This was a great way to do the river cruise and to see the lights of Paris. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel which worked wonderfully because it started at 8:30 PM and we had a very busy day walking around Paris.
Our tour guide was excellent and spoke very good English. We were picked up at our hotel and went to Giverny via n 8 passenger van with other English speaking tourists. At the recommendation of our guide, we started in Monet's water lily garden and worked out way backwards which helped avoid the large August crowds. Lunch at Moulin de Forges was wonderful. This is a beautiful mill and although the dining area is very large we had efficient service. The food was excellent and lunch included wine. We next went to Versailles and were escorted inside without waiting in line. We visited in August so the crowds were quite large. The time at Versailles is a bit limited so be sure to read the details of the trip. We had plenty of time at Giverny which is smaller. At Versailles we had about an hour inside and an hour at the gardens.
