Overview

Journey from Paris to the captivating island abbey and village of Mont Saint-Michel on a private, full-day tour. Travel through the Normandy countryside and coast to the mythical-looking Mont, which rises majestically from a tidal bay and was an important pilgrimage destination during the Middle Ages. Explore highlights of the unique community like the eighth-century hilltop monastery, Romanesque church and defensive ramparts. With a private driver and guide at your disposal all day, it's an easy and unforgettable way to experience one of France's cultural treasures.
  • Private day trip from Paris to historic Mont Saint-Michel
  • Travel in a private, comfortable vehicle through the French countryside to the Normandy coast
  • Explore the island's eighth-century abbey on a guided tour
  • Learn about the Mont's unique cultural history that makes it worthy of UNESCO World Heritage status
  • Enjoy free time for lunch and exploration in the afternoon
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Standing spectacularly among the shallow tidal marshes of the Normandy coast, Mont Saint-Michel has drawn pilgrims and visitors to its rocky shore for more than a millennium. Your own journey begins with morning pickup at your Paris hotel and an approximately 3-hour drive west in a comfortable minivan. Along the way, soak up the beauty of the French countryside and stop to stretch your legs and purchase any needed refreshments at a service station.

When you arrive at the coast, hop aboard a shuttle for transport to the Mont, built atop a lone granite rock in the middle of a vast tidal range. Begin with a guided tour of the Gothic abbey that sits perched on the highest point of the island and dates back to the early eighth century. Learn about the fascinating history of this sacred monastery, dedicated to the Archangel Saint Michel, and tour it's many components including the monks’ cloisters, the Knight's Room, the crypt, and various side chapels.

After visiting the abbey, enjoy leisure time for lunch (not included) and a stroll through the steep village streets and along the protective ramparts built to defend the island against invaders. Relax on the return drive to Paris, where the 13-hour tour concludes in the evening with drop-off back at your hotel.

This trip was awesome! Even though it was a 3.5-4 hour drive from Paris, Milan (our guide) made it memorable. He was extremely knowledgeable regarding the history of the abbey and gave a fantastic tour!

This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday in France. Our guide was just amazing, knowledgeable and had a great personality, which is important as it is an over 7 hour return drive from Paris. I would recommend this tour without reservations.

It was a trip we wanted to do but we were putting it off. However, this time we decided to go. It was absolutly magnificent! The area allows you to time travel to another era. It was like a Disney movie. Indeed it was once in a lifetime experience. Milan, our guide was so good. He had all the knowledge needed and more, not to mention he was kind, patient and entertaining. We learned so much from him, and we hope to do another tour with him next time we are in Paris.
