Overview

Mont St. Michel, or 'The Wonder of the WGare de l|est', is one of France's top attractions and the most popular destination in Normandy. Our day-trip transports you to this Unesco World Heritage Site on a comfortable coach ride from Paris, taking in the landscapes of Normandy along the way. As you approach this unique island, you will catch your first glimpse of its famous 10th-century gothic abbey. You will have four hours to explore at your leisure, with your multi-language audio guide. Wander through the village and its steep streets, visit the abbey with its medieval architecture, hunt out postcard-perfect views across the Atlantic, and watch as the tide rises around the island. Don't forget to taste local, seasonal products in the traditional decor of one of the many eateries. We have negotiated preferential offers in several restaurants, as well as discounts in shops and museums. The island is yours to enjoy at your own pace before you return to Paris by coach.

    It was a very long bus trip and very exhausting but even though it was raining, it was worth it. The view is magnificent. I bought only the bus trip with audio - guide. I'm not so sure if the audio guide was worth it. I had free time to go to the top of the Mont-St.-Michel and visit the Abbey and had lunch in the surrounding area. I did a lot of walking.

    A little disappointing. I recommend another form of transportation. It takes 8 hours to get there. 4 hours each way. You only get 3 hours to tour. Food is grossly overpriced and the tour guide spoke to us as though we were little children.

    A wonderful place to visit. Limited time. Hoping had more time to enjoy the place. Had a safe trip and very nice staff. Recommended to my friends. Alfonso, USA

    Love it! We will never forget how amazing Mont Saint Michel is, it sent us back in time and we enjoyed every minute.

  • 08-Jul-2019

    This was a well organised tour from Paris with the freedom of being an independent tour. It allowed for time to really explore the sight at your own leisure. The Mont-St-Michel is definitely a must sight to see!

    This is a place that you should really make the effort to go and see! The bus ride from Paris and back is a bit long but still very with it. (With the exception of the Viator bait and switch for my ticket prices!)The tour company operating the trip and the destination of course we're absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend the Mont-St
    Michel trip and if possible stay closer so you can spend more time there. It was possibly the best part of our 2 weeks in Paris, Amsterdam, and Bruges.

    We had a blast visiting Mont St-Michel. The drive took about 4 hours but it was well worth it. The walk to the top was very nice with great views. Highly recommended.

    The tour itself was a simple affair - basically a ride to and from Mont St. Michel. We did not opt to include the audio guide since we had our 5 year old son with us and wanted to allow him the chance to just wander. The site itself was incredible - by far the highlight of our trip to France. It was like Hogwarts and Diagon Alley had a baby. Highly recommend it and appreciated the air conditioned ride with well timed pitstops.

    We had a great time visiting Mount Saint Michael. We went on this self-guided with an English audio recorder. It was helpful to have some information about the things that we were seeing. We did not purchase the tour that included lunch. I am glad we didn't as it appears that they had less time at Mount Saint Michael to explore. There were plenty of places with a variety of price went ranges at Mount Saint Michael for you to eat. While indeed it is an all-day tour it is worth it at least to me.
