Le Mont Saint-Michel: Private Shuttle

Shuttle Description

Private Shuttle to Le Mont Saint-Michel

The Advantages of choosing a Private Shuttle

→ Our Private Shuttle services include complete flexibility regards transit times, and routes taken. We can stop anytime for a short break on the way, and grab a coffee, juice or a snack enroute, or even pop into a famous local orchard for some Calvados Tasting.

In addition we provide a free central Bayeux, Bayeux Train Station or Bayeux Hotel pick-up at 09:35 (for a 09:45 departure), with an ‘early-bird’ early-morning departure also available at checkout (for Bayeux or Caen-based. clients)

NB: €70 supplement for Caen pick-up / drop-off.

→ Our flexible Private Shuttle to Le Mont Saint-Michel affords the clients the rare opportunity to combine a visit to the Mont with a 1-hr visit to The Normandy Colleville American Cemetery or its stunning new visitor centre (refurbishhed 2019) – which can also be extended to include a 20-minute stop at Omaha Beach. Alternatively visit the fabulous Overlord Museum – situated just outside the cemetery gates – or even a local orchard, for some Cheese & Calvados Tasting, followed by a guided visit to Omaha Beach. This option is available with a Mon – Fri, 09:45 Bayeux Hotel departure (or Mon – Fri, 09:45 departure from Bayeux Train Station). If no options are chosen this shuttle returns to Bayeux at 16:45 (the optional ‘extras’, which are available at checkout, will extend the total time from 7 hrs to appx 9 hrs).

NB: If arriving in Bayeux by train for a 09:35 station check-in (travelling on the 06:00 – 07:00 service from Paris St. Lazare), then the purchase of a ‘modifiable ticket’ will be required (return train options to Paris are between 18:30 and 20:00, depending on the season).

Please see our Premium Transport Solutions for Le Mont Saint-Michel extended options, e.g.  2-hr Collevile US Cemetery & the Collevile US Cemetery ABMC’s multimedia Visitor Centre, with an Omaha Beach extended visit, and up to 4 hrs, (including a sitdown *lunch), inside the Mount. For a total roundtrip of appx 10hrs.

*Lunch not included in the tariff.

→ On the shuttle service to Le Mont Saint-Michel, there is also a ‘Fastpass’ option (Skip-The-Line ticket), which would mean no queueing or waiting inside The Mount at the entrance to The Abbey. Clients wishing to climb up to the top of The Mount to visit the Abbey can purchase this immediately upon entering The Mount (at the Tourist Office, just inside the gate). Upon seeing the lengthy queues in High-Season, clients are always delighted to be able to just pass them on by

→ You will have your own dedicated driver in a small private group throughout the entire duration of the shuttle-service, who will go out of his / her way to make your day memorable and endeavour to answer your every question.

Important Info for Paris-based clients: This shuttle is suitable for clients who are arriving in Bayeux by train by the 09:35 check-in time [Mon – Fri], from Paris St. Lazare Station (on the Cherbourg line), which is a direct service, often making a brief stop in Caen 12 mins before Bayeux. (Note: Sometimes clients need to change platforms in Caen, but more than often not! So, if unsure, please check with the ticket-controller onboard the train and be sure to stay ON the train at Caen, unless you’ve otherwise been directed (refer to the info on rail ticket!).

Should clients wish to choose any of our optional ‘extras’ at checkout, then please note that a ‘modifiable’ train ticket will be required since delays are frequently encountered at The Mount whilst queueing for the free shuttle bus to & from The Mount itself. Clients will then certainly be required to depart Bayeux for Paris on the last train at appx. 20:00.

*NB: Clients must check train timetables ahead of booking with us. It is the client’s responsibility to be at the scheduled pick-up location on time. Kindly also ensure to familiarize yourself with our T&Cs before travelling.

If selecting either Omaha Beach & Colleville US Cemetery, its Visitor Centre, Overlord Museum OR Calvados Tasting *options, then an 08:45 early-bird start is strongly recommended.
