Some of the restaurants in town tend to close mid-afternoon, so consider eating lunch on the earlier side before exploring the village.
I did the independent tour and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I had a great lunch in the village and had plenty of time to climb and then explore the Abbey. It is truly a beautiful place. Be forewarned, the bus ride is very long and may be too much for smaller children. The bus is quite comfortable, but there is no getting around the length of time it takes to get there and get back. I took the metro to the meeting place, arrived at 6:45am and at the end of the day took the metro back to my hotel and arrived a bit after 10pm. I would highly recommend this trip.
It was perfect, I was traveling solo. Viator it's a excellent company to plan your one day vacation? It was easy, I didn't have to worry about anything. I just enjoy it. I wouldn't change anything. It was very pleasant.
Love the journey to the abbey and it's magnificent view!
We opted for the Independent tour after reading other reviews and were happy with our choice.
Once the bus had parked we took the first shuttle to Mont St Michel. Most of the shops on the laneway were closed, but we were heading for the Abbey so did not mind. The Abbey is spectacular! We were very glad to see it ahead of the bustle of the rest of the crowd. There were no lines to wait in when we entered but as we exited, there definitely were. We had a late lunch at Croix Blanche after wandering the outer walls then slowly made our way back to the shuttle pick up.
We did not feel we had missed out not having a headphone talk while on the bus, or having to wait for the rest of the group having a set lunch. We packed a quick breakfast for on the bus and kept snacks for the journey back.
The pickup/drop off point was extremely convenient and easily to navigate to. Staff are very clear on expectations when to be back at the bus on all pit stops. The bus was clean and seats were comfortable - sitting on the ground level at the table gave us extra space.
An easier way to see a spectacular location. The perfect day trip. Highly recommended!
a must visit when in France,it is not recommended to go there on your own, best to book on viator when going to Mt st michel .
Visiting Mont St Michel was absolutely magical! The independent tour worked out well for us, since it allowed us to go at our own pace and we still had plenty of time to see everything we wanted on the island. There were plenty of options to eat lunch on the island so if you do the independent tour, I would recommend heading to the island to eat. Overall, it was a long, but exciting day!
absolutely incredible. a must see. to think monks built this by hand with tidal forces .

One of the most beautiful places I was able to visit on my trip to Europe. It is a lot of walking, many stairs, and uneven ground. Wear comfortable shoes and if you are traveling in the winter it is very windy. Make sure you know where the bus is going to be for departure time, because the bus that takes you to and from the Abby changes stops in the afternoon without you knowing and it can cause you to miss the bus.
Awesome place, very comfortable bus Paris City Vision, very knowledgeable guide, but could have been a tad longer at the Mont as travel time alone to and from Paris was aprox 8 hours, so when you factor in a quick lunch lunch, you have about five hours to explore, which seems like a lot of time on paper, but when you get there you wish you had more time.
Could not have been better! the Bus was super. the in-between stops were appropriate the host was very knowledgeable and accommodating
