It’s a long trip but well worth it! The guides were extremely helpful and provided useful tips and also a nice recap of the history of France and the Normandy region. From the parking lot, they will give you the option of taking a shuttle or walking the last few hundred meters or so. Definitely do the walk once, better on the way back if you can plan your time, allowing a good 45 mins for the stroll. Definitely have some light snacks/lunch/drinks in one of the restaurants. We tried the calvados and the apple tart, both were amazing!

We were tourists from Japan. The tour guide Raymond was really kind and his explanation about French history and Mont saint Michel were highly helpful and clear. After we arrived, we explored the place freely by ourselves. It was the right decision to walk to the island feeling local atmosphere and enjoying the beautiful scenery. We strongly recommend you to walk to the island. It took us 40 min to get to the castle.

We started late, almost half hour late. Maybe that is the correct timing to start. But why put pressure on all passengers to arrive early. Most of us missed hotel breakfasts and then waited in the cold. Maybe the timing should be meeting at 7:45. So everyone can enjoy their breakfast (mostly included in hotel tariff) and come charged up. Ride was smooth. Driver was a quiet shy chap and drove steadily. Well done. The Algerian trainer guide is good but needs more training in narrating the history in order. She went back and forth and confused many passengers. Last time I went it was Mini, she was very good. Her explanations were on point. She wasn’t into long monologues. Maybe a script is needed for inexperienced guides. That can help. Rest all was smooth. The return stop was a shorter one, but enough for a quick trip to the toilet. Nothing more. Overall, this is an independent trip. The long travel is worth it as the place is gorgeous.
