Day Trip to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris with Optional Guide and Hotel Transfers

Bext experience ever!

Reviewed by: Emi&Chiri, 2015/10/15

We decided that rather than going on a guided tour we would want to explore on our own. And this is how we found this tour. We had about 4 hours in Saint-Michel for our own, which was enough to have lunch and do sightseeing.
But the best part of the tour was the tour guide on the bus. He was entertaining us with interesting stories during our bus transfer - he was telling stories about history, cheese or even cows! What a wonderful personality. It made this tour a great experience. Thank you very much!

Day Trip to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris with Optional Guide and Hotel Transfers

Wonderful tour!

Reviewed by: sachori, 2015/10/15

Mont Saint-Michel was amazing! I picked this tour because it incuded the longest free time from all the tours we looked at, and it was a great decision!
There was a lot of shops and restaurants on the island. We had lunch at the Lamere Cafe and had delicious moule in wine sauce, the best meal on our trip to France.
4 hours of free time was hardly enough to see everything, so I'm glad we didn't picked a tour with even less free time. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Day Trip to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris with Optional Guide and Hotel Transfers

Reviewed by: SYLVIA, 2015/06/24

Excellent, well run tour. Lots of time on my pwn to see everything I wanted to see.
Having abbey entrance ticket I hand saved
time. For me, the non-guided tour without
lunch provided the best use of my time as
I was travelling solo.

Bus was huge double decker but new and very comfortable.

Rest stop on way out was good for picking up croissant and coffee for breakfast and return stop had lots of choice to pick up a meal for dinner as we arrived back after 9pm in Paris.

Day Trip to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris with Optional Guide and Hotel Transfers

Reviewed by: Edward, 2016/04/05

for history for architecture, for religion, for a tour through Normandy with great commentary, this is a full-day trip. Though it was the Easter weekend, Mont St Michel, itself, was not at all overrun except for the first street at the entrance where all the shops and cafes are. The abbey itself was not crowded.

A hint: the reception at the very top, immediately prior to entering the abbey, does not offer the audio tour. That has to be rented part-way up.

Mont Saint-Michel Abbey and Loire Valley Castles 2-Day Tour from Paris

Reviewed by: Wendy, 2014/10/06

Everything was great, but would make the suggestion on the two-day Mont Saint Michel and Chateaux Country 2 Day Summer Tour, on the second day touring the Chateaus, would've preferred to have not visited the first one, Château d'Angers and spent more time in Amboise and Chenonceau. If you went through Chenonceau with the guide, that left no time to spend in the gardens, was disappointing as it was a beautiful spot

Mont Saint-Michel Abbey and Loire Valley Castles 2-Day Tour from Paris

Reviewed by: Chi Wing, 2015/06/03

This tour explored perhaps the best part of Paris outskirts and actually is my second time joining this tour. If you have few days in Paris, this tour is a must do in your itinerary. One comment is on the Hotel which is a bit basic. I would suggest to over an overnight tour in Mont Saint Michel either on its own or as a variant of this tour.

Well organized day tour - Paris CityVision runs
Tours run like a well-oiled machine. 75passenger double-decker coaches new and very comfortable. Recommend the independent tour which leaves more time to explore the city.Lots of cafés to eat in town.

Mont St Michel is an amazing sight and well
Worth the long day it visit Normandy.

Amazing place

Reviewed by: Amy, 2017/05/06

My husband and I went to Sant Michel during our holidays in Paris. The place is just amazing, the Abbey has more than 800 hundreds years old, but is very well conserved, the beauty of the landscape, the village, everything...
Definately not a place to miss.

Day Trip to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris with Optional Guide and Hotel Transfers

Reviewed by: PAUL, 2014/04/26

This tour was supposed to have a guide narrative along the way, and then be on your own in Mont St. Michel. The bus had two groups, one group that was on your own and a second that had lunch & guided tour in Mont St. Michel. Only the guided tour passengers heard the narrative through headphones. The only thing we heard was how and when to get on the bus headed back to Paris.

Day Trip to Mont Saint-Michel from Paris with Optional Guide and Hotel Transfers

Reviewed by: Dianne, 2013/11/21

Mont Saint Michel was amazing and worth the long day's trip. The commentary provided by the audio tour at the Abbey was great. It was disappointing that, because we didn't want the conducted tour of the Abbey, there was no commentary available to us on the bus. In fact, we considered it quite rude that some passengers were given a commentary and others were excluded.

3-Day Tour of Mont Saint Michel and Loire Valley from Paris with 4-Star Hotels

Reviewed by: William, 2012/09/05

The English speaking tour guide on the Mont Saint Michael was excellent. The English speaking tour guide on the Chateau Country portion was very poor. He talked to the exhibit and not to the listeners. He often stood in front of what he was describing. He was not knowledgeable about distances to walk.

Reviewed by: AHA, 2017/05/09

We opted for self-guided tour so we could get to the abbey before the queue line became long. The tour provided audio guide which provided us with insightful knowledge about Mont Saint Michel. We had enough time to see abbey and enjoy the view. The bus ride was comfortable.

picturesque destination

Reviewed by: Jen Highley, 2017/11/13

the location was fantastic. However, being crammed on a full bus for over four hours each way was almost unbearable! They gave no information along the way and it was very boring. The abbey was wonderful and the eateries very fun.
