The tour was excellent. Our guide Kareem was knowledgeable and friendly. Despite the rainy and cool conditions we had a great time. Giverny was the stop my daughter had been wanting to visit for years and it did not disappoint. Versailles, again was crowded, but our guide did a great job of showing us the palace in an excellent manner. Lunch stop was also great. Excellent lunch. All in all a great tour.

Our driver picked us up right on time outside our apartment rental. He was very pleasant and the group included our family of four, along with three other people. Giverny was beautiful, but somewhat crowded the morning we were there. The crowds, however, did not detract from our enjoyment of the gardens and home. Absolutely beautiful! We then had lunch at an old mill which is now a restaurant. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere very picturesque and quaint. We then traveled to Versailles, which was definitely crowded, but we were able to see everything we wanted to see. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and communicated with us through headsets throughout our tour. We had a little time after touring the palace to visit the gardens on our own. There wasn't a lot of time left to do this, but we found it to be enough time to walk around and see the highlights. This was one of our favorite excursions the entire week we were in Paris. It was fun to get out of the city for a little while and enjoy the countryside. Overall, we would highly recommend this tour.

Our tour did not go on the June 25 2015, it went on June 26 2015 because of Paris taxi strikes. On June 26 2015 our tour guide picked us up from our Hotel and picked other two families. The tour guide was very nice explained everything, took us to Giverny where we were on our own pace going through the gardens, which were beautiful and the house which was quaint, the gift shop which i bought something and the little museum and gardens that surround it, not forgetting the poppy field in the back, everything was just exquisite. Next stop was at a restaurant, beautiful place and three course lunch with red wine, delicious.
Then we went to Versailles palace, the tour guide explained everything and we also had free time in the gardens to take pictures. At the end of the day we were all dropped off at our Hotel. It was a great and a beautiful day. I would take Viator again.

The entire day was delightful, with the possible exception of the mobs -- which is not your fault! Our guide was gracious, knowledgeable, and articulate. The sleeper event was the luncheon at the country café while traveling from Giverny to Versailles. Simply super.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This was a great day. Our guide was well informed, and helped us get through all the crowds. Giverny was a must see .

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great tour and tour guide. Only drawback was that our guide had to translate in two languages english and French which meant we had less time during the Versailles tour to see everything.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This was the very best tour I did. Our tour guide treated us like gold. He picked us up at the hotel. He gave us information, stayed right with us during the tour, getting tickets for us and good viewing spots, but gave us some free time to buy souvenirs, brought the van around to pick us up, took us to lunch at a WONDERFUL old mill with a gourmet meal. In the end he returned us to our hotel. I did this my first day and it was wonderful to have this pampering my first day while I was learning my way around Paris.

The Tour of Giverny and Versailles was wonderful. Gregory was our tour guide and he was so accommodating. He had a lot of knowledge about Monet and the Royalty of the palace. He was also very funny. For lunch we ate at this quaint little restaurant. The food was delicious. I would definitely recommend you guys, But I have to say that I did think it was a little Pricey.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

It was a wonderful day, on time pick up, great lunch and good tour guides. As I am american I found the Versailles guide to talk a bit fast and sometimes hard to understand, but he was doing his best!
