Giverny and Monet's Garden Bike Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was one of our best tours during our stay in Paris. Our British Guide Pete was excellent, informative, and had a great sense of humour. The bike ride was easy and fun. We enjoyed the picnic lunch and the local food from the town of Vernon (including Pete's recommendation of the cider). Monet's gardens were stunningly beautiful and beyond my expectations as I had wanted to visit them for many years. We had light rain on and off that day, but the ambient light in the garden was perfect for photography. As well the gardens were not exceptionally busy with crowds as it was midweek. All in all, this tour is highly recommended.

St-Ouen Flea Market: Bargain-Hunting Tour in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour was most fun and interesting. The market has amazing items, but many are very expensive. Our guide Marie was so nice, natural, and a great host. My only comment was that outside the Market the area was sketchy and we felt somewhat unsafe, especially in the Metro station, where aggressive young males were trying to sell tickets. We walked down to the next station which was fine. Watch your pockets.

Eiffel Tower, Paris Cabaret Show and Seine River Cruise

Paris, France

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This tour was a lot of fun. Our driver was fairly new and had some trouble negotiating the Paris streets to find hotels to pick up other passengers but had a good sense of humour and did his best. Dinner was great on the Eiffel Tower, and the Seine cruise was enjoyable, although the boat was very crowded. The best part was the Moulin Rouge, a terrific show, colourful, entertaining and well worth the cost, even though we went to the late show that started at 11:30 PM and got out about 1:30 AM.
