Interesting and informative tour.

Gabrielle_J, Jul 2023
Marie-Noelle is very nice and is knowledgeable on the history of Bayeux. She speaks excellent English so no worries if you do not speak French. Would definitely recommend spending the morning with her!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
So nice about my english... I was very happy to tour with you.
Must do upon arrival in Bayeux!
Sara_U, Jul 2023
Christele provided the perfect introduction to Bayeux, and I highly recommend booking this tour. Most guidebooks overlook Bayeux and neglect its history. Christele guides you through it effortlessly, pointing out the passing of time through architecture, landmarks, and stories that make Bayeux come alive. She also provides tips to maximize your experience. I found this your most helpful to better appreciate both the Tapestry and the Cathedral before visiting. Christele is engaging, witty, and incredibly helpful to better appreciate the beauty of Bayeux.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you so much for your detailed review. Indeed we endeavour to point out the numerous activities Bayeux has to offer, such as our museums and of course our beautiful cathedral, among many others. I truly appreciate your very sincere review. PS: I love the "witty" to describe the way I provide my commentary :-)
The Tour guide was great....
MELISSA_L, Jun 2023

Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you for sharing your impression of our tour. I am delighted you are considering returning to Bayeux, there is so much to do and see! We appreciate your review, we are glad you enjoyed the tour.
We cannot recommend this tour enough!!!! We are experienced travellers, and Christele's tour is at the very top! Book!
Kim_W, Jun 2023
Christele brought such enthusiasm to her subject matter. She brought history alive for us. I left feeling so informed.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
I so love the title of your review! One can feel your true appreciation for our tour. You have no idea how your review and others make our - already fabulous - job, a delight. Thank you so much for this lovely review.
Do this tour
Carmela_I, May 2023
Absolutely do this tour! Christelle provided us with an educational, fun filled, morning in Bayeux. Bayeux has an extensive history and in our opinion requires a guide in order to appreciate the town. The tour was exceptional and while there is quite a bit of walking (2 hours), it is not strenuous and can be done by most people. A great morning!
Response from Host, Jul 2023
I absolutely adore your title! Subtle! :-) Thank you for recommending the services of a city tour guide, as they are indeed able to show you many details otherwise overlooked. But also thank you for pointing out that, though two hours long, our walk is not too strenuous. It is important to share this type of details with other travellers. We truly appreciate your review.
Well worth it

Jodie_R, Sep 2022
Our guide was an excellent communicator, fun and knowledgeable. She has a passion for Bayeux and it’s history and she did an excellent job of sharing this. I recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for your words, particularly well chosen to reflect what we intend to convey, namely knowledge, fun and passion! We are very grateful for your review! :-)
Absolutely delightful and informative visit. A must do, especally for first timers to the city.
Liliya_G, Sep 2022
Christèle took us through the charming streets of Bayeux and transported us on a journey through time and history. She is so full of knowledge and entertaining anecdotes, that I could have listened all day. I really recommend this tour and Discovery Walks, and, especially, Christèle.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you so much for your praising review. I particularly liked the word "journey" as indeed, Bayeux's history is covering so many centuries of history and architecture that it feels like a travel through time. I am glad you chose that word, it conveys what we try to share. I am delighted that you liked my tour. We, "the ladies with a green hat" are keen to show Bayeux under its best light. Thank you again for your words. :-)
Excellent !!
Patricia_D, Aug 2022
Extremely knowledgeable guide who took us to all of the most important sites and attactions. She used the time allotted to us in a very organized manner.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you for your kind review. We indeed try to show as many highlights as possible of the historic Bayeux within the two hour visit. Sometimes a challenge, there is so much to show and to tell! I hope your holiday schedule gave you a chance to enjoy the rest of Bayeux. Again thank you for your praise.
Classic Architecture
