Complete Tour Description
Allow City Wonders to transport you from Paris to one of the most iconic sites in all of France, the island of Mont Saint-Michel. This fabulous tour offers a hassle-free way to explore the island during a day trip from Paris with plenty of free time ensuring you don’t have to adhere to a schedule.
Board your private bus and settle into your seat, relax while taking in the beauty of the French countryside. Half way through your journey enjoy a pit stop which gives you a chance to grab some breakfast or just stretch your legs.
On your approach to the island, your expert English speaking guide will provide insight on the UNESCO-listed island. Listen to interesting anecdotes about the history of this abbey, the island and the surrounding region of Normandy.
Upon arrival on the island, your expert guide will make sure you experience the most fascinating attractions, the most famous of them all, the hilltop Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel. Then take some time to yourself and enjoy it at your own pace.
You will also be provided with tickets to Mont Saint Michel’s Abbey which allows you to soak up the beauty of the abbey’s interior with an audio guide tour. Learn about how Mont Saint-Michel began humbly enough in the eighth century, when – citing orders from Archangel Michael himself – a bishop built a church on this small and secluded rock island.
Enjoy a variety of lunch options ranging from wooden rafter-adorned dining rooms serving rustic meat-focused fare to sophisticated restaurants with bay-view terraces where seafood from the surrounding waters takes centre stage. For a more casual and characteristically Breton feed, stop by one of Mont Saint-Michel’s crêperies and feast on galettes (buckwheat pancakes) paired with Normandy cider.
After taking in the breath-taking sights that Mont Saint-Michel offers and indulging in fine cuisine your air-conditioned coach will return you to Paris.
