Upon arrival at the meeting point, you will be welcomed by your English speaking guide who will be waiting with a sign bearing the name of the tour and with the Ophorus logo on it. Also, all our guides have a nominative badge so that it will be easy for you to recognize them.

Once you have met your guide, he/she will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, board your comfortable, air conditioned Mercedes minivan and begin to make your way to visit Mont Saint Michel.

All our vehicles are equipped with an on board P/A system which means that everyone will hear the guide's commentary during driving time, even if you are seated in the back of the van! Also, we have bottled water at your disposal and you can use our free wifi as you travel from one destination to another.

Travel to Southern Normandy

The UNESCO World Heritage Listed, Remarkable Gothic Jewel Mont Saint Michel is an island off the coast of Normandy, in the English Channel, and is one of the best Normandy tours you can choose. It is located about 1 kilometer from the shore and sits in a bay that sees some of the biggest tides in Europe. A few years ago, it was linked to the mainland by a bridge that gets flooded during high tides a few times a year only. 

The first church was built on the mount in 709 at the request of Archangel Michael. A couple of hundred years later, a small group of Benedictines settled there permanently and the church was enlarged. The first monastery was carved in the rock in the 11th century and gradually got bigger and bigger over the following centuries. In the medieval time, it quickly became an important destination for pilgrims, just like Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

Visit the Benedictine Abbey with your guide

The construction of the Mont Saint Michel abbey as we know it nowadays was finished in the 13th and 14th centuries, and the grand chancel was replaced in the 15th century. Those hundreds of years of architectural prowess's have left us with a magnificent monument, now referred to as the “Wonder of the Western World”. It is also a UNESCO world heritage site.

During your day trip to Mont St Michel, our friendly English-speaking driver / guide will take you from Bayeux to the Mont Saint Michel, which you will access via a shuttle and the bridge in accordance with local requirements. While on the road, make sure to take it all in and observe the beauty of the Normandy coastline.

Our Mont Saint Michel tour will then take you to the abbey itself, at the very top of the mount. Follow your guide on a walking tour. The history of its construction will be explained in detail and while you are there, make sure to snap some pictures of the amazing views on the surrounding bay!

Mont Saint Michel is also a lively small town

After the visit of the abbey, enjoy some free time to explore the town at your own pace and bring back some souvenirs for friends and family. Your guide will also suggest some great restaurants for lunch, suitable for all budgets.

If you want to indulge, the Mère Poulard restaurant is probably the most famous on the mount. It gained its reputation thanks to its unique "omelet soufflé" recipe. It is well worth a visit and a must-try when on a Mont Saint Michel day tour but keep in mind you will need a large amount of time as the restaurant is so popular with visitors.

Our other day trips departing from Bayeux:

We also organize group tours and private tours from Paris and shore excursions from Le Havre to all the major battles sites, d day beaches, cemeteries and memorials relating to the battles of Normandy including the American cemetery in Colleville sur Mer. Our full day tours in Normandy include Guided tours to Sword Beach, Juno Beach and Omaha Beach. Other destinations include Mont Saint Michel from Bayeux. All our tours can be done as a day trip from Paris. Our services cover both Normandy and Brittany.

    We mainly employ accredited and licensed tour guides that are also the drivers for all tours that need visits to be conducted by certified guides. Good examples are: the visit of museums, guided walking tours in cities, visit of historical monuments such as Mont Saint Michel and so on. 

    For some tours, such as the day trips from Bayeux dedicated to WWII, passionate guides that were history teachers, ex servicemen will be with you to explain the details of the battles that raged. All our guides are first and foremost very skilled drivers and all of them speak impeccable English.
  • Is Bayeux the ideal town and departure point for Normandy D-DAY tours?

    If you are looking to experience Normandy in the best possible way, then our day trips from Bayeux make for an ideal departure point. The charming small town of Bayeux has a large number of options when it comes to accommodation and dining. Moreover, the historic medieval city centre as well as the famous Tapestry are part of the best things to do while in Bayeux.
  • Will we have some free time for personal discovery of Mont Saint Michel?

    Yes, after the morning guided visit of the Abbey, the rest of your time at the Mont Saint Michel is for you to enjoy. You can either stay a bit more at the top of the Mount or decide to make your way back down slowly. On your way, don't hesitate to take some of the smaller side streets that are less crowded and that can lead to some stunning views over the Bay.
  • How difficult is it to reach Mont Saint Michel Abbey?

    Mont Saint Michel as the name points out, is a mount and the Abbey is located at the top of the Mount! There are roughly 350 stairs that you will need to climb to reach the Abbey - around 200 stairs are in the village itself and the remaining 150 are within the Abbey. Therefore, if you have reduced mobility then the safer option is to stay in the village. This tour is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
  • Is lunch included on this shared full day trip from Bayeux?

    No, we never include lunch on our shared tours. However, please note that you will have a sufficient amount of free time to have lunch in the village of Mont Saint Michel. There are a very large number of choices when it comes to eating from snacks, sandwiches to local retaurants and brasseries.
