What people are saying about Mont Saint-Michel

Definitely worth a visit this unique location with valuable architectural heritage. A well-designed day trip, with an excellent guide Guillaume and a aprentice Haime. It is interesting to walk through the narrow streets with shops and restaurants to the top where the abbey is. Not for people with reduced mobility. See the wearher forcast, it might rain.

Thanks Victoria and the 2 trainees Philip and Laura for the wonderful trip. Mont Sant Michel is wonderful, especially feel very relax and having fun along the way communicate with you guys. Definitely will book another tour with BlueFox Travel when i will get a chance back to Paris in the future!

We had phenomenal guides! Francois and Claire were friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and entertaining. The abbey is magnificent - just don't be like us (the out of shape tourists with a baby stroller! LOL. Here's a tip: if you are traveling with a baby, be sure to bring a wearable carrier)
