Full description
Depart Paris and travel by luxury air-conditioned coach 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 that dates 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. Explore the fantastic architecture and remarkable monuments of the walled city at your own pace. Climb along the ramparts to make your way up to the abbey at the top of the town. Built in the 11th century by William of Volpiano, the monument has played a vital role in the history of the commune and feudal society it represents. Depart Mont-Saint-Michel in the late afternoon and drive back to Paris to get dropped off at the starting point.

The distance is about 4 hours, and the rest stop is about 30 minutes, but there are really many people in the toilet. The time of the leader of the car was very clear. It is recommended to buy a mobile tour guide, but there is a large distance from the alighting point to the monastery. It is recommended to take a shuttle bus to visit it in the past. Otherwise, you need to wait in line for the restaurants inside. Reduced the time for real visits.

Go to the office and get a ticket. When you receive it, you will be told what bus you will stay on. The bus is unreserved, so if you get on the bus early you can sit in your favorite seat. Surprisingly, it seemed that there were more Japanese participants. It takes about 5 hours each way, but after running for about 2 hours, take a break in 30 minutes. For security reasons, all buses have to go out for security, so even those who are useless need to get out of the bus and spend time in the rest area. You will receive an admission ticket before you reach your destination, and you will be told where to enter and when to return. Even if you are sleeping, you will be guided individually later. In this tour, my stay in Monsan was 4 hours. But when I actually went around, I felt there were many 4 hours. I think it's best to spend 4 hours if you use an audio guide to look around and eat on the island. But actually, a couple of people came back one hour ago to find a bus. It may feel like

Highly recommend the tour and the staff! Although long - in my case it was a total of 10 hours of commute (5hrs per stretch) with 20 minute rest stops - the ride is very worthwhile! The place is beautiful, preserved, a charm! The guide Bart was very attentive, helpful and friendly speaking English, French and Spanish and the location of the agency is next to the Joan of Arc statue (on Rivoli on the side of the Louvre). Attention to change the ticket before boarding, so I recommend arriving 20 minutes before the boarding time.
