Great way to see Mont St. Michel. The bus was nice and the scenery on the way is very pretty. We had enough time to see the sights. It is a lot of riding time, but we took books and Mont St. Michel was worth it.

The bus ride was comfortable and lunch was surprisingly decent. It isn't 5-star but we got to try a traditional omelette with a sort of cheese foam which was interesting. The guide was very informative and we were given an audio headset each so we could hear him even if we couldn't see him!

Mont Saint Michel is stunning. We had a rainy overcast day and were still able to enjoy our tour and explore. A walk along the ramparts is a must. The coach was very comfortable with a couple of stops on the way to break up the travel. I'm not a big seafood fan so the salmon steak at lunch was a bit wasted on me but other people on our table really enjoyed it. Our tour guide was very informative and shared a lot of very interesting stories.

This tour was really great, our tour guide was so insightful and bubbly, the bus was comfortable and prompt, we also had a lunch, tried a lot of French cuisine such as Mrs Poulet Omelette. On the whole a great day trip, got to meat a bunch of lovely people, lots of free time after the tour to walk around Mt St Michael plus we got to see a saw a lot of the French countryside. A must do trip if your in France.

The entire day trip to Mont Saint Michel was a little too touristy for me. I'm glad I went, otherwise I would have been wishing I did. I don't know if even going on your own vs a tour group would make a difference. The restaurant we had lunch at was just ok. The rest stops along the way were very crowded because apparently there weren't many places to stop along the way, so there were multiple tour buses stopped there. Walking through the actual site was just as crowded as everything else that day as well. It was hard to not get separated from the group, and some time was just spent trying to get through hallways it was so crowded. I suppose it's something nice to see once, but that was enough for me.
