Good excursion but long trip to get there.

Absolutely a must see. But most of the excursion will be you sitting for hours. If I’m not mistaken, the drive is more than 4 hours one way and the tour of St Michel is only 3 hours. The guides are good. But speak up if the bus gets warm. Also they don’t announce it but there’s a bathroom in the bus. As all excursion with lunches, lower your expectations but the lunch in this one wasn’t bad.

Excellent experience! Yes, it’s a long bus trip, but the coach was very comfortable. We stopped about halfway , each way , at a gas station for snacks and to stretch our legs. The meal was excellent! I do not understand what others have complained about.( maybe they just need to complain ?) The Mont is stunning! Our guide was very knowledgeable and obviously had a passion for the history of the monastery. There are a lot of stairs, so a certain amount of fitness makes it easier. Truly a fantastic site, met wonderful people and had glorious weather . An overall excellent day! Go, book the tour, spend the money. I am very glad I did !

Our guide, Elizabeth, was well organized, and gave clear instructions for times and meeting points for each stop on the trip. Her historical knowledge of St-Michel, and events in French history during the construction and to the present day, was thorough and well-delivered. The only reason I rated the tour as 4 star, instead of 5, was because the lunch provided was disappointing: all tour participants were served the same meal consisting of a cheesy crepe, a thin 5cm square piece of cured salmon on a small bed of lettuce, and a shortcrust pie crust over a bowl of bland fish broth with two 1-inch pieces of white fish and a few specks of onion and zucchini. The dessert of creme brulee was ok. A choice of menu - in consideration that several people do not eat fish - could have been offered and serving portions should have been more generous. I could not help but notice that many lunches were left uneaten, or picked at, and most people enjoyed only the bread rolls served before the meal.
