We just got back from 10 days in Normandy and Paris and it was the trip of a lifetime due in large part to Sarah and Alexander of ACSM. Alexander picked us up at CDG in a spotless Mercedes van and drove us to Normandy. Throughout our stay, he and Sarah were full of information and stories, easy to talk to, funny and fun to be with. There is nothing like having a French guide–so great to hear their perspective and family experiences!
We did a full day D-Day tour, full day to Mont St. Michel and Dinan, half day to Bayeaux and a stop in Giverny on our way back to Paris. The day trips were all in the very comfortable Mercedes van, with plenty of bottled water provided each day. Sarah knew all kinds of detail about every location, took us to out of the way places that other tourists didn’t know about and was eager to answer our many questions.
Sarah took us to one great restaurant for dinner and two incredibly special places for lunch that we would never have found on our own–the settings were breathtaking and the food fantastic at all of them.
I contacted Sarah back in January for our September trip and she responded with great information about our options for what to see during our 4 days in Normandy. Sarah answered questions promptly, and was so helpful in planning our stay. As our departure date approached Sarah sent maps of CDG and told us how we would meet up with Alexander and it all came off without a hitch, as did the return drive to our hotel in Paris.
I cannot recommend Sarah, Alexander, and ACSM highly enough–we will definitely call them again if we return to Normandy.
