The retro Tour Normandy History

Behind Retro Tour Normandy, you will find Thomas, a man in love with its adoptive region.

Normandy, whose history is more than a thousand years old long, offers a wonderful time scale with its landscapes and architecture. From the first Viking invasions to the landing day during the Second World War, there are many centuries to look at, one at a time, town by town. It has been more than three years now that Thomas has settled in Calvados and offered for tourists and local people to discover these out of time landscapes aboard sidecars. Far from the usual visits, he was eager to show Normandy's heritage which was now his. With his team of pilots, he offers you now to discover Normandy according to your desires and bring back home a piece of Normandy's heritage.
