5/5 (29 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.

The audio guide was easy to use, and explained all about the region as well as the actual island and abbey. I liked being on the audio-guided version, because we had freedom to roam around the island and abbey at our own pace, and could eat where and when we wanted. The location itself was pretty cool, but I wouldn't go again (sort of a "been there, done that" feeling). If you only have a few days to spend on Paris, this excursion might not be worth a whole day. The bus was really quiet (like, silent!) on the way there, which was great because I think everybody slept. The countryside was kind of nice to see, but not really what I was hoping for. I didn't feel like I saw the French countryside as much as the French freeway. Four hours on the island was plenty of time to see the abbey, walk around town, eat, and have ample time to shop. The wind was really intense, especially walking towards the abbey, so dress for that. Also, if you can't handle stairs this tour is not for you! There was a museum on the island that wasn't included in our admission ticket, but that didn't bother us. The bus stopped both ways at a large gas station/convenience store, and the line for the bathroom was really long for the ladies, but I guess we all made it in time. On the island, I think everyone took credit cards, but some with a little higher minimum than Paris, like 15 Euros, so maybe bring some cash for snacks and small purchases. Also we found one tourist shop that spoke no English at all, which was surprising as surely they're used to huge numbers of tourists. Anyway, as I said, the excursion to Mont Saint Michel was enjoyable but I probably wouldn't go there again.
Loved it and felt it was very informative and I would recommend it
It was great to be able to have the audioguide but still have my freedom to wander and explore everything for myself.
Great bus. comfy, Wifi available and usb charging port. Stop either way for toilet stop and food. Self guided tour - English translation audio guide was interesting. A lot of time to walk around and take photos.
Nice to explore the town on my own
Excellent tour. We got the unguided tour so we had plenty of free time to explore mont st. Michel. Four hours is plenty enough time.
Excellente!The coach was very comfortable. The journey was smooth and of course Mont St Michel was just amazing. A tip for adventurous millennials, remember to bring an extra pair of shoes to walk on the wet sands. Trust me that’s the only way you can get insta worthy pics.
