Rouen A Taste of Normandy Excursion Reviews

If your cruise ship is docked in Rouen, but you're planning to skip the trek to Paris, consider taking a Taste of Normandy excursion to get a comprehensive overview of Normandy's history and culture with visits to sights like the D-Day beaches and the Joan of Arc monument.

Appreciated tour of beaches, bunkers and cemetery but no museum or artifacts to see during this excursion. Very disappointed not to enjoy more of the history.

We got a thorough tour of the charming old squares. We visited inside the cathedral, which was impressive. We saw the clock tower (and later, with our children, we toured inside and were rewarded with a beautiful view of the city). We saw the Joan of Arc monument and church. We also walked through a food market and tried some local cheese and chocolate. However, I did think that since our tour was called "Taste of Normandy," we would have more tasting opportunities. The samples were a nice touch for a highlights tour, but shouldn't be considered elements of a tasting tour. That said, we did get plenty of free time to do some tasting on our own. Read Less

I may have confused this experience with the wine tasting if this refers to the visit to the apple farm and Calvados-making demonstration. Worth the time and money investment.

This was one of Viking's included excursions and we opted for the Commonwealth tour which took us first to Bayeaux to see the amazing tapestries. After lunch in Arromanches, we went to Juno Beach to the Canadian museum, then to the Canadian and the British cemeteries and to Pegasus Bridge. It was a long and emotional day but well worth it.
