The trip to get there and back is tiring. The abbey is magnificent and it was worth the 3+ hours each way. However, I have read that to get the chance to see the high tides and the island surrounded by water, it has to be later in the afternoon/early evening. This trip could start a bit later and end later to have the chance to see the distinctive event.

The place is worth the time and $. Make sure you wear warm clothes in the winter, the mont is very windy. The tour guide was really nice!! Be prepared to stay more time in the bus than in the mont. Go straight to the top when you get there because it gets chaotic around the restaurants and if you wanna eat there, be prepared to wait on the line for a few minutes. Get the shuttle, it doesn’t take that long to wait, I walked there in the morning and it was also very beautiful. Just be balanced and you’ll have a great time.

Great experience - Mont Saint Michel was beautiful and easy to navigate around, thanks to the amazing guide! Defo worth the trip, it is a little pricey, considering we only paid for the transportation and entry ticket (no guided tour). The coach was good, though it had a funky smell and had drink spillages from a previous tour that wasn’t cleaned before our tour.
