The trip to Saint-Michel was truly breathtaking. Truly a full day excursion from Paris, but such a rewarding excursion to Normandy. Sweeping views of the surrounding countryside and sea from a variety of outlooks within the abbey, at a fortification with an amazing history. Great guides, and smooth travel. I highly recommend this trip!!!
What a magical place! You will not regret visiting it! Dress comfortably.
This tour was great! If you have a full day free and want to get away from the city to see some beautiful countryside, this is the tour for you. You will take about a 4.5 hour bus ride there, so be prepared for that! We definitely recommend selecting the option that includes lunch. It was nice knowing that it was taken care of, and the lunch spot has an incredible view of Mont St Michel while you're dining. Our tour guide was excellent and really gave us all the wonderful history and use of each room in the abbey - something you definitely don't get in an unguided version. It rains here every day, so bring an umbrella and also be prepared to walk and climb all the way to the top - there's no elevator, but trust me, the climb is worth the view!
It was a long bus ride from Paris but worth the trip. We chose the option of having lunch and a guide. The meal was good and service fast. The guide was very knowledgeable and provided a good commentary.
I would recommend taking this trip, but bring along some snacks. The stop coming back was a road side rest area. The food options were very limited.
Tour guide was very informative. You should warn potential visitors that it is a steep climb requiring stamina. The lunch was not that great but salad was good. It would have been great to have WIFI on the bus as it was a long ride both ways.
The trip was well-organised and although it was a long way by coach the journey was comfortable with an interesting commentary. we enjoyed lunch with a wonderfu view of Mont St Michel and then a very interesting guided tour. The free time in the village was quite short but long enough as we didn't want to do any shopping -except for an ice cream. We would have appreciated more information about where to get the shuttle for the return over the causeway as this was not at all clear. Altogether I would highly recommend this trip.
Incredible experience, we spent 1 month in Europe and i think this tour tops most of the other tours we took. lots of climbing but gives you plenty of time to climb the island, we had the lunch included with our tour, but i think the option without the lunch will give you a lot more time to explore on your own and opportunity to try the food in the little restaurants in the island.
Worth the drive. Magnificent place. Knowledgeable guide, comfortable bus and great experience.
Beautiful ride through the countryside and a enjoyable tour of story book Abbey.
We loved this destination and was great to get out of the city for a day. Lunch included was excellent with great views. Would have like a little more free time after the guided tour however that would have made it an even longer day. It was a long day with a lot of it on a coach but we were OK with that as well - a day off from walking the city.
This was a must do for me! Absolutely beautiful place. Be aware that its a long drive from Paris and there are a lot of stairs, but again...totally worth it.
Long day but worth it if your looking for a change pace from the Paris streets.
Fabulous! I and #39;d been wanting to experience this since learning French in high school. Quite overwhelming.
A great place to visit. I loved every bit of it despite it was windy and cold when i visited this place. The tour guide rep was passionate about this place and provided comprehensive explanation in English and Spanish. I was impressed by how she provided comprehensive guidance in two languages .
To start with it is a long day, a lot of time on the bus but when you get there it is amazing, it was great going with a guide so you get all the information about Mont St Michel, you also get free time to wander on your own. A long day but a good day, you can always sleep on the bus.

This was a fantastic tour. The 4 hour bus ride from Paris is long, but the visit to Mont Saint-Michel was well worth it. The tour guide did a great job telling us about the history of the abbey and leading us through. We got tons of great pictures. I definitely know just how out of shape I am after climbing to the top of this place. My fitness tracker said it was 34 flights of stairs to get to the top.
I have been yearning to go to Mont St. Michel for so long but it is so far away. When I found this trip I was so excited that I didn't have to make the arrangements. This is an awe-inspiring church set atop a point that looms large in the distance. The food was ok but you are really there for the view.
It was a Long trip (as MSM is quite far away), but the trip is amazing and well worth it! Thanks to the Drivers and #39; safe and comfy driving and the charming tour guides Girod!
Mont Saint Michel bas a bucket list location for me, and I included the tour in a trip to Paris. The tour exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history, food and culture of Normandy which she entertained us with on the drive to the Mont. We happened to be there on the Sunday of a three day holiday weekend, and the island was overrun with tourists and navigating the streets was extremely difficult. Our headsets and audio systems were lifesavers, as our guide was able to provide instructions of where to link up with the group if you became separated. She knew the back route for leaving the monastery to avoid some of the crowds, The tour provided a tasty salmon lunch with local cider and cake, and the bus was well equipped with outlets to charge phones and computers for the trip there and back. It was a long day from Paris, but well worth it I am so happy I booked this trip.
We really enjoyed our time here!! Worth the trip. Due to traffic delays, we skipped the lunch to have more time at Mont Saint Michel. Instead of four hours to each way, our time was 5 1/2 hours each way to the monument. Upon arrival in the morning at the station, it was a little disorganized.
The tour was well timed, well planned, and well guided. We had just the right amount of time at the site, We had two perfectly timed comfort stops and a delicious lunch. I high recommend this trip
