Amazing place but guide was TERRIBLE!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We arrived at 6.55am for a departure time of 7.15am
But because the tour guide let the wrong people on our bus we didn’t depart until 8am! She was extremely disorganised and did have any idea what she was doing!

The bus trip to mont saint michel was ok but 30 min stop at a petrol station both there and back was a bit long!!

The actual place of mont saint michel was spectacular!! We only had 2 hrs out there because it’s a 30minute walk from the bus drop off which meant we could not sit at a restaurant and eat which was very disappointing so we looked around then returned

It is an amazing place but based on my experience it is not worth the 8-9hrs sitting on a bus for 3hrs at the mont saint michel (30min walk to and from)

Bus was very nice, lunch was good, tour of the Mont was very good. It was a long day to be sure, but a very special trip to a place I'd not seen before. Met really nice folks on the drive there and had a great day.

This was so well organised and our guide was so helpful! Loved the day at Mont St Michel even tho it’s 10 hours on a bus (5 hrs there and 5 hrs back) and 4 hrs at Mont St Michel! It’s such a beautiful and awesome place to visit that I’d highly recommend it to anyone!

Worth the time
Jun 2019 • Family
We have visited Paris before but had never gone to Mont St- Michel before. We signed up for the day trip with transportation and tickets only no audio guide. While the bus ride is long @ 3 hours each way; the double decker bus was very comfortable and clean. There was a top for restrooms and snacks each way. The scenery at the destination is really great. For photographers you will not be disappointed. Lunch was on your own. The restaurants there are very slow so beware if you choose a sit down meal. You may not make it to the top and be able to have a sit down meal and make it back to the bus in time. There were many grab and go type places with local flavors. This is not a good excursion for those with strollers or folks who can’t climb lots of stairs.

There must be a better way to see Mont. St. Michel
Aug 2019
We booked a Paris City Vision full day tour to Mont St. Michel. We would not do another tour with them in the future. The booking reference we received said to be at the city office departure point at 7:15, but when we called in to check the day before they said we should be there half an hour earlier.

The confusion on the morning was an unpleasant start to the day. People were given numbers, but the organisers kept changing which parking space the various busses were departing from…..Bus 5 over here, then over there, then back over here, then over to that space.

Once we were boarding the bus the attitude towards those on the "full tour" (lunch included and guided tour in village) were greeted cheerfully; we were told "you're only doing the transport" and then ignored the remainder of the trip. By the way, we weren't interested in the menu for lunch, which is why we didn't do the full tour…we could certainly have afforded it. So the rudeness was unnecessary.

Stops along the way (it is a four hour drive) were at a service station clearly unequipped to deal with the crowds arriving. Given a 20 minute stop and a 15 minute wait for a toilet (even though women were also queueing for the men's facilities) made making any purchases of food or drink virtually impossible.

Coach driver was far more interested in "protecting" his coach than in passengers. On three out of four occasions he stood at the door of the coach and refused to let anyone on board, checking his watch until the exact minute he had decided to open the doors. This mean older passengers and children had to stand in front or, or around, the coach.

I can't comment on the guided part of the trip, but given what we experienced, I would not travel with them again and would seek alternative tour operators. Bus seeing Mont. St. Michel is certainly something we would recommend.

Disappointed
Aug 2019 • Family
The site was absolutely beautiful. I was truly excited for this. Unfortunately, it was a let down due to overcrowding. The bus ride was comfortable and the tour guides were friendly. Once we arrived, we waited about ten minutes to cram ourselves into a shuttle to the site. It was a 40 minute walk. When we got inside, we realized that there were hundreds of people crammed into these tiny streets. It took us about a half hour to get through the Main Street. Everywhere you went you felt like cattle. If there was half the people there it would have been much more enjoyable. The amount of people there didn’t even seem safe. Half of our time spend there was trying to get in and out through this massive crowd. We didn’t get to explore much. We decided to take the 40 minute walk back. Hopefully if the future they limit the amount of people that can be there at a time because now it’s nothing short of a nightmare. Waste of a day and money.

A Long Journey
Jun 2019 • Solo
In total 8-hour sitting in the rather comfortable coach indeed scares people away. However, the view at the Mont Saint Michel made a huge compensation, which totally makes the trip worthy.
If you are looking for comfort, you may have a second thought. If you are pursuing magnificence, nothing should stop you between the lavish Paris and unearthly Mont Saint Michel.
One suggestion: allow pre-registration so the queue can be shorter on the day. I actually went to the store days before my trip day to "check-in" per the instruction. Why I had to stand in the queue again on the day to do a second "check-in". Isn't one check-in enough?
Overall, Great Staff, Great Experience, with minor and neglectable issues which can be improved.

Not the best time
Apr 2019 • Family
This was a very expensive tour and not as great. The castle itself is beautiful but it is so crowded that it is impossible to be able to actually see anything.
Add to that makes for a long day with 5+hours drive one way, leaving hardly any time to spend at the castle.
The bus ride was comfortable thankfully.

Disappointed
We arrived before 7 for a 7.15 booking however most of the tour was already there, signed in and queuing for a packed tour. I can only assume that those choosing the lunch option were given an earlier time, my friend and I were lucky to have a seat together. The tour guide checking off names told us ‘hurry up and decide others are waiting to board’ well not many because they were already on the bus ! And we had been in the queue waiting for our turn too so think this type of comment is unhelpful. Our question was about being directed downstairs to sit. We felt even though we had chosen “discovery” tour which meant we didn’t join the lunch we were treated as second class passengers. Little direction given as to how to make the most of the visit not even a map provided! We would have appreciated a little info or background on the history during the 4 hour trip up, more details were provided to the lunch group via headset. This was one of the most expensive trips we joined during our Paris visit and the least enjoyable despite the investment of cash and time - this is simply a bus ticket and shouldn’t be called a tour ! The hosts were short and at times rude - not inclusive or welcoming. Won’t be using this service provider again.

Dear Margaret G, We are sorry to read that you did not enjoy your tour as you would have expected. We ask customers to get ot the office at leats 30 minutes before departure time, to make sure we do have time to board eveyrone and leave on time, especially in the morning, when many groups are leaving for different tours. You bought the tour that included transportation and the ticket entrance to the Abbey, a tour that allows you to enjoy the Mont-Saint-Michel at your own pace and taste. Information using the headsets were provided to customers who had an audioguided tour or guided tour. We apologize if you felt helpless during this day. We hope you still enjoyed your day at the Mont-Saint-Michel. Best Regards, Alexia
