Welcome on the Normandy Brittany Tours website which I had pleasure creating and which I hope will convince you to come and discover our beautiful and unique region: the Mont-Saint-Michel bay.
My name is Claire Collin and I was born in Avranches, city of the famous bishop Aubert at the origin of the foundation of Mt-St-Michel. I grew up in Pontorson (a small town, 5 miles away from Mont Saint Michel), surrounded with the legends of this “Marvel” and with the rhythm of the most important tides in Europe in this immense bay.
I took a degree in languages and foreign civilizations (French, Spanish, English, and German), I finished my studies with a 6 months’ work placement in Madrid. I stayed there for 10 years and hold different roles in logistics, marketing and communication.
One day, as I was showing some Spanish friends la Pointe du Hoc, I decided that it was time I went back to ‘my country’. On this sunny day in October 2009, the scenery profoundly moved me and made me realize how much I loved my region and wanted to become one of its ‘ambassadresses’.
I then moved back to France and resumed my studies to become a national and interpreter tour guide. I graduated as a tour guide in September 2011 (recognized by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture) in French, English and Spanish. Today, I am now back living in Pontorson right in the middle of “Basse-Normandie” and “Brittany”. I offer circuits in minibus as well as my usual guided tours.
Aboard my 9 seater minibus, I will make you fall in love with our beautiful region. All bookings can be customized to suit your needs. The Mt-St-Michel bay, the landing beaches, Granville, Saint-Malo, Dinan, Cancale, Rennes. Let me guide you!
If you simply want to visit a monument or a particular spot in any of the towns mentioned above, Normandy Brittany Tours will also answer your needs. I can indeed join you at an agreed meeting point in any city to show you around.
Don’t wait any longer and make your booking now!
Normandy and Brittany will charm you!
