This tour was wonderful, we been to Paris once and did not have time go, highly recommended to everyone if you have enough time to go, is the whole day trip worth every penny.

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!

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.

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.

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!

The tour was well-planned, organized, and executed. Mont Saint-Michel is in the countryside, and bus or rail connections there from Paris weren't obvious. For me, it was worthwhile taking the tour alone for the 4-hour direct bus ride each way. That simplified life and was a pleasant excursion.

Mont Saint Michel is well worth the four plus hour bus ride. Skip the included lunch where the bus parks and instead eat at one of the restaurants on the Mount itself. The tour is well delivered by the guide points out unique views, there is soo much to see. Spend some time wandering on your own.

Awesome place, very worth visiting. Group lunch was delicious - unusual for a group lunch. Bus was very comfortable, time alloted was perfect. My only suggestion is the the guide don't walk so fast, he walked extremely fast wihout any need and it was easy to lose track of him.

Our guide was very informative and the double decker bus was comfortable. Our driver was very experienced driving a big bus like that inside and outside the city.
Unfortunately, the weather wasn't cooperating. Other than that, the tour was fantastic.

Highly recommended! Even though my transportation from my hotel to the main office never showed up (I paid extra). The 5 hour drive is well worth it. I enjoyed the included luncheon very much. Our guide was very informative.

I worried that this tour would have too lengthy of a bus ride, but it was not. The ride through Normandy was in a nice bus with one 30 minute stop. The tour guide was knowledgable, helpful, and went out of her way to make us comfortable and to answer questions. The tour of the Mont was perfect. The included lunch was mediocre, because the restaurant is not quaint and the food very average. I saw some participants who came on this tour and did not pay for the guide. I felt that they really missed out on her commentary. I was glad that I had bought the guided version. All in all, this is not too long or too hard of a day trip from Paris. Very worth it!
