Set out on a day trip from Paris to explore one of France's most iconic sights: the UNESCO-listed island commune of Mont Saint Michel. Embark on a guided tour of the medieval city and its impressive, Gothic-style abbey. Your entrance ticket includes a recorded audio tour of the Benedictine monastery, Explore its large rooms, cloisters and the Romanesque foundations on which it was built. Afterward, stroll the old city's cobbled streets, taking in exquisite views of the surrounding bay as you go.
Fabian was an amazingly attentive and friendly tour guide, which made for wonderful conversation on a four-hour something ride in both directions.
Mont Saint Michel is a place that needs to be seen to believed. I went during low tide and low tourist season and had a blast wandering the castle/island's little streets. Although the main street is highly touristy/overpriced kitsch/food, it doesn't change the fact that the physical structure of Mont Saint Michel is beyond fascinating.
This was my favorite trip so far!!!! I loved the history and architecture! My group and tour guide Alex was AMAZING!! I will never forget this group of people! Make sure you wear good walking shoes and leave time at the end to eat.
The tour was most amazing the driver/guide did not use a microphone so I could not hear a thing he said in the back of the mini-bus. He rambled more than had a plan to share information. He did, however, meet all expectations of on-time driving and stopping for rest breaks and providing us tickets for self-guided tour. This self-guided tour through the Abbey and Village was fascinating and the added quick audio by rooms added to my understanding. I would add that the guide could improve my experience by not only talking so all 8 people can hear while on the mini-van but give more specific information regarding how to navigate the village within 1 hour to see and have lunch.
If you are on the fence, yes do go to Mont Saint Michel. It is a long ride from Paris, but it is amazingly beautiful. Audrey was a good guide who provided background and also answered questions. She moved quickly, but then she had to in order to get us through the whole tour on time. This is a place I could go back to many times.
Great information, comfortable bus and highly knowledgeable tour guide.
Mt St. Michel is a must! one of the dos beautiful and interesting places we have visited.
A long day but totally worth it. Justine our guide was brilliant.
Fantastic tour guide, comfortable transportation, and beautiful place!!!
it was a great tour. It is a long day and takes 4.5 ot 5 hours to get there and about 3 hours on the island, but it is worth it to see the incredible Mt St Michel. There is nothing like it that I know of anywhere. It is truly unique. That being said, if you have more time, I would definitely spend a night on the island which I have done 2 times before and it is nice after the crowds leave. This time we only had one day and my son had never been and wanted to see it, so this tour worked well for us. It was a pretty crowded day in August so we took the first stairway to the ramparts and it was much nicer with less people there. Our guide Audrey was great and did a fabulous job explaining the site and gave a great tour of the Abbey.
Very good day trip from Paris.
This tour was amazing!
