After reading some comments on Trip Advisor I was concerned about the shuttle buses and where to find them and if we would be on time for our booking? Nothing could have been easier! Everything was well organised. 4 steps Arrive at the Parking, Park the car, Walk a short distance to the shuttle bus service. Stand in the queue, then board the bus! Everyone was delightful and helpful, especially the gentleman at the entrance to the Abbey. He was so kindly and spoke perfectly in Spanish to my friends. A most interesting and wonderful place. Thank you everyone who gave us such a beautiful experience! The Mass was incredible and although the visit was only for the day, all of us came away with a profound sense of peacefulness.

Monet's garden is beautiful. It was great going in 30 min before they officially open. I definitely recommend going on the morning tour. We had a great time and were able to relax not having to worry about arranging travel from Paris to Giverny on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Learning the history was fun.

We had a wonderful time! Loved Mont Saint Michel very much. We were here back in 1997 and it’s very different now but still one of my favorite places in the world to visit. this is a must see if you come to visit France and venture up to the Normandy area.

Loved learning from Steven! He was beyond knowledgeable and personable as well. He was clear on expectations and fielded questions without fail. Highly recommended!

Our tour guide Sarah was informative and pleasant. The entire experience was beyond my expectations!!
