Tick off the best bits of Normandy in one day on this private tour from Bayeux. Enjoy the undivided attention of your private guide as you marvel at the famous Bayeux tapestry, then follow in the footsteps of Joan of Arc and Rollo in historic Rouen. After lunch (own expense), continue to Caen, where highlights include the Abbaye aux Hommes and William the Conqueror’s Castle, then take a tour of the magnificent Château de Falaise.
