Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
Please contact us to discuss in more detail your mobility concerns so that we can best advise. We can arrange a car service for visitors with mobility concerns. We don't recommend using public transportation to travel to and from Mont Saint-Michel. Please note that there is no elevator on the Mont Saint-Michel and there are multiple steps to climb to access the main sites. The main street is paved and sloped, so moving around in a wheelchair is extraordinarily complicated.
Alexander got a First in modern history at Oxford and retains an abiding passion for the subject. He has lived and worked – mainly in publishing – in France for over twenty years, first in Paris and now in Normandy, where he is carrying out an eco-friendly restoration on his old fisherman’s cottage in Port-en-Bessin. This small fishing port, noted for its scallops, is situated on the coast just 10 km north of the medieval splendors of Bayeux, and is tucked into the cliffs which separate the sites of the American and British D-Day landing beaches. His knowledge of the Normandy landings is enhanced by the fact that his father was a member of the British commando unit which liberated his adopted town in June ’44, and indeed Alexander has recently published a book on this very subject. His love for the region also led him to study to qualify as an official regional guide, and sharing his enthusiasm for Normandy and its long history has become something of a vocation.
A native of Australia, Geoffrey has been guiding in Normandy for over 17 years. He specializes in the D-Day landing beaches and Mont Saint Michel; however, he knows the whole region inside out and enjoys sharing this beautiful part of the country and its history to visitors of France.
