Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Abbaye du Mont-Saint-Michel, Bp 22 Au sommet du village, 50170 Mont-Saint-Michel France

This tour transports you from Paris to the magical abbey-crowned island of Mont Saint-Michel, one of the most iconic sights in all of France, aboard a private bus. Offering you a hassle-free way to explore the island with plenty of free time ensuring you do not have to adhere to a rigid sightseeing schedule.

As you approach the Mount Saint-Michel, your guide will provide insight on the UNESCO-listed island. Listen to interesting anecdotes about the history of the abbey, whilst admiring the views of the island and the surrounding region of Normandy Mont Saint-Michel began humbly enough in the eighth century, when – citing orders from Archangel Michael himself – a bishop built a church on this small and secluded rock island, which later expanded during the medieval era, attracting an increasingly large number of pilgrims.


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Mont-Saint-Michel, Mont-Saint-Michel, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy

You can then choose from some of the many options for lunch, ranging from dining rooms serving rustic meat-focused fare to sophisticated restaurants with bay-view terraces specializing in seafood. Alternatively, you can stop by one of Mont Saint-Michel’s crêperies and feast on galettes (buckwheat pancakes) paired with Normandy cider, for a more casual and characteristically Breton feed.

In the late afternoon, re-board the bus for the return journey to Paris, which will see passengers back in the City of Lights well in advance of bedtime.

Duration: 2 hours

This was a fantastic tour which I highly recommend. The time spent at Mont Saint Michel was memorable. I loved the time given after the tour to explore the town on our own.

A very long day with the bus ride from Paris but ABSOLUTELY worth it! Will remember this day trip forever. You should certainly book it!

Sid and Babe were amazing tour guides! Very knowledgeable, walking us through the history of France and Mont Saint Michel. They gave us very clear and detailed instructions for our rest stops, when we arrived at Mont Saint Michel and also for returning back to our bus at the end of our tour. Sid and Babe were very friendly. Special shoutout to Sid for entertaining us with jokes and humor and providing us with restaurant recommendations on our way home. Mont Saint Michel was absolutely breathtaking - pictures and videos do not do this beautiful monastery any justice. Recommend visiting at least once in your life.
