Great
Very crowded. And there was a woman complaining that there were too many steps... at Mont St Michel. Can’t win ‘em all.

Loved the trip, guide was funny. Wish he spent a bit more time on the history. I like hearing that, but for most others he would have struck the right balance.

Liam was actually our tour guide. Romain only did the portion in the water. Liam was wonderful. He was funny, easy going, silly and had great stories. The weather was awful, and he just rolled with it, gave us all ponchos and had fun. Romain was very interesting, had a lot of knowledge and braved the water with us despite the terrible weather. The tour was absolutely worth it, especially because the train shortened the travel time and Liam was so wonderful.
