We were able to stay in Mont Saint Michel for about 4 hours and we were able to fully enjoy it. The galette shop recommended by Guyto was also delicious. Everything went on time and it was a very solid tour. Although it is an English tour, the audio guide of the monastery was able to be borrowed in Japanese, so it was easier to understand.

Our tour guide Addy did a very good job conducting our tour. Very outgoing and interested in the people on the tour. The bus was very up to date and the drivers did a great job.

Our guide is very attentive, in order it is a long journey but it is well worth it.

Wonderful experience and our guide Isabella fantastic !! And very helpful

The tour as a whole takes a lot of strength, but is definitely worth it.
