You will be picked up in an air conditioned coach and travel to the Mont Saint Michel in Normandy. On the way, a qualified guide will tell you about the history of this region as you enjoy the beauty of the landscape.

The Mont Saint Michel abbey is built on a rocky islet and lies off the north coast of France. Surrounded by the sea and moving sands, it rises impressively out of the ocean. The structure has a slender spire with a copper statue of Michael the Archangel slaying a dragon. Mont Saint Michel was a great cultural centre and a pilgrimage destination in the Middle-Ages and now draws visitors to explore its Benedictine abbey and marvel at its dramatic setting.

Once you arrive at the Mont, you have the option to enjoy lunch at the Terrasses Poulard (in case of overcrowding, lunch can be served in another restaurant) and taste the famous Mont Saint-Michel omelette (a soufflé omelette cooked in a wood-fired oven).

In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the abbey. The Mont Saint Michel is built out of granite and has impressive Gothic buildings built over the centuries. The La Merveille, literally ‘the marvel’ are buildings on the northern side and there is a beautiful cloister and 13th century refectory. You will also have free time to wander along steep and narrow paths to admire a view of the bay and visit the village.

After your day in Normandy you will return to Paris by coach. The tour ends at original departure point at around 2115h (9:15pm).

Krista Townsend

The staff was friendly and informative. We were given interesting facts and history of the areas we traveled through. The tour guide was well informed and presented the information very well - not dull at all. Lunch was nice (included) and we had time to explore a bit after the guided tour. It was a long drive for a short amount of time, but still well worth it. Bring a book or some music for the ride :)

Carol A Scotman

What a wonderful day we had. Early start but worth it. On arrival at Mont St Michel we were treated to a wonderful three course meal (which was delicious) and the staff were more than friendly. The tour guides both gave us a most informative and interesting walk through the monastery and were patient with those who are a little slower (like me). The views were incredible andworth the extra effort to climb to the top of the monastery. Loved it!

Mary S Strader

Excellent tour! Expensive, but once you are there you forget about the price you paid. I feel like if we bought the tickets in person they would have been cheaper than online. But overall, we had a fantastic time. Skip the tour and lunch. The tours guides are awesome, but the lunch isn't so great. Spend the time on your own and get some food at MSM. You will be happy you did!

Carol D Miles

This was an amazing visit, the history, the church, the natural tides and the winding streets. Our guide was wonderful in getting us through just ahead of the larger groups, so we had plenty of photo opportunities . A great trip. All the meals we had on each tour were TOP NOTCH and exceeded our expectations!

Gertraud Eizenberger
