It was a great tour and we really enjoyed it. We chose Audio guided tour which allowed us to wonder around at our own pace. Mont St Michel is like a harry porter town in real time! It was over 30 degrees on the day we went but wish we could stay a bit longer. An extra hour or two will allow you to wonder around with more enjoyment!

Get ready for a long drive.. its 4-5 hours with a 30 min stop The bus is 1st class and the guide is super nice & informative. The stop was right on time, to use the wc & coffie/food Tip-dont take the bus. Walk to the city. Its 30-40 min. Its worth it

If you are looking to just go to Mont St Michel to spend a few hours, this is a great. But there really was only enough time to do a run of the Abbey, run into a couple stores for souveirs and walk around the sandbar a bit. We were hoping sit for lunch. Knowing that now, I would've stayed a night there instead. It's a VERY long drive, we had a high traffic day (5.5 hours there and 4.5 hours back - though that includes assholes who were late even though we were to explicitly what time the bus left. One annoying thing is that the seats recline REALLY far back. The inconsiderate couple in front of my mother and daughter reclined theirs back both there and back and they were in their lap. My mom complained to one of the people in charge but he didn't say anything. He could have made an announcement that even though the seats recline, it isn't nice for the people behind you. And bring headphones, you never know what the person behind you might be eating, listening to, etc.
