Going to Mont Saint Michel was great. Such a beautiful place to visit and great guides. It was about 3hrs to get there and the ride back was horrible!!! The A/C went out on the bus and it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. It would have been great if they had sent another bus to meet us at least half way so that we could have had a better ride home.

I believe a guide helped me take in the religious origins and lay out of the Abbey. It’s a one of a kind place on the Earth and easily done in one day

Everything was exceptionaaly fine except at the very end when somehow the taxi to the hotel did not materialize. All was made well when the office staff kindly refunded my out of pocket expense for the taxi to get to the hotel. I will highly recommend the tour

This tour is long hours, tire and exhausted but totally worth it. The tour lady was very knowledgeable of the history of Mont Saint Michel and Normandy. I learned so much about the French history from this tour.

The tour was great, it was an all day event, but they made the trip very informative and did not miss a step. The only thing I would recommend is that they pick a different food for lunch.

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!

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.

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.
