Guided Excursion to Mont Saint Michel from Paris

(29 reviews)

Set off for a full day excursion to one of France's most popular and iconic sights, the magnificent island of Mont Saint Michel and its bay, listed by UNESCO as World Heritage sites. Your guide will tell you everything you need to know about the stunning medieval abbey at the top of the rocky island, a genuine historical masterpiece. Then take your time to soak up the magic of the island and the beauty of its bay, which changes with the rise and fall of the tides.

Leave our agency in Central Paris at 7:15 a.m. for an unforgettable day at Mont Saint Michel. Relax on the luxury air-conditioned coach journey and take in the beautiful green landscapes of Normandy as you reach Mont Saint Michel at around 12 noon. 

Lunch is included at a modern, elegant restaurant with uninterrupted views of Mont Saint Michel.

After lunch, start with a guided walking tour of Mont Saint Michel, a picturesque fortified rocky outcrop that dates back to the Middle Ages and is surrounded by a large bay with one of Europe's most extreme tides. Walk right up to the top of the island to see the fascinating and unique Benedictine abbey. Dating back to the 8th Century, it is a wonder of Gothic architecture on three floors, dedicated to the Archangel Michael. Visit the cloister, the refectory, and the abbey's charming garden, overlooking the sea below.

Then make the most of your free time with a walk along the ramparts and walls. The landscape will take your breath away: the sand stretches as far as the eye can see at low tide or the island is surrounded by the sea at high tide. You can also visit the village's museum, sample some local crêpes, indulge in some shopping, or just watch the world go by in this busy little village until 4.30 p.m. Return to Paris scheduled for around 9:15 p.m.

Florent, Tour guide since 2015

Mont Saint Michel is a bit of a ways from Paris. But every time you see the shape of the monastery jutting out from the sea you will think, "This is an incredible edifice!" The daily life of the monks is also hard to imagine. We are all pilgrims, searching for an unforgettable memory. Every time you see the Mont Saint Michel monastery rising from the sea from afar, its unique form allows you to momentarily pass through time, and seek out the traces of history, making you a pilgrim.

Tour was good but the weather was bad
We LOVED this trip. As with our trip to Versailles, we did not book a true group tour. ParisCityVision provided transportation and a free lunch at a restaurant outside Mt. Ste. Michel. I felt like this is a waste of time, and the food was so/so. Also, they didn't have true vegetarian options and when a few people asked for them, the staff were extremely rude and indignant. We ate the "salad", and my husband started to eat the fish option. He told me it was mediocre and would prefer to get moving to have more time at the Abbey. I think they should have lunch as an up-charge option instead of rolling it into the ticket price. Despite the disappointing lunch, Mt. Ste. Michel was beautiful and the trip there and back was smooth sailing. We highly recommend a trip to Mt. Ste. Michel.
The journey to Mont Saint Michel is marvelous because of the comfortable travel and well-experienced tour guides which introduced lots of interesting history of it.
Everything was on time and kept moving at a good pace: not too fast and not too slow. The quality of the tour guide was excellent. The coach bus was clean, comfortable and modern. Would definitely recommend.
The rest stop going to Mont Saint-Michel ..... It has a cafe of sorts ..... The rest stop on the return to Paris was awful .....
a fantastic tour!
Very good organization
Tour went as expected. Great service.
Worth the money - saw a lot for a 1 day trip. Lunch was excelent !!!!Dominique was a very good and caring guide - made sure everyone could hear and also understood where to be a a certain time.
Organized and timely. I just wish they give you more free time to explore and walk around the village below the abbey.
The bus ride was very long for a 4 hour visit (but this can't really be helped). The restaurant was great. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, but she struggled a bit to keep the group together.
Excellent service. Well planned. On time. Very satisfied.
Guide did not speak loud enough in the bus or on the tour
Due to my error, I missed the bus to mont Saint Michel on Saturday. But instead of offering refund (I missed the bus by 10 minutes), I was charge 35 € more for rescheduling fee. I had to take the next day's tour. Luckily, I could fit that into my schedule. Next, morning started well. Instead of thinking it was a fully English tour, it turned out to be 3 other languages. The other translators dominated the tour bus. The English tour guide spoke in only a few broken sentences. Also, will you purchase foam rubber wind shield for the microphone? We kept hearing her breath heavily which can be corrected by microphone wind guard. Plus, she had the microphone to close to her mouth. The audio was distorted. With her broken English, we could hardly understand her. I mentioned this to her. She made the correction only temporarily. You need to update your equipment and train the tour guides. Last, the lunch was a joke. The other tourist at our table ordered non-salmon option. The waitress put plate down in front of them rudely and would not substitute the plate. Out tour guide was no where to be found to to correct the situation.Finally, we barely had enough time to have free time after tour. We needed at least 1 hour more. I'm disappointed in the tour because the technical issues with microphone, tour guide's broken English accent and lunch fiasco. This tour was not worth 170 € plus 35 € rescheduling fee.
suggest to depart earlier in paris since it takes close to 5 hrs to reach mont saint michel, otherwise too rush for the lunch and visit. i had time to walk up to the abbey but no time for souvenirs shopping.
Definitely worth the 10 hours on a coach. The guide was very good but her strong French accent sometimes made her English difficult to understand. Would have preferred more time at the Mont itself. Next time I will leave the lunch option out of the booking as the food was very average and it would have been better to have spent the time enjoying the ambiance at the Mont.
The tour was a very nice tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant.
The tour was good and the guide was knowledgeable. But the food at the restaurant could have been a bit better, although I know that we were there for the view. Anyway, it's a good comfortable trip and we feel like we had enough time for Mt. St.-Michel
Happy with my experience. Amazing Mont St Michel and amazing team from Paris Cityvision!
Although the restaurant that we ate at were not very good. The food was good but the service was not so good. One of the tourist in our table does not eat fish, they served us salmon, but there was an alternative menu, chicken. The other table that had chicken got theirs, but this poor lady didn't. The waitress that served us never got her her chicken. I had to flag one of them towards the end of the meal and still didn't say if she is getting it or not. She did get it eventually, but I think someone should have explained it better. The tour guide also said, we were supposed to get omelet, because it was famous from that area, but it must have been a miscommunication because we didn't get it. Other than that, service from the Paris City Vision was good. They communicated well so over all it was a pleasant experience.
Taking trains to Mont St Michel from Paris would have been complicated and expensive.Doing the guided tour gave us info about the place and was a great deal since we were traveling from Paris.
I took the option which included the guided tour and lunch, which was quite a good deal I thought. The tour was very well-orgnaized and informational. The guided tour provided us insights which made us appreciate the place even more, while the three-course lunch - eaten amidst a beautiful view of MSM - was delicious and filling. Despite the long bus ride and early morning start, the tour was a convenient and stress-free way to enjoy the Mont Saint Michel. The bus also had Wifi which worked most of the time.
Total waste of a day. The 5 hour bus ride was too long and the bus was not comfortable at all. Forget the 2 hour delay in the middle when the bus broke down. That was not their fault. But they made no effort to compensate for the delay and then rushed us through the rest of the tour. Once to the site, we were left on our own to get back to the bus stop and with the delay, the crowds were horrendous. So 10 hours of bus rides led to 1 ½ hours at the site. Not worth anywhere near the cost. Go somewhere else.
Very good, and very knowledgeable tour guide. I would recommend Paris city vision to my friends
very beautiful place, tour guide are nice
It was great. We enjoyed it. The tour guide was professional, friendly, accommodating, fluent in several languages. Set menu lunch was fantastic.
Amazing and very complete. Corine was a really professional and kind guide. Wonderful and organized timing. Very advisable
Our guided tour was unique due to the weather. It was quite a challenge but the tour guide did a fantastic job helping the group manage through the weather. The wind was unbelievable and unfortunately someone fell off the boardwalk which interrupted the tour for awhile. However, we are truly glad the tour was not canceled or stopped. It was the only day that we could do the excursion to Mont St. Michel. It was truly worth it. The bus was in perfect condition and very comfortable for the long drive to the coast. Again many thanks to Paris CityVision for conducting the tour and many thanks to our tour guide who was knowledge, friendly and very kind to all. I will definitely recommend and will choose again if in Paris looking for guided excursions.
