This 2-hour walk around Bayeux was the perfect introduction to this medieval city that is just loaded with history. €15 cost a bargain. Christy did a great job of introducing centuries of history & then tying it up at the end.

This tour is well worth the money and time. I actually would prefer it to the museum tours. Christele was interesting and entertaining (and spoke excellent English). We learned things about the city of Bayeaux that we never would have discovered on our own.

Christele is a wonderful guide and leads a tight, well-organized tour of the city. I was left with a greater appreciation of Bayeux as its own destination with a long medieval history, rather than just a convenient base for D-Day tours. The 15 euros is...More
