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.

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.

The tour was great. Carlos provided a thorough commentary of St Michel
4/5
The tour was very good and Leonor was a great guide.
3/5
The views of rural France were amazing. Huge fields of yellow flowers were everywhere. The village on top on Mont Saint Michel was unbelievably beautiful. Our guide was a little weird though. Unfriendly and too full of himself. He's English was ok in a way but his sentences were always poorly constructed so his comments always sounded quite simplistic and childish in nature.
5/5
Well organized, great guide. Would book again.
3/5
There was no sufficient historical explanation from guide.
4/5
The tour was good, unfortunately the guide's microphone kept cutting out and she finally had to not use the headset microphone.
5/5
Don't let the long day deter you. The drive to Normandy was gorgeous - and the long daylight hours allowed us to enjoy it both ways. Mont St. Michel is a must see - a unique and fascinating place. Our guide, Elizabeth, was very knowledgable and kind.

It was a nice and informative tour. Tour guide is knowledgeable and provided good background of Mont Saint Michel on the bus before the tour starts. She also provided good explanations during the tour. Bus was very comfortable and bus driver was very careful in his driving. Overall very happy with this trip.

Tour was good but the weather was bad
5/5
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.
5/5
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.
5/5
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.

4/5
Organized and timely. I just wish they give you more free time to explore and walk around the village below the abbey.
3/5
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.
4/5
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.
4/5
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.
5/5
The tour was a very nice tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant.
4/5
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
5/5
Happy with my experience. Amazing Mont St Michel and amazing team from Paris Cityvision!
5/5
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.
4/5
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.
5/5
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.

5/5
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.
