Experience the Enchanting Mont Saint Michel: Private Tour from Bayeux

Immerse yourself in one of the finest private tours available in Normandy, exploring this UNESCO World Heritage site.

Settle into your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle as we embark on a full-day private tour to Mont Saint Michel, an architectural marvel and a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site.

Centuries of Architectural Splendor at Mont Saint Michel Abbey

The story of Mont Saint Michel begins in 709 when the first church was constructed at the behest of Archangel Michael. Over the course of several hundred years, a small group of Benedictine monks settled on the island, leading to the expansion of the church and the creation of the first monastery carved into the rock during the 11th century. Throughout the medieval period, Mont Saint Michel emerged as a significant pilgrimage destination, akin to Spain's Santiago de Compostela.

The abbey we marvel at today took shape over the 13th and 14th centuries, with further enhancements in the 15th century, including the magnificent grand chancel. Centuries of architectural brilliance have given rise to this extraordinary monument, now hailed as the "Wonder of the Western World."

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mont Saint Michel

Embark on a scenic journey from Bayeux to Mont Saint Michel, where we'll reach the island via a shuttle (following scheduled departures) and cross the bridge in accordance with local regulations. As you travel, savor the picturesque Normandy landscape and witness the enduring debate between Normandy and Brittany over the site's regional affiliation.

Our Mont Saint Michel tour from Bayeux will guide you to the abbey perched atop the mount, home to the Benedictine Abbey. Follow your knowledgeable guide on a walking tour, delving into the intricate history of the abbey's construction. Capture awe-inspiring views of the surrounding bay as you ascend. Enjoy a guided tour of the Mont Saint Michel Abbey, followed by leisure time to explore the town and indulge in a satisfying lunch.

Mont Saint Michel: A Vibrant Town with Shops, Restaurants, and Museums

After the abbey visit, our guide will grant you the freedom to discover the charming town at your own pace. Delight in the abundance of shops, restaurants, and museums that breathe life into Mont Saint Michel. Choose delightful souvenirs for your loved ones while our guide recommends excellent lunch options. Rest assured, your private guide will remain available to answer any queries regarding the history and architecture of Mont Saint Michel.

Our Mont Saint Michel private tour accommodates small groups, with a maximum of 2 to 8 individuals. You'll travel in a modern, fully equipped Mercedes minivan. An experienced, certified, English-speaking guide will accompany you throughout the day, ensuring a personalized and informative experience.

As the tour concludes, we'll transport you back to your accommodation. Before bidding farewell, take the opportunity to visit the renowned Bayeux Tapestry or revel in the charming Norman architecture found in this enchanting French town.

  • 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.

All our vehicles are equipped with a P/A system that allows our guides to safely make commentaries during driving time. The good thing is, everyone can hear no matter where you are seated.
  • 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.

    No, we never include lunch on our private tours. However, if you would like to organize a lunch in a local restaurant then please let our team of travel experts know and they will do the rest.
