A Recent Review of this tour

Igor was very accommodating when we exited the cruise ship late in the morning. He had coffee and cookies waiting for us, which was a nice treat. He gave us options since we had a shorter time frame. We traveled to Mont St. Michel. We chose to take the horse and buggy ride and it was an amazing way to be introduced to the Mont. We decided to enjoy a leisurely lunch while on the Mont which ran late. We ended up literally running up and down the steps of the Mont as he finished his tour explanations. Fun!
