Depart Paris and travel through the French countryside by an air-conditioned bus to the amazing fortified city of Mont Saint-Michel off the Normandy coast. Sit back and relax and get stunning views of the countryside along the way. Stop for a break at a nearby village dating back to the days of the Normans, and stroll the winding streets and narrow pathways to find the best views of the bay. Continue to the mouth of the Couesnon River, where Mont-Saint-Michel was built on an islet just a few hundred meters from the mainland.

Spend the afternoon exploring the remarkable monuments of the walled city, classified as a world heritage site by UNESCO since 1979. Take time to discover the rocky islet at your own pace. Climb along the ramparts to make your way up to the abbey at the top of the town.

Visit the Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel with an included entrance ticket. this Benedictine building has played a vital role in the history of the commune and the feudal society it represents. Marvel at this magnificent example of Gothic architecture from the early 13th century.

The Tour was professionally organised and managed all the way through. The bus ride is long but enjoyable and the Mont Saint Michel is a must see! Our guide Manuela was incredible. I can’t recommend the guided tour with her highly enough. Manuela made the experience even more special with all the stories and knowledge she shared. The weather at the monastery can change in an instant so be prepared for wind and short bursts of wet weather. Overall, an exceptional experience and one of the highlights of my travels.

Mont Saint Michel was magical, but we were a little disappointed with the tour overall. Not a huge deal, but we were on a bus with a group with a guided tour once we got to our destination. We opted to explore on our own instead of take the guided tour, that's what we wanted. Yet, on the bus, the tour guide for the other group had them put on their headsets on the bus so they could hear him talk about the area and history of Mont Saint Michel. I just felt that it would have been just as easy to talk to all of us during the bus ride so we could all hear a little bit instead of having the group put on headphones while on the bus. Inconvenient for them, and it could have been just as easy for all of us to hear.

Mont St Michele is really spectacular! The history, the view, the monastery! 10/10 recommend to visit and this tour was an easy one day trip to do so from Paris. It is a long day - more time in bud than at destination. But worth it ! Our guide was so informative and really animating the tour. Thanks Florence !
