This popular 3-stops St.Malo Mont St. Michel Dinan tour is actually mixing Brittany and Normandy routes with those exciting towns which will be visited comfortably thanks to one of our comfortable minivans.

Meet & Greet with your english-speaking expert driver. Nice minivan transport by scenic routes only, it will be by a comfortable 8-real seats + driver. We do organize private tours on request, that time departs and arrivals could be different on request only.

Our tour is always including a Mont Saint Michel Abbey admission ticket which makes you don’t need making the line up, which is important for your comfort.

First stop is Saint-Malo walled town, then Mont St.Michel, then Dinan, last transfer to Rennes. Sometimes this order can be different, when some want continuing the tour with us to the Normandy Dday beaches (Omaha, Pointe du Hoc, Bayeux, US cemetery), just ask for a quote then (2-days tour including Brittany, Normandie, is great) for a transport or a package including our minivan tour plus accommodation and extras.
