Le Havre Honfleur Excursion Reviews

If you're cruise ship is docked in Le Havre but you've already done Paris, consider an excursion to scenic Honfleur for a more low-key port day that still offers lots of cultural and historic attractions -- including a variety of excellent museums.

Took the Honfleur/Deauville excursion. Enjoyed Honfleur though it was Sunday so not much open. We did find a great caramel shop open near St Catherine's. The Deauville leg was a waste of time. Not the line's fault, but there was a film festival (I thought Woody Allen was dead) that required the bus to park far from the town center. Our guide said it was a four minute walk - she lied. After 20 minutes we reached the foot of the hill to the town center. Since we only had an hour most of us opted to just hike back to the bus. Stopped along the way to watch a riding lesson but otherwise a bust. Read Less

The tour guide gave us a tour of St. Catherine's Church and the town in general, then we had an hour to explore ourselves. By that time, the locals were starting to stream into the town, so it was a good time to leave. Read Less

Hard to give a fair rating. It was complete chaos on the ship trying to get tours together. Hundreds of people crowded around the theater and Wheelhouse with no idea what to do. Since this morning tour didn't leave anywhere hear time talked to the Princess Excursion Employee to see if I would make it back for my 1:30 pm tour to Rouen. She was VERY doubtful. Worked hard to get me on the first bus out to Honfleur to give me the best possible chance. Due to her help I did make my afternoon tour. Honfleur was a pretty quaint little village. I enjoyed walking around. Read Less

I really liked the town but found it was a bank holiday causing some places to be closed. The tour guide was useless. She knew nothing and you couldnt hear her. So we asked if we could be on our own. She didnt care. So off we went to explore a truly charming town. I wish it hadnt been raining and the bank holiday but we still made the best of it. See security issues at end of review. No security whats so ever when getting back on ship due to cruise ship being lazy and not prepared. You would think they never had cruised before and had no knowledge the French closed at exactly closing regardless of more than 50 people who had not been through security. Very very very unsafe in France. Shame on the Pearl! Read Less

Beautiful spot....
Beautiful spot.... great guide... a little crowded in town on market day.... thought the guide might have encouraged us a little more to stay out of the way of the locals who were trying to do their normal shopping.

Took the bust only to Honfleur and then we walked around on our own. Following a guide with a numbered stick and listening to their version of events is not my idea of tourism. Blend in with the locals and feel the village on your own.

Honfleur was a beautiful town and we had wonderful weather, however the guide kept talking about the beautiful cathedral and we walked around the outside quite a bit but only found out that it is closed between the hours we were there as was most things. That is fine but you should not sell a tour to 'see' something unless you get to see it completely. The tour guide kept walking and talking giving us no time to take photos which was very disappointing as we had plenty of time. Read Less

If I could I'd give our taxi driver a "10" rating - Marc was wonderful! We were tired by the time we got to LeHarve, but wanted to do something fun. We left the ship and found a line a cabs waiting to take us where we wanted to go. It was our great fortune that Marc was the next cab in line. For 125 euros, he took 4 of us to Honfleur, drove us around the city and showed us some great things and then dropped us of at the center of town. He said he be back in 2 hours to pick us up at the same spot. We had a delightful time in this quaint town - it was Market Day, so it was extra crowded, but lots of fun things to do and see. Marc was at the appointed location at the precise time and took us back to the ship, all the while telling us about this wonderful time in France. He was open to a longer time and would have charged a little extra. If you're going to LeHavre and want a great guide and driver, arrange ahead of time for Marc with Artisant Taxi of LeHavre.
