Unguided Excursion to Mont Saint Michel from Paris

(7 reviews)
Description

Set off for a day trip that allows you to design your own itinerary, between the sea and the sky! Visit one of France's most iconic sights, the stunning UNESCO World Heritage listed island of Mont Saint Michel and its bay. Discover the magnificent medieval abbey at the island's summit, a historical masterpiece. Take advantage of the opportunity to experience the magic of the island and the breath-taking sight of the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, at the mercy of the tides.

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

Visit the base of the island of Mont Saint Michel on foot; a unique fortified rocky outcrop, it dates back to the Middle Ages and is surrounded by a vast bay with one of the biggest tides in Europe. Climb right up to the top of the island to the captivating Benedictine abbey, which dates from the 8th Century. A wonderful example of Gothic architecture on three floors, it is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. Visit the cloister, the imposing refectory, and the abbey's charming garden, looking out to sea.

Make the most of your time at the abbey with a walk along the ramparts and walls; the landscape will take your breath away as you breathe in the sea air. The sand stretches as far as the eye can see at low tide and the island is cut off by the sea at high tide. You may also decide to spend time visiting Mont Saint Michel's museums, indulging in some souvenir shopping, watching the hustle-and-bustle of village life, or sampling local crêpes until 4:30 p.m. Return to Paris scheduled for approximately 9:15 p.m.

Extremely well timed and the bus was very luxurious. My only issue was that there was a very young toddler who cried off/on for the duration of the ride there/back. Perhaps an age limit? Or "adult only" for the simple reason of peace and tranquility. However, that being said, it was only a tedious distraction because it was early in the morning and I hadn't had coffee yet. Perhaps a coffee could be included upon arrival, as opposed to waiting 2 hours for the first stop.

A recent tour to Mont St Michel from Paris, the unguided version. Mont St Michel met my expectations. Stunning environment. It was rainy and overcast but in no way spoilt the day. Good dining options on the tiny island. Walk from the bus one way and take the horse drawn dray (€5.30) back. The tour is excellent value in a very comfortable luxury bus. Worth the long journey, (approx 4hours each way, dependant on traffic). Pity about the Ugly American in the back, his brain numbingly boring conversation could be heard word for word all the way to the front. Take your headphones! (usb connection for each seat). Highly recommend.
4/5
Even if it was unguided tour, one did not feel left aside from the rest of the group.
