wonderful trip
, Apr 2020
one of my favorite tours. Such and amazing place to go see and visit. If you are in France I highly reccomend this tour.
St Michel
, Feb 2020
Strongly recommend this trip for people who have limited time in France but really want to visit St Michel.
Amazing place to visit
, Jan 2020
Well organised day trip to MSM. It takes about 4 hrs to reach there and the bus trip was broken by a rest stop midway which was nice. There were 4 hours at MSM itself. It is an amazing place well worth going. We opted for the guided tour which included lunch (with a view of MSM). We requested to skip the lunch and rejoined the tour in the abbey followed by some free time to buy souvenirs. Long day but comfortable coach and good guide made it very nice
Mont Saint Michel Great Tour
, Jan 2020
Our tour guide, Elizabeth, was excellent. She was full of historical information. She made the tour come alive. Would love to take make tours with her. The meal was just so-so. Next time would not get the lunch and would have more time for the tour.
Great! Excellent timing just a long ride to get there

Excellent service! The bus ride was long but it is the nature of the location . Interpreter was very nice! Taxi and lunch on time. Excellent coordination

well organised, excellent bus and driver i did the self-guided tour, walked to the island even though it was very windy
Expected a little more guidance

This time of year it seemed Mont Saint Michel was under construction on the ground floor. We had to go up clear up to the Abbey to use the restrooms. Our guide didn't tell us to take advantage of the area where the art cows were before going up. Once the bus left you, you were on your own. The trip up and around was everything we expected. It is worth the day trip. 350 stairs up. Take your time but you can make it. Lots of places to stop along the way. No escalators or elevators of course. Crepes places to eat.
Mt. St. Michel
, Nov 2019
Excellent location. It was short but worth it. I just wished we had more time to tour around or maybe had stayed in the area overnight.
Very LOOONG bus ride, stuffed in like a sardine
, Nov 2019
Be prepared for a 5 hour bus ride both ways on a very impersonal double-decker bus with multiple languages. Mont St Michel-- be ready for about 3000 stairs--not an exaggeration. It is glorious and try to find time to do the tour-- they do not give you time to see or do much. We skipped the lunch to give ourselves more time to see the cathedral. I recommend doing that and buying lunch on the island. I recommend going to Mont St Michel--but not with this tour company. It was a miserable tour guide and ride.
Left in Paris
, Nov 2019
Car showed at our hotel well before the listed time on the confirmation. We asked for it to wait as we needed to finish preparing for the day. The driver left. We attempted to call the emergency number multiple times and received nothing but a busy signal or unanswered calls. Called Viator who had the same issue. We ended up missing the tour and Viator could not change the date of the tour or issue any refund because the operator insisted that we "failed to show." The Taxi was supposed to pick us up at 0630 but had left our hotel by 0615. We clearly were left. Because of the "failed to show," Viator refused to refund us the trip or provide any discount or rebooking. We lost our booking fee. I strongly do not recommend using Paris CityVision due to their deceptive practices. I would not recommend Viator as they failed to advocate on our behalf.
