Stepping Up to History
Margaret_S, Mar 2023
Best day of our entire trip to France. Wear sturdy shoes and be prepared for many steps. Our guide Marion was energetic, very knowledgeable and fun. We learned a lot about the history, architecture and beauty of Mont Sainte Michel. It was an all around fantastic experience’
Unforgettable day at Mont Saint-Michel
Susan_S, Mar 2023
We spent the day with Rose at Mont Saint-Michel and it was thoroughly amazing. Being with a guide who completely knows the logistics on and off as well as one who has so much knowledge of the site and history was invaluable. Her understanding of the architecture and all the little details was one of the highlights. She was a very gracious guide and if we are in the area in the future we will connect with her again. Thank you Rose for an unforgettable day!
Great tour and guide!
Mona_K, Mar 2023
We had an amazing tour with Marion. She was so knowledgeable about the Abbey and the entire area. She was attentive and her sense of humor made this a perfect tour. Marion had a warm demeanor and a fun energy. Glad she was our guide.
Wonderful Experience

Tour guide was great — very knowledgeable. Museums are closed on Sunday. No large crowds during the off season (Dec).
Highly recommended!

Mont Saint-MIchel is an amazing structure, Rose is the guide!!!!
gregory_g, Nov 2022
The Structure is amazing and be ready to climb a lot of steep stairs. The guide, ROSE, was GREAT!!! She gave a great tour with large amounts of history. She was very nice and we could not have asked for a better guide! Well worth the cost!!!
Fantastic day with Julie...

Fantastic day with Julie as our guide. She was very personable and knowledgeable and engaged with everyone in our group. Great tour of the incredible Mount St. Michel!
Fabulous Mont Saint Michel
David_A, Nov 2022
We took this full day tour from Bayeux to have the Mont Saint Michel experience, without having to worry about the details. Our guide, Marion, was fabulous. From our hotel pick up to our return at the end of the day, everything went smoothly and professionally. Having a tour helped us by pass the long entrance lines, gave us valuable information along the way, and explained what we were seeing and the history behind it. I highly recommend this tour! It was a great day!!
Great Tour
Rebecca_G, Nov 2022
Adrian was the best! Very informative and knowledgable. I learned a lot as he was thorough in his tour of the abbey. Liked the free time for souvenir shopping, but it was too crowded for food and I visited on a slow day in the off season!
Christine_D, Oct 2022
We made new friends and learned so much. Art guide was excellent and gave so many fun tips, stories and information.
Medieval town comes alive
Alexander_D, Oct 2022
Medieval town comes alive with this tour. Beautiful views and plenty of time to wonder around. Be prepared to walk up many steps. You can also attend Mass.
A day of Mont Saint-Michel
David_H, Oct 2022
We had a small group tour (5) with Marianne and she did a great job of explaining the history behind the island. She took her time making sure she answered all questions and had several jokes for us. The tour never felt rushed.
Wonder tour!
travtime1, Oct 2022
Our tour guide was amazing (Aurore), she did such a good job explaining what we were seeing! She was patient, kind, and knowledgeable! This was a great tour. We were picked up from our hotel on time and enjoyed the ride through the countryside. Tour was timed perfectly with plenty of time to explore on our own and have lunch.
Do this tour
Ann_G, Oct 2022
Our tour guide was new she did a fabulous job. We adored her. She took her time driving. Very good driver. If she did not know the answer to our questions she took notes to find out for her next tour. We were all very seasoned travelers. She impressed us.
SarahJane_S, Oct 2022
Our tour guide was late in picking us up as she had car trouble with the first van and had to exchange for another car, which turned out to have problems during the trip requiring us to stop at a station and purchase oil which the guide had to instill. Shouldn't a reputable company have personnel to keep the fleet running? This, obviously, made the guide nervous, especially since she was new to this tour/job. Perhaps, because of this hiccup in our transport, the guide drove quite fast. I wasn't the only one in the group to be disquieted by our speed. The guide was very friendly, personable and obviously knowledgeable, but driving safety was not her priority that day.
Great day trip

Julie was our guide and she was great! While she had boundless energy, we weren’t all in top shape. She worked with everyone and made sure we all got to the top! We all had a really enjoyable day.
