The Mont-Saint-Michel is truly a must see when visiting Normandy with your family. The iconic abbey and monastery on top of the island dominated a medieval fortified town of 50 inhabitants.
Meet your private, fully-licensed chauffeur-guide at your hotel in Bayeux and hop in a luxurious, fully-equipped V-class minivan to reach the Mont-Saint-Michel. After a 1.5-hour drive, you will reach the parking lot, and take a shuttle bus to the island (if time enables it, you can even walk there).
Follow your guide as they take you through the narrow streets of this medieval town, all the way up to the abbey.
After a detailed and fun-filled visit of the abbey and monastery, where many medieval monks used to copy and illuminate manuscripts back in the Middle-Ages before becoming a prison, your chauffeur-guide will take you to Avranches where you will either go see the Scriptorium, a fun, interactive museum where the remaining old manuscripts of the Mont-Saint-Michel are exposed, or a bell factory, one of the very few who still make all kinds of bells, including the huge church bells.
Once this 45 minute visit is over, your chauffeur-guide will bring you back to your hotel in Bayeux.
Attention: A supplement will be added and modifications to the program will be made if pick up and drop off is not in Bayeux.
