What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"Jean Baptiste was the driver/guide and right from the start interacted with the group and made everyone feel very welcomed. The journey was explained well with stops and very informative commentary with his knowledge of sites along the way as well as Mont Saint-Michel itself. The small group size was excellent - highly recommended!"
★★★★★
"This trip was excellent! Our tour guide, Jean Baptiste, was great--friendly, very knowledgeable, offering a lot of great practical travel advice for Paris and other areas of France. His knowledge of the history of Mont St. Michel, as well as France made the trip a lot of fun. The ride was long, but absolutely worth it to visit Mont St. Michel. The group was small, only about 8 people, so we didn't have to wait forever for people to get back to the van. Once we climbed up to the abbey, we had about 2.5 hours on our own to explore the abbey, the town and to grab lunch. Highly recommend this trip and this company!"

"Going to Mont Saint Michel in a small group is worth the money especially if you only have a few hours to spend in the island. I like the van, it clean and comfortable. The guide is ok."

"Lots of fun walking up the steps to the abbey. And a great tour through the layers of history in the abbey. St. Micheal is one of my favorite saints and this place was the epicenter of pilgrims to see him."

"What a wonderful trip this was! Our guide Oliver - "Call me Ollie" - was the consummate professional: a careful and attentive driver, very knowledgeable about our destination, and a friendly and welcoming person. Of course it helped that we were Kiwis and he was passionate about rugby :) The day was really well organised and we had plenty of time to enjoy the fascinating place that Mont Saint-Michel is. A real bonus was the cider-tasting at Le Pressoir du Mont. It was a great experience and helped to give us new insights into the rural traditions of Normandy. We thoroughly recommend this trip and if you happen to have Ollie as your guide then that's the perfect outcome."
