In three days, you will cross Normandy, visit the Mont Saint-Michel with its abbey, and taste the way of life in the famous castles of the Loire Valley.

Mont Saint-Michel is a rocky island located in the biggest bay in Europe, rightly named "The Marvel of the Western World," and still one of the most famous pilgrimage centers since the Middle Ages

Meanwhile, the Loire Valley, known as the Garden of France and the Cradle of the French Language, is also noteworthy for the quality of its architectural heritage. Its historic towns count more that 300 chateaus in its area, among the most famous of which are Chateaux d'Amboise, Chateau de Villandry and Chenonceau.

The English speaking tour guide on the Mont Saint Michael was excellent. The English speaking tour guide on the Chateau Country portion was very poor. He talked to the exhibit and not to the listeners. He often stood in front of what he was describing. He was not knowledgeable about distances to walk.
