It was a fantastic trip by bus. The site itself was breathtaking. The climb was a bit difficult but if not fit, then do it slowly at your own pace as I did. I got to take fantastic pictures as I rested.
Mont St Michel is a must-see; however, as big a fan as i am of Viator i would not do this tour with them again. Plusses were hotel pick up, smooth coordination and nice bus. Beyond that, the experience fell short in the areas of comfort breaks, horrible lunch service, and commentary. i have done this tour before and know it can be much more fullfilling.,
Seeing Mont Saint Michel was very cool to see. The place is crazy busy. The bus ride is long and a bit warm.
Not only the place is a must visit but requesting for a Spanish tour was great because of the quality of the guide:Marisa (It is really difficult to find good tours in Spanish) She made us laughed and enjoy and was really kind. She had an excellent knowledge of the place and the history and guided us perfectly. She gave us tips for the time destined to ourselves that were really very useful As in other tours offered by Viator the quality was once again perfect!! Our visit to Paris couldn’t be better!!
Our trip to mount st Michel was very well organized and well operated. However, at times we felt unwelcome because we did not purchase tickets for a guided tour with them. In addition, our bus driver was very rude to multiple riders including us. It is very disappointing because that one driver ruins the reputation for that company and I will never do business with them again.
Bus left 30 minutes late not good for such a long day to start Too much time at lunch once at the attraction Not enough time at the attraction since we had to leave to get back and got back at 10pm too late due to late departure!!! Need to be on time early for this to work bet
Very poor experience with Viator. Do not expect what you book online to be accurate. I had booked a package which I specifically pick one that has hotel pick-up after comparing several. The instructions was to get in touch 72 hours before. I had used the app managed booking to communicate with your operator and there was no response for 4 days in a roll. When I called upon reaching France, they told me that there was no hotel pick up in a 2nd call after I had called to confirm and the operator gave me a time for the hotel pick up. In the end, I had to go to the Paris CityVision office and ended up 10 mins late at 7:25am and the bus had departed without me! The lady at the counter was the most helpful and I ended up paying 70 euros more for a different day. Also she was the only person who gave me the correct time to arrive for the tour. She said that the managed booking part was with Viator. I have no idea whose responsibility is really is when you have a button for those who booked online to get in touch but it is just giving the customer the run around. Overall, bad experience with online booking tours via Viator including the airport pick up service also booked through Viator. The driver was more than 1 and a half hours late.
Since we spend whole day in the bus - 9 hrs round trip in bus. It would be nice to provide snacks/ drinks or stop at decent places for lunch or dinner not just gas station
The most amazing place to visit. Well organized company, the tour guide was so knowledgeable and pleasant. The food was not that great, but better than nothing. Overall a very interesting experience.
We chose the most basic option which is just the bus ride to Mont St Michel. Overall, the trip was comfortable and the ride is longer than the time we took to visit it. Climb up to see the beautiful view the island provides.
Definitely a must do - Just don't go on the day that the museums are closed. As every one goes to Mont Saint Michel
I notified Viator of my dietary restrictions at the time of reservation. I also let our tour guide know when I boarded the bus of my gluten intolerance. The restaurant would only provide overcooked mushy, overcooked veggies that were inedible and not the gluten free meal I requested. I did not expect gourmet fare but this really missed the mark.
Nice comfortable bus ride. Lunch with view of Mont St Michel. Informative guide both on bus about Normandy and at the Mont.
Excellent service. Excellent guide. We enjoyed our trip tremendously! We highly recommend this trip!
Truly .. Shame for the agency for going along with it and Shame for the relay to even consider serving boiling water with maybe less than 2oz of fish. . Not even salt or pepper in it.... Wasn't expecting much but definitely didn't think anyone would have the audacity to serve something like that in France. ... They figured it's 1 time tourists they are dealing with and obviously don't care. I was shocked !! Again tour was great and the guide we had was really good.
We we paid extra for pick up from our hotel, which was well worth the extra as it was a 6.30am pickup. We were taken to the Paris City Vision bus depot which was a very well organised company. This day tour was a huge day trip, but well worth doing. The drive was enjoyable, with a stop along the way. Our French Lunch was included when we arrived, which was just lovely. We then caught the shuttle bus with our guide who took us up every step and hill there was, I’m sure! We were not young, but handled the hills and steps quite well. It was an amazing place to visit, with a feeling of being in a totally different world. We had a little free time at the end and had to meet our guide back at the first stop from the shuttle bus. We became a little lost on our own finding our way down from Mont Saint Michele, but made it out and finally caught the shuttle bus back to our bus! It was a long drive home, but a good rest. We had a stopover on the way home, which was welcomed! We were given a taxi voucher when we arrived back to the depot, and our taxi had been booked and waiting for us! This made it so easy to get back to our hotel after a very long day. This is a very memorable day trip, well worth doing. Just a beautiful place to visit!
Nice time at MtMichael trip to and from was long and boring. It would ave been nice to have WI-Fi or a video of some sort concerning the destination. Bus ride took 4 hours each way.
