Know More about this tour

Your day trip begins with pickup at your Paris hotel in the morning for the 3-hour drive to Normandy with your private guide by air-conditioned minivan (either a Mercedes Viano or VW Caravelle). You'll make one stop at a service station to stretch your legs and purchase drinks or snacks, if you wish (own expense).

When you arrive at Mont St-Michel, a shuttle takes you from the Parking area to the Unesco-listed village perched on a granite rock island less than a mile off the coast of France in a shallow bay. Your tour begins with a guided visit of the hilltop abbey, which was founded by St. Aubert ofAvranches at the beginning of the 8th century and became a major cultural and pilgrimage center during the Middle Ages. Admire the Romanesque church, the Gothic architecture of the cloisters and refectory, crypt, Knights Room, and various chapels.

Take a break for lunch (own expense), and then enjoy the opportunity to stroll along the steep-sided narrow streets of the village and its ramparts. When your time at Mont St-Michel finishes, you'll start the journey back to Paris for hotel drop-off.

    This trip was awesome! Even though it was a 3.5-4 hour drive from Paris, Milan (our guide) made it memorable. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the history of the abbey and gave a fantastic tour!

    En mi viaje a Paris quería hacerme una escapada hasta St Michel por lo que empece a investigar en las paginas de Tripadvisor. Veo esta oferta, por lo cual, y de acuerdo a lo que el propio SITIO PLANTEA, ingreso la fecha de viaje y la cantidad de pasajeros (1), verifico la disponibilidad (siempre de acuerdo a lo que el SITIO PLANTEA) y me acepta, por lo que procedo a pagar con mi tarjeta. A las 24 hs., recibo un mail informándome que "el proveedor solo toma a partir de dos pasajeros". Vale la pena acotar que al momento de mi reserva (y de pagar la misma), no había ningún tipo de restricciones o comentarios sobre el particular. Por lo tanto, vuelvo a ingresar en las paginas de tripadvisor y veo otra oferta de un tour privado, aparentemente de otro proveedor, realizo el mismo mecanismo de reserva, me lo acepta, lo pago y TRECE (13) días después, otro mail de las mismas características que el que recibiera previamente. Se disculparon, me ofrecieron una bonificación del 10% en otra excursion, quisieron explicar lo inexplicable, en síntesis: una vergüenza!!! Opte por reservar un billete de tren (Paris / Rennes / Pontorson y viceversa), viaje fantásticamente bien (sali de Paris a las 6,52 y regrese a las 23,12), estuve siete horas disfrutando del Mont St. Michel por mi cuenta y me salió muchísimo mas barato. Si tripadvisor tiene proveedores que no cumplen con lo pactado o el sistema de reservas es deficiente: HAGANSE CARGO Y NO LO MODIFIQUEN DESPUES!!!! No los recomiendo en absoluto!!!! Comercialmente son un desastre y jamas realizare ningún tour a través de esta agencia!!!

    This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday in France. Our guide was just amazing, knowledgeable and had a great personality, which is important as it is an over 7 hour return drive from Paris. I would recommend this tour without reservations.

    Good to know that you will travel with a cowboy in a van ! On the other end nothing to say, Mont Saint Michel is the place to see.

    It was a trip we wanted to do but we were putting it off. However, this time we decided to go. It was absolutly magnificent! The area allows you to time travel to another era. It was like a Disney movie. Indeed it was once in a lifetime experience. Milan, our guide was so good. He had all the knowledge needed and more, not to mention he was kind, patient and entertaining. We learned so much from him, and we hope to do another tour with him next time we are in Paris.

    You miss the lines and go around the crowds...private tour guides have a lot of pull to go in despite the enormous lines. They also know the days of the high tides and have car passes to get you closer to the monument.
