Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Our guide was young, funny and in love with Paris. Her knowledge and exuberance added a great deal to the day. Giverny was beautiful. After seeing the objects of Monet's paintings, I had a greater appreciation. His house was mildly interesting, the grounds were the real treat. Versailles, oh my goodness. It was unbelievable. The headphones are easy to use and add a great deal to the tour. This was an unbelievable castle. It was both outrageously decadent and beautiful at the same time. It was easy to understand how the French were able to rise up and guillotine the royalty. It is hard to believe that this castle existed for royalty when there was so much poverty among the people. I was there on Saturday, so I was able to see the fountain show. If you do not make it for the fountain show, it will take nothing away from the beautiful gardens in which they reside. This is a must see while in France.

Paris City Tour by Minivan, Seine River Cruise and Lunch at the Eiffel Tower

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
As a solo traveler, this was a great way to see the city and meet fellow travelers. Our guide was very informative and pleasure to travel with. Not having to wait in line at the Eiffel Tower was a huge plus. As we moved quickly into the tower, we saw the very long line of people waiting. It was too cool to eat lunch in the Eiffel Tower and look out upon the city. It was just a great day. I thought it was a great way to get your bearing and decide what you wanted to in more detail. I knew that I wanted to see the Arc de Triomphe, but I did not need to walk to it. We circled it and I got great pictures. This tour allowed me to experience Paris in a compact period of time. This is a great tour if you want to avoid Eiffel Tower lines, have a limited amount of time in Paris, or simply want to get your bearing.

Loire Valley Castles Day Trip by Minivan: Chenonceau, Cheverny and Chambord

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a Paris focused trip, however I wanted to get outside of the city for a moment. As single traveler, I did not want to strike out completely on my own. The minivan tour was a great way to see the castles. Not only were the castles beautiful and architecturally interesting, the grounds were breath taking. Even though there was a lot to see, I did not feel rushed. I thought our tour guide prepared us well with great background before we entered. I also enjoyed lunch. The chef came out to greet our group and was very proud of his food and quintessentially French. This was a beautiful tour.
