We were able to stay in Mont Saint Michel for about 4 hours and we were able to fully enjoy it. The galette shop recommended by Guyto was also delicious. Everything went on time and it was a very solid tour. Although it is an English tour, the audio guide of the monastery was able to be borrowed in Japanese, so it was easier to understand.

The bus ride to and from is quite long. Most people on our tour chose to sleep, but if you want to read be sure to bring your own light. The bus is small and does not offer overhead lights for reading, nor does it offer a bathroom like a big tour bus. They may use the big buses during the high tourist seasons, but not in November when its so cold outside. Also, be prepared to walk a lot of stairs. And by a lot I mean hundreds and hundreds. Do not underestimate the amount of walking & climbing you will do on this tour or you will be sorry. It is very much worth the exercise, but be prepared for a serious workout.

We had a small group to begin with(5) and this helped us to start the tour early and also finish with quite a bit of time on our hands. It was a long drive to Mont St Michel but our guide Nathan regaled us with the Normandy history and subsequently the history of Mont St Michel, with a lot of interesting tidbits. We were also really lucky to have a nice sunny day which helped us to explore without any issue. In my opinion, the grandness of the Abbey is mostly on the outside as inside it was quite stark and nothing really notable. The little town was quite interesting and I had a good Norman meal at one of the local restaurants which was delicious! Overall, the trip was really good and well managed. Kudos!
