Embark on one of our a private shore excursions of Mont St. Michel, one of the most unforgettable places in France, with our fantastic English-speaking tour guide. Mont Saint Michel, whose namesake bay boasts one of the world’s highest tidal ranges, is a truly memorable sight.

After a brunch at Carrouges Castle (summer) or on the Mont St. Michel (winter), the tour begins at the Abbey, founded at the turn of the 8th century. The Abbey became a major cultural and pilgrimage center during the Middle Ages. You will visit the Romanesque Church, the Gothic "Marvel" with the monk's cloisters and refectory, the Knights Room, the Guest Room, the Undercroft, the Refectory, and more. The tour also includes several chapels: St. Stephen, St. Martin, Our Lady Underground, St. Mary Magdalene, and the 11th-century Crypt of the 30 Candles.

After lunch (we recommend La Mère Poulard in the Mont St. Michel), you will stroll the steep narrow streets of the village and its ramparts. On the drive back, you will tour the town of Villedieu les Poêles, famous for its numerous artisan shops selling exceptional goods made of leather, lace, copper and tin.
