Three days outside Paris vs. three "day trips"

Jump to last reply

We, a group of 9 ranging from 15-50, will be spending four nights in Paris in early July, travel to Asia for two weeks and then return to Paris for three more nights. Our flight to Paris arrives by 9AM on a Wednesday and we leave late morning on a Saturday. I'm trying to debate the benefits of stationing ourselves in Paris and taking a day trip to Normandy/Mont St. Michel, another to Versaille, and spending another just relaxing in Paris - versus organizing a three day trip to Mont. St. Michel, Normandy and a small town like Camembert.

The latter option sounds more appealing to me, but I worry about the logistics. I read about a guide who would pick you up at the airport and do something similar to what I have described. However, I think the max he takes are 8 people.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
