted of a guided tour with Kathleen, a fantastic lunch, then about an hour of our own time to visit the rest of the museum before heading out to the beaches and American Cemetery early afternoon.

We had a group of about 7 of us with Kathleen and a driver in a nice van. The tour and amount of time at each stop was orchestrated perfectly so that we were able to see all 5 locations without running out of time. I thought I knew D Day well but boy was I surprised. I learned so much more and am really happy that we went. My wife felt the same way. Yes it's a bit of a long day but it's truly worth it. If you're this close to Normandy on your vacation, contact Link Paris and set up this trip. You'll be happy you did.

I had travelled to Mt. St. Michel 30 years ago on a weekend trip. I wanted a one day trip and found Link Paris. A small Brittany tour company that took small groups that came by train. Note: I booked the train myself, which needs to coordinate when they know they have a group. Booking French trains early, 60 days advance, I got 1st class much cheaper than 2nd class. Did the same for Paris-Amsterdam. Bus to St Michel is 5 hours each way. Train is 2.5 hours. And this was an excellent tour with St. Malo and Dinan included. Marion gave us maps with hightlighted routes. Well organized. I looked for a comparable trip and only found privates guides for hundreds more.

Laura at Link Paris did a wonderful job of making sure that we had an optimal experience with our DDay tour, which was one of the main reasons my husband wanted to go to Paris. We had originally booked our trip from Paris to Caen on a day that turned out to be affected by the train strike. Laura offered us options, and I felt she went totally out of her way to ensure we had the best experience possible.

On this tour, we visited three sites: St Malo, Mont Sant-Michel and Dinan. To call this a tour is a stretch. The travel arrangements were fine. We had a 45 minute delay on the way out and a 2 hours delay on the way back to Paris. That made a long day even longer. I don't fault the tour company or the rail system for the cause of the delays.

Our tour guide was really more of a driver. He took us to three place, gave us a map and told us when to be back to the van. We are accustomed to tours meaning the guide takes us through the place and describes what we're seeing. St Malo was interesting but we just had enough time to walk the ramparts and return to the van. Mont Sant-Michel saved the trip. It was as magnificent as described and we had the time to walk through and read the brochure that described spots along the way. Unfortunately, the timing was such that we had to choose between seeing the Abbey and eating lunch. It's a good thing we brought snacks. Our last stop in Dinan was a waste. We got to Dinan after 5pm on a Monday and everything was closed. We walked up a steep climb after having already walked all day. The church was a pleasant surprise but I fear we couldn't fully appreciate because we were worn out from the climb.

I feel like we could have been better served by making our own arrangements to get to Mont Sant-Michel, spending 4-5 hours there and returning to Paris.

As I’m sure we have all unfortunately experienced during Covid, there are numerous companies in the travel industry which have pocketed our money while we got nothing. I’m happy to share, however, that Link Paris refunded the cost of my cancelled trip abroad in-full, within a week, courteously, and with no argument. In fact, after my refunded costs, I got a personalized follow-up phone call just to chat. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate their customer service and upstanding business practice. It’s a rare thing these days. They’re a class act.
