Are you looking for a mix of heritage and art in Normandy? If the answer is yes, we are inviting you to this amazing Normandy private tour to Rouen and the Giverny gardens
After being picked up in Bayeux, your Normandy private tour will begin with a 2-hour journey to Rouen, a port city located north of Bayeux, on the Seine river. It is the historic capital of Normandy and has kept an important religious heritage from the Middle Ages. There are so many churches in Rouen that its nickname is “the city with a hundred spires”!
Your tour will take you to the famous breathtaking Rouen cathedral first. Built in Gothic style, it is the biggest religious monument in the city and, in our opinion, it is also the most beautiful. The Rouen cathedral is the second tallest in the second tallest in the world after the Cologne cathedral, in Germany. Inside, admire the stained-glass windows which date back from the 12th century. You will also discover the graves of several Dukes of Normandy, including the well-known Richard the Lionheart, who became Richard I of England in 1189.
During this Normandy tour from Bayeux, you will also have a chance to explore the old Rouen, with its well preserved medieval houses and cobbled streets
If you are hungry, your guide will point out the best places in Rouen to have some lunch or a quick snack.
After that, your private tour of Normandy will take you to Giverny, about an hour away from Rouen. Claude Monet, the founder of the Impressionist movement, had a house and lived in Giverny for 43 years. Many of his paintings depict the scenery of his garden and the surrounding area of Giverny and Vernon. Enjoy some time for a tour of the painter’s house.

Great wine tasting trip – A tour through beautiful country with a knowledgeable tour leader to visit wineries. Each winery had a range of tastings and a good discourse on the growing of the grape and the wine produced.
Great experience and a lovely guide – With our very nice guide Daniele, a very well mixed group of members and some amazing wines, this trip was totally worth it.
Don’t miss this tour!! – We had a great time on the Alsace wine route tour. Flo was very friendly, warm and entertaining! We all fell in love with the picturesque little villages along the way and of course the wine was spectacular!
Great morning winetasting – We had a great time visiting two wineries in a morning, as well as driving through the Alsace countryside and having some time to explore the small towns. Great guide too.
Wonderful Trip! – Our guide Bridgette and the tour was wonderful and a perfect amount of time (and wine)! We loved seeing little towns and sampling some of Alsace’s finest wines! Memories of a lifetime!
