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.

Marie has lived in North America and in the UK, and has now settled in Normandy. Her guiding work covers this beautiful region as well as Paris and the Loire valley. She specializes in the subjects of the arts and literature, history, gardens and gastronomy.
