Itinerary

Day One

Leave your local area early this morning as we head to the Channel. Once in France we'll continue south-west, shadowing the coast, and should arrive at our hotel in the early evening.

Day Two

Rouen, the lovingly restored capital of Upper Normandy, is famed for its connections with Joan of Arc. After a guided tour you'll have time to explore. Stroll the narrow streets past half-timbered houses, or perhaps climb to the belfry of the Gros Horloge, the famous 16th-century astronomical clock, to take in the views.

We'll then continue to Honfleur. Head down to the Old Dock, visit the wooden church of Saint Catherine or the 17th-century hill-top Chapelle de Grace, and perhaps enjoy an early dinner (payable locally) at one of the restaurants that line the ancient harbour, before returning to our hotel this evening.

Day Three

Early this morning we'll travel along the coast to one of France's most beautiful and iconic sites - UNESCO-listed Mont Saint-Michel.

Connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway, this small island is dominated by a magnificent 11th-century Benedictine abbey, which attracts millions of visitors each year. Climb the winding cobbled streets, lined with half-timbered houses and little shops, to the top of the hill and you'll understand why!

Day Four

After a late breakfast, this morning we'll begin our journey home. We'll cross the Channel in the mid-afternoon, and should arrive back at your orginal pick-up point by mid to late evening.

Further Information

Meet at port option

To give you greater flexibility and allow you to travel on the date that suits you best, you may like to meet the coach at Folkestone Services (called Stop 24) on the M20, which is just a five-minute drive from the Channel Tunnel and a 15-minute drive from Dover. If you wish to do this, please select the county 'Kent' and the pick-up point 'Stop 24 Folkestone Services Saltwood' when booking. You will be notified of the exact pick-up location in your Final Travel Details, which you will receive approximately 7-10 days prior to departure. Further information and car parking charges can be found at www.stop24.co.uk

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meet at port option

If you have chosen a "meet at port" pick-up, this will either be Stop 24 Folkestone Services or Dover Port, depending on the final coach route. You will be notified of the pick-up point with your Final Travel Details that you will receive approximately 7-10 days prior to departure.

Journey time to Mont Saint-Michel

Please note that the journey time to Mont Saint-Michel is approximately 2.5 - 3 hours each way, but with suitable comfort breaks throughout.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made. Mont Saint Michel is not recommended for wheelchair users, due to the steep cobbled streets.

Channel crossings

Where possible, we will cross the Channel by ferry at the beginning and end of your holiday. However, we reserve the right to substitute crossings by Eurotunnel when necessary.

A long way to go for 2 days but a lot packed into the time although an additional day would have been nice. Hotel was fine - clean and comfortable with a good breakfast provided, although as it is on the outskirts of Rouen there was nowhere to go in the evening. They ran out of draught beer on the first night and bottled beer on the second! I personally don't like eating at service stations which we had to do on 2 evenings.

What we saw on trips was good but hotel too far away. Hotel was advdertised in brochure as 3 star standard with a welcoming atmosphere and a good restaurant with a bar, but it wasn't. No restaurant in the evening, only breakfast, hotel ran out of draught beer on first evening, then ran out of bottled. Staff very rude, did not speak english so could not discuss problem with beer or standard of hotel, very poor. Tour Manager should have stepped in and discussed these problems with management, but did not. Kept taking us to Service Stations for food instead of a nice French restaurant, although we did pass a few nice looking places.
Will not stay at an IBIS again. Very poor.
