Full description
Meet your guide in Montparnasse station in central Paris, and hop on the first high–speed train out of the city. From Rennes, take a private minibus to Mont Saint Michel. Led by a specially–trained naturalist guide, kick off your shoes and walk out onto the tidal flat to discuss the unique environment surrounding Mont Saint Michel, and even see some of the dreaded quicksand.

Enjoy stunning views of the village and monastery before a 2–hour tour of the Medieval city streets and fortified walls. Discover the colorful history of this tiny, but strategically-important community. 

After a break for lunch, head inside the Abbey to soak in the Gothic architecture and its history. Afterwards, you might just want to conquer the village yourself. At the end of the tour, hop back on the bus, then train, for the journey back to Paris.
