From Paris: Small-Group Mont St Michel Tour & Cider Tasting

1. From Paris: Small-Group Mont St Michel Tour & Cider Tasting

Discover one of the most unique settlements in France on a day trip from Paris to the mountainous city island of Mont St-Michel on the Normandy coast. Transfer from Paris by comfortable minibus or van, and then enjoy some free time on arrival at the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rising from the sea or sand (depending on the tide), the town is known for its soaring spires, imposing ramparts, and steep streets. Crowned by the fortified Abbaye du Mont St-Michel (dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel), Mont St-Michel remains little changed since the Middle Ages. Explore the village at your own pace, and the interior of the abbey (where Benedictine monks still hold early morning mass) by audio guide. Hear stories of the legends of a unusual jewel of France. Normandy is also known for it’s wonderful apple production and you’ll make a special stop to taste some of the famous Cider Pommeau and Calvados.

Antoine was excellent! Very friendly and professional. We had a small group, 5 people which was nice. We went on January 3rd, and in the morning it was pretty empty which was wonderful!! It’s truly an astounding sight to see. However around 2- the crowds came and its very narrow, hard to walk, the restaurants filled up. Antoine said this was considered slow! He said in busy season- everyone marches slowlyyyy up the narrow street all bottle necking. If you get anxiety in crowds or small spaces, I would only go in a slow season. I’m so glad we got to experience it though. My favorite part was walking up to it, so surreal. Couldn’t put my camera down. Oh! To get away from the crowds, navigate to the wall ramparts, the walk is relatively empty and peaceful. The crepe place recommended to us by a friend “la sirene”, a hidden gem...not so hidden anymore. It’s upstairs from a souvineer shop with a big line. Overall lovely tour. Antoine was great!!! Thank you thank you !!!!

You have to get up early, the day with a small tour group and with an excellent, very friendly and competent driver and tour guide (Antoine) was worth every minute, every step and every EURO! The Mont St. Michel is overwhelming and if, as was the case on that day, the weather was great, then one can only be amazed! Certainly other seasons also have their attraction to experience the world cultural heritage: unreservedly recommended and again many, many thanks to our guide!

It is an experience to do. In fact, I missed it and therefore I returned to Paris to be able to do it. The organization was excellent because it was well organized. The guide really very good and helpful. The valid and comfortable means of transport

Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Tony was great and really seemed to love the history behind the landmarks. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous and is an absolute must visit while in France.

Olivier was wonderful guide. Insightful and knowledgable. He also was very helpful and listened to our needs. We were very happy to choose this way of visiting Mont-Saint-Michel!
