Versailles and Giverny Day Trip

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful trip we first went to Giverny which was beautiful and very interesting to see. We then were taken to a lovely restaurant out in the countryside and the food was great. We then went off to Versailles and I would say that we could have spent a lot more time here, there is just so much to see. The tour guide could go in this place with us and she was very knowledgeable about the history and the furnishing and what is original and what is recreated. By the time we were done in the inside we only had 30 minutes to explore the gardens which isn’t enough time, but we still enjoyed the tour. The next time we come back to Paris I could do another trip just to Versailles to catch all the info I may have missed and to get more time exploring the outside. It was beautiful and the people that give the tours are very nice and easy to understand.

Champagne Region Day Trip from Paris by Minivan

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This trip was great and our tour guide was too. He was very easy to understand and was very knowledgeable about the area and the entire process of Champagne making that you learn about on this tour. The information on the making of the Champagne and the grapes and the region does get a bit redundant as you go along but it does help you retain the info. We first went to a small producer of Champagne that sells part of their grapes and then produces for local sale only with the rest of the grapes. Then we went to Moet and Chandon and it is interesting to see the difference of how it is done even though Moet and Chandon tries to give the impression that things are still done in the old fashioned way when you can tell they are not (a little too much dust on the bottles). Very interesting tour and would recommend it to anyone.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This is a wonderful tour but it is very long. We first went to Windsor Castle which I could have spent a lot longer there and in the little area around it. After that we were off to Stonehenge which my husband and I thought was very interesting see if amazing to wonder what it could have been used for so long ago. After this we are off to Bath and this is another place we could have spent a lot longer at just listing to the info on the headset they give you and also could have spent a lot more time in the town of Bath itself. It is a great tour if you are trying to maximize your time and see as much as possible, but if you have more time I would split it up because it is a long day and there is so much to see at each stop. The tour guides were wonderful and had a ton of knowledge and information to share.
