The walled village and the abbey are beautiful, but those coming from Paris need to know that they will travel for 5 hours to reach the place, stay there for four hours and travel another 5 hours. The visit to the abbey takes about three hours and is all on foot with a lot of uphill and many steps, which requires a lot of effort. I loved everything.

Since it is a day trip, the time to stay at Mont Saint Michel will be shorter (about 4 hours and a half), but I think it is perfect for people who can go on a day trip and don't have time. There was a break between the bus trips, so I felt refreshed. It was nice that the guide was very kind and easy to talk to. I rented a Japanese audio system instead of an English guide, but I could easily listen to explanations in Japanese on the device. We went to a restaurant and ate a lot, so we ran out of time, so the resting point where the bus stops has plenty of food, and there are sandwich shops in Monsan, so if you want to take your time sightseeing inside. To save time, we recommend a simple one that you can hold in your hand and eat.

To get to mont saint michelle by yourself would be very hard for travelers from overseas like us and so this tour was perfect for us. We made reservations just 2 days before the trip. The guide was really a nice person. There were no troubles with all the other people who went with us. Even when one person was late for the start on the way back, nobody said anything, the guide talked very softly and kept the atmosphere relaxing. The bus was airconditioned and had usb plugs for your smartphones.
