Rouen Highlights Tour Excursion Reviews

Though many cruisers head straight to Paris from Rouen, it's a city with an ancient history (and the capital of Normandy) that's well worth exploring. . Opt for a city highlights tour to make the most of your time there, from the Gothic cathedrals to the half-timbered houses.

Rouen was restored after the war bombing, but seeing the castle on the hill was fantastic. How they built the huge stone walls in their century without modern technology or machines is remarkable.

Walking tour of Rouen with a guide.
Sail Date: April 2016
Walking tour of Rouen with a guide. They even formed a group for a few of us who could not go at a fast pace. We were the "slow" walkers! So thoughtful of them to do this. Mimi is wonderful.

Very knowledgeable Viking guide showed us through the old medieval city and cathedral. So much history here! Very worthwhile. Remarkable ancient half timbered buildings still in everyday use. Rouen Cathedral is finally unshrouded for the first time in many years after restoration and cleaning.( There is also a wonderful free light show projected onto the front of the cathedral every night that is fabulous and worth attending. Just a short walk from our Viking dockage.) Read Less

We did a walking tour of Rouen after a bus ride from our boat. We toured various areas and were able to see the normal weekend activities of the locals on a Saturday. We had time after our walking tour to spend time by ourselves shopping, eating, and exploring before taking the bus back to our boat. I especially enjoyed seeing how the local people spend their weekends. Read Less
