From Paris: Small-Group Mont St Michel Tour & Cider Tasting

1. From Paris: Small-Group Mont St Michel Tour & Cider Tasting

Discover one of the most unique settlements in France on a day trip from Paris to the mountainous city island of Mont St-Michel on the Normandy coast. Transfer from Paris by comfortable minibus or van, and then enjoy some free time on arrival at the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rising from the sea or sand (depending on the tide), the town is known for its soaring spires, imposing ramparts, and steep streets. Crowned by the fortified Abbaye du Mont St-Michel (dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel), Mont St-Michel remains little changed since the Middle Ages. Explore the village at your own pace, and the interior of the abbey (where Benedictine monks still hold early morning mass) by audio guide. Hear stories of the legends of a unusual jewel of France. Normandy is also known for it’s wonderful apple production and you’ll make a special stop to taste some of the famous Cider Pommeau and Calvados.

You have to get up early, the day with a small tour group and with an excellent, very friendly and competent driver and tour guide (Antoine) was worth every minute, every step and every EURO! The Mont St. Michel is overwhelming and if, as was the case on that day, the weather was great, then one can only be amazed! Certainly other seasons also have their attraction to experience the world cultural heritage: unreservedly recommended and again many, many thanks to our guide!

Definitely worth a visit this unique location with valuable architectural heritage. A well-designed day trip, with an excellent guide Guillaume and a aprentice Haime. It is interesting to walk through the narrow streets with shops and restaurants to the top where the abbey is. Not for people with reduced mobility. See the wearher forcast, it might rain.

Thanks Victoria and the 2 trainees Philip and Laura for the wonderful trip. Mont Sant Michel is wonderful, especially feel very relax and having fun along the way communicate with you guys. Definitely will book another tour with BlueFox Travel when i will get a chance back to Paris in the future!
