DESCRIPTION

Mont-Saint-Michel tour from Paris

Depart from Paris and make your way to the medieval island of Mont-Saint-Michel with an air-conditioned bus. Discover this famous UNESCO world heritage site and its iconic Gothic abbey accompanied by an expert tour guide. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear legendary stories and learn all about its fascinating history from your knowledgeable guide.

Travel through the French countryside to the charming fortified island of Mont- Saint-Michel, situated along the Normandy coast. Sit back, enjoy your bus ride, and soak in the captivating views of the countryside along the way.

You will have enough free time to explore the nearby village, which dates back to the days of the Normans. Stroll across the narrow streets and winding paths to discover the mesmerizing views of the bay. After that, take a walk along the Couesnon River, where Mont-Saint-Michel was built on an island a few hundred meters from the mainland.

Easy booking process & very well-organized tour!

A fantastic tour with an incredible tour guide! Laura was amazing, she explained the history of Saint Michel in the most entertaining way. We had plenty of time to explore everything and admire all the beauty this little island has to offer. The weather wasn't the best, but we wanted to travel during the weekdays to avoid the crowds, so we didn't mind. Definitely recommend this trip - 10/10!

A magical experience!

Going on this Mont Saint Michel Tour from Paris is an absolute MUST! We chose an audio-guided tour because we wanted to experience this majestic island at our own pace. Our jaws dropped when we saw how similar Mont-Saint-Michel is to a Harry Potter town. Truly magical! The temperature was over 30 degrees on the day we visited the island, but despite that, we wished we could stay a bit longer.
