  • From Paris: Full-Day Mont Saint-Michel Guided Tour

    3. From Paris: Full-Day Mont Saint-Michel Guided Tour

    On this full-day tour from Paris you will discover Mont Saint-Michel, a traditional Norman village. On the drive through Normandy, your guide will recount the rich history of the region marked by invasions, first by the Romans and then the Barbarians, before the region was fought over in the Hundred Years’ War. You will have lunch in the restaurant Relais St Michel, facing the Mont Saint-Michel. You will then tour the famous Abbey and admire the Gothic buildings built on top of each other over the centuries, such as the Cloister and the Monks’ dining hall. You will then be free to stroll around the village and let yourself be taken back to the medieval atmosphere in its narrow paved streets.

    The time spent on the tour was rushed and did not have time to appreciate all that the Mont Saint Michel had to offer. It would be so much better if the coach journey started earlier in the morning and then left the Mont later in order to get the best experience possible. Especially when paying nearly £300 for 2 people to only get 2hrs in the Abbey.

    Fred was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable about both Monet and the Palace of Versailles. Went back and forth whether to book a trip with or without lunch but so glad we booked this trip. The quaint restaurant was superb. The opulence of the palace was mind blowing however, the highlight for both of us was Monet’s lily pond/ garden and house tour. Simply amazing and the transportation was very comfortable with a great driver Florian. I would recommend Fred and this tour without reservations

What people are saying about Normandy

Adi was a great guide and we loved the tour. Definitely worth the drive. Things to know: no place to charge devices on bus and no wifi but ride is very comfortable. Lunch was not great and I’d say the only negative of the trip.

We did a similar tour 6 years ago and this one was definitely better!! It was much more personal, as there were only 5 people on the tour. We especially enjoyed Utah beach and a trip to the cider farm!

I really loved this trip! It was super informative and moving. And our guide Adrian was wonderful. He kept everyone engaged and he was super knowledgeable.

Have taken many guided trips across the globe, haven’t seen any tour guide as knowledgeable as Addy!!! As she mentioned, giving her 10000 stars out of 5 :)

Adrian was a fantastic guide. We enjoyed the tour very much.
