    Ok, are you going in 2022, departing in two days, or 2023?

    Have you checked the forum archives? In the categories list at the right of the page, select France > Normandy, Brittany, Paris & the Loire Valley. Claudia Sails did an extensive review last year. Below are links to her posts, but there will be good info in other threads listed as well.

    Markfao, we are currently on the Normandy tour, and it is absolutely stellar. Our tour director Eve is wonderful, and the sights and sounds of France are stunning. I would recommend coming in a day early to tour Versailles on your own and catch up with jet lag. We are on Day 5 in Port Crouesty. Bring raincoat and umbrella. Absolutely no one is masking in France - anywhere. Maybe 1 in 200. We masked in the airport and getting on the plane. We lost one couple due to a positive test on our very first full day, they had just come off a London/Paris tour and thought they were just tired. Guess not.
