Take a step back in time as you explore one of the world's greatest megalithic sights, topped off with a visit to the completely enchanting town of St. Goustan.
Departing by coach you will first enjoy a panoramic tour of Lorient, known as the "city of five ports", before making the scenic drive to Carnac. Carnac is famous for its more than 3,000 prehistoric standing stones which were erected during the Neolithic period. Here, the famous alignments of menhirs, named Le Menec, Kermario and Kerlescan, offer you the unique sight of these hand-hewn stones that were erected by the pre-Celtic population of Brittany 5,000 years ago. Participate in a guided visit of the site before continuing on to La Trinite Sur Mer.
Once the former port of Carnac, La Trinite Sur Mer today caters to ocean-going sailboats and the picturesque small town now has one of the four largest marinas in Brittany. From here, your coach travels on to St. Goustan where you will make a stop. Enjoy time at your leisure to stroll through the heart of this enchanting little harbor town, exploring its quaint old streets that are lined with half-timbered houses. The town is often noted for being the place that Benjamin Franklin landed on a stormy day in December 1776, en route to seek the help of Louis XVI in America's Revolutionary War.
Following your independent exploration of St. Goustan, you will meet up with your coach and make the return trip to the pier in Lorient where your tour concludes.
