Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Mont St.-Michel Tour from Paris with Lunch

See the cloister garden at the Mont St Michel abbey

Your day trip to Mont St.-Michel starts as you depart central Paris by coach in the early morning for the approximate 3.5-hour drive west to the Normandy coast.

When you arrive in the medieval village, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its unique location on a tiny rocky island, you’ll begin your visit with an included lunch. (See the Itinerary for a sample menu.) Then follow your guide on a walking tour, climbing up narrow lanes to the top of the village. Hear about Mont St.-Michel’s history as a pilgrimage destination in the Middle Ages and its renowned abbey, which, according to legend, was founded in the eighth century when the bishop of Avranches received a vision of Michael the Archangel.

Arriving at the abbey with your guide, admire its cloister, refectory, and ramparts, and look out at the sea below, hearing about the extreme tides that surround the island. After your tour ends, you're free to wander up and down the streets of the village on your own to explore more. Perhaps shop for gifts and souvenirs, visit a museum, or just admire views of the Atlantic.

Your total time at Mont St.-Michel is approximately four hours. You’ll then return by coach to Paris, where your day trip ends.

Great Tour. The double-decker Bus was very comfortable. The trip is long but you are able to sleep on the way. The Mont St.-Michel is one of the most awe-inspiring places I've ever seen. It was more than well-worth it! The resturant was nice and the food was very delicious. They served us alot. The guide was estremly knowledgeable and very fun. It's worth ever penny. This is by far the tour I will remember during. Book it already!!!!

Fabulous place and wonderful experience. Guide was very excellent. The lunch was lacking and should have had more choices.

Fantastic - worth the trip by itself. I would not combine it with Normandy, etc unless you are short of time since each takes a day.

Well worth the drive. Guide was great. IF you get the chance to go to Mont St Michel you must do it! Nothing else like it.

Be aware that you might encounter rain, showers or fog. But don’t let this stop you. It is a long drive, but worth it in rain or shine. An architectural marvel, and great guides and driver.

Tour is worth the travel times. Guide was great and we made friends along the way. There are 350 steps to climb the top so be aware as it doesn't mention it in the tour schedule. The shops in the village are awesome and we picked up tons of souvenirs
