Mont St Michel

We have a a group of 9 visiting Mt St Michel in late March of next year (from our base in Bayeux), I have a couple of questions that I am hoping for help with?

a) With the Mt. be crowded that time of year?
b) Is there a best time of day to go? Morning? Afternoon?
c) Is it appropriate/feasible to reserve tours ahead of time?

Thanks,

Rick

We went in late Oct and it was not THAT crowded when we arrived - but by the time we were walking back down from the Abbey the street was like the ground floor of Macy's at Christmas.

Not sure about reserved tickets - time would depend on how long it takes you to climb up all the way to the entrance of the Abbey ( a long steep climb on cobblestones).

The earlier you go, the fewer people there are.

My last trip there was for the night in the hotel zone just across from the Mont. I really liked it.
