In the early morning, depart from Paris to reach the magical abbey-crowned island of Mont Saint-Michel, one of the most iconic sights in all of France. This fabulous tour of Mont Saint-Michel offers a hassle-free way to explore the island during a day trip from Paris with plenty of free time ensuring you don’t have to adhere to a rigid sightseeing schedule.
Your knowledgeable guide will provide some background information on the awe-inspiring UNESCO-listed island: you'll listen to interesting anecdotes about the history of this abbey, the island, and the surrounding region of Normandy, whose stunning scenery should be visible through the windows of the bus.
Upon arrival on the island, your guide will show you around during an orientation tour that will make sure you get to see all the most important attractions, leaving you outside the most famous of them all, the hilltop Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel. You'll then have a few hours to explore by yourself; you might want to soak up the splendor of the abbey interior with an audio guide tour or simply stroll the wonderfully picturesque streets in search of the perfect photo opportunity.
Lunch at your leisure in a wooden rafter-adorned dining room serving rustic meat-focused fare or a sophisticated restaurant with bay-view terraces where seafood from the surrounding waters takes center stage. Your guide can recommend restaurants to quell your cravings and match your budget. In the late afternoon, get back on the bus for the return journey to Paris.
