FEATURED REVIEW(S)

4.4/5 stars – based on 1671 reviews


Easy scheduling; well organized throughout the day; easy to find and quick check-in; attentive guide; prompt departures; interesting information on the audioguide; comfortable motor coach and ride; low season meant few visitors and lots of space to wander and see the site without crowds Things to know: audioguide required internet connection; no WiFi on motor coach and charging outlet on board was not working either; also could not recline seats; one stop during drive for bathroom/snacks (each way) It was a good day trip after spending a very busy week in Paris—a nice change of pace.

Though the trip is a long 4 and half hours bus ride one way.. the view of Mont St Michel is well worth it. Slight drawback was the entrance to the abbey though it is of no fault to the tour operator.. as in the day we visited, the entrance to the abbey was free due to some certain social movement and there was a huge crowd waiting at the entrance which caused a long queue all the way to the town Main Street.

Die Tour war gut organisiert und unser Guide sehr freundlich. Ich empfehle den Mont-Saint-Michel von etwas Entfernung zu bewundern, erst hier kommt er richtig zur Geltung. Was uns gar nicht gefallen hat war die Abtei selbst. Wir sind trotz Priority Tickets super lange in der Schlange gestanden, Tickets wurden nie kontrolliert und es war wahnsinnig voll. Dafür kann natürlich das Team der Tour nichts. Das Reingehen hat sich nicht gelohnt. Lieber stöbert man etwas durch die Läden oder geht etwas außerhalb spazieren. Die Tour war perfekt für einen Tagestrip.

Overall experience visiting Le Mont Saint Michel was amazing though it I was tired and rained. My tour guide gave a brief history on the monument which I was something important to learn. Lots of tourists came with me from Paris and back. I’d say Le Mont Saint Michel is a must if staying in Paris.
