“Excellent shell fish hunt!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Chemins organises variety of walks to Mont St Michele and in the area. We've booked shell fish hunt, which was a good fun. The group consisting of mostly French families, many with young kids, ( good cultural immersion) was lead by an experienced bi- lingual guide. We basically walked to a few spots where we dug sand for shell fish. There were varying degrees of luck, but everyone took home something. Couple of people even managed to find oysters... Although it wasn't a sunny day it was still pleasant enough...

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

All I can say is WOW ! ! I don't do well with stairs so this trip was a challenge... but I made it to the top...one flight of stairs at a time... the history and archecture are amazing... you can spend hours just wandering around... we had a car for this leg of our trip, but parking was not a problem.. you can either walk from the parking(about a mile) or take the buses that run from the town. My son did the walk which he said was not hard and well worth the extra time... Again I have to stress the stairs, just be prepared... take your time it's well worth the effort...
