Our guide Raymond was very friendly and made our trip very enjoyable. It is 4.5 hours bus ride from Paris and we got 3 hours to stay in Mont Saint Michel. As it was off- season, it was not crowded at all and it was really nice. But if you are planning to visit during off-season, please note that only few stores and restaurants are open. It is worth the visit even during winter. Mont Saint Michel was truly one and only, there are no simpler place like it. Make sure to pack warm clothes+windproof items. It is very windy.

Mont-Saint-Michel was such a beautiful sight! Definitely worth the long hours of travel to see it. However, the travel is a bit gruesome as the only sensible option is by coach bus. Definitely wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to hike but once you get to the top of the island and the abbey, the views will definitely blow you away! If your tour is on a tight schedule, I would absolutely suggest bringing snacks and drinks as you may not have time to sit down at one of the restaurants/bars, even in the off-season it was pretty crowded. Great day trip if you have the time!

The tour is tiring because it takes 4 hours to go there and 4 more to come back, but it's super worth it when you get there. The place is magnificent and even with little time, we had time to visit all the hills, the abbey and even sit in a cozy restaurant to try the local cider. My advice is: taste all kinds and bring them. It's very tasty and it's that flavor that makes you miss. For vegans, we have options. Just ask. If it's your dream to visit the mountain, the 4 hours round trip won't make any difference. I recommend the tour with eyes closed. The feeling of being there is unbelievable.
