    4.0 - Good

    Really enjoyed each days iterary of events. Each day was interesting and well worth the travel time. I loved the variety of interesting things to see and explore from art, shopping, historical castles and cathederals to cafes and French Restaurants. Great trip and great people! Hotels were functional but not elaborate in great locations close to the highlights. Thanks for all that went in to making our trip very fun and memorable!

    The places we visited were interesting and enjoyable. A few long driving days to cover the distance required to get around France, but manageable. The optional extra winery tour was a disappointment as only two very young wines made available for tasting and the lunch afterwards at Amelia Canta was of a very low quality. However, the included Be My Guest and Farewell Dinner were of a high quality. The driver's driving expertise was exceptional and the Tour Guide kept everything running efficiently. The accommodation was good value for money. Being on a tour enables expedited entry to sites which is a bonus as the queue at Versailles was ridiculous. The highlights for me were definitely Monet's Garden and the Omaha Beach Memorial. Both truly memorable.
