We opted for the Independent tour after reading other reviews and were happy with our choice.
Once the bus had parked we took the first shuttle to Mont St Michel. Most of the shops on the laneway were closed, but we were heading for the Abbey so did not mind. The Abbey is spectacular! We were very glad to see it ahead of the bustle of the rest of the crowd. There were no lines to wait in when we entered but as we exited, there definitely were. We had a late lunch at Croix Blanche after wandering the outer walls then slowly made our way back to the shuttle pick up.
We did not feel we had missed out not having a headphone talk while on the bus, or having to wait for the rest of the group having a set lunch. We packed a quick breakfast for on the bus and kept snacks for the journey back.
The pickup/drop off point was extremely convenient and easily to navigate to. Staff are very clear on expectations when to be back at the bus on all pit stops. The bus was clean and seats were comfortable - sitting on the ground level at the table gave us extra space.
An easier way to see a spectacular location. The perfect day trip. Highly recommended!

One of the most beautiful places I was able to visit on my trip to Europe. It is a lot of walking, many stairs, and uneven ground. Wear comfortable shoes and if you are traveling in the winter it is very windy. Make sure you know where the bus is going to be for departure time, because the bus that takes you to and from the Abby changes stops in the afternoon without you knowing and it can cause you to miss the bus.

It was worth the trip. Although we toured the abby independently, yet our tour guides and drivers were all very helpful. The coach was comfortable and relaxing. Thank you for conducting this tour. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this tour, specifically how self guided it was!
The coach was great to travel in and we were given lots of good information from our guide before arriving at Mont St-Michel! We had the perfect amount of time to explore the town, the abbey, have lunch and leisurely walk back to the bus. There were also audioguides available to rent at the abbey for anyone who wanted more info as well!
Definitely would recommend this tour, especially for people who like the self explore and see sites at their own pace!

I highly recommend this tour if you're trying to get to Mont St-Michel from Paris. It's a 5-hour trip each way, and there's no mass transit other than buses because it's so remote. Our bus driver made stops about halfway through each way, at a very nice rest stop type area where there were plenty of restrooms and lots of choices for drinks and food. Along the way, the guides that were with the tour gave us some history of the site.
Once at the bus parking area, a tram was available to take us to the main entrance. Some of those on the bus were taking the guided tour, but we were signed up only for the independent tour, and honestly, I feel like we got to see more at a more leisurely pace. I'm sure the guide offered some interesting tidbits and history, but I did my own research online before we went so we could explore at our own pace, and by doing so, we didn't waste time at the lunch that was scheduled for the tour group. We had plenty of time to see it all and we didn't feel rushed. I had time to walk the ramparts and look for photo ops, while my husband had a cold beer.
I highly recommend that you walk quickly past the numerous stores and street vendors at the bottom of the hill and head straight for the Abbey at the top. The crowds at the top get very overwhelming late in the afternoon, and you won't be able to see nearly as much. After you see the Abbey, you can then take a leisurely stroll back down, enjoying the sights as you go. Do take time to notice how quickly the tide rushes in around the island.
This company was higly organized, professional, and on time. Much better than several others that we worked with in our 3-week European vacation. I highly recommend them and this tour.

Exactly what we were looking for, comfortable transportation to and from the site with the freedom to explore on our own. Modern double-decker buses that made pit-stops allowing us to stretch our legs and grab a snack. Initially I was concerned about a nearly ten hour round-trip by bus. But a ride through the beautiful countryside topped off with the opportunity to experience an incredible UNESCO site made the entire trip worth it!

Worth taking the 4h each way bus ride from Paris for a day!
We took the independent version no guided tour or lunch and I recommend this approach. You can explore the abbey right away instead of going to the lunch outside of Mont St Michel with the group. You beat the crowds and see the Abbey without tons of people around.
Bus was comfortable. Seats go far back for easy napping. Bring your phone USB charger as the bus has USB plugs.
The bus stops for 30 mins each way. This is a bit longer than necessary but with groups it is expected.

Great day. Did independent tour and had enough time to do all we wanted. Long bus ride but that goes with seeing Mont St Michel. Loved it.

Super organisiert man hat genügend Zeit die Insel für sich zu erkundigen und kann auch selber noch zum Essen gehen. Es war ein schöner Tag mit zwei kleinen Pausen auf der Fahrt

We had an amazing time!
We didn and #39;t select the guided tour(we didn and #39;t get earbuds to listen to the guild) but they explained a ton to everyone on the bus.
Once we arrived, we loved just being able to explore ourselves and go as quickly or as slowly as we and #39;d like.
I and #39;d go again if I return to France!!

Mont St Michel is beautiful but please wear comfortable shoes if you plan to go. There are a lot of steps going up to the abbey as well as more steps once you are inside the abbey. I would not recommend this if you have knee issue as there seems to be over 100 steps just going up to the abbey. Otherwise, we enjoy this trip. We like the independent tour as we can do it at our pace.

a super long day, but so well worth every second. the scenery and location is just magical. i wish we had more time to explore. there are so many nooks and crannies. i plan on returning and staying in a hotel right on the mont to savor the tide going in and out, and the romantic atmosphere at night.

We loved this trip. This independent package was perfect for us: We just let Viator took care of the driving and we relaxed on the bus for this long drive. One thing I would like to warn the ladies, that is, be mindful of taking in the amount of liquid during travel. It's a 4.5 hour drive each way; the bus will stop half way for toilet break, but the line to get to the restroom is enormously long! my experience on this trip was that there were about 50-70 ladies waiting in line to get to the restroom. (on the way there, and on the way back!) So be ready to make that a priority as soon as the bus stops; else, you may end up stand in line at the end of the queue. We had plenty of time to each lunch, tour the castle, and shop. We highly recommend this.

It was amazing! I have always wanted to go..
Even though it was a self-guided tour, it would've been good had the tour guide included everyone in the telling of the history on the trip to Mont Saint Michel.
