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.

Great tour! Door to door, very knowledgable guide, only four of us on the tour made for a very personalized experience. The guide went over background of Versailles on the drive there so when we toured it was great to know some of the history behind it. It was very crowded but not guides fault.

Versailles was overwhelming but our guide Dario helped by explaining everything we needed to know to make our visit enjoyable. Monet and #39;s garden in Giverny was amazing. The gardens are beautiful and have been maintained just as Monet painted them. Great day out of Paris.

Eric, our guide was very good, made everyone comfortable. Lunch at Fourges was very good, nice to be somewhere in the quiet of the country. Timing for touring both Versailles and Givenchy was just right.

This tour was a great way to see Versailles and Giverny with a small group. The added bonus was a great lunch at a river front restaurant. The guide Chris did a nice job providing information all along the way of our tour.
