Audio tour was very informative and easy to use.

I wish I could remember the guy's name who was giving us continuous updates and information on the bus. It was a 5 hour bus drive but this guy was hilarious, we literally couldn't wait for him to speak each time. His cheerful attitude and quirky humor made the 5 hour bus drive an absolute pleasure!

See my comments under the Paris city vision remarks. The location is fabulous
4/5
Good option that allows you to visit Mont St.-Michel and catch the main items. I wished there was perhaps an hour more to spend on-site vs. spending 10 hours travelling (5 hrs. each way, including 30 min rest/bathroom) and only 3.5-4 hours at the Mont itself.
