Our family trip to France was fantastic. We covered a lot of ground - Paris, Normandy, Brittany, the Loire Valley, Burgundy, Champagne, and back to Paris. All of the guides were excellent - they knew their respective locations very well and they were also very friendly and thoughtful to our family. The travel team's recommendation to have our guides and/or drivers take us from place to place was a great one. It made the trip very relaxing and stress free. The hotels/chateau's that we stayed at were very nice. We enjoyed the fact that they were each very unique and we looked forward to seeing what our next location was like. All 5 of us really loved the trip and it will always be a wonderful memory. It was the trip of a lifetime. I have already strongly recommended Zicasso and this travel team to others.
Our day in Normandy touring the American cemetery, Omaha and Utah beaches, and other key towns was the group favorite. Mont Saint-Michel and Burgundy were probably the next favorites. We all agreed that we could have spent another week in Paris and not properly toured it. I hope we can come back on a future trip.
The only thing that we would change was how some of the meals were arranged. We had a diverse group that preferred different types of food (including a vegetarian and someone who does not eat red meats.)All of the restaurants were fine. However, rather than having a limited menu that was already paid for with an amount of money that was unknown to us, it would have been better for us to know what the prepaid amount was, while allowing us to eat off of their regular menu. We ended up negotiating this in a few instances where we felt particularly limited. The restaurants seemed most concerned that we would not eat/drink enough to cover the prepaid budget and we would want a refund. We told them that we would waive the right to a refund and would most likely end up paying more, which is what happened in these few instances.Knowing that all of the family members really enjoyed Normandy the most, I think I would have added a second day covering D-Day in Normandy (although I am not sure what I would cut out.)
