What You Can Expect

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Giverny and Versailles Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Depart from your central Paris hotel and head first for Giverny, where Monet once lived. Wander through the exquisite gardens — the water lily garden is the most famous, appearing in so many of Monet’s paintings — and tour the great artist’s former home.

The next stop is the Musée des Impressionnismes-Giverny not far from Monet’s house. The museum features an extensive Impressionist collection as well as some temporary exhibits. Stop for lunch at the charming Moulin de Fourges restaurant (included).

Continue your tour to the famous Palace of Versailles. Inside, see the suite where Louis XIV lived, the much-photographed Hall of Mirrors and the apartment of the Dauphin and Dauphine. Outside, explore the expansive gardens and watch the water dancing in the impressive fountains.

Versailles Fountain Show Special Program:
Note that Saturdays and Sundays from April to October and Tuesdays from mid-May through June the fountain displays are set to music to spectacular effect. The music used in the show dates from the time of Louis XIV’s court. Entry fees to see the show are included in the cost of this tour.

Our tour guide was kind, courteous and very knowledgable. We had a great time!!! Would recommend this to anyone going to France.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable not only of Giverny and Versailles but Paris as well. Only disappointment was that the museum in Gverny did not have many Monet pictures.

Everything went very well. Punctuality and friendliness of the guide. It was a dream of mine to know Giverny and Versailles also. It was a great option to hire the services of Viator.

Everything about this trip was amazing! It was incredible to see the classic sites of Giverny and Versailles first hand. The magnificence of them does not come to life until you are walking through their pathways and hallways. The lunch spot is beyond adorable and feels classically French. Plus the fresh quality and deliciousness of the food and wine doesn't hurt either! Nothing about this trip would have been as good without our wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable guide, Honoray I probably spelled that wrong. He was an endless source of knowledge and humor for us as we went about our day.
