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.
My 15 y/o dtr and I loved it . Mont st Michel is really amazing and w/ the tour it and #39;s so easy. The pick up ( at the French tourisim office ) is literally right when you come out of the louvre -rivoli metro stop. Our guide, Serge, was wonderful . Rec bring earphones for audio guide ( so u r hands free)

This tour is absolutely worth the money. We lucked out and had a small group of only 5 people and a very spacious mini-van. Sergi was our tour guide and he was brilliant. He gave us loads of information about the Normandy region and was very practical about how we tackle seeing everything at Mont Saint-Michele. His advice was spot on. We had enough time to see everything as well as take the time to walk back along the bridge and through the small town to the meeting point. Glad I did this trip.
Quite a amazing place to go! If you got several days in Paris, highly recommend to visit!
Excelente tour al Mont Saint-Michel, el guia Arnaud es bastante simpático y hacía ameno el viaje tanto de ida como de regreso a Paris con datos históricos, graciosos e informativos. Lastima que la estadía dentro del MSM es muy poco, debido a que se hace se pierde bastante tiempo en los traslados. A pesar de ese detalle, el tour es totalmente recomendable ya que es una experiencia única.
Great place to visit, plus you're given more than enough time to experience everything it has to offer.
This was a really fun day. Our tour guide, Fabian, was very prompt and friendly. He was happy to answer all our questions and made sure everyone was taken care of both in stopping along the way for breaks and also gave recommendations for things in Paris once we got back. There was ample time to not only see the Abbey but also the little town area. There are quite a few stairs to get up with no elevator which wasn't a problem for anyone on our tour but just an FYI for people who may have trouble climbing up. Audio guide was helpful too. I'd recommend this if you have time for a full day out of the city. o
It was an early start but you had to do it to cover such a long drive. A nice but very windy day but Mt St Michel itself looks quite spectacular.
It was very very good - the small van was fine although a bit more room for the 4 hour ride might have been nice. Also we were unable to hear the driver when he was giving history of Mont St. Michel prior to arriving as we were sitting in the very back. Perhaps some sort of microphone system would be helpful. We passed some beautiful houses, churches and villages along the way that I would have liked to know something about them. Our driver was otherwise just fine. Mt. St. Michel was marvelous and the trip was well worth the money. Thank you!
Mont St. Michel was breathtaking! Beautiful, beautiful place with so much history. How they built this place on a mountain is amazing. Our guide was a young man who had so much energy and was eager to answer all our questions. The bus ride was 3 hrs long but with toilet stops along the way. There is a lot of walking involved and you will have to climb up the hill to reach the abbey. I highly recommend this tour for those who appreciate history.
This tour was very nice. We got there in time and got to explore Mont Saint Michel for 4 hours. We also got to see some of the French countryside.
Very nice experiente altogether.
The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Did I mention the tour will take place in a van - so there will be no
Great way to visit Mont Saint Michel. January was a great time to visit without the crowds.
This was by far the best tour I have ever been on. It was truly the highlight of my multi city tour. The meeting point was easy to find and conveniently located, the driver spoke several languages and even make a couple of stops as we approached the Monestary so we could take some pictures from a distance. We stayed this trip with a group of people who didn't know each other and we didn't end the trip at the drop off point buy with a night drinks and sharing information to stay in contact with each other. It was an awesome day!
Only 4 on tour but tour guide was excellent and tour was certainly memorable.
In spite of a rainy day, this was a wonderful day trip from Paris. The tour guide was wonderful and a great driver. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Well the site is very intresting, the driver/guide is very friendly and gived us lot of information and she was very hepfull, it was very easy to find the agency and they are professional and helpfull, however the trip is a little bit too long
