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.

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.

Very well planned and well paced tour of Mont Saint Michel. The tour was very informative as well.
4/5
The tour of Mont St. Michel was a positive experience. The bus was comfortable, and the guides were pleasant.
4/5
All in all very good and would recommend, but...the bus ride was comfortable but long, the tour of the abbey felt rushed, our guide spoke good English but with a heavy accent which was sometimes hard to understand. Also, the climb to the abbey was quite steep and long. Without rest stops along the way, not for those not in reasonably good shape. Despite these cons, the pros outweighed them. The abbey is truly magnificent, and the tour was managed professionally.
5/5
Our English speaking guide, Ms. Enmanuel did a great job! She is knowledgeable, imformative, courteous. Thanks to bus drivers too, they drove carefully and smoothly. The lunch was just so so.
