Dating back to the 10th century, the distinctive island community was named one of the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1979 and is one of the most photogenic landmarks in France.

After arriving on the island, begin with a lunch stop at La Mère Poulard restaurant, famous for its fluffy, decadent omelettes.

In the afternoon, visit the magnificent Mont Saint-Michel Abbey that caps the island, offering spectacular views of the bay and coastline. Built by Benedictine monks beginning in the 10th century, the Abbey has survived the elements and manmade conflicts throughout the centuries and is a symbol a French national pride. Enjoy a bit of free time to wander the island’s narrow backstreets and shops before the return drive to Paris, where the 13-hour tour concludes at the Arc de Triomphe in the evening.

Phillipe, our driver was awesome...

Phillipe, our driver was awesome! For him...TEN stars. But the adventure was really about touring Mont St-Michel. For the price, Viator should provide a personal, LIVE tour guide. The headphones do NOT function well at all...what a disappointment! The lunch quality slightly above average. The waitress took 2 1/2 hours to provide a lunch. Consequently cutting into our overall tour time which followed also not good. Viator...get your act together!
