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!

Very well organised

This was a very well organised tour, however, the time spent at Mont Saint Michel was not long enough. By the time doing a tour of the Abby with and listening to the audio guide there was very little time to do anything else taking in lunch also with the many restaurants there and many of them very busy by the time you did get service there was very little time left to buy souvenirs. I fully understand that is a long way to travel from Paris to Mont Saint Michel the journey taking five hours each way it is a full day. I don't know if/or anything can be done to improve a long stay at Mont Saint Michel.
