Full description
Discover one of the most unique settlements in France on a day trip from Paris to the mountainous city island of Mont St-Michel on the Normandy coast. Transfer from Paris by comfortable minibus or van, and then enjoy some free time on arrival at the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rising from the sea or sand (depending on the tide), the town is known for its soaring spires, imposing ramparts, and steep streets. Crowned by the fortified Abbaye du Mont St-Michel (dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel), Mont St-Michel remains little changed since the Middle Ages. Explore the village at your own pace, and the interior of the abbey (where Benedictine monks still hold early morning mass) by audio guide. Hear stories of the legends of a unusual jewel of France. Normandy is also known for it’s wonderful apple production and you’ll make a special stop to taste some of the famous Cider Pommeau and Calvados.

We’ll worth the cost and distance to see the Mont. Very crowded on Main Street but elsewhere was fine. Bring your own lunch but watch out for the hungry sea gulls. My wife almost get hers snatched away. The bathroom stops before and after were timed well. Staff was great and I will book through Get Your Guide again.

Definitely worth a visit this unique location with valuable architectural heritage. A well-designed day trip, with an excellent guide Guillaume and a aprentice Haime. It is interesting to walk through the narrow streets with shops and restaurants to the top where the abbey is. Not for people with reduced mobility. See the wearher forcast, it might rain.
