Doing what: 2-Day Mont St Michel and Chateaux Country Tour from Paris
We enjoyed this tour a great deal. Comfortable buses, well organized, knowledgeable guides. One suggestion. The guides might remind passengers to keep their conversations fairly quiet in respect to others on the tour.
The bus ride from Paris is long, but worth it. The lunch provided is okay. There is a shuttle bus to take you to the bridge. I took the guided tour rather than liberté (on your own). From the bus stop, you have to walk to the entrance of Mont Saint Michel and then through the medieval town — you roughly climb about 350 steps to the entrance of the abbey. The tour guide was very pleasant and made sure no one was left behind. She provided great history and answered all our questions. The trip was timeless!
It was fantastic, I highly recommend it
Tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable about french history and Mont Saint Michel. Lunch which was included was ok. Bus travel to/from Mont Saint Michel was very good and comfortable. Not enough time given to tour surronding village given how crowded the village was, could of used another hour.
Everything went very well. An unforgettable day !
Beautiful!!!! My husband and I could not do the steps to the Abey, but my daughter did. Many shops and restaurants to keep you busy.
Outstanding excursion. Knowledgeable guides.
Knowledgeable and interesting guide. good trip.
A wonderful excursion from Paris. saw lots of countryside on the journey through Namandy and Mt St Michel was beautiful, all I expected. Unfortunately there was a strike the day we went and the Abbey was closed as well as the majority of the shops. The up side was that we got to see the non touristy side of the Abbey and township without the crowds. Isabella was a marvelous guide and made the history come alive.

Doing what: 3-Day Mont St Michel and Chateaux Country Tour from Paris
We had a great time. The Castle looked just like the pictures! Would have like a tiny bit more time in the village. Lunch was very good, but I don't like Salmon. Is it possible to request certain meals according to your allergies? This was never stated but if it is possible it would have been nice to know ahead of time.
The guide was great! She was funny and knowledgeable. Never caught her name, but really enjoyed the tour.
Would do this as an independent view....when we arrived it was lunch waited quite a while...ended up leaving lunch and going straight to place to have a good look Round....if you have bad knees etc....be very careful ....
I really enjoyed touring the old Abbey. The problem had to do with logistics. There are no bathrooms on the bus. That means you wait 2 hours until you get to a restaurant that has 3 stalls for ladies and 3 stalls for men. There must have been 3 or 4 buses at the pitstop on the way home with 50 people a bus - 200 people to get through those stalls in 20 minutes. It wasn't pretty. The other issue is there are a LOT of steps at the Castle. If you have any physical limitations, are older, or overweight, this can be a daunting climb. I'm in fairly good shape but I had a hard time breathing (asthma) towards the top.
WOW! What can I say?? The trip there and back was a little long but being there was SO awesome. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable. I learned so much. I would definintely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get out of the city and meet history head on!
I enjoyed this tour very much, even though the weather was not the best on the day. The drive through Normandy was interesting, the light lunch on the mainland was very nice. Mont St Michel was wonderful. It is worth it to climb right to the top for the views, if you are fit to do so.
