I was skeptical because this was my first experience with ViatoR which proved to be completely unwarranted. The unexpected benefit was riding through the beautiful countryside to get to Monet's house. The restaurant itself is very picturesque. The lunch was tasty but the dining room was a little cramped. Versailles was the highlight of the entire Parisian experience. I would recommend this tour. The guides were very knowledgeable and I would definitely use Viator again.
Our guide was excellent. Lunch was such a pleasurable experience. With limited time, your tours are definitely the way to go.
very well organised; good tour guide very knowledgeable; ample time for lunch; didn't feel rushed; on the whole very enjoyable trip
We were a party of four and we enjoyed the trip which ran smoothless, the gardens at Giverney were colourful and amazing; the lunch at the local water mill restaurant was very nice and the staff were also attentive. Versailles was out of this world - amazing how the other half lived in France of old - it sadly showed why the people changed the balance of power. There is far too much to see on the one quick visit to Versailles - which was over in such a short time - will have to go back and stay longer. overall the day trip was excellent well worth the effort to be part of the tour - thank you. The bus was very comfortable and the driver courteous. the guide was were knowledgeable. james H from Perth Western Australia.
The tour leaders were knowledgeable and we had plenty of time to look around both places. Great coach.
The tour was everything we expected and more. We only wish it had been two days long.
I absolutely loved visiting Giverney - just beautiful beyond words! Lunch was delicious at the scenic restaurant and although Versailles was extremely crowded, it was immensely interesting. The tour guide on the day was great.
This is a wonderful way to be able to take in a trip to Giverny and Versailles without giving up two days doing it separately. The meeting location in Central Paris is very easy to reach. The bus ride to Giverny is approx. an hour. If you are a lover of Monet's work, you must go to Giverny. The gardens are spectacular and touring his home is a view of his life and times. The time spent in Giverny was just the right amount of time. On the way to Versaille we stopped for lunch at a charming French restaurant in a beautiful setting. The food was very good as well as the service. Versaille is an important part of French history and its opulence is beyond belief. The tour was very well done. A bit crowded but that would be the case anyway. You definately need a guide. We felt the time at Versaille was adequate. If you want to spend hours in the Gardens then you might want to do a different tour with more time at Versaille. For us, this was just right. Our guide was knowledgeable, helpful, and very pleasant. No complaints and highly recommend.
This tour is great. A full day adventure and you get to see two amazing sites outside of Paris. The lunch that is included is charming.
I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
We enjoyed the visit to Giverny and Versailles very much. The flowers and gardens at both places were absolutely beautiful. The lunch was in a beautiful setting and very delicious. We would give it five stars and recommend the tour.
Well worth the money. Our tour guides were great. History lessons on the bus were a great preamble to the 2 destinations. Giverny is beautiful, especially the gardens. The lunch was perfect - great location and very good food. I would not want to try to see Versailles any other way than this. The lines to get in were huge, but we by-passed them. The guided tour inside was much more enjoyable than trying to navigate through on your own. Wouldn't change a thing.
We had such a great time in this trip! It was great to have a tour guide to tell us all the inside stories of Versailles and Giverny. The best part was that we didn't have to wait in line for anything. My husband and I were on our honeymoon to Paris and we wanted to make sure we saw everything and had a great time. Our guide was very funny. The lunch was also really good (include on your trip). Giverny is like taking a trip in to Monet's painting, it truly was amazing.
This was a truly lovely tour through beautiful countryside. Monet's house and garden were beautiful. Lunch at the Mill was superb and Versailles breathtaking. Would recommend this tour as part of anyone's visit to Paris
This is also a great day trip from Paris. The morning visit to Giverney is wonderful and after the commentaries, you have free time to visit the home and gardens of Monet at your leisure. Lunch at the old mill on the Apte River is delightful, especially if you have wonderful companions at your table, as we enjoyed.
The afternoon visit to Versailles is very interesting. It certainly causes one to reflect on the contrast of the incredible opulence of the palace as opposed to the grinding poverty of the general population.
Very pleasurable coach trip through the Normandy countryside to Giverny. Monet's Garden was everything that my wife and I expected and more. A real highlight. The restaurant was fantastic with its waterwheel, the food was great and the setting scenic. Versailles topped off the day. All in all my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the day and rated the experience one of the highlights of our overseas trip.
