This tour transports you from Paris to the magical abbey-crowned island of Mont Saint-Michel, one of the most iconic sights in all of France, aboard a private bus. Offering you a hassle-free way to explore the island with plenty of free time ensuring you do not have to adhere to a rigid sightseeing schedule.
As you approach the Mount Saint-Michel, your guide will provide insight on the UNESCO-listed island. Listen to interesting anecdotes about the history of the abbey, whilst admiring the views of the island and the surrounding region of Normandy
Mont Saint-Michel began humbly enough in the eighth century, when citing orders from Archangel Michael himself a bishop built a church on this small and secluded rock island, which later expanded during the medieval era, attracting an increasingly large number of pilgrims.
Upon arrival on the island, your guide will give an orientation tour that will ensure you will see all the most important attractions, the most famous of them all, the hilltop Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel. You will then have a few free hours to explore the Abbey at your leisure and soak up the splendor of the interior with an audio guide tour or stroll the wonderfully picturesque streets in search of the perfect photo opportunity.
You can then choose from some of the many options for lunch, ranging from dining rooms serving rustic meat-focused fare to sophisticated restaurants with bay-view terraces specializing in seafood. Alternatively, you can stop by one of Mont Saint-Michels crperies and feast on galettes (buckwheat pancakes) paired with Normandy cider, for a more casual and characteristically Breton feed.
In the late afternoon, re-board the bus for the return journey to Paris, which will see passengers back in the City of Lights well in advance of bedtime.
