The other half of your Mont St. Michel experience

Yes, tour Mont St. Michel. If you can, spend the night on the island so you can say hello to the sunrise and experience the island when it isn't packed with tourists. But be sure to venture out onto the sands. Our GetYourGuide Ludovic was great, telling us about the tides, the marine life, and the steps that have been taken to keep Mont St. Michel an island--to prevent it, that is, from being "sanded into" joining the mainland. He also told us how to get out of quicksand! Be warned though, this tour requires lots of walking, some of it on treacherously slippery clay.
