We bought our tickets from the Saint Malo tourism bureau for the Abbey and our return bus tickets from one of the local bus operators who take you from near the tourism centre. The bus takes you to the tourism centre near Mint Saint Michel. You can then get the free shuttle (there was quite a line) or walk about 25 minutes on a well marked path. The walk around the Mont does need some fitness and mobility impaired persons will be challenged. There are plenty of restaurants on the Mont and back near the tourism centre. They are a little expensive, we took our own food. There are plenty of places to buy souvenirs and a couple of other smaller museums. A great day, excellent views and well worth it.


The tour was ver informative and a nice length at an hour. Make sure to read the instructions about where to start. Once I got there everything went well :-)


This is a bait and switch scam. It doesn't include entry to the Abbey. Also, you can purchase an audio tour once you're inside the Abbey for less money. The Abbey is beautiful and I highly recommend it! Just don't waste your money on this experience.


It was beautiful and stunning. It’s like Hogwarts in real life. A magnificent infrastructure. Amazing!

This ticket did not include purchase to Abbey or audio guide. This purchase was very misleading. What is purchased is free to enter besides map which you can get at arrival. This is a scam.


A wonder of the world for sure! Worth every minute spent exploring it..however the audio app did not work and that was disappointing, we ended up reading placards as we went. The over-abundance of souvenir shop is a bit much.


An historical place with an intriguing past! Magical in appearance and one of the most photographed places on earth! The audio guide explains in detail the years of history belonging to this island and individual points of interest as you progress through the Abbey! Pay attention and let your mind go back through the ages of history!


No Way of canceling trickets since they take 100%. This is not a tour its an Audio book dont buy it just take the headphones When you arive. Great tour but not this product (not a tour just a Audio book)


Nice to be able to have a tour without being a part of a large tour. No set times just start when you get there.


Ein schönes Erlebnis und beeindruckende Aussichten. Trotz Nebensaison relativ gut besucht und voll, aber absolut machbar. Die Museen sind leider gar nicht zu empfehlen und die ganze Anlage ist trotz Lageplan eher unübersichtlich und schlecht beschildert. Der kostenlose Shuttle-Service war super. Es ist zu empfehlen gut zu Fuß zu sein, da es besonders in der Abtei seeeeeehr viele Treppen gibt. Im ganzen ein tolles Erlebnis und sehr zu empfehlen !
