With an extra day in Bayeux, we chose this tour to learn more about this part of Normandy. Etienne picked us up exactly on time. He drove us through the Paye DAuge, in Normandy, through tiny towns and villages we would never have found on our own. The Camembert Cheese Tour was entertaining and educational. Etienne was educated as an agronomist, so he shared many interesting facts with us. We visited the ONLY farm left in Normandy that still makes its own Camembert cheese! Etienne provided us with a delicious homemade lunch that he made himself, even 6 hour cooked rice pudding ! Lunch was served on a small farm, amid the black and white cows as neighbors !
The afternoon Calvados Tour was fun, also ! Who knew that so many apple varieties went into the making of Calvados.
A surprise visit to Beuvron-en-Auge, a most beautiful small village in France was a special unexpected treat !
This all day tour was one of our favorites of the 26 Viator Tours we have taken ! Etienne's kindness and extensive knowledge made the difference !
This tour exceeded our expectations in so many ways. We visited four places with just one another couple. The guide, Etienne, was a professional in the field of agriculture so not only did we see camembert and cider in production, but we also learned so much about the two products and their growth and development. We also liked the fact that for each product we visited a small family operation as well as a more sophisticated one. The 'hands on' family stops were our favorite, imagine being with the cows who provided the milk of the cheese that we saw in the making and walking through the apple orchard where the family was busy harvesting, washing and crushing apples! It was a great day, well organized and lead by the perfect guide.
Totally loved our tour with Etienne. Very caring, well thought out and personable. Would do again.
Really nice and informative tour guide was really nice day.
Little pricey for what you get but that said was a nice day and good company.
