Great site to visit but group too big
, Nov 2021
Wonderful UNESCO site to visit. But not recommended for those who want smaller group. No social distancing at all, very packed bus. Felt really uncomfortable as some passengers don't wear their masks and guides don't enforce it.
Best excursion of the 3 we took out of Paris
, Nov 2021
Fascinating! Tour guide was very informative. Normally, we would not have been able to keep our headsets on the whole time, but for some reason, security did not stop our guide, so we got a detailed audio tour. Down side was we did not realize we had more time to explore on our own & I REALLY regret that I did not do so. (we allowed too much time to get back to the tour bus - we walked back (took about an hour), rather than waiting on the shuttles (which were packed in like sardines - yes, even during a pandemic) & then sat there for another hour waiting for everyone else to return - with nothing to do). Now we need to go back just so I can get that 1 hour back to explore MSM village and also the village on the mainland. Fortunately, we saw 2 hotels on MSM itself & more in the village on the mainland. Lunch was above average. Be ready to climb 300+ steps. Down side of this trip is that it is a LONG bus ride from Paris with only two bathroom stops. Traffic getting back into Paris will blow any dinner reservations you may have made. Allow 12 - 14 hours for this excursion. Note, everyone arrived back to the bus on time, but the guide explained that he has had to leave w/o people if they are not back on time.

Tour guide was very experienced and we enjoyed every moment of the tour, from the time we stepped out of the tour bus
Very long drive but more than worth it!

The drive took a long time but Saint-Michel is a once in a lifetime sight that must be seen at least once in your life.

St Michel
, Feb 2020
Strongly recommend this trip for people who have limited time in France but really want to visit St Michel.
Amazing place to visit
, Jan 2020
Well organised day trip to MSM. It takes about 4 hrs to reach there and the bus trip was broken by a rest stop midway which was nice. There were 4 hours at MSM itself. It is an amazing place well worth going. We opted for the guided tour which included lunch (with a view of MSM). We requested to skip the lunch and rejoined the tour in the abbey followed by some free time to buy souvenirs. Long day but comfortable coach and good guide made it very nice

Mont Saint Michel Great Tour
, Jan 2020
Our tour guide, Elizabeth, was excellent. She was full of historical information. She made the tour come alive. Would love to take make tours with her. The meal was just so-so. Next time would not get the lunch and would have more time for the tour.
