Breathtaking. Worth every penny.
, Oct 2019
We were lucky enough to have the same guide for two excursion days and he was THE BEST! While he drove us to our sites, we were able to converse all about architecture, history, politics, French life, etc. He was personable, funny, and great with our children. He alone was worth the tours. Mont Saint Michel itself is a magical place. It is super special and unique. You won't regret booking this tour.

Amandine was wonderful! She had incredible knowledge of the site and especially the history that she shared with us! The stairs and climbing could be daunting, but she paced the tour perfectly! It was an incredible experience and one not to miss if you are in the area! And Amadine made the whole experience outstanding!

Private tour is the best way to see Mont Saint-Michel. Our tour guide Roman was outstanding, we couldn't image anyone better! Roman is incredibly personable and knowledgable with all of the war history of Normandy and Mont St Michel. We all wished we'd had him on our DDAY tour the following day. Pros: Pickup was efficient. Being driven through Normandy to Mont St Michel is picturesque. Roman gave us the history of the region as we drove to Mont St Michel. Roman navigated us effortlessly thru Mont St Michel crowds giving us very informative and detailed accounts of the history of Mont St Michel. Cons: There are long lines all of the time but that's to be expected and worth it.

At first I thought this was a pricey tour but it was worth the money! Not having to drive and worry about directions was nice. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He showed us every spot at Mt. St. Michel. He was able to recommend and book a yummy and authentic lunch.

Our guide, Adrien, picked us (and it was a private tour) up at the agreed upon time and we drove 90 minutes to Mont St. Michel. Adrien explained a lot of things in preparation and we were well prepared as we rose to the top. He explained a great deal to us. And he four the best place for lunch.
