Mont-St-Michel Independent Day Tour with Optional Audio Guide from Paris
  • Mont-St-Michel Independent Day Tour with Optional Audio Guide from Paris

    Mont St. Michel, or “The Wonder of the West”, is one of France’s top attractions and the most popular destination in Normandy. Our day-trip transports you to this UNESCO World Heritage Site on a comfortable coach ride from Paris, taking in the landscapes of Normandy along the way. As you approach this unique island, you’ll catch your first glimpse of its famous 10th-century gothic abbey. You’ll have four hours to explore at your leisure, with your multi-language audio guide. Wander through the village and its steep streets, visit the abbey with its medieval architecture, hunt out picture-postcard views across the Atlantic, and watch as the tide rises around the island. Don’t forget to taste local, seasonal products in the traditional décor of one of the many eateries. We’ve negotiated preferential offers in several restaurants, as well as discounts in shops and museums. The island is yours to enjoy at your own pace, before you return to Paris by coach.

      This was a well organised tour from Paris with the freedom of being an independent tour. It allowed for time to really explore the sight at your own leisure. The Mont-St-Michel is definitely a must sight to see!

      This is a place that you should really make the effort to go and see! The bus ride from Paris and back is a bit long but still very with it. (With the exception of the Viator bait and switch for my ticket prices!)The tour company operating the trip and the destination of course we're absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend the Mont-St
      Michel trip and if possible stay closer so you can spend more time there. It was possibly the best part of our 2 weeks in Paris, Amsterdam, and Bruges.

      The tour itself was a simple affair - basically a ride to and from Mont St. Michel. We did not opt to include the audio guide since we had our 5 year old son with us and wanted to allow him the chance to just wander. The site itself was incredible - by far the highlight of our trip to France. It was like Hogwarts and Diagon Alley had a baby. Highly recommend it and appreciated the air conditioned ride with well timed pitstops.

      We had a great time visiting Mount Saint Michael. We went on this self-guided with an English audio recorder. It was helpful to have some information about the things that we were seeing. We did not purchase the tour that included lunch. I am glad we didn't as it appears that they had less time at Mount Saint Michael to explore. There were plenty of places with a variety of price went ranges at Mount Saint Michael for you to eat. While indeed it is an all-day tour it is worth it at least to me.

      This is definitely the highlight of the trip. Viator Inc. did an excellent job with the organized trip. First, the bus was very clean and comfortable. The 4- hour each way bus ride was pleasantly smooth and relaxing. The scenery on the way to Mont St. Michel is amazingly beautiful, super lush green pastures and the most brilliant green vegetation. Completely different than Paris. Mont St. Michel is a magical place to visit. If you a visiting France, take the day to visit this place and you will not regret it. Oh, and book it with Viator Inc.

      Great Tour! If you get carsick on long rides, bring motion sickness medicine because it is a long drive. Weather was windy, but what do you expect when you're on a hill, basically, sometimes, in the English Channel.

      My brother and I did the self-guided tour. If you choose the same, be sure to bring your own earphones/headphones for the audio pen! For those of you with Apple Lightning EarPods / wireless accessories, those will not work because the audio pen only accepts accessories with 3.5mm audio jacks.

      The bus left at 7:15AM sharp, and was very prompt about departures in general. If you go on this tour, be sure to not be late! Don't worry about food or toilets along the way there were two pit stops total one outbound, one inbound, each with quick bites like baguette sandwiches and pastries as well as very accommodating restrooms. Everyone is required to leave the bus during these pit stops, but I wouldn't be too worried about leaving inconsequential items behind--the bus is locked during the break. During the first break everybody brought all their stuff off, but by the second stop nobody really cared, and there was stuff littered all about the seats. At the first pit stop, we got the menu combo meal which comprised of a baguette sandwich, dessert pastry, and drink for under 10. If you want to keep costs down like we did, you can eat the pastry for breakfast/snack, and then save the baguette sandwich for lunch at the Mont.

      Once we arrived at the parking area, those of us who chose the self-guided tour were free to proceed to the Mont. There is the option of a tram comes every half hour, moves fairly slowly, usually pretty crowded from what we saw, or you can walk directly to the entrance. If you don't mind the distance, I would recommend the latter, as a crowded tram will obstruct the beautiful view of the Mont. It is also better to walk on your way back to the bus if there isn't a tram in sight 20-30 minutes before your departure time. You do not want to be waiting on the bridge 10 minutes before your departure even if the tram were to appear right there and then, you'd never make it. Adjust this recommendation according to your own abilities, comfort levels, and time constraints

      Once you reach the base of the Mont, you will have two choices: proceed into the entrance, or walk out on the sand AT YOUR OWN RISK. You will be warned more than once that the tide can sweep in very quickly, and there is danger of quicksand these warnings are certainly to be heeded, however us and many other small groups were able to safely navigate the area NEAR THE CHAPEL/BRIDGE without any protest from other guides or security personnel. I would not recommend venturing closer to the water for the above safety concerns. You won't get a better photo op of the Mont besides the bridge, which has a high tendency to be polluted with offloading trams and walking people. Whether you choose to walk on the sand or not, be sure to do it at the beginning and not when you've reached the top my brother and I burned valuable time changing our minds at the top.

      Once you've reached the Abbey, choose the line for existing ticket-holders, which was to the left when we were there. Our Kanken backpacks were accepted in, as well as the food/drink within YMMV with other-sized backpacks and food not obfuscated by a bag. A quick stop at the ticket window to the left, and you're all set to explore the Abbey!

      ...that should be it. Though we were not part of their tours, the guides were still very helpful and friendly to us, and the trip overall was pleasant. Thanks to Viator and ParisCityVision for helping me and my brother realize a long-time bucket list destination!

      3 hour bus ride to Mont St. Michel was OK but the brief 1/2 hour rest and coffee stop was not long enough. Women had to wait 20 minutes to use the restroom. Other tour buses crowded rest stop. No rest and no breakfast. Plan ahead to eat before you get on the bus. They did not want hot drinks on the bus. Took self guided tour and ate apart from the group. Best thing we could have done. Moved along quickly on the tour with provided guide book.

      This really is an amazing site and a well deserved inclusion on the list of Unesco sites. Plenty of time was allowed in which to see the abbey and get lunch. The only downside is the distance from Paris. It's a very long day, but we were very glad we did it and would recommend this tour. We did the self-guided tour and were glad to have done it. We were able to pace the tour as we wanted rather than following a guide. The only thing I quibble with is the listening guide given to us from Paris City Vision downplayed the purpose of this abbey which was making copies of the Bible. They mentioned it more as an aside and I don't think that's fair to what actually happened and made the tour less interesting because of it. We do recommend this tour and it was very enjoyable!
