Your tour begins with pickup from your Caen hotel at a time of your choosing. Traveling by private vehicle, relax on the around 1.5-hour journey to Mont Saint Michel.
Learn more about the history of the monastery as you approach the coast and spot the fairy-tale spires of the Mont Saint Michel on the horizon. It’s undeniably picturesque, so be sure to snap plenty of photos as you admire the views out to the island.
On arrival, use your fast-track entrance ticket to head inside and enjoy a private guided tour of the UNESCO-listed landmark. Stroll the narrow streets of the monastery complex and climb the Grande Staircase to visit the hilltop Abbey Church. The views from the top are magnificent, so don’t forget to bring your camera.
Before you leave, enjoy lunch (own expense) at Mere Poulard, famous for its delicious omelettes, or at one of the island’s other restaurants, and take time to browse the many souvenir shops of the Grande Rue.
After the return journey to Caen, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or cruise port.
