Full description
Discover one of the most unique settlements in France on a day trip from Paris to the mountainous city island of Mont St-Michel on the Normandy coast. Transfer from Paris by comfortable minibus or van, and then enjoy some free time on arrival at the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rising from the sea or sand (depending on the tide), the town is known for its soaring spires, imposing ramparts, and steep streets. Crowned by the fortified Abbaye du Mont St-Michel (dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel), Mont St-Michel remains little changed since the Middle Ages. Explore the village at your own pace, and the interior of the abbey (where Benedictine monks still hold early morning mass) by audio guide. Hear stories of the legends of a unusual jewel of France. Normandy is also known for it’s wonderful apple production and you’ll make a special stop to taste some of the famous Cider Pommeau and Calvados.

You have to get up early, the day with a small tour group and with an excellent, very friendly and competent driver and tour guide (Antoine) was worth every minute, every step and every EURO! The Mont St. Michel is overwhelming and if, as was the case on that day, the weather was great, then one can only be amazed! Certainly other seasons also have their attraction to experience the world cultural heritage: unreservedly recommended and again many, many thanks to our guide!

Antoine was excellent! Very friendly and professional. We had a small group, 5 people which was nice. We went on January 3rd, and in the morning it was pretty empty which was wonderful!! It’s truly an astounding sight to see. However around 2- the crowds came and its very narrow, hard to walk, the restaurants filled up. Antoine said this was considered slow! He said in busy season- everyone marches slowlyyyy up the narrow street all bottle necking. If you get anxiety in crowds or small spaces, I would only go in a slow season. I’m so glad we got to experience it though. My favorite part was walking up to it, so surreal. Couldn’t put my camera down. Oh! To get away from the crowds, navigate to the wall ramparts, the walk is relatively empty and peaceful. The crepe place recommended to us by a friend “la sirene”, a hidden gem...not so hidden anymore. It’s upstairs from a souvineer shop with a big line. Overall lovely tour. Antoine was great!!! Thank you thank you !!!!

If you have wanted to see Mont Saint Michel, this is the tour to take!

I was pleasantly surprised the tour was via passenger van rather than a big bus. It's a long drive out to Mont Saint Michel and back (about 3 hours each way) so be prepared for that. Dimitri was so kind and informative. He answered all of our questions all day. Mont Saint Michel was spectacular! Take this tour ❤️
