Know More about this tour

Board an early-morning train from Paris, arrive in the historic city of Caen in Normandy at 8:53am, and find your private guide. From the train station, youll embark on a full-day, 10-hour tour of Mont-Saint-Michel and the surrounding sights. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Mont-Saint-Michel is one of Frances most-visited landmarks.

Before heading to the coastal landmark, though, youll enjoy a breakfast of croissants and coffee with your guide, and a brief walking tour of Caen, which was founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century. After youve gone for a wander, hop in your air-conditioned minivan and drive for 90 minutes through the pastoral countryside of Normandy. Before your arrival at Mont-Saint-Michel, you will stop in the nearby town of Avranches, which was once home to Saint Aubert, Bishop of Avranches the 8th-century founder of Mont-Saint-Michel.

Next, venture across the water to the destination itself. Break for an omelet lunch at La Mre Poulard (for an additional fee) before being led on a comprehensive tour of the Benedictine abbey and its stunning surroundings.

Once youve seen the sights, relax with a traditional sausage and calvados snack in a nearby village before heading back to your vehicle. The tour concludes at Caen, when you board your 6:54pm train back to Paris.
