    What to Expect
    This half-day tour is the best opportunity to taste the best of Normandy food: cheese and hard ciders. You will be guided by an agronomist that will help you understanding the farming practices and the transformation processes. You will go to one dairy where they make the cheeses of Normandy in Livarot.

    You will then go to two traditional farms where cider is brewed on site and you will taste all of them near Cambremer. Int the end, you will be taken to a small village classified as one of France nicest. All tastings are included.

    If there is time at the end of the tour, look forward to a surprise stop, Beuvron en Auge, one of france's nicest villages. The circuit is on the back roads and it will take you deep in the heart of Normandy. This tour is a unique way of discovering this beautiful region off the beaten paths.
