I did the day trip to Mont Saint Michel from Caen with Vanessa and it was wonderful. She was very patient with our group when we were got too excited and took too many pictures and gave a fascinating tour of the abbey. She was very friendly and her tips of where to go for lunch were very good. You... More

It was wonderful to view Le Mont Saint-Michel from the distance. But seeing it up close was better. It was very crowded on a beautiful weekday. It would probably be impossible on a weekend. It was fantastic walking through the old buildings. To get the most out of your visit, we prepared to climb steps. If you just want to... More
