Why choose us?
There are many operators offering tours and shuttles to the Mont St Michel, so why should you choose us?
Some other operators offer guided tours
We don't because we feel it is not necessary. Free guided tours are already available at the abbey.
Some operators say they offer a detailed explanation at the Mont St Michel
Perhaps they do but we do too! The difference is we do it inside the vehicle as we are driving so you are not stood outside in the elements. As soon as we arrive, you are free to explore at your leisure. We don't feel it is necessary to waste any of your valuable time.
Other operators offer the service for the same price as Bayeux Shuttle
Yes, but are they offering you a fast pass entrance ticket to the abbey for the same price? We are!
Things to consider
Please note that this is not a guided tour. Free guided tours are available from the abbey guides. Audio guides are available to rent in the abbey should you wish to conduct the visit on your own.
If you are concerned that you need a guided tour, please read the comments from a previous client:
"The shuttle to Mont ST. Michel is the answer to a perfect day trip! So nice to leave driving to someone else, and you can sit and relax, watch the short videos when you pass a town of interest or look up the town for more information with free onboard WiFi. Incredible value for the cost. It is just transportation to and from MSM, no tour guide. You do not need one!"

History of Mont St Michel
Come and hear about the famous legend of the archangel Saint Michel beating the devil on that rock in the middle of that bay. Imagine the knights in their armors defending Mont Saint Michel during the hundred years war. Share the life of the monks in the abbey and imagine them writing on parchments in the scriptorium. See the pilgrims walking bare feet through the bay in the quick sands…
Mont Saint Michel is one of the only places where the heritage of our French and European history can be visited all at once.
The abbey on very top of the rock is the earlier building started in 708 AD. Then the monastery and especially the “marvel” (including the most beautiful cloister in Europe) were constructed. Visiting the abbey which is a National Monument, brings you throughout all the different types of architectures from the 8th century to Renaissance.
Then you can wonder through the village and see some of the houses dating back to the 14th century while shopping.
Walk along the fortress and feel the determination of those soldiers in armor who had to fight the enemies from the ramparts.
Mont Saint Michel is the emblem of the evolution of the European society from the very early 8th century to the Renaissance time.
Coming to France and not seeing Le Mont Saint Michel would be like going to Egypt and not see the pyramids so hop on a Bayeux Shuttle bus and visit one of France's most impressive tourist destinations!
